Rebecca P. - Seeking Work in Sylmar

I have worked for a Child Development Center, primarily with infants, but helped with all ages ranging from 3 months to 6 years old. I loved that job and being with the children all day! I assisted with all duties including diaper changes, feeding, bottles, napping, play, playground safety, etc. I would love to have the opportunity to care for young children like this again. I also have worked for a daycare at 24 hour fitness and loved taking care of the children there, from ages 6 months to 12 years old. I helped them with homework, played with them, ensured safety, etc. Most recently, for the past 3 years, I have been doing in-home care for children and adults with autism, special-needs, handicaps, mental retardations, etc. Every single client has been different, and I have learned so much from that job. I do not have enough hours to work there, and the pay is not great, which is why I am looking for a new opportunity to work.
