My name is Valerie and I am a small State Licensed, First Aid, CPR certified, in home day care provider for infants to toddlers up to 3.5 years of age. I have a nice and safe backyard full of equipment and toys that the children just love to play in, learn to develop social skills and burn off some of that energy. When we are not playing outside we are doing all of the fun and developmental things they so enjoy like reading, exercises, arts and crafts, dancing and singing along to their favorite songs, etc. Lunch that I provide is always a good time to settle down for a much needed wind down period before nap time. After nap its snack time then back to being kids again with various activities indoor or outdoor weather permitting.
Being in business for over 18 wonderful years I have had the pleasure and honor of supporting many families in raising their children in a safe, caring, nurturing environment. Some families have become my own extended families as I have had two or more of their children in my care from infants to preschool ages. Watching them grow, thrive and develop is a great passion of mine.
A bit more about me, I have lived in the same house for 27 years and along with my amazing husband of 24 years raised 3 wonderful and successful boys, now men, there. One is a high school teacher and football coach, one currently is in Los Angeles going to sound engineering college and one is currently finishing is AA degree then on to nursing school. Previous to my child care provider life I was an executive assistant at Hewlett-Packard where I supported large teams and senior vice presidents.
In 2014 I was asked to serve on the Tri Valley Family Child Care Board of Directors as Membership Director. The Tri Valley Child Care group is a non-profit organization that keeps its members informed of state policy changes, provides professional development opportunities and acts as an advocate for its members.
