Past jobs: My first childcare job was actually when I was 12 years old. I babysat a 5 year old and a 9 year old. But this wasn't your adverse babysitting, the 5 year old was unfortunately very sick and could not eat or drink. So when I babysat I had to feed him special formula through a G tube (a gastric feeding tube that goes through the abdominal wall and into the stomach. From the outside it is capped off and appears like a second belly button) every 2 hours. I did that job for around 4 years.. Then I was an Early Learners Instructor at a centers. Where I helped teach 3 year old's to 5 year old's how to read/write/mathematics. Most of the children knew little to no English, had speech problems, ADD/ADHD, and other things that made learning more difficult for them. On weekends I would Read more input grades into their computer databases when needed. I babysit date nights for a 2 and a half year old who was born with a cleft lip and palette. My last nanny job was for 6 months taking care of a 5 month old and a 2 and a half year old, two dogs, and I'd say a lot more than just light housekeeping. So here's a little bit about me, I focus much of my childcare on reading and looking at art books. I, myself, love to read, embroider,, paint, draw, and I'm pretty much up for anything! I always bring my bag of coloring books and stickers for the kiddos and sometimes I'll bring an old childhood toy of mine that is much different than toys now a days. I also believe time outside is very important for children. Thanks for reading a bit about me! I look forward to hearing from you!
