As a mom, nanny, home provider, step- and foster mother, I have participated in raising 37 children and have cared for 23 babies in their homes, day care and my home. I am educated in and have worked in early childhood development for 15 years, am a certified Newborn Specialist and certified in CPR and Infant First Aid. I have a reliable car and am a safe driver, a non-smoker, and am comfortable with light housekeeping. I can say confidently that I know the ages of children I most enjoy because I have worked with infants and children all my life. My 60+ early-childhood workshops and college courses have given me the background to track children’s milestones and create activities which engage them to their next levels of development by enriching and stimulating them to learn, sing, think, and love books. What fun!

I have recently finished my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education at Hobe Sound Bible College, and I absolutely love kids. Most of my experience has been with children ages Birth-6 years old. I have worked in a daycare setting for several months, and have been responsible for up to 4 infants by myself, and up to 11 2-year-olds by myself. I have also taught in the first grade. Needless to say, I have lots of experience with kids! Also, I am quite proficient with house cleaning type work, as that was my way to support myself throughout college. I love cats and dogs, as well being in the kitchen and cooking. I hope that you find my qualifications attractive and are willing to speak with me more about working with your family.

I was a babysitter (of a 6-year-old girl) for one of our neighbors when I was in high school. I was also a youth counselor at a summer camp and was responsible for the care of 8 & 9 year-olds for 8 hours of the day. I have facilitated after school groups with children ranging from ages 5-16 for 2-4 hours. My background also includes scouting which required me to not only tutor but care for several children for 3 or more hours at a time, 1 or more times per week. At church, I am responsible for the Kindergarten and Cradle Roll class, a group that ranges in age from 2-5. I am also a homeschool mother of two beautiful children - a 4-year old girl and a 12-year old boy who has had many medical challenges early in life due to severe prematurity, therefore newborn care is something that I have first-hand experience with.
