I’m Daisia and I’m a fun, energetic, passionate, caring & loving individual from North Carolina . Like seriously, to know me is to love me. I recently obtained my degree in Child Development and Family Studies. I’m a runner. I’ve competed in the sport of track and field & cross country since middle school. I’ve also competed on a collegiate level while obtaining my degree. My freshman year, I made cuts as the number four runner of seven girls on the team. So with this being said, running after your little ones should be no problem at all. I have a variety of experience when we are speaking on children. I’ve been engaged in private day cares, five star development centers, community events & child care events for parenting programs & so much more. I truly enjoy being with children. Discovering their unique personalities, offering my talents and desire for fun & wonderful memories...always mindful, with respect, that I take my responsibility to you and yours very seriously. I always look forward to meeting each new family. Working with kids for so many years, I have come to understand that children come into the world with a blank slate. The experiences, environment, adults, as well as surroundings are what shape them into who they become. I feel our responsibility as a nanny, child care provider and educator is to provide children with the best possible education, knowledge, and choices so they are able to grow to their maximum potential. I believe that children should be given the ability to become independent individuals by setting limits with positive discipline, praise, and encouragement. I enjoy being surrounded by children because of their imagination, innocence, and creativity. I look forward to being the positive role model your children can reliably depend on.
