Full-time hours

I have some experience working with infants & toddlers, but most of my experience is with children that are of preschool-age and older. From a very young age, I discovered my passion for working with children! In middle school, I started a group for elementary-age girls that met twice a month at our church. I made regular phone calls to the parents, planned hands-on activities, & coordinated fun outings that took place once a month outside of our regular meetings. As a teenager & young adult, I helped in the church nursery, taught ages 2-11 at church, babysat, worked with children on mission trips (in Mexico, Jamaica, AZ, & NJ), & coordinated/carried out VBS programs for churches in NJ & Jamaica. I majored in elementary education in college & I have been a classroom teacher in VA public schools for the last 6 years. I taught pre-K summer school 1 summer & then taught fourth grade for 4 years. I've spent the last 2 years teaching Kindergarten. I love kids and I am committed to providing the very best childcare!!
