Meet Kendra

  • Comfortable with pets

I am currently a student at Calvin College, majoring in elementary education. I have worked with kids since I was 15. I have babysat a family daily with three children for five years now. Age range from 6-16 (with special needs). I provide reliable transportation, incorporate physical activities into play, will cook and clean as needed, and provide overall fun for children of all ages! I currently babysit sometimes on weekends, but am in search for a new family to work for during the week. I am very flexible and understanding with last minute conflicts. In addition to nannying for five years, I am also a church school teacher for 3-year-olds. I also do daycare for infants–2-year olds on the weekends. These jobs have thought me how to manage many children at once and how to incorporate learning into fun activities. I am very exited to work this summer to Read more apply the skills that I have learned in my education and child development classes that I have been taking at Calvin!
