Taryn - Seeking Work in Wayne

Hourly rate22.85 / hour

I have worked in countless daycare centers, as well as teaching pre-school, being a nanny for 3 young children, for 9 years,(one who is a severe asthmatic), working in family court for abused and neglected children,fieldwork in pediatrics/oncology, and over 14 years experience babysitting.I am currently working towards finishing my degree in child psychology, with an emphasis on trauma and abuse in young children.Compassion, patience, and helping to aid the building of a positive self-esteem are things that I deem most important.Watching a child transform over time from getting simple love and understanding is awe inspiring.A kind word, or even something such as fully explaining why a child should cease a maladaptive behavior, as opposed to yelling can literally make all the difference! My three dearest friends all have children aged 3 and under so bottles, bathes, diapers, a screaming toddler on one leg, and a crying infant on my arm are an art I have learned to maneuver quite well.Safe to say children and multi-tasking go hand in hand.In a good way of course!
