I have lots of experience with kids of all different ages. I have taken care of twin newborns-4 years old and had a lot of hands on time with them. I am very patient and have been able to take care of a few kids and teens who have special needs such as epilepsy, tourette syndrome, and Autism. I have been a leader in a couple of after school clubs as well as being a part of a residential program for high school aged students. I have also done traditional babysitting gigs for families and have had a lot of families say that I am a very trustworthy candidate.
When the weather permits I love encouraging outdoor exploration so whether that means we go outside to play, going on a scavenger hunt, or just going for a walk its all encouraging healthy habits.
