Tara’s Bio

I am in my Jr year at Salem State as a double major in Early Childhood Education and Sociology. I currently have my associates in ECE, have all state certifications through Director II in the daycare setting, have taught as a lead teacher in the daycare setting in Toddler (w/9 children), Preschool (w/15) and Pre-K (w/15) classrooms, worked as a nocturnal nanny specializing in the care of newborn multiples and also worked as a nanny staying with each family for a minimum of 3.5 years with each amazing family ranging from two children to six. I am a dedicated, loving wife, mother of three wonderful children and an aunt to many nieces and nephews who I adore. In my spare time I enjoy going for walks, visiting with friends, going to Celtics games and playing in a womans basketball league.  Being the eldest girl in a large family babysitting became a hobby for me at a young age and became second nature early on. I don't just enjoy caring for children, I truly love what I do... it is simply who I am! I bring an upbeat, fun, loving, diligent, sporty, educated background in the field of childcare to the table and know my dependable, trust worthy personality is sure to grab your attention.  Thank you for your time and consideration! I look forward to getting to know you and your family!
Kind Regards
