Full-time hours

I have had an extensive amount of child care work since I was 11 years old. (26 years experience in child care) Each family had their own way of raising children, schedules, and rules. I learned to adapt to these families and support the parents in their decisions and hopes for their children. I was exposed to different personalities and behaviors of children and learned how to respond to them in a positive way. I sensed how children were feeling and responded accordingly to their needs. I thought of fun games or activities to do with them and I liked to be spontaneous and creative. I gave them lots of encouragement with verbal feedback. I set clear boundaries with them and had them follow the rules their parents had for them. I took what children said into consideration and sometimes changed my original plans to something else that was just as good if not better. I was flexible to parents needs or desires.
