From the time my youngest was infant to 6 yrs I was licensed in child care. I cared for only close friends and families children, however. I could have up to 5 children in my care including my own on any given day. I did this full time for 3 years. Education, healthy eating and being active are very important to me. A typical day in my home was filled with crafts, eductional studies and active play time. I treat children as if they are my own. I give extra love and comfort to help soothe if nap time is hard. I care for tumbles, scrapes and bruises with compassion. I lead by example of how to treat others with kindness and respect. And equally important, we have fun! Laughter and silliness are so important. Not taking ourselves too seriously is a good thing to gauge, even as adults! Aside from raising my own children, son 14 and daughter 9, I am still the friend that people call to care for their littles.
