I was her staff coordinator for a year and half at The Creative Connection Day Care Center, before it closed. She is by far the most in formed childcare worker I have ever know. She worked with infants and twaddlers. The children loved her and she has the patients of a saint even with the worst of it. Her knowledge of care and the rules for day care is top job. Patient and loving to all children and always kept the primary care givers informed of everything. Ran a tight, pleasant room and made sure her team knew their jobs and always extended a helping hand, she kept a clean and safe environment fro the little ones. I know she will be an accent wherever she goes.

I worked side by side with Diana Merz in the infant room at The Goddard School. I started a few months before she did but she came with training and years of experience. I loved working with her. She was dedicated to the children, hard working, compassionate and taught me things about day care that I didn't realize I didn't know. I've raised my children and worked for years but this was a new field for me and Diana was just awesome. The parents, babies and staff loved her.
