I have been babysitting since the age of 13. I started out occasionally babysitting my little cousins and their friends. After graduating high school, i took care of a set of twin babies every weekend. They were about 3-4 months when i began and i stopped when they were about 1. At age 21, I began taking care of my 2 year old Godson while both his parents worked full time. I made sure to keep him on a daily schedule that included, reading time, writing practice, outside time and minimal time for tv and electronics. I provided care for him for about 2 years, then moved on to work in an early childhood facility. I have about 21 college credits in early childhood education from Schoolcraft College, but not a degree or certificate. I worked as and infant/toddler teacher for a couple years. I am currently working as the Read more lead toddler teacher at Tutor Time in Walled Lake and I have been there for over 3 1/2 years. I am also cpr/first aid trained for infants, toddlers and adults. I enjoy doing crafts, messy projects, painting with objects out of the ordinary and exploring the world out of the eyes of children. I love singing songs, dancing, baby yoga is pretty cool too! I like to try a lot of activities/projects that I see on Pinterest, also! I That’s always fun. I love to have fun while still being able to teach AND learn something at the same time. We can all learn from each other, no matter how old! 😊
