TLC TO AIR "DAYCARE DIVAS" ON DECEMBER 29 AT 10PM
What do you get when you put an outspoken single teacher and a stay-at-home mom together in a room with kids as they attempt to run their own daycare business? Chaos! On Tuesday, December 29 at 10 PM ET/PT, TLC will air two back-to-back half-hour episodes of DAYCARE DIVAS, following best friends Leslie Napolitano and Christine Collica as they embark on a new chapter in their lives and find out if they have the compatibility to start a successful daycare business together in New York City.
In these two episodes, viewers will witness the daily stress of running a daycare, but more importantly the challenges Christine and Leslie face as they try to manage a room full of sassy and energized kids.
With these larger than life personalities, these two women certainly have their hands full. At the end of the week-long trial, they will quickly determine whether they have what it takes to continue with the business or if they need to call it quits.
In her early 30s, Leslie is single and works as a special needs elementary school teacher in NYC. She holds a masters degree in special ed and holds a bachelors degree in elementary/general education, with experience supervising staff and teaching kids age six and under. Her teaching and discipline style is very by the book. She likes to shop and spend time with her close knit group of friends.
In her early 40s, Christine is married to a NYC firefighter and has three children. As a full-time stay-at-home mom, she often takes care of her friends' children. Her hands-on mothering experience really comes through in her approach at the daycare, where she also utilizes her "fly by the seat of your pants" strategy to raising and teaching children. She holds a bachelors degree in English and is a certified, tenured teacher with the NYC Board of Education.
DAYCARE DIVAS is produced for TLC by Boy Wonder Productions.
