Full-time hours

Hi Parents! I am a stay at home mom of an adorable 6 month old little girl, and looking for the right family to help with their childcare needs.I began babysitting when I was in high school and cared for a few different families on a regular basis. Plus I have a younger brother so I was more or less a built in babysitter at home for my mother. I have experience with children from infancy to school and love working with kids. Keeping the kids as active and engaged as possible is my main goal. Going for walks, parks, and museums are some of the regular activities as well as crafts, games, and lots of reading. I keep a positive outlook and have a care free attitude, but know when it's time to be serious. I take my job very seriously, because I understand the importance of caring for other people's children as I would want my own to be cared for. I look forward to the opportunity to make your life easier. I can watch out of my townhome or your house.

I have had a lot of child care experience. I try to be around kids as much as I can. I have been a volunteer at my Church's youth ministry for 4 years and counting. I was asked to become the head teacher for the Toddler Program at my church. I was a lacrosse coach for 4th and 5th grade girls for a year. I worked for xx Preschool which gave me the ability to spend most of the day with toddlers through school aged children for one summer. I have been a babysitter for a very long time and have never had someone only have me care for their kids just once. I was also in a Child Development class through my High School which allowed me to hang around 3 and 4 year olds and even teach them.
