Full-time hours

Since I was 12 or so I began watching my younger brother on a consistant basis, as well as began volunteering regularly in the toddler & infant nurseries at church when I was only 13. My junior & senior year of high school I babysat for a wonderful family with 2 younger children 3 days a week, which resulted in me becoming a pro at sticky situations like potty training & the terrible twos temper tantrums. I believe in wholesome food, restricting electronics to focus on quality activities, spending time outdoors, & creating a fun, yet healthy environment. I am a certified babysitter by the American Red Cross & on July 9th, 2014 I will be certified for CPR & first aid for infants, children, & adults. I love children of all ages and I really miss babysitting and nannying. I am a fantastic childcare provider because I genuinely love to interact with children. I equally enjoy playing and studying with them and teaching them new things. I am fun but I am able to take my job seriously. I am constantly attentive and am very capable of taking care of a children's' needs. I have no issue with changing diapers and I'll even help teach toddlers how to potty train. I do not mind cooking or cleaning as well & am very capable of both. I am respectful, well-mannered, honest, & I can set a wonderful example for children.

I first started off babysitting my niece when i was 15. I would get her up in the morning, help her get ready for school, then drop her off at school and pick her up. When she got out I would help her with her homework, cook dinner, and make sure she took a bath and brushed he teeth at night. I did that for 2 1/2 years until she moved back home with her mother (NOT PAID) I also was a nanny for my sister because she use to work to much. She is a foster mother, so she had kids with varying ages. She had 1 set of twins who were mentally challenaged, and one 2 year old girl. I would take care of them from 9a-9p drive them to any appointments the twins needed to attend, cooked, housekeeping, and tend to all of their needs.

I have worked with children since I was in high school. I previously worked at two childcare centers, and my last job in college I worked at I was an assistant teacher my major in college is child psychology and children are my passion! Coming from a deep African background watching and having children is apart of our cultural lifestyle. Children are blessings to families so working with kids is something I love doing! I just recently worked for Carnival Cruise line as a youth staff employee where we worked with infants all the way to early teens this made me appreciate being exposed to children of all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life. And a common factor I found is that when you can help a child in being happy the parents are just happy which is what I strive for!
