Coloring, painting nails, tying shoes, pushing swings, giving hugs: these are the things that defined my experience working with children and also the things I looked forward to each day. I have spent the past four years being a nanny for a family with two young girls. I provided a safe, recreational, & creative environment for the girls. Each day I planned a schedule to foster the children’s developmental and educational growth in a loving, caring atmosphere. Furthermore, I compassionately utilized behavior management skills with the girls and effectively communicated with their parents about our day and any concerns that arose. In addition to being a nanny, I have extensive experience as a babysitter. I began babysitting at age 13 and fell in love with providing childcare. I have been babysitting for numerous families over the years and hope to be able to continue working with children on a day to day basis. I also taught Sunday school to toddlers and pre-school age children for six years throughout high school.
My experience in these roles has afforded me the opportunity to work with children at every developmental stage. I have experience crafting creative, fun daily schedules for children of all ages. I earnestly hope to be able to continue to invest in the lives of children and use the skills I have gained to foster in the development of those children.
