Hello, I am a mother of 6 grown daughters and now, 3 granddaughters. Had licensed daycare in my Geneva home when they were young. Understand the challenges of working and finding the RIGHT provider. ( which is why I started my own) . I have assisted a friend with her state listened daycare in Dekalb, between working in nursing homes.
I am certified in recreational therapy, love incorporating learning with fun.
My youngest is on the spectrum, so Iam familiar with the challenges and versed in alternative approaches in raising these brilliant sensitive beings.
Because of this experience, I found working with seniors was just rewarding and gave that a go for quite a few years.
