Allie S. - Seeking Work in Brier

22.85 / hour
Full-time hours

I have been working with children since my Junior year of high-school. After high-school I got a part time job at a daycare facility that eventually turned into a long term full time position. I worked with all age groups including toddlers, preschoolers, pre K and school aged children. I provided a safe and fun classroom environment for the children. Each day I executed a daily curriculum that consisted of daily art projects, story and circle times which also included teaching the children letters, numbers, days of the week and months of the year, along with many other fun and adventurous activities! I have experience serving healthy breakfast, snack and lunches. After about 4 years of working at a daycare facility I decided to become a personal nanny. I nannied for a family in Kirkland for over a year. I took care of two children. We kept busy throughout the day with fun activities and many daily outings! I believe in keeping children away from the television and computers as much as possible and keeping their minds and body's active.
