Full-time hours

I began working with children at 13 teaching Irish dance classes of 10-25 students per class ranging from 3. 5 -12 years old. I taught for 12 years loving every minuet. From teaching, I was offered various babysitting jobs 1-4 children at a time. I have a hands on approach with children meaning I believe it's crucial to 'unplug' their fascinating imaginations and explore the world, even if it's only in the backyard! I nannied 3 yr old triplets recently and love multiples! I'm a creative person and absolutely love to do crafts and activities. I don't believe in the word 'bored'. I am a world traveler and have been to 9 different countries as well as over 30 states. This has really given me knowledge way beyond anything you can read in a book because I have that experience. I am originally from Chicago and have relocated to Encinitas with my boyfriend. I have taken courses in child development and have the life experience as well.

During my undergraduate career, I was balancing a full school load and caring for a one year old girl from 7am to 5pm 3 days a week. I prepared her breakfast, lunch, and small snacks. I took her on walks (I also walked the dog just because I wanted to) and to the park to play. We played with puzzles, drew lots of pictures, listened to songs and danced, and I put together creative projects for her to do (this happened more after she turned 2 years old), such as painting a flower pot for Mother's Day and planting a lavender plant in it. It was so exciting to see her grow and mature every single day, and it was a pleasure to be a part of it!

I am a mature lady living in Encinitas .I am a retired preschool teacher with over twenty years in the classroom. I hold an AA Degree in ECE and a certificate in infant/toddler development and care. I have been a nanny for 3 year old triplets and for a family with a 3 and 5 year old. Both were wonderful experiences.
I miss teaching and the children very much, I'm hoping part-time sitting will make up for an early retirement. I welcome any further inquiries and hope to meet you and your child/children soon. I have a full resume thar I will bring when we meet. Thanks for considering me as a care giver choice for your precious little gift.

Hi, my name is Rachel. I’m a struggling artist trying to pay for rent. I love kids and animals. I love kids because I love to play and go on adventures and help expand their minds. I don’t like to let kids play a lot on technology, I believe they should be more interactive with the world around them. I love how kids are always so curious about everything. I usually spend time doing arts and crafts with the kids or doing outdoor activities. I’m very creative, patient, and outgoing.
