Hi, my name is Elaine and I am 26 years old. I started child care at the age of 13. I love kids; each one is special and amazing in their own way. I've cared for children of all ages, from newborns until 12 years of age. I help with homework, cleaning and cooking related to the children, and of course, always make time to have fun. I love to engage children in reading, arts and crafts, games, and outdoor activities as much as possible. I love teaching children as well as having fun. Currently, I am attending Oakland University, enrolled in the Elementary Education program, majoring in science and minoring in language arts. For a while, I worked as an assistant teacher at a Montessori school and absolutely loved it! Also, I completed a Nursing Assistant course with American Red Cross.
