Susan Levacy holds 3-year-old Dexter Fox on the steps of Little Tykes Playschool as they wait for Dexter's mom Sara Fox to pick him up Thursday. Levacy is the owner, as well as the sole provider at Little Tykes Playschool, where she currently has about 10 children enrolled. "My grandmother did child care and that's how I got into it, but now I just can't stop because it keeps me so grounded," said Levacy, who has been a child care provider for 17 years.
