Kati S. - Seeking Work in Kent

14.28 / hour
Full-time hours

I've worked along side my mom taking care of many kids, ranging from ages newborns to elementary schoolers. I've organized play time, nap time, arts and crafts, outside activities, and even made up new recipes for healthy and fun snacks. I also was a teacher for kindergarteners for a local church's Vacation Bible School for two years. I have a new baby sister, she's three months old and I love her to death. She's our family's little miracle. I love to sing to her and play with her, and I really love when I can make her laugh (:

My first experience with a child was my sister. I helped my mom feed her, bathe her, and change her diaper growing up. Then, in high school I took Child Care and Development one and two where I not only learned about children but ran a preschool three days a week. My first job was where my co-workers and i watched up to 20 kids while their parents were working out at the gym. I served as a volunteer children's cheer-leading coach in high school. I am currently volunteering at my church's nursery where I work at the nursery taking care of babies from ages 0-2.

I have been working with children for as long as I could remember. My Mother is an Early Development Specialist and works with children with special needs from 3 months to 3 years old. I always enjoyed going to work with her when I was younger. When I got into high school I started to do a lot of volunteer work there. To add to this my grandmother owned her own daycare for infants to 12 year olds. When I was 10, and until I was 16, I spent my summers working there. When I was 17 I started to babysit for two twin boys who were both autistic. I am now working on getting my bachelors degree in Human Development and Family Studies with a concentration in Youth and Child Development at Kent State University. After graduating from there, I plan on opening my own daycare.
