Hello! My name is Alissa, and I have a passion for caring for little ones! I have six years of experience with children ages newborn to 12 years old. I have taken a few early childhood education and development classes. Within these classes, I have become educated on child psychology and development, how to plan stimulating, educational activities, how to handle challenging behaviors, how to create a safe learning environment, helping children work in teams, building trust with young children, encouraging healthy nutrition, and helping children gain independence. Additionally, I have volunteered at A Night To Shine a few years in a row. A Night To Shine is a prom for children and adults with special needs. As an organization, and a volunteer, our goal is to ensure each individual feels love and inclusion. Each time, I was paired with an amazing child with special needs, and I was to Read more navigate the child through the event and ensure they had an awesome time. It was truly amazing to witness genuine happiness and experience true friendship with the amazing people who attended the prom. Personally, I love being around children. Being able to connect on a deep level, build a safe, loving relationship, and offer a stable environment are some of my favorite things about being a nanny. I absolutely love being able to express my creativity and imagination through play and activities. I take pride in doing the best I can to ensure your littles are safe. I am CPR certified, first aid certified, and fully Covid vaccinated. Pertaining to drivers safety, I have a safe, reliable vehicle, a valid drivers license, and a fully insured vehicle. I have built strong relationships with multiple families and am more than willing to provide references to speak on my character and my care for their children. I am so excited to speak with you and hopefully set up a time to meet with you and your kiddos!
