I did a lot of babysitting when I was a teen. I am passionate about working with children and families! I enjoyed the years I worked in early childhood classrooms, planning and implementing fun learning activities. I have a lot of experience planning fun activities and keeping a childs routine the same. I am a nature lover, enjoy taking walks with children, helping them learn about trees, insects, animals. I like to learn WITH children, not “teach” them! Children are natural learners, and just need us as adults to provide them age appropriate learning opportunities My philosophy is that communication with parents/family benefits the child(ten) in so many ways. I expect to communicate before and after caring for your children, and am very honest, open.
