Monique’s Bio

Hello! My name is Monique and thank you for stopping by my profile. Having been a Pre-School Teacher and an Aunt to 4 young nephews - I know how daunting it can be to look to strangers to help you care for your little ones. I hope that I can be a great help to your family when you need it the most!

About Me:
 I'm an energetic, fun-loving girl that LOVES kids! Teenagers will talk to me about the latest music issues and toddlers won't let me go a minute without my funny voice impressions. I'd like to say I am proficient in diverse subjects ranging from Dora the Explorer to Lady Gaga - but I always find that my students and charges always have something new to teach me.
 
I am originally from Los Angeles, CA and have lived in the Boston Metro area for the past 5 years. I have a huge interest in world cultures,learning new languages, DIY arts and crafts, technology, reading, and expressive arts.

Philosophy on Childcare:  In my opinion, the last thing you should ever do with a child is "sit".  Children (even babies and teens) were meant to be dynamic, explore, and do everything BUT stay still.  I believe in getting "down and dirty" with kids and exploring their imagination along with my own. It is also of utmost importance for me to work with families to incorporate feedback and cultural care practices. I practice a warm and authoritative care giving approach that can be child-led when appropriate. I constantly read parenting blogs, trade magazines, and other sources of information to stay up to date on everything.

Qualifications and Special Skill Sets:
- CPR and First Aid Certified
- CORI Certified
- Bi-lingual English / Spanish
- MA EEC Infant/Toddler and Pre-School teacher Qualified (Met all legal work and education requirements to certify)
- Education: BA in Writing, Literature, and Publishing from Emerson College with a minor in Theater Arts
 
Professional Childcare Experience:
- Private babysitting since 2001
- Worked as a Infant / Toddler/ Pre-School Teacher at diverse environments such as: Children's Center of Brookline, Kindercare, Children's Hospital Boston, and Escuelita Boriken
-Worked in residential group Foster Care for teens for 5 years
- Experience working with special populations as Behavioral Therapist, Tutor, and Caregiver: ADHD, Autism, PDD, Trauma-informed Care, Foster-Youth, ESL, Emotional disorders

Thank you for reading my profile, I hope to hear from you soon!
