Amanda’s Bio

As the oldest child of 5, I'm very used to all things "baby." I changed my first diaper at the age of 4. I'm versatile with both regular bottles and the ones that use the little plastic bags, and am experienced in the use of cloth diapers. I have experience caring for twins and children with special needs. I play the piano, and I have experience teaching private piano lessons and music theory. I'm a very capable cook, and can prepare meals for the children in my care.
When it comes to spending time with children and engaging them in a healthy environment, I'm a firm believer in nourishment through acceptance and love, while still standing firm on healthy and clearly communicated boundaries. I always do my best to be fair, never playing favorites, or letting certain behaviors slide by in one child while condemning them in another.  I strive to be a help to the parents who hire me, never replacing them in authority but affirming and going by the standards they desire to raise their children by.
