2. How long have you been with ADPP?
I have been here for 4 ˝ years and counting!
3. What is your childcare background and experience?
In addition to helping with raising my godson and goddaughter from birth, I worked with the children at Alum Rock Little League for a few years. Then, I moved on to work with preschoolers at the James Lick Children’s Center for 2 years and have been working with infants and toddlers at Action Day ever since.
4. What do you like most about your job?
Children tend to have a naturally positive outlook on life in general, as do I. They are always full of fun and laughter and it is absolutely the happiest environment to work in on a daily basis. Watching them grow and develop is the most rewarding experience in the world.
5. What do you think is special about your ADPP location?
The staff cares so much about the safety and well being of all the children.
11. What is the single best piece of
advice you can give parents of toddlers?
Help them to develop their language skills by listening to them and allowing them to use their words to get what they want.
12. Do you have any healthy lunch ideas?
Toddlers love sweet tastes but that doesn’t mean junk food…fresh fruit, yogurt, gummies, etc are all healthy alternatives. Fresh food is always a hit and will help children to learn to eat healthy foods at an early age.
