Hi! I am a stay at home mom who offers care to a couple of children in addition to my own 3 year old daughter. I believe whole heartedly in the individual attention and comfort that being in a home environment provides. Our days are spent learning through play, reading, pretend, creating and exploring our world outdoors. This is not a pulsating day care center that is constantly loud and going, going 24/7. This is a home. We also enjoy some down time to snack, relax and nap.

I have been babysitting since I was 12 years old. I have always had a natural rapport with children. I have never met a child that doesn't respond to me. I really understand kids and make it my business to make sure they know they are loved, understood and appreciated for being uniquely, wonderful Them! I have been a mother for 19 years. I am also a former teacher at a Mommy & Me program where you learn through play and music. I was a very popular teacher there whose classes filled up immediately. I believe that young children learn through having fun and enjoying their environment. I am always signing, reading, and just plain fun. I give all children in my care plenty of eye contact, one on one attention, hugs and love.

I serve lots of fresh fruit and healthy, kid friendly meals. My home is very safe and chock full of games, dolls, trucks, make believe dress up, books, and fun! We love to be outdoors. I have a swing set, sandbox, water table, chalk, bubbles, sprinklers, ride on toys and a park around the corner. My backyard is totally fenced as well.
I am a very warm, loving, patient woman who will be a friend not just an employee. I like for families to feel a part of our family and home. If I am caring for your heart and soul all day, you should absolutely feel welcomed and able to come on in, anytime you please. If you would like to talk further with me or have some questions, please don't hesitate to ask! I am always hopeful to build relationships that are mutually beneficial. Thanks for learning about me.
