I have been a childcare provider for well over 30 years. I love what I do so that makes it easy to be the best. I have a child of my own who is currently 6 years old and the light of my life. I treat every child in my care as I would want others to treat my son, with love, kindness, respect, and compassion. Some of the family with children that I have cared for in the past are now friends that come visit for playdates. For fun I see what the the child likes to do...if they like cars and trucks then we will plays lots of games with them...if they perfer blocks or arts and crafts then that is the way I would go when thinking of fun stuff for us to do. I love taking children for walks or to a near by playground if that is alright with their parents. When I care for a child they do not just sit around and watch tv or play by themselves. I interact with them. Thats what I am there for.

I've worked at a salon and my job was to be the host of the parties. I would play games with the girls, and make sure each child had an activity to be doing. I've worked at the xx in NY, and my position was a counselor. I helped with swimming in the mornings, played games with them and did arts and crafts. I've also babysat for children, some were infants so I have diaper experience. I also worked at a daycare as an assistant; so I would help with food-prep, diaper changes, organizing files during nap time, and did cleaning.
