We have a 12 year old, 1 year old, and a 2 year old of our own. I worked outside the home, in the medical field for almost 10 years, prior to becoming a childcare provider. I chose to become a childcare provider because I love interacting with my children as they learn and grow. It is just as rewarding to see other children do the same. We play in the back yard, walk to the nearby park, or do art projects. I have lots of toys and books, as well as games and activities that are always new to the children. (I am a Baby Crazy sales rep, so my inventory is always open for exploring!)
I require a 2 week trial period. We need to make sure that we, being you, your child(ren), my children and myself, all mesh. If I feel that anyones well being will be impacted by your child being in my care, I will not care for your child after the two weeks. I would hate to have a child sitting quietly in the corner, while the others run and play. I don't want anyone to feel left out, and sometimes that means finding a place that they are better suited.
