Ashley’s Bio

I am a college student at The New School and I have been baby sitting for over ten years.  In high school I volunteered at the Boys & Girls Club and decided I wanted to volunteer even more with children, which led me to work for two years at an orphanage in Tanzania, East Africa for thirty-five children ages 0-5. The experience has given me great skills. It's taught me to work hard, adjust to new and different situations, be flexible, work creatively with what resources I have and most importantly always be kind and compassionate. At the orphanage I fed, bathed, dressed, changed diapers, played and generally took care of the kids from morning until bed time. I also helped to institute a daily pre-school where the kids learned basic numbers and letters, as well as songs, art projects and games. When I returned to the United States in 2009 I worked from March until June at a daycare in Portland Oregon with children aged 6 months to 5 years. The skills I developed in Africa made it an easy transition for me into the daycare. I was able to help teach pre-school alongside the other duties of cooking, cleaning, changing diapers and leading activities with the children.
I sincerely believe that all children deserve to be cared for in a safe environment where their personalities and creativity can be nurtured and helped to develop successfully. I'm easygoing yet responsible and safety-oriented. I have a genuine love of kids which at the end of the day might be the most important part of being a good nanny or sitter!
