Jamie P. - Seeking Work in Bridgewater

11.42 / hour

As a Montessori trained teacher/nanny/babysitter, I have years of experience caring for children of all ages, from infants to preteens. I previously worked at a daycare in Bethel for 2 years in the infant toddler room, at a Montessori School as a teacher for three years, and a private traditional preschool with a class of 4-year-olds for 4 years. I started the Montessori training while working at the traditional private preschool because I wanted to learn how to teach children in other ways. After taking the Montessori Teacher training for 3-6-year-olds program at the xx School I learned how to care for each child individually, emphasizing independence, freedom within limits, and respecting a child's natural psychological, physical, and social development. I am committed to providing a safe, nurturing environment for the children in my care. I take safety extremely seriously, and I am trained and certified in childhood first-aid and CPR.My certifications are in need of renewal, and I am going to do that asap.
