Hello, let me introduce myself. My name is Patty Halbert. I was born and raised in Southern California but beautifully transplanted here in Washington in 1992. I recently married a truly wonderful man named Rich. I have seven wonderful children of my own; Daniel, Theresa, Alyssia, Michael, Johnathan, Kyleigh and Austin. Ranging in ages from 33 years old to 14 years old. I also have three beautiful granddaughters, Alannah, Meiyah and Aryah and one handsome grandson, Jesse.
I enjoy spending quality time with my family doing things like camping, hiking, trips to the ocean and traveling. I also enjoy crafts, scrapbooking, photography, reading, event planning, dancing, barbecuing and entertaining.
I became a child care provider because I thoroughly enjoy children, their imagination and spontaneity. My childcare philosophy is to provide a safe, comfortable, stable, positive and nurturing environment for children where they learn and grow physically, emotionally, intellectually and socially at their own pace. I believe children learn through play and benefit from a structure yet flexible schedule.
