Hi, my name is Kris Bineau and I would like to take this time to tell you a little bit
about myself. I am a Certified Advanced Newborn Care Specialist & Infant Sleep
Consultant and I live in Parker, Colorado, which is just south of Denver. I am
originally from Southern California and my husband and I have 3 awesome adult
kids. We live on a little ranch with our horse, dog & 3 cats. In my spare time, I
love to ride horses & motorcycles, ski/snowboard with my kids, garden… and of
course, go shopping!
All my life I have loved children, especially the newborns. From age 12, I was
always the neighborhood babysitter, helped out in all the church nurseries and
would dote upon every baby that came to visit. Even at an early age, my family
and friends would notice and express to me that special “gift” I had with babies, I
just clicked with them very well.
My childhood dream profession was, of course, to work in the nursery or in the
NICU at the hospital as a nurse or even a doctor, but as it turns out, God had
other plans for me.
As I got older and started having kids of my own, I knew whatever I did as a
career, it had to involve kids, mainly babies. So, I worked in daycare centers in
Southern California. I also went to school to get my Early Childhood Education
certificate and became a preschool teacher.
After working in and observing the world of big daycare centers, preschools, etc.,
I was saddened to discover that they were all the same…. just businesses! They
couldn’t possibly love, care for and give individual attention to the children like
they truly deserved! These centers were only in to the quantity of kids and the
profits they made off of these kids and I questioned myself if I really wanted to
be a part of that system. The answer was no, I didn’t.
All my friends, family and neighbors were encouraging me to start my own
daycare here in California, and so I did in 1997. I wanted to give kids the best
first few years of their childcare experience that they deserved! Also during that
time, as my kids were young, I became the nursery director at our church, taught
Sunday school, became a MOPS leader, and helped out with vacation bible school
After moving to beautiful Colorado in Spring of 2006, I continued my daycare
business, mainly to get my “baby fix”, as my kids were getting older.
Unfortunately in 2011, I had a sudden halt in my daycare, as parents were losing
their jobs, moving etc.., so I starting looking into other careers that I can do to
continue working with babies. I was thrilled to find out that there was a huge
demand for Newborn Care Specialists! So, I went through 9 extremely thorough
classes on Infant Care and took an extra 9 classes on Sleep Training and have
proudly received my certificates. With more than 30 years of hands-on experience
and all the education I have received, I can honestly say I have finally found my
