Having the opportunity to aide and witness the growth and development of a child is very magical and touching. After 15 years in this field, I can honestly say that I have the best job in the world! My experience ranges vastly from working with newborns to school aged children as well as children with special needs. I have 4 years of experience teaching Pre-K, have coached team sports (t-ball, soccer, gymnastics) and also lead a children's cooking class for a few semesters. My private care experience includes working in nanny shares, overnight care for infants and teens, and full week/weekend care while parents are away.
My approach to childcare has evolved over the years. My philosophy is to facilitate a consistent, loving environment where children can learn through play and exploration which in turn builds confidence and awareness of themselves and the world around them. I do my best to provide child-lead activities that empower independence, nurture curiosity and promote creative thinking. I feel strongly in the power of free-time, free-play and free-range movement. Our days will be planned, but also flexible and adaptable.
Some of my favorite activities to do with children include: music and movement, creating of any kind: crafts, cooking, building. Going on educational outings, to play dates and grocery shopping :)
I love working with side-by-side with children and their families, getting to know them and share in their journey. I would love to work with a family that shares a similar philosophy and values my years of experience in this field.
