893 Breeze Dr, Lake Villa, IL

Starting at $160/wk

Qualifications:
I am a professional early childhood educator with 3 years of experience working with children from ages 0-6 years of age in a center-based setting. I am an approved family care provider and licensed from the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) with a capacity of 8 children. I am also pursuing an Early Childhood Education degree from College of Lake County. To date, I have completed 38 credit hours of Early Childhood Education.

Philosophy:
My name is Anna and I am a proud Champions teacher! I believe that children are precious and a blessing and that makes me feel that my work is meaningful. To me, great teaching looks like creating a sense of community, and so I'm doing my best when children are enthusiastic about learning and socializing with their peers and their teacher. I know that providing children with lots of love and care is the best way to help them learn, prosper, and respect each other and so every day I work very hard to instill wholesome values and positive experiences in children's lives. My approach to teaching is respecting children because experience has taught me that respect is important when working with children. I understand that children will make mistakes, so I always make to encourage them to keep trying. In my classroom, I create an environment that is entrusting and respectful, because I want children to succeed. I take pride in being warm, loving, and having a nurturing personality to make it easier for children to approach me with any curiosities they may have. I believe that relationships are paramount, and I work hard to establish long-lasting relationships. When it comes to curriculum, I think that it should be engaging and fun, and so I make sure that kids in my program are excited about learning. I love teaching because I find it personally fulfilling. Some days are harder than others, and when things get challenging, and in those moments, I am motivated by the smiles of the children. When all is said and done, to me, teaching is everything, and that leaves me feeling accomplished and joyous.

My Name is Kate Simone and I have been working with children since the age of 16. I was born and raised in Lake Villa, Illinois and that is where I have chosen to raise my children and open my home day care. I have 2 sons Cole who is 17 and Lee who is 8. I started baby sitting when I was 16 as well as helping my older sister with her twin girls. I then got a job working at a daycare down the street and loved working with the younger children. When I became a junior in high school I began taking classes for the development and education of young child classes. This was even better as now I was involved in the school districts with the older children. I knew from then on that I would only be happy working with children. After I graduated high school in 2002 I got married and raised my children. Now that they are older I went back to school at the College of Lake County. At first I started with a certificate program until I realized I was learning so much about children and kept going. I have many certificates now including Early Childhood Education, Infant Toddler Specialist and Home Day Care certification. In the Fall of 2012 I will graduate with my Associates degree in Early Childhood Education. Throughout attending school I was working at a local public school as an aid in the Cafeteria for 2 years. I also am a Nanny and have been for over a year for some of the best kids you could ever meet.

In January of 2012 while finishing up observation hours for one of my college classes I realized that children deserve better. Children deserve time and attention. These are things that I personally feel major centers lack as there are so many children in one space. Children are always rushed and told to do things and they never get time to just play and interact with other children. This is why in March 2012 I realized I could offer these things to children and their families right here out of my home. Group sizes are small, children have a routine but they get to play and interact on a daily basis and the care is affordable. I am flexible with families as much as possible and just have the best interest of the children and families in mind when planning activities, outings and food menus.
