Reliable and affordable childcare in Pekin

Sitter in Pekin

I currently have Childcare openings for day shift (6am-6pm) monday - friday . A little bit about myself: I am a 41-year-old married mother of four boys (ages 10, 16, 20, and 22) and a girl (age 20). My home is an exciting, loving, safe, educational, and structured environment for children. We have an enclosed backyard with many ride-on toys and 2 jungle gyms. Inside we have a play room where we do lots of crafts and educational activities and 6 bedrooms (plenty of space to spread out). I have been providing child care full-time in my home for 17 years now and worked in a daycare center before that. I have also taught Sunday School (I currently teach 14 months-3 year olds), have worked in the mothers day out program at our church, and have taught children's church. I provide a nutritious breakfast, lunch, and morning, and afternoon snacks at set times everyday. I also have experience with ADD, ADHD, ODD, childhood depression, mood adjustment disorder, autism, Asperger's syndrome, breathing problems (asthma, RSV), seizures, multiples, Cerebral Palsy, and premature infants. I am also CPR and First Aid certified. I was fingerprinted and background checked in 2001 for my home daycare license another background check in 2014 to work with the children at church and again in February of this year to work with the children at the new church we moved to. I can offer an educational, structured, exciting, Christian environment for your children. There will be a lot of art and craft activities, swimming, and age appropriate educational time. . We also do a candy bar fundraiser each spring and collect box tops, soup labels, and diaper points from huggies and pampers to help keep the costs low. Due to this I have not had to raise my rates in 10 years! So if you are looking for a place where your kids will have a blast you can stop looking. My rates are: Full time: $100 a week Part time: $30 a day (never more than $100 a week per child) or $5 per hour The cost for child care covers food, art and educational supplies, prizes for good behavior, etc. I do have a legal contract for both of us to sign agreeing to the terms of care and I claim my income for taxes, so every January you will receive a receipt to use on your taxes. I also have a ton of references available on request. My home is in the CB Smith/Washington school boundaries with the Washington bus stopping 4 houses away. The care is provided in my north side home. Something to keep in mind....I do not accept child care connection and also we take a one week family vacation every year. For the year 2016 our vacation will be from July 25-28. Please email or call or text 267-7655... if interested.
