Amanda’s Bio

Hello Families,

I'm an honest and caring person, intelligent and attentive, and ready to work with your family to understand and meet your childcare needs.

I am a well-seasoned caregiver with an in-depth background working with children:

*5+ years paid experience as director of children's ministries for local churches, working with children ages newborn-12 years old. My role as primary manager for these Christian education programs centered on establishing positive relationships with parents and children, planning a host of activities and initiatives, and implementing program goals in areas such as teaching, volunteer recruitment and training, and ensuring the safety and well-being of each child under my care.

*Stemming from my role as a children's ministry director, I have established positive relationships with the families involved in my programs, and have been invited by them to provide childcare for their families outside of church, going above and beyond my traditional role.

*I have a collective 2+ years of experience as a nanny, primary caregiver and mother's helper for children ranging in ages from newborns up to 7 years old.

*I am comfortable providing care for children of all ages up through high school.

Here are my strengths, and why you should hire me:

*I love kids and will treat them with kindness, nurturing them as if they're my own - utmost commitment to care and safety. My priority is your kids - not my personal concerns, texting, TV or computers.

*Great balance of taking initiative and open to direction (stickler for following the instructions set out by the family).

*Positive, relational personality with a great sense of humor

*Natural gift for communication and teaching; believe that everyday experiences present opportunities for learning.

*Open, honest and respectful with families and like to know your expectations in advance.

*Enjoy taking walks, reading, writing, driving kids, running errands, light household work, playing games, doing crafts, managing household, helping with homework, and staying busy with intentional activities for growth and development.

If you like what you have read so far, please contact me at your earliest convenience. Thank you for considering me for a relationship with your family!

Amanda was wonderful and extremely helpful. I am a stay-at-home mother of 3 boys (6,4,2) and I am undergoing medical treatment. Amanda pretty much ran the household for the month of January. She took care of my children (and me too) during this time. I had several Dr.s appt. during the week and was unable to drive. She took me to my appts and took care of the boys while I met with my Dr's. She drove and picked up the kids from school. Played with the boys, took them on outings, went grocery shopping, cooked/baked with the boys and did light house cleaning. Amanda is fun, has a fantastic sense of humor, helpful, is totally reliable, always on time, ready to go on a moments notice, very flexible, confident in her boundries in discipling the children, always reports back to me, and never hesitates to ask questions. She was sensitive and understanding to my needs and my condition and it was extremely helpful. I appreciated her services very much. Thank you, Amanda!!!!
