Kayla’s Bio

Hi! My name is Kayla Messersmith, I am 22 years, married to my high school sweetheart, we just bought our first house in hopes of pursuing my dream to have my own in-home daycare! I graduated from Heartland Lutheran School in 2010 during which i was a date night babysitter for many families, I then graduated from Xenon International Academy in 2011 during that course was fortunate enough to continue to babysitting and even nanny for a couple more families. I worked in the salon for about a year until i realized my true passion was working with kids. Growing up with an elementary teacher for a mom and an in-home daycare provoder for a grandma I should have known, right? ;-) So i left the salon to nanny full-time and also to work at Trinity Lutheran School's after school daycare program, through which i was able to aquire many Early Childhood Education classes plus many other more. Between then and now I have also picked up working as the Assistant Cook at Bickford Assisted Living home. I am a strong believer in raising kids in an environment as close to home as possible, so I have been striving to get the experience I need to be able to provide that for them. I love working with children, they are a passion of mine, and I love having a hand in helping mold and form them into the person they will become. I love going on long walks to work some large motor skills, goin to the park, playing sports, doing all kinds of art projects and science projects, exploring, playing board games, working on homework with the kids is no problem for me, I am very flexible with time and availability, I am able to run kids to and from school, I am certified in CPR and First Aid, I still keep up on my Cosmetology license and love to cut kid's hair if you'd ever need that done :). I am a very reasonable and reliable person and i would love to meet and answer any other questions you may have! God's Blessings!
