Emily’s Bio

I welcome the joy, challenge & privilege that come with entering a child's life & world. I hold a tremendous respect for their developing personalities as well as, an extraordinary sense of responsibility for their well being, entrusted to me.I have worked with multiple families & know the value of discretion & creating a supportive home environment..
I grew up with a father who was a child/adolescent psychologist & learned a lot about cognitive development, sensory play, the use of manipulative's for engaging, purposeful, self-directed work for children and teens.
I often understand the challenges of growing up feeling misunderstood or different & have had great success with children with learning differences.
I am a trained, educated & practicing artist. I was educated in painting, drawing, sculpture, design, printmaking, enameling & glass. I also was trained in art theory. My greatest passion when caring for kids is to develop a sense of play, wonder & discovery in them. This could be through art, science, math, ect. I also feel these genres overlap. I have developed playful ways to infuse & sneak in lessons that make learning fun! And it should be. I have some background in Montessori & Waldorf sensory learning & feel it is an excellent way to introduce learning to little minds that soak up everything. I furiously read & write & like to pass on these gifts to the kids.
I also am an avid proponent of health; both in how we nourish our bodies & how we exercise them. I love sports. I love to run, play, tickle, make up games. I think sports teach important lessons that are analogous to how we interact & handle social situations in our greater lives.
I study about clean, whole foods & how it helps fuel our bodies. I am sensitive & aware of food allergies.
I love to have quiet time as much as play time. Doing chores & homework are a priority for me. I am an excellent cook who enjoys preparing meals. I don't own a tv nor believe it should be used as a babysitter. I am mindful to not use a phone around the kids I care for and am always open to helping clean and order the house.
