Meet Castalia

Hi, I have an Associate Degree in General Education-Early Childhood Development, 14 ECE units, (Early Child Education), from City College of SF, and I am CPR Certified. I drive my own car, and have a clean DMV record. I have spent most of my life caring for children. Children mean the world to me. I feel responsible as a caregiver to provide the best care with love so I can help them become healthy young adults. I work with them step by step as they grow and feel it is important to create an environment of security and respect.

It is with my head and my heart that...

Hi, I have an Associate Degree in General Education-Early Childhood Development, 14 ECE units, (Early Child Education), from City College of SF, and I am CPR Certified. I drive my own car, and have a clean DMV record. I have spent most of my life caring for children. Children mean the world to me. I feel responsible as a caregiver to provide the best care with love so I can help them become healthy young adults. I work with them step by step as they grow and feel it is important to create an environment of security and respect.

It is with my head and my heart that I approach my work as a caregiver. The most important developmental years are the first three. Infants and toddlers have the same mental and emotional needs as adults do: to be heard and seen, which leads to building self confidence and high self esteem. It is up to each child's parents, with the support of involved caregivers, to help meet these needs. I love children deeply, as pure, innocent young people who are very special in our world. This is why I have dedicated my life to this career.

Erin F. says:
Cass has lived up to her promises as a care giver. She lovingly connected with our daughter (now 11 mo.) and took the time to first understand our daughter's needs and then provider her with the love, support, encouragement, and active life that she needs to thrive. Our daughter smiles every time Cass enters the room, and Cass seems to generally enjoy her time with our daughter.

Cass also greatly helped us...

Gypsy A. says:
Cass has cared for our daughter full time from 3.5 months old to the present (18 months old). Cass is leaving us because our daughter starts day care in September.

I hired Cass because I wanted someone who would love my daughter, and Cass has not failed me! I place my complete trust in Cass with our daughter, and our daughter adores Cass. When she hears Cass opening the door, she runs to the door shouting...

Andrew S. says:
Cass took care of our newborn starting as a night nurse through to age 2 and continues with us today. She is a warm, loving, spiritual, compassionate caregiver who really loves children and more importantly, knows what she is doing.

She understood our daughter's developmental stages, recognized illness and how to treat them, taught me about rashes and how to prevent them, took her to the doctor when needed...

Castalia C. responds:
Dear Andrew,

I still remember like it was yesterday when I first had your daughter in my arms. She was so little, it seems like I didn't see how fast time does passes us by. Here we are today, She became this beautiful blond little girl, talking, laughing, telling me what She wants and She is speaking a few words in Portuguese as well. I am honer for having the opportunity and thanks to God for being a part...

Kristin H. says:
Cass came into our family when my twin girls were 6 weeks old. She stayed with us until they were 8 months old. She would have stayed with us, but we decided to move from San Francisco back to Salt Lake City. Cass was wonderful with the girls. As a first time mother of twins, it was very overwhelming, and Cass helped me through a lot of the first time parenting issues. She has a lot of experience, and is very... More

Castalia C. responds:
Kristin, I have no words to express my feelings. I do miss all of you very much and I wish you didn't have to move so far. I had a wonderful time working for your family. Thank you so much for the last pictures you send from the girls.
