With her own curriculum and plans for plenty of time outside, Wadena resident Karon Thew is opening a child care business in mid-November.

Thew’s passion for working with children started with the role model of her old sister who opened a daycare in Alexandria.

“Ever since I was little, about 7 years old, I’ve always known that I’ve wanted to work with children. I always said I wanted to be a babysitter like my big sister,” Thew said.

Thew began working towards her own day care her senior year of high school at Wadena-Deer Creek with a Child Development Associates in 2017. And with her and her husband’s new home she is excited to encourage children to work and play together.

“The things I really enjoy most about working with children is just watching them learn and grow. It’s just a really cool process and it’s really rewarding to see all the hard work that they do pays off,” Thew said.


She is licensed for infants to 11-year-olds with current openings for two years old and up. Thew’s curriculum includes learning the alphabet, colors and shapes for children in preschool and lessons to further older children’s education.
