Hi! My name is Lorraine. I am a stay at home mom and I care for a couple of children here in my Cortland home. I have been providing in-home child care for over ten years and I have two daughters of my own- they are 12 and 18 years old. I have had many happy families go through my childcare. I take pride in how satisfied I have been able to keep the families that have chosen me as their childcare provider. I have had families who have stayed for numerous years until their children enter school- and sometimes even longer, if before and after school care is needed. I really do love the children that we welcome into our home and would be honored to care for your child also. Thank you for considering my home for your child's enjoyment and development! I hope to hear from you soon!

I have babysat for 6 years. My longest run with a family was watching their twins and older sister. The twins were premature so they had some developmental issues that I had to be mindful of and reinforce learning. I started watching them when they were 1.5 years old until they were 5, which is when I went away to college. There old sister at the time was 4 and I watched her until she was 8. Other jobs include smaller children through the ages of 14 and 15. Every family brings a new challenge, but I am very good at adapting. I have experience with behavioral issues, potty training, older kids who don not require as much supervision, and smaller children who demand attention. I am an adaptable person and I am willing to take care of your family in any way that you will like, as I know it can be hard to welcome someone into your family when trusting them with your child. I am first aid, CPR, and lifeguard certified and very comfortable with my skills in all three.
