Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

First and foremost I am a mother of a beautiful 11-year-old daughter. She is the reason why I wanted to change my career and work with children. I have worked in Child Care for 8 years. I worked for Kinder-Care Learning Center for 10 months when I left to take a job closer to home at Bright Days Learning Center. I spent the next 6 years working with some fantastic families and developing some wonderful friendships with co-workers, children, and parents. While I worked at Bright Days I was responsible to create weekly lesson plans, clean/disinfect toys, sweep, dust, take care of the classroom pets, change diapers/potty train, and set the table and even assemble food for meal times. My favorite times spent with the children I have worked with have been taking nature walks, finger painting, reading, running around playing tag on the playground, and calendar time. I love watching children work their minds and have fun while they are learning. Smiles, giggles, and the love children give me are the best rewards ever. I have worked with children ages 6 weeks to 11 years old. I have been certified in ECI & ECII since 2003 and am also certified in CPR & First Aid. The past year and a half I have been a Live-Out Nanny for a family that I have worked with at Bright Days. They have 2 boys and one girl ages 3, 7, & 10. I was responsible to transport them to and from after school activities, help with homework, light housework, cooking meals, giving baths, and putting the children to bed. I have even done overnights with the children while their parents are traveling for work. I have 3 families that I work with when the parents want "date nights" or when the children are out of school. I have been working with these families for about 5 years and will continue to do so as long as they will have me.
