I have worked in childcare for a total of about 12 years. I have also worked for the same family for around 10 years. They have three children the youngest being 10 and the older two are now in college. While working with this family I have done one on one care, single family care and nanny share. As all the children went into school I worked in a child care center during school hours and had the children before/after. Taking them to and from multiple activities and helping with house work. I truly enjoy being with the family watching the children grow and seeing the wonder in there eyes at the things they learn. I have classroom knoweldge as well as in home-care.In the classroom I ensure the safety of the children in my care. Instruct participants in recreational activities, maintain a safe and healthy environment for children and prepared lesson plans. All of this is used in a home setting aswell, it might not all be written down the way it would be in a classroom but its all still a part of the day.

I was born the oldest of 9 children so childcare has always been part of my life. I was the nanny for my youngest sister for 2 years, after that, I was a nanny for a 3-year-old girl and her 5-year-old brother for two years. We had a great time on all kinds of after school adventures; zoos, trails, swimming pools and other fun stuff. We were able to fit in lots of fun while still making sure they had clean bedrooms and their homework had been done. While I was their nanny, I also cooked dinner on the nights I was there and did light housework. During that time, I also did intermittent care for infant/toddler twin boys. That was done in-home and involved lots of fun wrestling and dance moves. Right now, I am the assistant children's director at my church, managing an average of 80 kids per Sunday and 5 classrooms each week. I am currently a real estate agent but I miss having kids in my day to day so I'm hoping to find kids to love on again. I am open to all ages and have most of my experience with children from birth to 8 years old. I have reliable transportation and a list of fun things to excite and entertain little ones.
