Home Away From Home Child Care Center was started in 1996 when Ann Bouwhuis saw a need for quality childcare in the Maplewood area. She felt that it was important for parents to be able to leave their children in a small homelike environment with qualified employees who truly love children. Over the past twenty years Home Away From Home has been recipient of many development grants to help them grow in to a terrific center. One of Home Away From Home’s major goals is to be considered an extension of the family, and in past years have had families come back with second and third children. Home Away From Home has also partnered with Maplewood School District, in order to insure the best childcare for the Maplewood community. Currently Ann and Wolfgang (her husband) own  Home Away From Home Child Care Center Inc which operates in two locations, Maplewood and Bourbon,  Missouri.
