As someone who has chosen a career path in the field of childcare, I have much experience. There are many different aspects in which I have worked with children. I have volunteered at my church in the past to work as a teacher at Vacation Bible School, been a camp counselor, babysat/nannied for five years, and taught English classes. I am comfortable with many different aspects of childcare, including but not limited to, diaper changing, bathing, preparing home cooked meals, planning age appropriate activities, doing laundry, cleaning, putting children down for naps, and helping with homework.

I have been caring for children since I was about 13 and have loved it ever since. I loved it so much I figured I'd make a career out of it and get my degree in elementary education. I've come to find that I absolutely ADORE the little ones (1-4) and I love making fun arts and crafts with the ones a little older! I also love baking/cooking with any spare time I have. And I also work at Cross Creek Church on Sunday mornings in the nursery (ages 1-4) and have fallen in love with all the little ones!
