Catherine’s Bio

I give special care of individual child s needs.
My important directions for the children are, structure, guidance, and consistency.
 I implement patience and listening, for I understand it is very important.
Creativity is also important. For it shows to each child their potential of who they are, and to help them mature.
Guidance will show them respect of self and others,
 Along with guidance, morals and values implemented to each child bring about good character. Patience is a must.
Structure would consist of responsibilities shown, age appropriate.
These are some of the tools that I use when I care for children.
I have been a caregiver for other families for over 4 years now. I enjoy children and working with them on a regular basis. I use my creative skills both in the arts and in a child individual growth.
                                   
I am an artist by trade. I have taught art to elementary school age children with one on one lesson. I have worked with my church youth group when my sons were young.  I have raised three sons. Their ages are 27, 28, and 30. They are all on their own and now contributing to the society. I am a grandmother of two wonderful granddaughters. Their ages are 2 years and 4 years.
With the much energy, passion and optimism I keep up with the 2 acres in Naperville. I love to garden, sew, paint, swim, hike, additional to watching my grand children, nephews and nieces on occasion.
