My past childcare experience was delightful. I was the nanny of a three year old girl. She had a few behavioral issues but we worked together and soon she had none. I take incredible pride in being a nanny for children. Children are sponges. Children are constantly observing their surroundings and interactions with people. The child I was resposible for became my best friend. She and I came up with educational but fun activities to do together. I took her on trips to the Science museums, art, music, etc. I was also her traveling companion. We went to Alaska, the Hamptons and Cyprus together. I would have never left my job, except unfortunately the family split and created a difficult situation for the little girl I was caring for. Overall, she was a bright and fun little girl to watch grow in all aspects of her life.

Having my son on my 20's was agreat experience, I got to enjoy being active with him, playing around and guiding him thru life. As I got older I descovered my passion to work with special needs population. I worked as a Teacher's assistant for two and a half years in chicago on a special needs classroom with children ages 5 to 7. Last year in West Palm Beach I baby sat with two families and It was great. One of the babies I took care of learn to use de potty with me. I believe you have to be very stimulating with children since is the phase of the life where they are opne to learn anything, taking advantage of this is important to introduce them to reading, singing and hands on activitites. I am not a big fan of TV, so outdoors and crafts are my signature.
