Happy Mother's Day

This Mother’s Day TLC For Kids would like to take a minute and thank two members of our temporary babysitting staff. 

It’s a special feeling when mother and daughter share the same interests.  It’s even more special when you can take that interest and develop it into a shared work place opportunity.

Marty Hall and her daughter Katie both have a love of kids.  Marty has been working in childcare for over 20 years.  In fact she was the one who introduced childcare to Katie.  In middle school Katie started volunteering in her mom’s classroom!  Now they both work with TLC For Kids, St. Louis’s premiere babysitting agency.

Marty earned her Associates Degree in early childhood education in 1988 and has been a childcare professional every since.  For the last seventeen years she has worked in a daycare/preschool setting where she specializes in working with three year olds.  For the last nine years she has been on the temporary babysitting staff at TLC For Kids.

After spending time in her moms preschool classroom, Katie Hall went on to earn her Bachelor’s Degree in Education.  Currently Katie is working at a St. Louis City head start program.   Starting in 2005 Katie also began working at TLC For Kids.  Like her mom Katie works on the temporary babysitting staff. 

Both mother and daughter enjoy the opportunity to work one-on-one with kids in a home environment.  They enjoy meeting new families but also love getting requested back to their regular families.

Happy Mother’s Day to moms everywhere!
