I worked in after school child care at SBEC or what is now called north point. I took care of 10-15+ Kindergarten aged Children in a classroom setting from the time school hours ended until parents picked them up. I also worked at north point during the summers. The daycare program hours were from 7:30-3:30. I was required to take Red Cross training classes while working at north point and am certified in CPR and first aid. I am also a mother to a 6 year old boy. I love kids and have tons of patience.
