Meet Lancelota

  • Comfortable with pets

I believe children should be treated just as they are, little people.  I like to read to them, talk with them, play games with them, take them to the park and for walks, teach them, listen to them, give them gifts and treats.  I believe communication and love are the greatest gifts that a person can offer a child.  Children also need to be nurtured, cherished, commended, protected, and disciplined.  I am a firm believer that children thrive best in an environment wherein they feel free to express themselves and are provided everything they need to feel cared for and loved.  I take very seriously the responsibility of taking care of someone's child.  When a child is in my care, I feel the child is "mine" so to speak. I am a compassionate, caring, loving caregiver with admirable qualities. I believe I am the ideal person to care for your Read more child because I am a very intelligent, honest, and experienced person who not only understands the needs of children, but enjoys being around to nurture them and assist in their development and growth.  I am a patient individual who is efficient and results-oriented based on my clients needs and demands.  As a reliable and productive person, I enthusiastically approach each care-giving situation and sincerely try to leave a lasting impression. Additionally, I volunteer extensively in my community helping others. What motivates me is gratitude from my clients. I also appreciate clients who are open, friendly and are willing to provide a positive and healthy working relationship. Should you decide to contact me, I am available for an interview immediately.
