Brenda W. - Seeking Work in Irving

17.14 / hour
Full-time hours

I am certified in CPR/First Aid. I'm have worked in the Dallas area with the young infant room, 10 children with three teachers, young toddlers, and the two year olds. I have twenty years of experience with children ranging from four weeks through 12. I also have a B.S. in Early Childhood Education: Preschool Certification. I have extensive experience with six weeks through two's. Coming from Illinois, I am used to lower teacher/student ratios and like them better because you have more one on one with the kids. This age range is amazing because they are so full of wonder, energy and love to experience new things. My philosophy is too exposing the child to activities physically and educationally and making learning fun. I home schooled my three girls so I do like the idea and have the knowledge to help children learn from a young age. I also exposed my children different styles of music at as a young infant on. They were also involved in one week musical camp through a church in Illinois from when my oldest daughter was 7. They put on three performances at the end of the week. I reentered the work force in 2003 into a daycare through Southern Illinois University. I believe in exposing a child as early as possible to reading, manipulatives, and environmental stimulus, describing as you go so the child will expand his/her vocabulary. Thank you for your time, I look forward to talking to you. Brenda.

Maegan K. - Seeking Work in Irving

Full-time hours

My name is Maegan and I am interested in being your nanny! I have been taking care of children since I was sixteen. I have a great background in Early Education being an early preschool teacher, afterschool teacher, and a float in between toddler and infant rooms. Playing, singing, and reading are my specialties, as long as the children are engaged, they are learning. My experience as a nanny has been nothing but positive, I love that the children are growing and learning in their own environment. I have worked with three different families, all within infant to preschool age. I use a daily sheet to communicate what your child's day is like and follow the schedule the parent makes for me so the child doesn't mess up their routine. I'm experienced in making bottles, toddler breakfast and lunch, and occasionally setting stuff out for dinner. Rarely ever do I turn on a tv or use electronic devices, I believe that interaction and exploring the child's surroundings is the most beneficial. Getting to know the child helps me to plan learning enrichment activities based on interests and development and to make sure they are always happy. Housekeeping and laundry, etc. is always done while the child is napping and when time permits because the child is the first priority. Children are my passion and I have lots of love to give. I am CPR/First Aid certified and I have my own transportation. I am reliable, honest, and very caring. I can't wait to hear back from you and I hope you have a great day.

My childcare experience has been an ongoing learning factor in my life for about 8 years now. I began nannying/babysitting family members in San Antonio about 8 years ago until I moved to the DFW. I began to pursue a life long career in childhood education at The University of North Texas and graduated with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. Throughout my time of pursuing my degree, I have worked for a preschool for 4 years, afterschool care for 2years, and nannying for 2 years. It has been a passion of mine to work with children of all ages and helping to mold them in many ways socially and developmentally as well as having FUN!
