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 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.

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 as new parents. She helped us recognize when our daughter was developmentally ready for new things, including encouraging the transition to solids foods, advising us on when our daughter was ready to socialize in play group settings, and even went to the shoe store with us to get our little girl's first pair of shoes! She was walking at 9 months!! Cass is also very knowledgeable about child development, down to the minor details of what children need to master walking, talking and socializing. We are certainly lucky to have her to care for our daughter and she takes great pride in her work. We are in the process of moving to be closer to my work, and as a result, Cass is looking at other opportunities. Posted Aug 27, 2013
