Iris’s Bio

I am a full-time student at Montclair State University, and I currently commute. I live in Bloomfield, NJ. I started baby sitting at age 13, for some daisy and brownie Girl Scouts.
I have a car, and I am working on getting a car seat. In the summer I like going to the town pool and parks with the children that I sit. I am lifeguard certified and I have been on a swim team for 9 years of my life. I am a very strong swimmer, and I always keep a watchful eye on the children (I also never let the child swim alone).
In the park I always stay a maximum of about 5 feet away, so the children can play without feeling suffocated but I need to know they are safe. When I am out, I always either hold children's hands or take them in the stroller.
I never go anywhere without parental permission first.
This past summer and school year I have worked with two different families that each have a child with special behavioral needs. I have been really patient and understanding with their children. From this experience, and growing up with a brother that has behavioral needs, I know how to deal with these types of children. I am not afraid to follow the house rules, and say no but I am also want the children to have fun, and have an enjoyable experience with a sitter. I always try to find something that they like to do.
Three summers ago, I had the opportunity to help a nanny watch an infant and two toddlers. Four and Five summers ago, I watched a child with aspergers. We played a lot of games, and I helped him with his summer assignments. I've had experience with a lot of different types of children, and I am confident I can watch your children.
I don't have a background check because I think getting one done online doesn't feel safe. It feels like a scam and I don't want my personal information getting transfered through the web, to have my identity stolen. I know this sounds like a ridiculous worry, but I have references instead. (I am completely willing for any parent to request and get a background check from a secure company.)
