For over ten years, I have been a private childcare provider for birth to school age children. In most cases I have started work in the early mornings and designed the daily schedule for the children until the parents are home in the evenings. In addition to holistic educational planning, I also handle errands, doctor and dentist appointments and most importantly, nutritious meal planning. I have two degrees in education and childhood development and continue educating myself in this and other areas of study.
