Meet Tamara

  • Comfortable with pets

Hi! My name is Tammy. I have over 15 years experience working with children through babysitting, teaching performing arts and after school programs, and working in preschools. I completed the 12 core ECE units in 2011 and have experience working with infants-teenagers. From working in preschools and non-profit youth organizations, my CPR, TB test, and background checks are all in good standing. I'm currently doing ABA therapy with children on the autism spectrum. I'm very active and look for hands on, age appropriate activities to do with children, so they won't be parked in front of the TV on my watch! I have always connected well with children and love seeing them learn and grow. I look forward to meeting families looking for some extra help or a night out here and there!
