My past childcare experience: I have been babysitting since I was 12, caring for a wide range of families and children. I was a regular sitter/nanny/mothers helper for four boys ages 3-14 for about two years back in my home state of CT. Currently residing in CA, I have been a regular sitter (day time, date night, overnights) for a family with one boy, aged 3 and one girl, 6 months old. Both of these have been wonderful experiences, and I have certainly learned to handle a variety of situations, ages, and energy levels through these experiences. Since I have an undergraduate degree in psychology, I absolutely love babysitting because I get to see those principles and processes in action! I try to be a continuation of the family's child rearing philosophies because I believe consistency is key to raising a healthy child. I love being active and outdoors, and love love love interacting with children in an active setting - sports, day trips, nature walks etc. Parents know best, and I am here to provide support to parenting in any and every way possible! I also worked at a therapeutic residential boarding school for adolescents with special needs. I have worked with adolescents dealing with behavioral and learning deficits, Aspergers Syndrome, psychiatric difficulties, as well as family obstacles. Through this position I have become better at adapting to the roller coaster ride that is raising a child!
Additional Comments: I am currently a graduate PhD student in Political Science at the University of California-Irvine, but I originally hail from CT. My schedule is very flexible, and I am willing to travel with families as needed.
