I am the youngest of seven kids with a mother who also took foster children and ran a home daycare.  I love children and have been around them for my pretty much my entire life.  I began when I was 15 assisting my mother with her home daycare and then went on to become lead teacher at a friend's home daycare.  I left working there only to care for my two sister's children when they decided not to put them into daycare.  I became their stay at home Auntie and took them to the zoo and library play groups and out for lots of other outdoor activities.  I love being an Aunt and arranging many activities for 8 nephews and 2 nieces from Easter Egg Hunts to camping trips.  I have also worked at the St Mary's after school program as an assistant coordinator for two years. I have worked with Read more my afternoon family going on 6 years and was an overnight newborn care expert until May of this year when my 7 year old adoptive daughter moved in. She will be doing distance learning in the Fall for 2nd grade but she would have to come with me to my work. Overall, I just love being with children and have found it very rewarding to be able to watch and help them to grow into the amazing individuals they each are.

I can't even begin to describe how happy we have been with Christine who has been taking care of our now 2 1/2 year old son for the past year. She has a natural and intuitive sense of how to communicate with very young children and is a pro at helping them develop their own ability to speak. Christine has really put her heart into every day that she has spent with our son and she truly cares and wants the best for all children she takes care of. Her style is gentle, yet firm when needed, and she has unending patience. We will be sad to see Christine go. We wanted to have our son enroll in daycare to have more regular exposure to children but we look forward to getting in touch with her for the next child, should she be available!

Christine has watched our children ( boy 5 and girl 2) for two years. She has been wonderful with them. She is patient, caring and reliable. We have enjoyed having her as an extended part of the family. She is a great sitter and any family would be lucky to have her on their team.

Christine has been involved with our family for about 7 months. We could not be more impressed with her capabilities as a child care provider. She has played an instrumental part in helping my 3 year old with his speech delay, often teaching him new words, proper pronunciation and word combinations. I have 2 sons, 3 years old and 2 years old. Both of them battle for her lap for stories and games. She diffuses fights and tears with confidence and ease, and her creativity with games and songs is fantastic! She is dependable, punctual and flexible, and would be an asset to any home or institution that she chooses to work for. WE LOVE HER!
