About the Provider


I love taking care of children, especially babies! My children have all grown up and I miss teaching and learning with little ones. My first language is Spanish and I speak it everyday to the children. Being Bilingual is a great skill to have when the children become older. It’s is much easier for a child to learn both English and Spanish then it is for a teenager. That is why I focus on teaching the children to think and speak in both.
