Natalie L. - Seeking Work in Andover

I have worked for families with up to 5 children, and with children as young as 6 weeks, including twins. I have been with my current family for 3 years, but the little one will be starting preschool so its time to start with another family. I would prefer to work with infants or toddlers so the position could be long term and I could build a strong bond with the child. I have developed a fun preschool like program for when the child reaches the appropriate age to maximize learning and develop interests in a variety of topics. When appropriate I enjoy taking the kiddos for field trips that correlate with what we are learning about (zoos, museums, library etc.) I think its so important to turn each day into a fun learning experience with lots of play time and exploring!

Spending time with children is not only one of my passions, but it's also a delight. Since I grew up as a child of a daycare provider, I learned to take care of children at a young age. At the age of 13, I became a babysitter to many in my church and neighborhood. From this moment on I've taken care of children, teens and infants in various ways. Some of these include: summer camp councilor, Sunday school teacher, vacation Bible school leader, nursery volunteer, special ed para professional and nanny.
