Kristen’s Bio

Hi, my name is Kristen. I am a Preschool Teacher at Harrisville Children's Center and am looking for the occasional sitting job, or hopefully a regular afterschool position. I have worked with children whose ages range from infancy to 15 years old. Honestly, I find joy and challenges with all ages, as I am sure all parents do as well!

I have been a nanny for a number of different families, and each time I find that I have a never ending capacity to love, explore and learn with their children. The ages of the children I have babysat varies. My first job I started when their little girl was just about 6 months old and I stayed working closely with them until she was 3 and started going to the nonprofit preschool I worked at part-time. Another family I worked with, their oldest child was 10, their middle 7, and youngest 2. I was able to find activities that all children could enjoy and were age appropriate for all on some level. I was also lucky enough to tutor the oldest child on his spelling and reading, and really loved it!

For the past decade, I have been an infant, toddler, preschool and prekindergarten teacher, as well as a Program Manager for an afterschool program with over 50 students. I let the child guide our play and exploration activities, running the gamut of making our own Play-doh to hiking through trails and going along with their exploration of their surroundings. I believe that the more you can explore with a child, the more curious they become about touch, motor activity and language. I have also been a reading and math enrichment specialist, working with prekindergarten and kindergarten children. I am a huge believer in playing outside, enjoying nature and being very active. I have experience with various transitions such as feeding schedules, sleep training, potty training, learning to crawl, walk and run. I am very comfortable watching one child or three, as well as diving into homework help. I have the ability to be "on" for all ages and believe that it is incredibly important to really be with the child, help them develop at their pace, be responsible and have fun with them.

I am CPR and First Aid certified!
