I have raised two wonderful, intelligent daughters in a home where education was very important! I ran a daycare center for 15 years and decided to close it last year. We cared for ages 2-5, but I have experience with all ages. I am CPR and First Aid trained and took additional childcare-related courses throughout the 15 years. I am trained in several things required by the state for daycare teachers and directors, such as Playground Safety and Child Abuse and Neglect. I love crafts and art and keeping a child involved, rather than watching TV all the time. There are so many learning opportunities throughout a child's day!
