Hello! I'm Kate, and it's nice to "meet" you. I'm available evenings, weekends, and for special events such as slumber parties and extended vacations. Experienced caring for children while parents on Int'l travel. I lead a team at an academic tutoring company. I have been working with children since I was a teenager, and I'm an awesome Aunt. :) I graduated from the University of Iowa with a BA in English and the University of Colorado with an MA in Early Childhood Education. I have experience teaching preschool and working in a group childcare settingvin addition to family homes. My passion is the care and development of children of all ages. I work with infants-teenagers. I have such an amazing time interacting with children; it's truly a pleasure to spend time with them. I'm kind, smart, responsible, fun, flexible and accommodating. You can be assured that your child is with Read more an experienced professional able to provide the gold standard in care. I can provide academic assistance, active play and creative activities, both indoors and outdoors. I love arts and crafts, as well as music and dramatic play. One of my favorite things to do is read, and I love reading to and with children. I'm also good to "hang out" with older kids keeping them away from screens as much as possible with games and activities. S'mores pancakes, anyone? I'm also more than happy to tidy up/organize, take care of laundry, and generally be helpful. I have a flexible schedule, and I look forward to the opportunity to work with your family. Thanks! Kate
