I have over 20 years of childcare experience. I started babysitting when I was 15. That first summer I cared for 5 kids, of 3 different families, in my home. So I suppose one could say I had my own in-home daycare when I was 15! I also worked in a daycare center when I was in college and I did in-home day care when my kids were little. I have enjoyed teaching children's church K-5th grade for several years and for several summers, I was the lead volunteer at a center during their family camp (I was in charge of the 1-2 year-olds). I have taken several child development classes as well as human development.
