Tammi Campbell has always been around kids and has provided in-home childcare services in Broken Bow for about 25 years.
“My mom has always done daycare, always been around it, just love it. And I have got three boys and I wanted to stay home with them. [I] just love it,” Campbell said.
Tammi has owned her Broken Bow house for six years with her three sons growing up having extra playpens in their rooms. About one year ago, however, Tammi purchased the house next door for her family and transformed the family’s old house into an entire standalone daycare. Campbell said it is nice to have their own space, even if it means having to walk to work now.
With an ever-growing need for childcare in town, Tammi loves working with local families to provide childcare and usually fills up with eight kids at a time. Campbell said she is grateful for her helpers including her aunt Kathy Province and Jessica Swanson who teaches preschool at House of Hugs. Tammi is also thankful for her part-time helpers including Dani Osmond, Kelsey McAbee, and Morgan Harms.
When asked why she decided to join the chamber, Tammi says she just loves to be involved in community events. The staff at House of Hugs provides all necessary supplies for the kids and will also go on occasional fieldtrips.
“I like to be involved in the community,” Campbell added. “It’s just fun, I like to be involved.”
