When I started, the youngest was 6 months old and the oldest was 3. I was with them for over 3 years and still keep in contact.

I have a degree in Pyschology with a concentration on child pyschology. I taught preschool- first grade for a few years before we started our family. Now I am an assistant ballet teacher 2 days a week for children ages 3-6 but could be Flexible with hours. My ideal hours would be during the day but I can be flexible.

I have to admit that I miss being around children who are 5 and under, especially babies. I’ve always had a special bond with babies and a great deal of experience mostly from raising my own children. I love watching each stage as a baby grows and seeing their reactions to this new world.
I hope to meet you and your little one. Please call if you have any questions. My phone number is

Kristen M. - Seeking Work in West Hartford

3 yrs of experience

Hi families, my name is Kristen and I have over 10 years of professional child care experience. I am also a parent myself but my boys are in their teens now.

I have two passions in my life, working with children and medical research. I have been fortunate to have had the chance to engage in both! I have worked in centers, but prefer private nanny care and working as part of a familys' child care team. Having a medical background helps as well, in the case of an emergency.

I have been fortunate to have worked with many wonderful children and their parents over the years. I have experience caring for multiples, children on the autism spectrum, and more than three children at a time. I have a lot of patience and energy!

I would love to share my love of arts and crafts projects, music, reading, and outdoor fun with your little ones. If I sound like a good fit for your family, please contact me.

Thank you,

Kristen

I love working with children! I have extensive experience in a variety of settings: I babysat for a family of 3 on a weekly basis for 8 years, in addition to babysitting for other families on a less frequent basis; I worked as a camp counselor for children ages 7-12; I worked as a teacher's aid on a weekly basis for pre-school aged children for over a year.

I have taken child development classes and understand developmental differences in age and in regards to special needs. I also grew up with a brother with special needs.

I am honest, responsible, reliable, patient, compassionate, fair, and believe whole-heartedly that children should be treated with kindness and respect, just as adults should.

I recently quit my full-time, professional job in order to pursue grad school full-time for my dream job. I'm looking for full-time, short term work through July. I am available Monday - Friday, and Saturdays 9am-3pm.
