Business description (provided by the business owner):

I offer a first play group experience for the young child. I run a small flexible day and time program from my home for at home or part time working parents who need a break. I am young and energetic and have been in the early childhood field for 15 years+. After owning my own popular childcare business in San Francisco for 5 years I am moving it to Marin. I have tons of stellar references from all over. If you are on long preschool waitlists call me- you wont be sorry!I am MUCH more affordable than a nanny, have better ratios than a daycare, and am a great resource for parents.

My child loves going to Cookies n Dirt playcare. There is no question that Christian understands child development. Her program is a combination of wonderful hands on activities mixed with lots of love and laughter. Christian is always full of energy and the kids adore her. Our three year old hopefully asks me every day if it is a "Christian day". I couldn't be happier sending our child to her!

Cookies N Dirt is amazing! I can't say enough about Christian and the wonderful environment she has created for children. My two daughters have been exposed to both traditional 'learning' but also to different cultures, holidays and traditions, foods...such a great experience for them. She is loving and fun, but also firm about the importance of being kind and respectful to their "friends". We are so lucky to have found her!

Christian and I have been life long friends and she is a wonderful wealth of information when it comes to raising children. I have called her hundreds of times in need of quick advice and her expertise have always seemed to help me cope and be a better parent. My three children have been lucky enough to spend time with Christian and absolutely love her to death. When your child lights up when they see her you will know what I mean. She truly enjoys working with children and her passion combined with her knowledge is priceless!!

My 3 yr old son goes to Cookies n Dirt Play Care 2 days a week. He bounds out the door on those mornings because he is so excited to go! Christian is highly skilled at integrating play and learning. The crafts, motor skill development, structured activities and free-flow play are all fun, safe and enriching. She was a lucky find for our family. She comes HIGHLY recommended. I am an educator myself, and I couldn't think of a better place for my son to go!

This woman is amazing. I worked with her in a children's center. She was inspirational to her students and the other teachers. Her curriculum allows kids to explore and involve themselves. She has planning activities mastered! Getting your hands dirty is encouraged. Kids are allowed to be kids in her care. They grow and develop a huge sense of self in the healthiest of ways. She has her EC education plus loads of experience, she is well balanced, and loves to laugh. Her program is the best you can find.

If you are looking for great, affordable and flexible care Cookies n Dirt is the place to be. Christian has been an amazing resource for me as a first time mom. Always willing to answer questions and concerns about child development and typical first worries without being judgemental. My almost two year old absolutely adores Christian and bursts through her doors without ever looking back to worry that Mommy is leaving.

It is hard not to sound like a blabbering fan when talking about our experiance with Christian. She was and is a deeply caring, insightful, creative, attentive, and fun loving person. Christian is a down-on-the-floor-with-the-kids not an-across-the-room-on-the-phone type of care giver.
We learned about our childen with her and our children flourished with her.
I wish Christian was our next door neighbor.

Christian is AMAZING.. She helped me raise my two daughters. I was a part time working mom who felt as comfortable as pie leaving my girls with Christian. Since my girls have Grown and we have moved across country I have continued a Friendship with Christian. She has a wonderful energy and kids have fun with her. Her Smile is Contagiouse and her attitude towards raising kids is inspirational and leaves you at peace when you drop them off. She is a wonderful person and should be considered when looking for child care. She Gets Top rating from me and my Husband.
