Hi families! My name is Jackie. I have been in the child care setting for over 7 years. I am infant and toddler certified along with that I've taken other courses for Early Childhood Development. I also am CPR/First Aid certified. I started working with children specifically infants when I was 18 years old. I have cared for children between the ages of two months to 10 years old. I have worked in a daycare setting, a school, nanny, and babysitting. I've always felt very connected to children, I love being able to see them grow! I love nature and being outside, that's something I like to do with the kids too! Whether it is sitting outside, going for a nature walk, or going to the beach!

Jackie watched our son for us from December when he was 3 months to July 2020 when he was 11 months old and we enjoyed working with her. Her strengths are communication and dependability while also demonstrating lots of flexibility and openness to feedback. She is very diligent about documenting all the infant schedule stuff - diapers, bottles, etc. When we took some time off due to the pandemic she kept in touch and genuinely cares for our little guy. She was good with our two dogs as well. She has been flexible when it came to switching up the schedule from time to time and is consistently willing to change her approach or follow instructions. She always leaves the house cleaner and more organized than she found it which I greatly appreciate. Finally, she was game to clean our cloth diapers!
