Chelsea’s Bio

I currently live and study at the University of California Santa Cruz (UCSC). I am a childcare provider because I love caring for children. I have extensive experience in the area of childcare. I gained my first babysitter and first aid certification at the age of 12. I have worked as a childcare provider for other families since then. I have provided care for a wide range of ages including newborns, toddlers, grade-schoolers, middle-schoolers and teens. I moved from Chicago to become a transfer at UCSC this quarter. In Chicago this past year I have gained ample experience with two pairs of twin toddlers. I also spent the past two years providing after-school care for two elementary school boys. I have extensive experience with children with mental and physical disabilities through my seven years of volunteer work at the Hanson Center, an equine therapy center in Burr Ridge, IL. I also have substantial experience with children with learning disabilities as well. I have no lifestyle rules that would affect how I care for another's child, although I would hope to accommodate any that you may hold for your own family. My philosophy is to keep children happy and entertained while remaining active and creative. I achieve this by playing with the whims and imagination of a kid while caring like an adult.
