I have been working with children since I was 9 years old. I began baby-sitting alone as a teenager and found that I adored children, and children and parents adored me. Three years ago graduated with a B.A. in Child Development. During my schooling, I worked as an infant teacher, toddler and preschool teacher. I have also been a nanny for several families, most of which had infants and/or had one parents working from home. I am skilled at Baby Signs, and can implement the usage of simple sign language, if you so choose. A typical day with me includes projects/activities that I create based on the children's developmental level, using materials found within the home. We might also go for a walk, or otherwise enjoy the outdoors playing with bubbles, sidewalk chalk, a kite, or our shadows on the ground. The TV is not used, rather I will engage the child in books, stories, songs, and other fun activities. Additionally, I am excellent in helping parents target and address challenging areas in the child's daily life and routine. This may be helping the child eat a more balanced diet, addressing tantrums, helping the child and parent sleep better and in more appropriate ways and times, or any other issue that has become a challenge in the home. Children learn, grow, and thrive in an environment that is predictable in nature. By helping, or continuing, the parents to maintain healthy eating, adequate sleep habits, and appropriate behavioral boundaries, the children feel secure and happy, and therefore so do the parents and the family as a whole. I have great references and countless years of experience. I have been fingerprinted, I am TRUSTLINE registered, and have a clean driving record and fully insured safe vehicle. One thing I can promise: Your children and I will have great fun together, and they will forever remain in my heart. I have never forgotten a child I cared for; I still love them all! Thank you for your time, and I hope to hear from you soon!

I began four years ago caring for three children when the youngest was 3 months old. She is now 4 years old. I trained with their mother the first day on the job. When I first started their father did work from home. Slowly I began to work sometimes when he ran errands during my weekly visit. After awhile I began to stay with them alone. I've watched their cousins before. Up to five children. Though this was usually when there was a family gathering at their home. I feel comfortable though to watch up to five alone.

I started babysitting when I was in the 5th grade and immediately loved it. At my local hospital, I took CPR, First Aid, and Babysitting Prep Classes. I have babysat for friends and family members for several years on/off and have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of care giving. I am fascinated by the idiosyncrasies of children and value effective, respectful, and communicative care giving strategies . I attended the Napa Valley College for a few years and did receive an Associate's Degree. I am now enrolled in online classes toward a B. A. in English, but my ultimate goal is a PhD in English with an emphasis in Russian literature. Ideally, I would like to have a full-time and live-in position. To ensure the best care, I think it is essential to work with one family at a time, not only to build a rapport with the children, but also a collaborative relationship with the parent(s).

I took care of two children, ages 3 and 6 for about a years time before I had to relocate to my current location. I would come about three days a week while both parents went to work, for a few hours at a time. We would play outside, go on walks, I'd take them to the park in the family vehicle, play imaginary games around the home, watch tv on down days, and some homework for the oldest child, and arts and crafts.
