Ilana joined us in April as a childcare provider working with 15+ of our different families, YOU may be one of them. She looks forward to meeting many more of you throughout her work with us!
Ilana received her Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology this past December from West Chester University of Pennsylvania. She has worked at summer camps on the ropes course for the past 5 summers helping children to build resiliency and to overcome their fear of heights. During her time with Team ELM she has been helping with our blog, website, newsletters, staff hiring, company advertising, social media, events, family management, and more! She loves working with Team ELM families because they all bring so much joy to her day when she is with them! She says she loves getting to know each child's interests, strengths, and what makes them happy.
Three fun facts about Ilana:
1) Spent 3 months traveling to 7 different countries and 3 different states (across the USA) after graduation
2) Enjoys photography and has had her own photography business for the past 8 years
3) Went skydiving for her 22nd birthday

Cooking with children can have many benefits, and there are so many different ways to do it. You can start cooking with your kids at different ages and as they get older you can add in varying degrees of responsibility. Read on to learn about the different possible benefits and the ages in which different roles may fit. Then give it a try with your kids this week (we have provided two options for you!).
