Colleen’s Bio

Hi!  My name is Colleen.  I have been lucky enough to be a stay at home mom during most of my children’s infant, toddler and pre-school years a  I have cared for children since I was a teenager and I have had experience providing for children with Down's Syndrome and Asperger's Autism.  Prior to having children of my own I was an office manager, executive assistant as well as sales professional. I bring with me a variety of accomplishments and life experiences, all of which allow for me to provide you with an informed, nurturing, skilled companion. 
I had in my care, for 1 year, three toddlers, ranging in age from 13 mos. to 20 mos. and one younger at 7 mos.  I spent all day with them  Monday through Thursday and part of Friday.  I supervised meals and snacks and ensured that they were outside for regular physical activities.  I engaged them in stimulating indoor activities to help encourage their language and other social skills.  I worked as a nanny fro, 2009 until 2012 for the same family, caring for the little one from age 8 mos. until 3 1/2 years old.  Most recently I've been nannying for a little girl who was 1 year old in August 2012(When I began).  With all my little ones I make sure we have physical acitiviy time, social time, i.e.; going to library and play groups, we play one on one and read to each other and we have creative/art time.
Not only will I be an excellent caregiver; I am confident your little one(s) and I will become friends.    I have ample experience with children of varied ages.    My house has always been one of those "neighborhood hang-outs" and I love it that way.  On any given weekend there are an arbitrary number of kids here and I keep them busy.  I like to read.  I like to take walks.  I enjoy cooking.  We have fun.  We take hikes, we go on picnics, we have dance parties, we have craft days, we play pretend, we put on shows and play music.  I have a lot of fun with my kids [and when I say “my kids” I mean each and everyone that ends up hanging out here.]  I am quite crafty so when they have a school project that's extra special fun for me.  Even if your little ones might not yet be ready for school projects; there is so much we can do with numbers and letters and other developmental projects/games. 
I find myself with available hours and am looking for permanent, p/t work. Looking forward to hearing from you.
