Patricia’s Bio

As a working mother of two sons, now 17 and 20, I am finding myself
missing small children and I love babies, and toddlers. Fussiness does
not bother me and I can set gentle limits.
As a social worker, I have training and experience with all ages, and am
knowledgeable about child development. But it is not just about the
book learning, it is about being able to nurture, comfort and play. I
remember how difficult it was to leave the baby, but it made coming
home all the sweeter. All parents need breaks, it re-energizes them,
especially if it is date night.
Since my children are much older, with very different needs, I decided to
offer child care for parents who are looking for an experienced,
responsible and mature person to look after their children when they
could not be there.
I am planning to take CPR training, and have professional training in
special needs, attachment, sensory issues and learning differences.
