Meet Allison

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I am a mother to a seven year old boy, and a four year old girl, and I have watched several children in my home over the past few years. Most currently, the two year old girl I've watched since she was a newborn is starting a childcare program, and I will be available to watch another child. I am choosing a lifestyle and work schedule that allows me to maximize my time with my own children, and watching other children during the day, occasional eve or weekend has worked very well. I am comfortable with infants, food allergies, behavioral challenges, potty training, and tantrums of all kinds. I am a loving, easy going and respectful caregiver, with good boundaries and clear communication. I use positive discipline as emotional education, and always see the benefit of empathy and respect while working with children.
