Meet Carla

I am a mature, "seasoned", responsible, and highly reliable child-care professional. I am also highly articulate and well-educated. I have over 10 years of experience not the least of which includes raising my very successful daughter, who now attends graduate school. I believe that nobody understands the "ins and outs" of parenting, quite like those of us who have been in the "trenches". Aside from having my B.S. in Early Childhood Education, I have been hired by many trusting families for over 10 years. Several of them still call upon me when in a pinch. Raising a child can be complicated and complex, and it is something I take quite seriously. Every family has their own set of beliefs, dynamics, and preferences in how they choose to rear their children. I do my utmost to incorporate my experience with the preferences each family has in how they choose to devote Read more themselves to their family. I love most children's theater and reading stories to little ones. Having a childhood that involved extensive theater, both as an actress and director in school and community theater, I incorporate that with my relationships with young children. I look to develop trust and warmth with each child with whom I am responsible. I have experience with children from infancy to teenagers. I look forward to speaking with you about your child/children. My schedule is flexible and open. Thank you for this opportunity to get to know you. I look forward to establishing new relationships with a family looking for someone as highly qualified, personable and passionate about children. Carla
