Doreen M. - Seeking Work in Bridgewater

Hourly rate17.14 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

"The next best thing..." to being there yourself is to provide your child with a loving, educated caretaker who has years of successful experience in home based care. I consider it a privilege to play an active role in the lives of children and look forward to establishing another long term, mutually respectful relationship with a new family. I have spent the past 10 years providing high quality care for children ranging in age from infant to 8. A typical day could include anything from a fabulously messy finger paint project to a relaxing cuddle in the rocking chair and everything in between. In addition to at-home games and activities, I am happy to provide children with access to lessons and programs that stimulate their learning and activate their imaginations. Most important, however, is my commitment to the safely, security and well being of your child. My first and foremost priority is to ensure that he/she is safe, secure and stimulated with age appropriate activities. I will support you as you help your child to develop his/her character and am happy to share my experience as you navigate the challenges of parenthood (tantrums, potty training, limit testing, etc.). No one can take the place of a parent, but the families I serve are all in agreement that Doreen is "the next best thing". Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about your little one.

As the oldest growing up in a small neighborhood with 12 children ranging from infant to 7 years old, I was "the babysitter" at 11 years old. I watched each an every child grow. Ten years later, I still support the four families on a regular basis. From late nights, over nights, early mornings, weekends, after school, driving the children to sports, I have done everything! I have worked for afterschool programs, have been actively involved in supporting teachers within the classroom grades 1-6 for the past 5 years, and volunteered time in supporting disadvantaged children in the local area.
