From August 2011-January 2012, I was employed at xx. My main duty was a receptionist/light child care. We worked with children ages 2-14 with anxiety disorders as well as ADHD. They offered treatment programs for the children as well as their parents/siblings. I worked with children and their families on a daily basis. Occasionally I would be assigned to supervise the children, and although being responsible for 3-7 rambunctious children was a challenge, I always managed to keep the situations under control. Also, my mother ran an in-home daycare for 15 years during, so I have grown up helping her feed, bathe, clothe,and play with the children from a very young age. Also, I was employed at a local summer camp for 3 years as a counselor taking care of kids between ages 5-10. I have done a few tutoring jobs for second graders as well as Freshmen in high school. Although my experience is not very current, I do love children very much and I have carried those experiences with me.

I started my nanny career watching a 5-month-old boy, had the opportunity to work in the infant/toddler room, and recently worked for a family, watching their now 3.5-year-old daughter and 1.5-year-old son, for over a year. I was fortunate enough to care for a loving 2-month-old boy for this past year. I love working with children of all ages, but have more experience in infancy/toddler-hood. I am extremely passionate about aiding in the overall unique developmental growth of every child I work with! I enjoy reading, along with arts and crafts, and believe in creative imagination! I am currently getting my BA in Elementary Education via an online school, which allows my schedule to be very flexible. I am CPR and First Aid certified. I would love the opportunity to work with your family!
