I have been told many times that I have a natural way with children.I enjoy thier company as much as they enjoy mine.I am a very dependable,trustworthy,patient, and caring person.I get great satisfaction out of helping others. Throughout my years of being a child care provider, I have worked with various age groups ranging from infancy to middle school. I have worked with children my whole life.  It is such a joy and privilege to be able to help a child discover his or her own individuality and to witness them reach their fullest potential. My goal as a child care provider is to ensure a safe and friendly environment and to encourage the children in exploring their unique abilities as they develop into independent individuals  I am CPR and First Aid certified.

I have been babysitting since I was a teenager with ages infant & older. In 2005-2009 I was a preschool teacher & have been a nanny since then. As a nanny, I worked with all age groups as an assistant teacher & lead teacher with various age groups with 2-year-olds to pre-k. The first family I worked for as a nanny, their daughter was about 18 months when I started taking care of her. I took care of her until she was four years old. My responsibilities varied from getting her up in the mornings, to taking her the park, any activities she was signed up for, play dates, etc. For one year I also took care of a 9-year-old in the afternoons when she got out of school. I picked her up from school, got her an afternoon snack, helped her with homework, took her on play dates & various activities like soccer. I currently take care of a little boy who's almost 2-years-old. I've been with him for one year & I'm responsible for getting him ready in the mornings, his meals, taking him to the park and story time.
