Meet the founder.


Samoy Smith

Being a stay at home mom of three who also home schools, Samoy spent a lot of time with her kids. But she also likes to live a fulfilling life. However finding childcare for her wonderful children proved to be a challenge.  That has never stopped her from going to community meetings, conferences, workshops, classes or anything else for that matter. She just brought her kids along with her. It was a bit of a struggle to balance taking care of her kids and listening to the speaker but it was better then missing the event entirely. This got her thinking "why don't we have childcare at events". And so Detroit Playcare was born. Parents should never have to choose between their children and work, a social life, a learning opportunity, community involvement, social activism, or anything else.
