My name is Katie and I'm a 27-year-old resident of West Philly. I recently moved here from Portland, OR to expand my music career. I have spent my post-grad years working in organic food kitchens, running a small screen printing business, serving as a dedicated drummer in two bands, and working as healthcare biller/accountant, all the while finding a passion in childcare work. My approach in childcare is to be very engaged and attentive during care activities (eating, diapers, grooming, etc.) and to teach language and respectful communication through modeling, patience, delight, and play. I take care of your house by cleaning up after activities and helping with whatever household cleaning and cooking you may need. I have 10 years of paid childcare experience, and it's been an honor to work with the many families that I have in St. Louis, MO, and Portland, OR. I hope to hear from families in Philadelphia and to find the right fit! Pediatric CPR/First Aid Certified.
