Daycare Center

Rainy Day Childcare

3001 Madison Street, Alameda, CA 94501


Emergency, Backup or Short-Term Childcare in your home or mine. Daytime, weekends and overnight too.

I may care for sick children in your home if I have no other children that day.

ABOUT ME: I am a single mom of 2 young school aged boys. I have many years experience in caring for children, both my own and others. I am not a sit-around kind of mom. I am a kind, nurturing, eco-conscious person. Your child will have games, crafts, cooking, outdoor time and some outings to the park or other fun places (at your ok).

ABOUT MY HOME: I have a large home on the East End of Alameda with a playroom filled with toys appropriate for children of various ages. I also have a fenced driveway and a large yard with play structures, swings, grass and a fun little hill to run down. I have an extra bed and a crib for nap times and a large kitchen for making nutritious meals and snacks (plus a few treats). We watch very little television in my home - what we do watch is educational.

AVAILABILITY: Flexible hours, short-notice, after school pick-up, school days off, weekends and overnights too. I'll fill in for your usual child care provider during illness, vacation, family emergencies or mom needs some time off. I'm also available as a backup, or an occasionally regular basis or a few hours a week. I may even be available to care for your sick child in your home if you need to go to work.

Since I am a single mom, I can make arrangements with my boys' dad for some extended periods or overnights if needed.

I have been a child care provider since high school and have taken numerous child development classes including Waldorf education classes. I co-founded Crosstown Coffeehouse and Community Center and developed the early literacy and kids craft programs and hosted the Cowboy Jared sing-alongs. I have lead sing-alongs and dance-alongs at the Alameda Multicultural Center. I serve on the board at Alameda Head Start and Alameda Family Services. I teach Sunday school at Alameda Christian Reformed Church and I am also the nursery coordinator there.
