I spent 20 years at home as a stay at home mom of 3 children. I loved every minute. I enjoyed the opportunity to read, play games, do crafts, watch all their activities and accomplishments in school, sports, church, and participate as a volunteer for school parties, fund raisers, field days and class trips, etc. I also nannied for a family for three years beginning when the child was 8 mos. and ended when they moved as she was close to 4 years old. It was a great experience to be able to work one on one with her and watch her grow and learn. As she got older we made trips to the park, weekly story time at the library, group play through Blue Valley School system, and occasionally came over to my home to read books and have lunch.

Children have always been a passion of mine but it wasn't until I was 17 and started work at a preschool (ages newborn-9 years) that I knew it was a lifelong career that I never wanted to give up. I love kids of all ages. I'm highly experienced with infants to 5 years but I am definitely capable of managing older children. I am CPR certified and have been in the childcare industry for almost 3 years now. Before and during my extent at the daycare I babysat for a multitude of families.
