I started as a nanny right out of high school in order to help financially through college my degree is in psychology but after having 3children & loving time working with children im still in the child care business. I have 10plus years as a nanny & 10plus years in a child care center setting. Working with children has become more than a job it is a passion. I love teaching children & watching them grow & learn. Every child is different & develops at their own pace although i believe it is very important to keep them on track & not them fall behind. I also believe its wonderful to watch & help those children who progress quickly as well. As a mother i believe in treating every child as he or she is my own & not only care for them but love them & comfort them while they are away from their parents or guardians!!!!
