Hello my name is Vita Drakes. I've been working with children professionally for the past ten years. I specialize in working in early childhood development with infants and toddlers ages 6 weeks to 23 months, 2 years to 6 years old preschool age. I also worked with 7 years to 12 years working in after school programs as an Evening Director. I have volunteered at Comers Children Hospital where I worked one on one engaging in age appropriate games, arts and crafts and reading with children with special challenges and chronic conditions for 3 years. I currently work for Bright Horizons Family Solutions for nearly 4 years as a Lead Infant/Toddler Teacher and Childcare Provider. I am also a qualified mandated reporter and certified in C.P.R/First aid. I am very loving, patient and outgoing and having activities that children will find entertaining. Baby sitting is something I love doing because Read more everyday is different and new and it's amazing being a part of a child's learning and growing experience. I am available to work evenings Monday through Friday and Sunday's after 6pm and all day Saturday's for occasional and date night sitting. Looking forward to hearing from you.
