​​​​​​​Our Family  

Just a little about us, we are Scott and Susan Riggs. We have 5 daughters who are mostly grown, so we are practically empty nesters. Our daughters are Kristin, Sara , Skylynn, Samantha and Abby.  Our oldest Kristin has made us grandparents 3 times over with 3 sweet boys Jackson, Grayson & Harrison.  Our 1st granddaughter Aurora was born last September to Samantha. Family means the world to us. Honorable mention: Bailey, our cuddly standard poodle and Truman the crazy Bernedoodle.

My name is Susan, I am a mother that loves children and I enjoy sharing in their lives. I have ran daycare in our home since 1998 and it has been a pleasure to be a part of the lives of each child that we have had in our home. We are honored that parents entrust us with the care of their children and we take our job very seriously. My husband Scott and I, participate in many school sponsored and community activities and we are also active in our church. We always strive to be role models and have always expected our own children to be great role models for the children in our care. It's important to us to keep improving our business. Scott and I attend workshops and seminars on child development, creative learning, fun activities for children, nutrition, safety, how to handle difficult behaviors in children and Kindergarten readiness. I serve as a district leader on the Executive Board of the Blue Springs Child Care Association.
