Taylor H. - Seeking Work in Plainfield

I worked at a Daycare in Plainfield, IN for 2 years. I left due to college and am currently a 3rd semester student at IUPUI studying for a Bachelor's in Nursing. At the Daycare I worked at I was assigned to all ages but my specialty and what I love is infant to 3 year olds. I prepared lesson plans, activities, and also prepared snack and lunch for 6+ kids. I also filled out Daily sheets everyday to let the guardian know what took place during the hours of the day. Crafts were a part of Lesson planning, so I came up with morning and afternoon crafts.
