Hi I'm Shirene (: My favorite combination in the world is Nature & curiosity and the wonder of kids! I enjoy hiking, practicing yoga and exploring, and sometimes that's in nature with kids -- I am a part-time nature mentor (: Having been the oldest of four, my child care experience started when I was young. Throughout my years of working with children I have been told that I cultivate a safe, nurturing, loving and fun environment. I have extensive experience in child care and teaching, from ages of infant to junior high -- at home, in the classroom and the outdoors!! I love caring for children, it has become second nature to me and I genuinely enjoy it... it's a day/afternoon/evening of fun, laughter and learning, which for me is time well spent (:
