Kristin M. - Seeking Work in Kodak

Full-time hours

Hi! My name is Kristin and I have been caring for children for the past 12 years. I truly love what I do, and cannot imagine doing anything else! I am proud of my strong work ethic, dedication to my "children" and their families, and my initiative to always go above and beyond what is expected. I have been nicknamed 'Mary Poppins' by several of my families; a compliment I hold very dear to my heart. I am experienced in caring for multiples, children with allergies, special needs children, and both boys and girls ranging in age from 2 days to 15 years old. My goal is to provide a fun, safe, loving, and educational experience to the children in my care, incorporating sensory play, reading, arts & crafts, science experiments, library and museum trips, and lots of outdoor play including scavenger hunts! I am certified in infant and adult CPR & First Aid, and possess a clean driving record and a new, safe vehicle. I am a non-smoker, pet-friendly, and am happy to perform light housekeeping, laundry, cooking, or any additional duties needed on a day-to-day basis. I'm the type who "never sits down" and am always looking for ways to keep busy and help out. I believe flexibility, communication, and reliability are important characteristics and instrumental in my profession.
