Full-time hours

In addition to raising three children, I have twenty years of childcare experience. My oldest child was born with Down Syndrome and is now a thriving, independent, wonderful young man. My two beautiful and accomplished daughters complete our family and together, we have made a world of difference in instilling appreciation for the uniqueness that each child and individual brings. I consider myself tireless, dedicated and exceedingly patient. Do values matter? They define me! My commitment and genuine love of children has taken me into the homes and hearts of too many families to count over my years of providing childcare. Each family has become a part of my own and added to my life’s experiences. I am CPR and first aid certified, actively pursue trainings and education in many areas of child development and have worked closely with early intervention, public and private schools. I would welcome an opportunity to provide you with more specifics about my background and qualifications and especially excited about introducing you to the many families with whom I have had the pleasure of helping and guiding.
