Whether in preschool, daycare, or in-home i've been lucky enough to work with kids pretty consistently for the last 13 years of my life (geez I sound old :/) Gosh I love it though! My last 3 childcare jobs have all been in-home, and that's definitely what I enjoy the most. I love having the opportunity to just really teach & engage kids through crafts, music, stories, cooking, nature... so incredible watching them grow & learn. They're just all so brilliant & such unique personalities & we just have so much fun!
I'm currently nannying 2 toddlers (20 & 21 months) & have been since they were 2 & 3 months. I have them from 8:30-5:30 M-F. At the end of August however I will be moving to East Nashville & will no longer be caring for one of these girls. So I'm looking for an additional child (or 2) to join us in our fun-filled days!!
While our days our undoubtedly fun-centric, they're definitely filled with lots of learning. We have a weekly theme, letter, & color that our daily activities are focused around. We do 2-3 crafts a week based on our theme & coloring pages based on our letter. Song & dance time also correlates. Mondays are library days (story-time, puppet show or music time). We also get all of our books to bring home for that week's theme & extras the girls pick out of course.
We spend a lot of time outside! The heat's been limiting lately, but generally we go to the park at least twice a week, & the zoo every other (have a membership & under 2 is free). Neighborhood walks are a regular, & we've added some sprinkler action as of late. Many other activities come up, but these are what we stick to on the weekly.
Things will definitely change a bit once the move happens, but hoping to keep most activities up. :)
A lot will be dependent on the age(s) of the additional child(ren).
I am not necessarily only looking for a toddler age child. I'd love to have anywhere from 2 months to 5 years really.
The 20-month-old I will still be watching is developmentally where a 3-year-old is typically at, but she is so good with kids of all ages. She LOVES babies (so gentle & loving), but loves playing with older kids as well!
I currently watch the girls at her home, & since they will be moving to East Nash as well, would like to continue watching them in their new home. Definitely open to other arrangements if preferred!
But yeah, that's the just... if you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me. call, text, email, whatever's easiest :)
