Pam’s Bio

 Experience with newborns-school age, special needs, twins, overnights, vacations, driving, and all daily activities. I would love to help enrich your child(rens) lives! I've worked with kids 6wks-14yrs and for 10 years. I plan on applying to the program to be a pediatric physical therapist assistant and would like to minor in early childhood ed. Plenty of references!  My own car (and I have carseats) Willing to do pretty much anything to help you out!
 I absolutely love kids! I plan to work with children the rest of my life and really enjoy watching them grow and learn and being a role model for them and a part of their life. Kids have always just been drawn to me and I can really connect with children. I love getting down on the floor and playing with them all while using my knowledge to enrich their lives and help them grow into the wonderful people they can be.  
I'm currently in college, and will soon apply to the pediatric physical therapy program. I've worked with kids since I was 16 (bday in 84) and babysat since I was 12.

Classes Pertaining to Child development I've taken: development and psychology of the child, nurtirtion, language and literacy for the child, child development 1 and 2, psychology of child, and also an early childhood education class.
Sittercity experience: This is my 3rd year working with families from sittercity. My youngest I started with was 5 weeks old. I've done driving and activities with a family (tennis, daycare, school),  weekly jobs, one time jobs, and I have people who call when they need a back up sitter.
