Claire Thoele


I love doing all kinds of art and crafts, including painting, drawing, screen printing, friendship bracelets and pretty much everything else. I also love playing music and working on learning new songs and new instruments. I've played the sax and piano for many years now, and I just started learning the bass guitar last year and I'm really excited to play more. I never played a lot of sports growing up, but I love running around and playing any game or sport that the kids want to play. Tag, dodgeball and kickball are my favorites.

Courses Taken That Relate Childcare

While I haven't taken any university level classes related to childcare, I spent a lot of time when I was growing up volunteering at the preschool that my mom directed.


At this time I have too much on my plate to babysit.

Childcare Experience

I've been with the Shimek BASP for about 3 years, and I've enjoyed it immensely. I spent two semesters as a freshman in college working with America Reads, and I worked with my mom's preschool when I was in high school.
