Hi, my name is Marissa Hamden I am 22 years old, and I have worked 2 nearly three years as a daycare assistant. I am taking a year of f before getting a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Development, because I would like to get more experience with kids. Some of the things I like to do is baking desserts from scratch, I like reading all kinds of books, swimming in our pool, and spending time with my family, and trying to find new craft ideas to do at work and with my niece and nephew and teaching them how to bake.The reason why I enjoy taking care of kids so much is because of my older sister, she has two kids Alexis who is 6 years old and in first grade and Mikey who is 4 years old and will be in kindergarten next year, it was my job Read more to take care of them while she was at work and at school, so I have been helping take care of them since they were born. The reason I want to work with kids that I just enjoy being around them, I love thinking of projects for us to do, planning our day, helping them learn, and playing with them. In the future I would like to own my own daycare. I am CPR, First Aid, AED Certified, I am also Bloodborne Pathogen Certified and Infant Safe Sleep certified. I am currently taking ECU's classes for Infant Toddler Care, Potty Training, taming Temper Tantrums, Nutrition For young children, Separation Anxiety, and Fun and Fitness: Addressing Childhood Obesity. The daycare I worked at had children ranging from 1 month to 7 years old. I was in charge of helping with breakfast, feeding the babies, making their bottles, changing diapers, cleaning up after them, making sure everything has been disinfected, playing with them, thinking of fun projects and learning activities, making sure they washed their hands, getting them ready for nap and watching them during nap-time, getting snack ready, waking them up, and getting them ready to go home. Also for an hour a day we would sit down and read books, do worksheets like about the ABC's and numbers and colors, using flashcards to learn our shapes and colors, we would also sing songs and learned to follow directions. Some of the things I love most about taking care of children is helping them learn, playing games with them, and just listening to them talk ( even if I can't understand what they are saying), and their energy is very infectious. Sincerely, Marissa Hamden
