Hi, My name is Tamara.  I love children and have worked with them my entire life.  I am the second to the oldest in a family of 5 children.  I also am the mother of a 22 year old daughter.   We reclocated to St. Louis from Colorado so that my daughter could attend college at SLU.   I am currently working in a kids room at a a gym on monday/wed/friday/sunday mornings. On tuesday and thursday I care for a 3 1/2 year old sweet boy. I have been with his family for almost 3 years. I am available after 3;30 on Tuesday and Thursday. On Monday/wed/Friday I am available from 12;30/1 each day. I am also available on the weekends I love reading, games, crafts and baking with the children.   When the weather is nice I like to take the kids to the park, zoo or other outside activities.  I like Read more to keep active.  I have worked with children in Pre-Schools, Day-Cares and as a substitute elementary school teacher.  I may be older but I have experience and I keep active and am young at heart.   I neither drink nor smoke and I have reliable transportation.

Tamara is a great asset to any family. She is kind, patient, calm, and caring with our 2 young boys (3 and 1 1/2). She especially loves reading to them (as they love it too) and she always comes with a load of new books. Often, my kids can't wait for us to leave so they can spend time reading with her. She has a ton of experience and is very good at handling meals/and bed/naptime. She is also very reliable, trustworthy and respectful of our requests. We feel blessed to have found her as she is the best caregiver we have had.
