Avg response < 6 hrs
I have worked with children for over 20 years. I enjoy working with children Ages 2 months-14 years with more experience with birth to 3 years of age. I have worked in the professional business arena but come back to childcare by choice. I'm energetic, considerate to the parents request and know the value I bring to the table. I am looking to help the right family be able to walk out the door (or to their home office) and not have to think twice how their child is doing. I have the most experience in newborns to 3 years but having said that, for the right family and the right kids, age of the children isn't my focus in my employment search. Ideally I am looking for 1-2 days a week, which can be long days, but open to more days based on the situation and drive time. I have a BA in English. I am CPR and First Aid certified. I am looking for the right family to partner with.

Margaret began caring for my son when he was just 4 months old. Margaret made it easier for me to go back to work because I knew my son was safe, healthy, and happy in her care. She has years of experience caring for small children and immediately calmed my anxieties about leaving my child. Margaret is organized, thorough, and always on top of things. She helped us establish and maintain feeding and sleeping routines, despite my varied schedule. She was supportive of our family and respected our needs and desires for our child. On top of all that, my son had a great time with her. We were very blessed and so pleased to have Margaret care for our child.
