Lisa’s Bio

Teaching children about the world around them is my main goal in life!  I believe that a child learns the most about his/her world at a very early age and I try to immerse children in all sorts of activities and experiences so they can lead a fuller life.  I have a child of my own and from day one I have tried to show her new things every day. I have been around children since I was very young.  I am one of 6 children and my daughter is one of 10 cousins.  Family is the most important thing in the world to me and I truly respect parents who invite me to be part of their family and help raise their children.  I have a bachelor's degree in Social Work, current First Aid/CPR certification, and have taken several child-related college classes.  Because family is so important to me, I have chosen to leave my career and focus all of my energy on raising my daughter.  For this reason, I prefer to provide care from my own home during the day.  However, if I find a family who is willing to welcome my daughter as well I may consider providing care in your home.  I am also available evenings and weekends for date-night sitting, and would be able to leave her at home during those times with advance notice. My philosophy when it comes to child care is to give the children many opportunities to see and do new things and to treat them the same way I treat my own daughter: with patience, love, and dignity.  Children are our future and should be given every possible opportunity to shine!  I often go out when the weather is nice.  When the weather isn't so nice, I like to do crafts, educational (but fun) activities, and baking - one of my hobbies.
