Diane, Licensed Childcare Provider, Special Educator and Mother
My name is Diane C. I live in the North Edmonds/Mukilteo/West Lynnwood/South Everett area of unincorporated Snohomish Cty. on the border of the Mukilteo and Edmonds School Districts.
I am a WA state licensed home child care provider with a B. Ed/Special Education plus a M. Ed in Curriculum and Instruction. I taught for nearly 20 years in Seattle and have cared for children in my home for the past 13 years. I have taught Sunday school to preschoolers for 13 as well. I provide babysitting services on an 'as-needed' basis weeknights and weekends. I provide parenting consultations as well.
I receive continuing education hours annually to keep up on the latest studies, research, and theories of parenting, learning and language development. I offer annual First Aid, Infant/Child/Adult
CPR and AED training in my home with a highly qualified Medical M.E.R.T. instructor. My entire family receives this training each year, as well.
I have three older children; a 21-year-old U.S. Marine, an independent and creative 16-year-old 'teen', and a witty and wise 14-year-old! I have enjoyed the opportunity to stay home to care for my children, providing me the ability to be actively involved in their day-to-day lives revolving around friends, sports, school and extra curricular activities. My husband of 25 plus years is also a special educator in Seattle. We round out our family with two large, lovable dogs.
My goal is to have you and your child become an extension of our family. With my special education background, I am very comfortable caring for children who have special needs, health/medical issues, learning issues. I will love, nurture and educate your child while in our care. As you will soon learn, My husband and I love children and have made the teaching and caring for children an integral part of our lives, both personally and professionally.
