I have over 20 years of experience in childcare. I was a stay at home mom to 4 daughters, and I home schooled all of them. All of my children have either graduated from college or are attending college. Since my children are grown, I am now looking for a family who needs me to help raise their children. I have a wonderful ability and talent for caring for babies and young children. I have worked with infants, toddlers, and elementary age children. I also have experience in twin care, newborns, and children with special needs (ADHD, anxiety disorders, diabetes, etc.) as well as current experience in ages 1-8. I use positive reinforcement whenever I can and every success is celebrated! I believe in caring for the whole child - social, emotional, physical, and intellectual. When I come to your house, your children become my primary concern. Some of the ways I will be caring for your children are: bathing them, music, games, outdoor play, taking walks and exploring, playing sports, potty training, reading books (huge fan of reading), and doing arts and crafts. Other services I offer while caring for your children are: cleaning up after the children, children's laundry, cooking, transportation to doctor/dentist appointments, play dates, trips to the library, swim lessons, or extracurricular activities (i.e. Boy Scouts, soccer practice, etc.) My strengths are in relating well to the child/baby on their level, high level of energy, and forming emotional bonds of trust with the child. I stress safety first at all times, and being able to meet the baby's/child's needs. Once hired, I know I will earn your trust as well as your children's. I strive to be a stable, loving, caring, nurturing force in children's lives, and I would love the chance to work with your children. I have excellent references upon request.
