My childcare experience began when I was 13 years old. My mom enrolled me in a Babysitting class, certifying you to be able to handle any situation while babysitting. I learned to perform CPR on children and infants, and how to properly help a choking child or infant. I began babysitting at 13 for families at my family church. At 14, I started being a nanny for my aunt Renee. I watched my two cousins, ages 3 and 5 at the time. I would cook, clean, and keep them entertained from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. I also babysat quite often for my aunt, Jill, when I was 14. Her two being 3 and 5 at the time. She now has 5 children, from the ages 4 up to 13. I occasionally watched them throughout the years. I now help my best friend, Jessica, with her 2 being 5 and 7, and is currently pregnant.

My name is Ashley Rivera. I have loved children my whole life and I’ve been fortunate enough to get to spend lots of time working with them. For starters, I’ve been babysitting my three younger siblings since I was 10. Around age 15 I helped out in the child ministry classes at my church. I worked with ages 3,4, & 5. In high school I joined the Porter County Preschool Program where I worked with a preschool teacher everyday and took care of the kids. This experience was so liberating that after high school I got a job at Caring Heart Open arms Daycare where I was hired as the Head Three Year Old teacher. I create lesson plans, prepare activities, implement new learning strategies, maintain safety and health regulations, and I keep a positive, fun attitude.
