Meet Barbara

I have experience as a caregiver for infants and preschoolers with an in-home daycare for 17 years. I am from a large family, mother of 2 and have worked with kids from age 10 as sitter, nanny and caregiver. Kids and animals seem to be drawn to me, so I have always been there when I could. I wasn't happy with the child care facilities I knew of, so when I started my own family, I kept children so I could be home with my own and continued until mine were college bound.

I have experience as a caregiver for infants and preschoolers with an in-home daycare for 17 years. I am from a large family, mother of 2 and have worked with kids from age 10 as sitter, nanny and caregiver. Kids and animals seem to be drawn to me, so I have always been there when I could. I wasn't happy with the child care facilities I knew of, so when I started my own family, I kept children so I could be home with my own and continued until mine were college bound. I love kids and would be interested in just keeping a great little one in my home if possible but am willing to come to your home for special date nights and short term babysitting.

Erin M. says:
We have just started going to Barbara for daycare and we couldn't be happier. We are very impressed with the high quality of care she is providing for our daughter. Her home is clean, organized and set up nicely for daycare. She is very thorough and organized and gives us feedback at the end of the day on how things went. We finally found someone we fully trust and that has really put our minds at ease.

Heather R. says:

Katrina F. says:

This is not an institutional... More
