I am the mother of three grown children and grandmother of four beautiful grandchildren who has over 40 years of childcare experience in a variety of contexts, as a teacher, coach, church leader, volunteer, and for the past 7 yrs, as a nanny/caregiver. For three and a half years, before I began working for others, I took full-time care of my two grandchildren, while my daughter who is an attorney, worked long hours. Recently, I worked in the programs of two churches, taking care of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. In previous years I held a position implementing the curriculum of the gifted program for an elementary school. As a volunteer, I coached a girls soccer team, coached several creative problem-solving competitive teams, who all advanced to the World Finals! I have taught Sunday School, VBS, and have been VBS director. I am a strong believer in the importance of positive early childhood experiences and a passionate advocate for young children. I understand the concerns and stresses parents face and love using my experiences, skills, and sense of humor to help them feel more confident and increase their parental enjoyment. Nothing feels better than knowing your children are being loved and well cared for in your absence. Currently, I am looking for 2-3 days a week to replace a childcare position that just ended. I also do on call, or "as needed" care. I do not have specific days checked on my availability chart because it is constantly changing as I put together a new schedule... just ask. I have excellent references available upon request.
