My childcare experience began many years ago with babysitting during junior high and throughout high school. I had numerous families I babysat for in my community, with ages ranging from newborn to age 12. Since high school, I have had six nanny jobs, two of which were for children with special needs, including autism and ADHD. For the past eleven years, I have been teaching xx Preschool. During this time, I have taught 2 to 6 year olds, and have been teaching the pre-kindergarten class (ages 3-5) for the last six years. xx early childhood education is a therapeutic, holistic education rich in art and music with an emphasis on fostering creativity and cultivating a lifelong love of learning. I have attended many conferences and have completed many extensive trainings, while earning numerous certificates (which I can share with you). I have attended the annual xx for the past ten years and have received a certificate for completing a Puppetry in Early childhood Teacher Workshop from the Juniper Tree School of Story and Puppetry Arts. My most recent and extensive training was completed in July 2013. It was a two year training in Denver, CO called, "Nurturing the Roots," through Denver Anthroposophic Studies. It was a 'Professional Deepening Course in Therapeutic Approach to Waldorf Early Childhood Education.' Areas of emphasis were: ~ Child development - birth to age nine ~ Sensory development, emphasizing touch, proprioception, vestibular and life senses ~ Child observation and child study methods ~ Constitutional polarities as tools for understanding processes of movement, wakefulness and developmental maturation ~ Developmentally healthy movement ~ Introduction to puppetry as a healing art ~ Developmental screenings: -Nursery/Preschool play-based screening -1st Grade/School entrance screening -2nd Grade Developmental screening. I should also mention that I am certified by MEDIC First Aid Pediatric Plus in CPR, AED, and First Aid for Children, Infants, and Adults. I am currently enrolled in the Office of Child Care's Central Background Registry, and I am current with Oregon Food Handlers card. I can provide copies of all of my trainings and certificates, as well as my first aid/CPR card, food handlers card and background registry. I have an extensive list of references you may contact.

Kristina W. - Seeking Work in Bend

Hi! My name is Kristina and welcome to my little profile! :) So a little about myself: I'm 22-years-old and have lived in Oregon since January of 2010. I was born and raised mostly in the Bay Area and Central California. I am the oldest of 7 children and the third oldest of an additional 8 step-siblings - so I do know my way around kids. Growing up, my mom ran her own in-home daycare, and I used to help her out with the kids all the time. I also worked in my church's nursery for a time during high school. I loved it. Currently, I'm working as a cashier, but to be honest, it's not at all leaving me happy with my life. I want to do something more rewarding. School isn't financially an option right now (however, in 2008, I did complete an early childhood development class and had intended on furthering that), and since my youngest sibling is now 12-years-old, I'm really missing the cries and giggles of little ones, which has led me to search for a nanny position. I understand that working with children is an important job, and that these little ones are most important to you. I love arts and crafts (I'm a glitter and finger-paint fan), music, and playing make-believe, even when that means I'm crawling on the floor for hours pretending to be horses or dragons! I also love children's books and think it's very important to read to children, even the littlest ones. I speak very basic French and very, very limited Spanish. However I hope to increase my knowledge of both languages in the future. I'm really very dedicated to making sure your children are happy and cared for. I don't have any experience as a nanny, specifically, but I've always been around children. I am looking for something nearby (Central Oregon), however I'm also interested in positions in California (specifically the San Francisco Bay Area, as that's my "home"). I hope you can give me a chance to be a part of your family.

I have had experience with childcare from a very young age. I come from a very big family, I have three brothers and three sisters, all of which are younger than me so I helped care and raise them growing up. I started officially babysitting for other families around the age of 10 and have done it ever since. Before I moved to Oregon, I was a nanny for my chiropractor and I loved it so so much. I have been a nanny for big families, small families, childern with special needs, and foster children. I have also house sat for any of these families and gone on family trips with them to have an extra helping hand. Working with children is probably one of my top passions and I enjoy it very much. I'm very good with animals as well, I have had all different kinds of animals since I was little from house cats and dogs, to horses and reptiles. I'm very creative when baby sitting or nannying. I love to do arts and crafts projects with the kids, or play dress up, or do outdoor activities. I have worked with children of all ages and families of all sizes.
