My past childcare experience: I have been what I like to call a "professional baby-sitter" for fifteen years. I started out as a mother's helper in my church's 2-4 year old class. As I got older I became one of the lead teachers for that class. I have taken care of groups of children aging from infant to teenagers and in numbers from one to twelve. I have been a mother's helper for many mother's in my church. I was raised in a single parent household with younger siblings. As the oldest child in my family I was called upon to take care of my younger brother and sister while my father worked.
Additional Comments: Childcare philosophy: With all the children I have taken care of over the years I have found three very central and key elements that I use with every child I take care of. First: Each child is a precious gift from God. Because each child is a gift, I treat every child as if they were my own precious gift. Secondly, I believe in the concept that a child responds better when given options when faced with a difficult behavior. I give them a list of three options that corrolate to her present behavior. I then steer her into choosing the proper behavior and reward her for making the right choice. Lastly, I encourage fun. I love games. As I mentioned above even in the car, I try to engage the kids I'm with to use creativity and imagination to make the tedious and sometimes stressful times in the car that much more enjoyable. I am willing to move for any position I am offered. I have lived in Florida and Wyoming. I am willing to move just about anywhere! I am twenty-four years old, single and have no children. I have family spread out all over the country and they are supportive of the choices I have made for my life.
