As a nanny and babysitter, I have over 20 years of experience caring for children of all ages, from infants to preteens. I also have a high functioning Autistic son, so I have experience with special needs children. In the education field, I worked at a public charter school with a diverse school population of children who required special education and had behavior problems, as well as regular education students ranging from Kindergarten to 8th grade. As a teenager, I volunteered at a local daycare in the infant and toddler rooms where my mother worked as an Infant Teacher. I also grew up in a house where my parents fostered many different children. My mother also ran a home daycare where I participated heavily in the care of children varying from 2 months old to 5 years old. I have always loved children and they gravitate towards me as well. Read more In my previous experience as daytime and live-in weekend nanny of multiple children, I learned how difficult it can be to manage the varying needs of children in diverse stages of development. I honed the ability to care for each child individually, while paying close attention to the needs of the group. I am in favor of a structured day as it gives children an opportunity to follow a schedule and to learn and understand discipline. However, I do like to see children enjoy themselves and have fun. Most importantly, I am committed to providing a safe, nurturing environment for the children in my care. **Having worked in the school system in an instructional role and secretarial role required me to get fingerprinted as well as have a thorough background check done**
