Raising Munchkin, LLC is the result of years of developing and presenting workshops which engage and inspire. Combining their knowledge and experiences, Bunny and Lacey provide workshops on management skills, team building, conflict resolution, child care program management, and parenting support. They approach professional development with humor and insight and view it as an opportunity to explore new research and information, examine innovative strategies for complex challenges, and practical solutions to ensure agencies “work smarter, not harder.”
