Hello! My name is Allie and I am looking forward to getting to know you and your family. My first childcare experience began at 16 when I babysat for a family of four. I quickly discovered an enjoyment in caring for and interacting with kids. Babysitting throughout high school to the present, serving in my church�s nursery, teaching Sunday school, and participating in camp counseling have all brought experience and depth to my caring for youth. While my more recent experience in teaching English to junior highers, tutoring K-6th graders, and watching them on the playground have all had their challenges, I have grown more passionate about understanding young people. I have a heart for fostering in youth a love for learning, and providing a positive, safe environment for young minds to develop and mature. Kids occupy a great deal of my life and I look forward to providing fun, adaptive, and compassionate care for kids.
