About Clara

I recently graduated with my Masters Degree in Human Service Profession. I also hold an undergraduate degree in Kinesiology and a minor degree in Human Development & Families Studies. My work experience has been working with young children for the past 18 years in various roles. I began my career as a gymnastics instructor of preschool children. Later on I owned and operated a mobile fun & fitness company called Gym on Wheels that went to daycare centers and taught children ages 1 to 5 gross motor development. In Gym on Wheels, we incorporated music & movement, gross motor and fine motor skill development, spatial concepts, and above all fun in our lessons. After Gym on Wheels, I returned to college to earn my credentials as a play interventionist through the various degrees that I acquired. Currently, I renewed my parent educator certification to complete my education and training in holistic play intervention. Holistic, because I work with children that are developmentally delayed, showing behavior issues, or are struggling in kindergarten to keep up with the class by using structured play sessions that teach a child critical thinking, cause and effect, exploration, how to sit still during a lesson, improve their listening skills, and above all learning while having fun! I use classical music, gross motor activities, and educational toys. I will provide the appropriate equipment and toys once I assess the child's ability during our first session. Our sessions are goal oriented once I interview the parent at our fist session to determine age appropriate goals for the child. I am bilingual and therefore I can serve families that speak either English or Spanish in the home. I recently graduated with my Masters Degree in Human Service Profession.
