I do not have much expeirence as a paid child care provider, but I have help my eldest sister raise all three of her children since they were born, two girls and one boy ranging from age 1 year to age 11. My sister worked long hours and double shifts at work so it was my job to get the kids up in the morning bath and get them ready and make them breakfast drop the two oldest off at school and watch the youngest until they were out of school after school we would have snack time then homework time then nap time. After their naps we would have arts and crafts inside or outside park time to play depending on the weather then dinner time and depending on their behavior they would have an hour of t.v time then bath before bed.

For 3 1/2 years I have been an Infant Master Lead teacher in an Outdoor preschool in Santa Barbara. The youngest I've had in my classroom is 2 months old! I have an Early Childhood Education degree and am CPR/first aid certified. Babies are one of my passions and I love to nurture the children I care for. I have been a nanny on 3 different occasions. The first job was with a 10-year-old autistic boy and his younger sister. I did light housekeeping, made meals, drove them to appointments, did recreational activities with them and helped them with homework. The second job was with a 10-year-old autistic boy. I also did light housekeeping, made meals, provided transportation to his appointments and helped him with his homework. The third nanny job was with a 3-month-old baby girl. I traveled in the USA with the mom when she had to attend meetings. When home we would go on many walks. I also have 11 years of experience working with special needs children at a public elementary school. I love animals, I have 2 dogs, going on walks, hiking in the hills, birding, gardening, reading and baking! I have a vast array of life experience that I feel enriches my ability to share the world with the children I care for. I am very adaptable to the learning needs of children, my son started reading before he was three years old! I feel that stability is so important in a child's life, so if a long term commitment is needed, I am willing to make one. In June of 2016 moved to Ventura and would love to work locally. I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about this position. Thank you. Pat
