Barbara P. - Seeking Work in Citrus Springs

17.14 / hour

I started caring for children when my own children were young so that I could stay at home with them. The other children became part of our family. I am still in contact with some of the families I have worked for over the past 30 years. I evolved into having a Montessori preschool in my home as my children got older and the grandchildren came along. That's when I became 'Nana' to everyone. The children, the parents and even my son-in-laws call me Nana. I closed my preschool in June, 2007 and did one year as a private nanny for an attorney in Chicago.

I began babysitting when I was 10 years old and directed a preschool summer camp at age 17. I attended the University of Vermont where I received my BA in Early Childhood Development and Education. I have been actively teaching and/or directing infant/toddler programs since 1995. My educational philosophy aligns with the Reggio Emilia approach and I believe in attachment based caregiving as an essential foundation to all learning. My passion is particularly for those sensitive infant/toddler years.
