Full-time hours

I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelors of Science. My degree is Child Development and Family Studies with a minor in Educational Psychology. I am a fun loving, caring, and open-minded person that believes in being very responsible, dependable and a hard worker. I believe the key component for children's growth and learning is through playful imagination, creativity, and exploration. Children need to be respected and recognized for their importance as individuals. Children grow by how they develop emotionally, socially, and cognitively. With time, I will develop a relationship with the child that will gain trust and view me as a teacher. With the diverse characteristics of children, each brings new opportunities. I've been working in child care for ten years and have found it very rewarding. I have been a nanny for three years. My daily routine would be making sure the children have nutritious meals and snacks. I coordinate a variety of creative and educational activities, we love spending time playing outdoors such as playing sports or playing with chalk and going on a nature walk. I feel play dates is a great opportunity for the children to engage in play with other children. I transport the children to school, play dates, library, zoo, drum lesson, ski lesson, swimming lesson, etc. My skills include laundry, preparing meals, cleanings dishes, and vacuuming. During the nanny experience I have found that cleaning with the children and making it a "game" is important for child development and prepares them for growing up.

I have been babysitting since I was 12 years old, watching all of my younger sisters friends/family. I was a babysitter/nanny for a new family in the neighborhood and helped raise their two beautiful children and help out whenever they needed with anything. I also became the 'go-to' babysitter for all the young children in the neighborhood. I was recently a full time nanny for a year for an infant and a toddler. I have experience with everything that an infant brings along; diapers, bottles, feedings, naps, crawling, walking, playtime etc. as well as potty training, reading and anything that a child needs!

I also student teach in a toddler classroom, so I am with 14 children ages 18 months to 3 years, so I have a lot of diaper changing experience!

I have many years of experience with childcare. I have watched infants, toddlers, and older. I am great with all ages! I became very close with the mother I was a live-in nanny for. She asked me over short-notice when she needed to run to the store or out for a sudden emergency, any situation, I was there. I also would go shopping, do laundry, help with dinner. Anything she needed I was right there for her.
