Experienced and Skilled Nurturer. Oodles of Care :D
I am 39, I have three children (8, 6 and 2 years old). I am a nurturer by nature. I have attended an Incredible Years Course after noticing that my favourites of my children's teachers all had this training in common.
I am a mixture of creativity and homely values, food is essential, fun and cooked from scratch, we muck about in the garden, look after our various animals, water play, make things, have lots of physical play, read, sing, and enjoy music. I have found that regular rhythms and routines provides security for babies and toddlers. I believe that a child's early childhood experiences and education have an everlasting impact on the rest of their lives.
As life gets more expensive, I'm faced with either returning to work and putting my daughter in care or hopefully being able to stay at home with her and contribute to our household income by also offering our home and my care to two other littlies.
My home is smoke-free, drug-free and alcohol-free.
