Krisann P. - Seeking Work in Waco

Full-time hours

My past childcare experience was with a 3 year old boy. His name was Manuel, My neighbors kid. I watched him through out the week, till about mid day everyday. When Manuel would arrive we would pay the X-BOX, color in our coloring books, talk, watch some television, go for short walks with my dog Plex, or play outside if it was a good day. He would let me know when its time to eat and I would cook us up something Yummy! I never left him unattended And he knew I would be there if he needed anything. I believe in time out because kids are curious they want to get into things, try new stuff out and there has to be a limit set from right and wrong. I never came off as scary but he understood that what he did was not acceptable.Sometimes he would say foul language or running Off or Outside without permission ect.As an over all experience it was great. I fe really comfortable with Children.
