Full-time hours

I worked for a family with 2 toddlers for 3 years, and had to leave because they both started attending school. I worked for another family with 2 toddlers as well for 2 years l, and the reason of leaving was also due to them starting school. I worked for another family after that with an infant and an 8year old for a few months. I started working as a Wondersitter since early 2012 and currently still with them, so this means I worked with various families of all sizes and ages. I am Trustline certified as well as CPR and first aid. I completed my early childhood education units (ECE), and my goal was to become an elementary school teacher.

I have been watching kids for six years now and absolutely love it. I have no siblings and this is the best way that I have made up for that. I take great care of the kids I watch and am very responsible. I can cook, drive, help with homework, play sports; as well as many other things. I have taught kids to swim, as well as helped them learn how to ride bikes. I am extremely patient and don't only teach the kids I watch, but learn from them.
