I am a mother of four, two of whom are adults. I have a B.S. in Child Development and a MSW in Social Work. I choose to be a stay home mother with my 1 year old girl and am seeking a child care arrangement where she can be with me during this precious time. I have years of experience professionally and personally in caring for children, including special needs. I would provide loving and attentive care for your precious one/s, with a stimulating curriculum to meet their developmental needs and curiosity.
