Hello! My name is Kelsey and I am 20 and a junior in college. I am majoring in psychology and minoring in early childhood development- hoping to become a child's psychologist :) I am almost done with my undergrad so I do have a lot of knowledge about all different types of children and how they work- Including things like what types of activities are best for learning at their age as well as what types of language/emotions they use and what it means. I just recently moved to the area and am going to school online right now. I have been a nanny for about 5 years now and have a good amount of experience with children of all ages. My most recent position was for a newborn and 4 year old twins. I was a peer mentor in high school so I have quite a bit of experience with elementary aged children and children who need extra help with homework or everyday tasks. I love your style of parenting as well! It sounds like something that I would definitely agree with. I love to be outside and doing fun activities that encourage learning first and foremost! I do have my own transportation and a clean driving record :) I also have references and up to date vaccinations if needed. I am very flexible with my schedule! I hope to hear from you soon! Thank you :)
