Laura’s Bio

Hello my name is Laura and I would like to tell you a little about myself and my love for children! I am 55 years old, happily married, have 2 beautiful grown children, 2 perfect little grand daughters, and twin grandsons due in November! I have worked with children almost my whole life. I started babysitting all through high school, I worked as a summer camp leader for 4 yrs., a nursery school teacher's asst. for 2 yrs. and for the past 26 fulfilling yrs. I have had my own well established home daycare, licensed thru D.C.F.S. I was licensed for 8 children ages 6 weeks through 12 yrs. I have also been a part-time nanny for 10yrs. I have excellent references, CPR & 1st Aid cert.,very dependable & reliable, non smoker, fun loving, energetic, have own reliable transportation, clean driving record, compassionate & nuturing, and most of all I LOVE children! do age appropriate learning & playtime activities, I love reading to and with the children, play games, I do alot of crafts & projects with the children, going on small field trips such as going to the park, taking long walks, taking the children to the library, to the gym & park district tiny tot activities, the zoo & museums and if there is an activity that the parents would like me to take the children to I would be happy to! My husband and I decided in 2011 that it was time for us to downsize to a smaller home since our children were on their own and our home was just too big for just the two of us! In Jan. 2012 I sadly closed my doors to my home daycare which really broke my heart! In April 2012 we moved into our new townhome and we love it! Except that it isn't set up to be a home daycare. I feel that my calling in life was to work with children and that's exactly what I wanted to continue doing. I hope you feel that I would be a good fit for your childcare needs. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you and have a great day!

Excellent!

Laura took excellent care of our two children. They warmed up to her from the start! She kept a written log of their daily schedule as well as what they ate and how long they napped. My children especially loved the different craft activities that Laura brought over to the house with her. We know Laura will make a great new addition to another family!
