  About Me
 
Hi my name is Mishanda,
I have 2 children ages 19 and 10. I enjoy reading and exploring the city in my spare time. I am very family oriented. My major is early childhood education. I currently attend Kendall College to receive my BA in Early Childhood Education. I have over 18 years of experience caring for newborns-5 years old in licensed child care facilities. I have also held the position as a Program Specialist for Kindercare Learning Corporation in South Loop. I believe that children learn best in an environment that is safe, predictable and stimulating. I introduce morning learning time activities such as circle time, story time, music in motion, art and more. I also focus on each child's developmental domains. Your child's daily curriculum is designed using developmentally appropriate practices and is individualized. I set up a photo stream with pictures and videos so that you can view your child’s interactions throughout the day. I do understand that you are looking for quality care for your little one. Someone who will nurture and care for him/her as though he/she were their own. I can assure you that I would be a great choice. Trust me I understand how scary it can be to trust your little one in the hands of someone else. I am very trust worthy, responsible and honest.
