I have a great deal of experience with children in a variety of settings, and I am comfortable with all types and ages of children. I would consider my child care style to be very laid-back and casual, yet I know how to be authoritative when necessary. I make every effort to explain things to children, and I always try to treat them like real people. I have a great sense of humor, and I enjoy being goofy and laughing with children. I always support parents in their wishes for their children, and am good at enforcing rules when appropriate. I like to be active with children, and am comfortable with any situation. I have worked with children of a variety of ages, genders, and abilities in many settings. I have been babysitting for over 8 years, and have worked for approximately 15 families. I was a nanny for a 3 month old, and also an 11 month old. I have also worked with children in camp settings as a counselor for a total of 9 camps over 6 summers, and I am currently working as a full-time counselor at a daycamp for ages 7-12. I am an Elementary Education major, and I have spent over a hundred hours in elementary classrooms as a student teacher. I have a very casual, comfortable style with children, and am a naturally very energetic person. I also have very good communication skills, and am good at communicating with parents. I am also infant and child CPR trained, and would be competent to handle any emergency situation. Children enjoy my willingness to be silly, and yet they understand that I am in constant control of the situation. My vast experience with all ages and all settings makes me a very qualified nanny, and I am capable of working with any child.

I have worked in a variety of settings. During my Middle School years I worked for a daycare which provided care for children ranging in age from infancy to teens. This included playing (indoors and outdoors) age appropriate games, taking children out on field trips, potty training, changing diapers, feeding, and supervising naps. On my own I have babysat many children ranging in age from newborn to about 12 yrs old. One of the children I watched was a behaviorally challenged child who needed firm guidance and a strict schedule in order to maintain a calm demeanor. In the last 4 years I have had one nanny position. Caring for 3 children-one of which had moderate to severe medical issues and severe food allergies. We visited the parks, went out on trips, or stayed in and played games, did craft projects, or occasionally watched a movie during an afternoon nap. Two of the children were school aged, and made sure homework was done before any playtime was allowed.
