Welcome to Nan's Family Daycare
My name is Nancy Hildonen, and I am a Massachusetts state licensed daycare provider (License #2083665).  I have two children of my own, a 16 1/2-year old daughter, and a 13-year old son.  I have been licensed as an in-home daycare provider in Ipswich since July 2008.  In October 2015, I earned a Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential, which was renewed again in May 2021.  In March 2019, I received my Lead Teacher Certificate for infant/toddlers and preschool from The Department of Early Education and Care.
