Dear Parents,

Thank you for considering Sweet Dreams in the Willow as you look for a safe and loving overnight care environment for your child. As a mom and professional who has devoted her three-decade career to early childhood care and education, I understand that each family and child has individual needs. Parents in our community working non-traditional hours deserve quality overnight care for their infants and children. I relate to and can exceed your expectations.  My suburban home just five miles from Lancaster city is a safe and loving place where your child will be in practiced hands, a nurturing atmosphere, and a consistent home-away-from-home environment for bedtime, overnight, and morning routines. I know that nothing is more important to you than the peace of mind of knowing that your child can continue to be safe and well-rested while you are at work, pursuing your own professional dreams.


Looking forward to the opportunity to meet you,

Sharon Emerick

Parent Testimonial

When we had newborn, premature triplet infants, Sharon Emerick stepped in to care for us. Sharon provided overnight care so that my husband and I could get some sleep for work each day.  She woke me up only to nurse a baby (or two).  Sharon is a dedicated caregiver who kept our three newborns safe, calm, and loved when we could not.  I say that Sharon cared for "us" because she was, quite literally, a life-saver for us to become a happy, healthy, functional family.  We are forever indebted to Sharon for her guidance , wisdom and genuine caring.
