I was raised in a family with eight children, so I grew up around children and developed an understanding and appreciation for consistency in attention, compassion and discipline with children. I babysat as with three younger siblings, you kind of absorb a parenting role by default.  During my teenage years, I began my “official” nanny- career during the summer months in high school, also working in a day care until I graduated and moved to Portland, Oregon and became a live-in nanny for a foster family. I stayed with them for a year while they had two girls the same age, one was biologically theirs, the other granted to them by privilege of the state. We went on frequent walks, I prepared all nutritionally-conscious meals and made all bottles. I had the privilege of playing on the floor with them, working on eye-hand coordination and other developmental exercised to strengthen their attention spans. It wasn’t a great challenge most days. They are still exceptional little girls! They ended up adopting the one who came to them later, and I still keep in contact with them as very close friends. I also watched groups of up to 10 children while the group of parents went on dates once a month. I left Portland to nanny for a family in San Diego, California for four years. He was the VP of a very reputable company while she was quite an entrepreneur. I successfully worked with their three-year-old, teaching her the alphabet that she had never been taught, advanced shapes and was able to make a fun game out of addition equations as arithmetic was not her favorite topic of the day! I took her and their 10-year-old son on frequent trips to the Children’s Museum, the beach, Science Museum, Sea World, San Diego Zoo, the dog beach for the two gorgeous golden retrievers on days that I didn’t have the children, along with other exciting adventures we were able to go on! I also took them hiking a few times, which was really special and formed great, hilarious memories! When I moved back to Houston, I worked in the two year old class. It was always a blast, and I learned a ton of cool songs with exciting hand motions! I am good at what I do, because I genuinely love it. I left the industry for two years, only to find myself studying to go right back into the child care arena. I am now a registered home child care facility, weeks away from being a home child care. I am great at reeling in different age groups into one activity, keeping the environment safe and organized while everyone is having fun and learning. Understanding the lack of individual attention these children get in more commercialized day cares really has put a passion in my heart to see that there is at least one place in my area where children can go while their parents must work and really feel like they are at home, where the can still be kids without it feeling like a jungle. (If you’ve ever been into a day care center room with toddlers or three-year-olds or an infant room at feeding time, you know what I mean!) My main mission is to treat you child as I do my own, providing educational curriculum, nutritionally focused daily menu, an educational, loving, encouraging environment at an affordable cost for your family.

My professional childcare experience has been long and richly rewarding. Starting in 1986 in Willis,TX I became a live/in Group Home/Emergency Shelter Relief House Parent. That meant, when the main parent was off-duty I took charge and ran whatever building I was over-seeing at the moment. Under me, were two other staff members and twelve children, ages ranging from six-weeks to sixteen years old (male and female). In the Shelter, we did not have infants. They had to be at least ten years of age because we housed juvenile offenders. In the Emergency Shelter, my eyes were never shut!!!!! I had many opportunities to act as a "parental role model," cooked,cleaned, transported, tutored when I understood their work, shopped for the household, did laundry, kept their schedules in tact, made their school counseling meetings and also made it to our staff meetings on time. It was a must. It was hectic at times doing for twelve children constantly and making sure that all the "i's" were dotted and "t's" were crossed but on school graduation night, YOU BET!!!, it was all worth it. I loved watching them grow for 25 years. Two Children's Homes and I retired, happy, healthy and satisfied.

I babysat children when I was in high school. I usually watched four to seven year olds. I taught on a bus program with our church from the time I was 11 years old until I graduated high school at 17 years of age. I was in charge of about 20 children, ages two to 12. I sang songs with actions, and told bible stories with picture flip charts. I loved that, and still remember to this day. I felt as if they were my children, and it was a joy to watch them grow up throughout the years I worked on the church bus ministry. I raised two children who are now 25 and 27, and have four grandsons: ages 1 year to 5 years old. I held an in-home registered daycare for two years. I took care of an infant, seven year old, 10 year old and 12 year old. I interact with all ages with songs, games and naps, and meals. I always had a rule that they had to eat something solid before something sweet. For example, "Eat a hot dog, then you can have that brownie." That's how I raised my children and how I took care of children in my daycare. We would go to the park on sunny days or have board games and flash cards on cold days. We would watch educational programs on t.v. and I would explain and ask questions, as we all watched together. I lived overseas in Kenya, East Africa, as a missionary, for six years, and developed a children's program for an orphanage and a church. I taught young people how to teach the little ones, age 2 years old to 12 years old, by using flip chart stories and songs with actions; the same principle I used on the church bus ministry. The children participated well, and today, the church and orphanages are ran by the young people I taught. I home-schooled my children and one national boy while we lived in Kenya. He became fourth in his class, and to this day, his parents are so very thankful for me teaching their son with my two children. My two children have become successful adults and very good parents to their children.

I have been watching kids since I was about 12 old. I have two sisters. The youngest being 10 years apart so I have grown up with kids of all ages. I am one of the most patient people you'll ever meet. To me, it just takes understanding a child to give him or her the best care possible. As of right now, I babysit a 2-year-old and his brother who's 10. I also just recently left a school for gifted and talented children. I was a shadow to a 10 year old with Asperger syndrome and teachers assistant as well. I've been cooking since I was 10 so if that's needed, I can. I can clean and do anything around the house if needed. I can help kids with homework. I've also been acting and singing since I was 9, so I can show your child a diverse culture if desired. I absolutely love kids and can't have wait to have them with my fiancé. I also work full time at Olive Garden as an assistant manager. But I will be quitting as soon as I find a child care position,. As of right now I am taking a break this semester from school. I'm going for a bachelors in hospitality management, but I've recently come to the decision that I really want to do something with early childhood development or child psychology. But I just dont know exactly what. Just email me or call/text and I will answer any questions or fears you may have. I can give references if needed.

Hello, my name is Ericca, I am originally from Austin, TX but moved to the Houston area after attending Howard University majoring in Spanish Language and Early Childhood Education. I have cared for children all my life beginning with my younger sister and then receiving my first paid position as a babysitter when I was 13. I have learned many personalities and learning styles from the many experiences I have had as a sitter/nanny. I have a natural ability to care for and build a relationship with children. I have always had a love for children watching them grow and learn, which gave me the passion to become a school teacher. Besides being a babysitter and nanny, I have worked as a tutor inside and outside the classroom with school-aged children who suffered from not having the resources necessary to thrive in an educational setting, such as low income, behavioral issues, etc. I get the greatest joy in meeting new children teaching them and building a relationship with their family as a trustworthy, respectable individual who they can trust to nurture, care, and love for their child. I have had experience with all age groups and multiples. Recently I have worked with a military family whom I will be with until they move out of the country in August. My job duties entailed spending time with the children and finding creative and interesting alternatives to watching television. I also take and drop one of the children off at school as well as making sure both children complete school assignments and attend all lessons and extracurricular activities; including piano, ballet, French, swimming, etc. I also help with the family pets and light housekeeping on occasion including meal preparation. I am also very organized and a planner which allows me to assist with more than just childcare, for example helping the family and children with packing and organizing for their international move. Most recently I began working with a family with a 2 month old son. I started as a live in nanny with the family and now serve as a live out nanny for the same family. I have worked with this family since September 2012 and am looking for a new position as they no longer need me.
