MY NAME IS ANNA and I will be moving to Crawford Bay in July. I will be offering childcare at my home starting September. Children under the age of 5 years old only. Full-time, part-time and drop-in care available. I will provide snacks, parents are to bring breakfast/lunch for their child. I am childcare professional not a babysitter. I ran a very reputable and successful daycare in my home in Calgary for eleven years and I am currently working as a Montessori teacher at a campus in Calgary for one year now. I will provide a safe, comfortable, fun and loving environment for your child. I have my police clearance. If you have any questions please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks Anna.
$1185+ IS ALREADY IN THE CFNKLS' TREASURE FUND: 95% of it is destined for a local charity, to be selected by the Finder of the CFNKLS' Treasure Box. The Finder gets the beautiful box, and the $100 inside it, and 5% of this Treasure Fund. Our goal this year is to exceed $1750 in the Treasure Fund before the box is found.
