Teaching, playing with and caring for children has always been a passion, for me the rewards are endless. My strong belief is that education and developmental growth between infancy to age seven are the years that create a strong foundation for progressive learning for a child's entire life. A position that allows me to spend concentrated time having fun and doing stimulating learning activities that are age appropriate with the children is my ideal. The length of the activity will be determined by the child's interest, age or attention span, and of course the parent's wishes. My childcare approach is to provide stimulating activities; alternating both fun and learning. From experience, children do better when they have structure with plenty of love and encouragement. Most recently I was employed as a livein nanny, for 3 children ages 3,5 and an infant Previous to that for a little boy; the child and I enjoyed many activities together daily: play groups, weekly library programs, the zoo, town park, pool, reading, learning and fun games.
