*I reside in Hyde Park on the Pleasant Valley, Town of Poughkeepsie border line. I have a boy and girl - who are grown up and now have their own homes. * In addition to one on one child care I have worked in nursery schools/camps and in the past have been in charge of many children. *During the 2013-14 school year I completed a short-term program commitment as a supervisor for 10 special-ed students ranging from 3rd - 5th grade in a Hyde Park after school literacy/activity program. We worked on literacy, homework and did special and varied indoor and outdoor activities and projects. *In the past, I have instructed gym and swim classes for children under 5 years and a water babies course (6-months-old to 1-year-old swimming classes) for the YMCA. I am educated in human and positive youth development and youth leadership by Cornell Cooperative Extension DC Read more and the Y - both were for jobs I held with the them. *In the past I have provided periodic respite care in Clinton Corners for a family with an eleven year old girl who had two 9 year old twin brothers, approximately twice monthly for three years through a non-profit in that hires direct care workers for those with autism or special needs. *For the past 4 years I have had the pleasure of caring for a twin girls, now 7 years old at their summer home in Millbrook a few days a week - picking them up and driving them home from summer camps and tending to them through bedtime, I also care for them on date nights throughout the year in Millbrook and at their Manhattan residence over night when parents vacation. *For the past 4 years I have cared for a girl and boy, 9 and 11 respectively, after school in Hyde Park when their parents work late. I also drive them to and from activities. Glowing references available. *I am mature and sensible and capable of making decisions. *I drive and always have new and dependable transportation. *I prepare light meals and do light chores. *When caring for children I try to work with them on an educational level, without their being aware of it so everything is a fun learning opportunity. *I love pets, reading and playing games, indoor and out. I do not smoke or have any bad habits whatsoever -- except for chocolate. As stated, I can provide references. *Due to privacy issues I will provide my specific information and that of my employers when I am sure of the employment offer. *Should you have any questions please feel free to ask.
