Description

My name is Bob Swadish I started watching Children when my now 25 year old daughter (Nancy) was 4 years old. At that time I owned and operated my tree trimming business, which allowed me to take my daughter to and from school. I started taking other neighborhood children to school too. Then found when I was picking her up after school, I would also pick up some of her friends too. We would do something everyday, the park then McDonald's and it all became a fun routine for all of us. This went on for quite some time.

When Nancy turned 12, my other daughter Stacey was born. While Nancy's interests changed and McDonald's was no long entertaining her anymore. Now I was going to be taking Stacey places.

When Stacey turned 3 years old we went to Disneyland almost every day. She just loved the characters. When school began, the drop off and pick up started all over again. I started to pick up other kids along with my daughter. I would have 6 kids some times helping them with homework.

As the kids got older I decided to do after school daycare as a paid profession. My tree trimming service was declining and this was much more satisfying as well as potentially lucrative. I told all the parents I was going to start a daycare service. I went to all the required classes and then some. I received my license after about 4 months. Some parents became paying customers and my business blossomed. My first daycare child was 14 months old and after a few months I had 6 of them. In the summer I had up to 8. I really enjoy the kids.

I learned of a program that offered respite to foster parents. I was very interested in helping the foster care system and realized that respite was one way. I needed to become a licensed foster parent in order to do this so I started the process. I took many classes and learned alot about the needs of foster children and children in general. All of these things were helpful in my daycare as well. It took about a year to complete the process and get licensed. Currently, I am licensed to care for 4 foster children. I do a lot of respite and have had children placed with me for long term care.

Some of children I care for call me Bob some call me dad and even a few have called me momma. No matter what they call me, they always seem happy to come to my home. Most of all my daycare children come from a one-parent home, in most cases it's the mother that has them. Having a positive male role model is important for children. The way the parents and the kids act when they are around me, lets me know that I am just that.
Thank you for the opportunity to tell you a bit about myself and my love of children.

Sincerely,
Bob Swadish License # 304206099
