I have cared for children of all ages privately and in a group setting for the last 12 years including involvement in teaching a Sunday School class of 2 - 6-year-old children and children ages 7 - 11. I have raised my own two children who are now 23 and 14. I love to teach and nurture children so I have home schooled my 14-year-old in the past and have taught multi age home school classes in various subjects so if you need tutoring for your child or kindergarten preparation I am able. I would love to provide your child with both fun and educational activities whenever possible! I love arts and crafts, reading, baking, nature, sports or out door activity and just about anything that engages our imaginations and want to share my love of theses things with a hard working family and their kiddos! Your Child would be nurtured and cared for in a loving, patient, kind and encouraging atmosphere. I am able to offer transportation to and participation in play groups and trips to parks upon request. I also have experience with special needs such as Autism, ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder and Asperger's. I am mature and reliable because I realize that you have a job to do and need someone who you can count on to be there for you and your children when you have to be away from home. I also know that you don't want to come home from a hard days work to a messy house so I will also provide light house keeping for you and meal preparation for the children in my care.
