I enjoy taking care of kids and learn as much from them as they do from me! A bit about me; I have 10+ years of experience taking care of children and have found myself all over the world with different families. I spent a year in New Zealand with a wonderful family of a 2 year old and 4 year old, driving them to activities, going on walks and reading lots and lots of books. The past two winter seasons I have been living in Vail, CO and taking care of children ages 2-7 for two separate families. Activities ranged from homework help, meal preparation, driving children to swim, ballet, music, and sports classes and skiing on the slopes. I would love to chat with you more about your childcare need and what you would be looking for.
