Hi, my name is Kristen. I am a certified teacher, with a bachelor's degree in Cross-Categorical Special Education, K-12. I have been taking care of and teaching children since I was 12 years old. In high school, I volunteered 480 hours at a local daycare. In college, I volunteered more than 200 hours at The Arc of the Ozarks and the Boys and Girls Town. I have completed over 400 hours of early childhood and elementary school teaching practicums. Professionally, I worked in an elementary school for just under 2 years, teaching 48 children with special and exceptional needs from the ages of 5 (transitional kindergarten)-10 (5th grade). As a teacher, I realized I had a passion for more personal early child education and left the school to become a nanny. I have been working as a nanny for the past three years, taking care of and teaching a child from the ages of 2-6. My years of experience have strengthened my calling to continue to work with young children and I hope you will consider me

As first time apprehensive parents, we had our doubts about daycare and nannies, BUT we absolutely ADORE Kristen! Her in-home daycare is top-notch and perfect for our 3-year old's active mind and big energy. She not only is helping educate our son, but also helping us as parents find better solutions for handling those "terrific" threes tantrums. Our son looks forward to "school" every day. We can't say enough amazing things about Kristen. Go check out what she is doing. You won't regret taking your kids to her!

My name is Savannah, and I own and operate an in-home care program unlike any other program out there. My program was born out of sheer frustration. I spent many, many months searching for a program that fit the needs of not only my son, but those of my husband as well. We were both working adults and found the structure of most programs to be difficult to follow, given our schedules. So, after desperately searching for a program that didn't exist, I made the decision to quit my job. I spent the next 18 months designing and developing my very own curriculum. I am currently a licensed Social Worker and have 10+ years of experience with children.

First and foremost is size. I intentionally and strictly maintain a very small group. I have implemented a maximum of 10 children with another worker. I absolutely refuse to have children lost in the shuffle which so often happens in big groups of children. I want it to feel like your kids are going to a friends to play for the day, not like they're going to daycare.

The next major difference is flexibility. I allow you to take your children out of care for vacation, and highly encourage, if not insist on keeping them home when they're sick, and I do NOT charge you for those days (Up to 10 days)!

I'm open Monday-Friday. I do not offer weekend care at this time. My rate for full time care starts at $130 per week. I accept cash and checks. I do not accept credit or debit. I provide receipts for tax purposes. Please note, I do not accept government payments for care.

I require a meeting with you and your child prior to enrollment. During that meeting, you'll be given a tour of my home, and we'll go over the enrollment packet which goes into specifics regarding the perks and expectations of my program. Should you chose to enroll, you'll pay a deposit of $50 to secure your child s spot and payments will be due on Monday s. I accept children on a two week trial bases to make sure not only am I a good fit for your child but your child is a good fit with the other children.

At this time, I have full time openings for children 18 months and older. If you have any questions, or would like to schedule an interview, please contact me! Thank you!
