Claire Thoele


I love doing all kinds of art and crafts, including painting, drawing, friendship bracelets and pretty much everything else. I am enjoying bringing my limited Dungeons and Dragons experience to the program and running missions with the older kids. I also love playing music and working on learning new songs and new instruments. I've been playing bass for a number of years and took sax and piano lessons when I was a kid. I am also starting to learn how to play the drums. 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 have been working at the Shimek BASP for about 10 years now. I love working with the band and bringing as much arts and crafts to the program as I can!
