Danielle’s Bio

I would love to provide excellent, focused care for your child, in my home or yours!

I am a teacher, with a Master's Degree in Education, currently taking time off to be with my lovable and bright 11 month old baby girl. I live in a wonderful neighborhood in Colonie/Menands with a park and library within yards of my home!

Here is a little about my values and philosophy relating to children:
I believe in spending time with kids as much as possible, helping them learn and grow through interaction. I use simple, creativity-sparking toys like blocks, puzzles, music, figurines, books and whatever else my baby finds interesting and is in her environment! I try not to limit her curiosity and discovery.

We get outside most days and we keep our television off (usually adults only, after bedtime:) There are dogs in our home, who also provide entertainment, learning and love for my baby, but who could easily be kept separate if you were not comfortable with that.

In short, I believe that in this busy world, children should be given as calm and naturally-stimulating an environment as possible. I believe this fosters language, feelings of security, focus, persistence, self-esteem, and appreciation for the natural world and people. I also appreciate and enjoy some "higher tech" activities, and think they can be fun, it's just that I believe in curbing over-stimulation and reliance on "gadgets."

My experience as a teacher gives me extra patience, perspective, creativity, and the ability to help children through challenges.

I can provide a safe, loving and nurturing environment. If this speaks to you, please reach out!

Thank you for giving me your time!
