I have a very important role in children's lives. I am committed to providing a warm, nurturing environment to facilitate fun learning experiences and encourage creativity and imagination.
My approach to child care honors the value of creative self expression in the process of growth and development of each individual child. I design activities and projects based on the unique interests of the children, age, skill level.
I'm renowned for always coming prepared with books, games, & special materials. These enrichment activities are meant to bring everyone together, while at the same time allow an outlet for unique aspects of each individual to shine. This is a wonderful way to develop a spirit of team work and cooperation.
Animals, nature, being outdoors, environmental conservation, & wildlife rehabilitation are very dear to me. I have found that this is something that children really appreciate. All through life, this passion has brought me a multitude of experience- With this focus, continuous study & involvement, I have acquired plenty of knowledge to bestow. I'm knowledgeable about native plants, animals, habitats, environmental issues, as well as the proper care of a great many types of pets, nutrition & basics of veterinary medicine.
Besides this, I have some other notable interests: I like exploring outside, state parks or just parks, hiking, gardening, and yoga. I love books! I love to read! Also, I really enjoy cooking & would be more than happy if you would like that I learn my way around your kitchen! I am very interested in nutrition and put this to practice. I know how to prepare a number of meals from scratch. I also know how to make delicious foods, nutritious foods.
I'm rather artistic and very much encourage creativity through all kinds of mediums.
Suppose that about sums it up...yep, that's me: Valerie ... I have also been called, "The Greatest-Most Awesome-Wonderful-Baby Sitter-In The Whole World" by my younger fans, and "The Super Sitter" by parents alike...!
