I am a formerly licensed child care provider from Minnesota. I have worked in the childcare industry for the last nine years and considered myself to be a professional, experienced, self-motivated, organized, patient, calm and dependable with high energy and an adventurous individual. I have found taking care of children to be a worthwhile experience. I love children of all ages, and I have the expertise to provide them with the loving and nurturing attention they deserve. I have experience planning and implementing activities that are both fun and educational. I do believe in a structured environment with scheduled activities including arts and crafts, pretend play and outdoor time based on the child's age. Some of my hobbies include hiking, fishing, canoeing, camping, biking, gardening, playing board games, arts, and crafts, cooking, organizing and cleaning. I have references available and would love to talk more to see if we could be a great fit.
