Hi, I am 62 years young, the mother of two grown children, and gma to 4 grandchildren.
I began professionally babysitting in my 20's, and for over 30 years have had opportunities to care for children of all ages and abilities. I strive to provide a safe, secure, happy and nurturing environment in which children can learn and thrive. As an optimist, I look for the good in any situation which have turned out to be great learning experiences. I'm not perfect but alll in all I find it easy to be kind, understanding and empathetic. I believe as adults we should take more time building confidence, offering encouragement, and respecting the individuality of children, while allowing for plenty of fun. I encourage creative play, learning games or activities, as well as crafts, story reading and baby sign. It is very important that I give you, the parent, peace of mind in knowing your child is being cared for in the manner which Is important to you. References & background check upon request.
