My past childcare experience: I've officially made my living as a nanny for the past 8 years, but I helped raise my little sister who is five years younger than myself which would give me a total of 31 years experience! I babysat for many wonderful families from the time I was 10, with family sizes up to 4 plus their friends on occasion, and all age ranges. I babysat for most of these families until I went away to college. While in High School I taught at the preschool for one term, and also volunteered at Vacation Bible Schools and at a Daycamp in the summers. I also worked as a teaching assistant/gymnastics spotter at the dance studio in which I took many classes myself. In college I took many education/ child-development courses as I was originally planning to be a teacher. I have done tutoring and mentoring for school aged children and teens. I was an assistant director for the theatrical company ShowBiz Kidz for 17 years, working with kids ages 4-18. I spent three years working in the children's department of a book store where I was allowed to design my own weekly story time, complete with related crafts and activities. This quickly became my favorite part of the job and led me to seek out a job where I could play with and read to children full time. For this reason I went into daycare and spent two years at a wonderful daycare/early learning center where I had amazing experiences with all ages up to kindergarten, but specialized in infant and toddler care and education.I have been very blessed in finding wonderful families to nanny for the past 8 years and can't wait to find the next!
Additional Comments: As a theater person, I'm very good at improvising and fitting myself to the needs of any situation; I'm very hard working, but know how to stay relaxed (even in the middle of a room FULL of two year olds!) and have fun no matter what happens. I have many references available who will vouch for how wonderful I am with kids, but also want to mention I am very good with animals (as long as they have between two and four legs) and have done some dog training at my local animal shelter. I am looking for a family who wants amazing things for their kids (and pets if you have them) and am willing to make a long term commitment to the right family.
