I have always been working in childcare, first as a babysitter all through high school and college, then as a nanny for 9 years before having my children, and finally as a childcare provider. I have also been a mom for 8 years. I have an early childhood education certification and an elementary education degree. I have been First Aid and CPR certified twice and would gladly renew it, if a parent asked. I am also a home school mom.
I strive to keep kids busy, active, and focus on rich play and a diverse array of experiences to keep them stimulated, happy, and learning! I don't take more kids than can fit into the van. We go to parks and playgroups, museums, and field trips. I believe in peaceful parenting practices.
