I am 35 years old and I used to babysit as a teenager. In the last 10 years I have cared for elderly and young adults with special needs. I have a 6 year old daughter and a six-month-old son. Last year I worked for a care manager for upstate cerebral palsy serving adults with chronic health conditions are mental illnesses. I am currently a grad student at University at Albany for social work. I have extensive knowledge in the field of psychology and community health including childhood development, adverse childhood experiences, family violence, and numerous therapies that focus on the person and their strengths. I am interested in providing services to families and their children in my community because I have discovered the need for quality daycare. After spending half the summer with my daughter last year and having to debate now whether I want to send my children Read more to daycare or not, I have decided to take the time and see if having daycare services would be a realistic endeavor for me. I would love to watch your school aged child during the summer (I am seeking to fill two or three "slots"). I am caring and compassionate, crafty, I am health conscious, I have many years of experience in playing music (have some instruments) and dancing, love "science" projects, reading and teaching, I am a gardener, we have a big yard, and I am very active. I live just north of Rome, NY, have a minivan, so field trips are a possibility (I always purchase a Utica Zoo card, Lee Town Park, Jervis Library). I am not first aid/CPR certified, but have been and willing to get certified again. I am not registered with NYS, but have intentions of doing so and have communicated this with the New York State Office of Children and Family Services if there are perspective families who want my services; the process should be completed by June. I am willing to work with DSS and use the states recommended rates. I can provide my resume and references upon request. Pass background tests, etc.
