Avonlea’s Bio

Hi, my name is Avonlea McVicker. I am twenty years old.
I became a babysitter/nanny because I instinctively care for and love being around children of all ages. Being the second of nine children, I have always been around children and have had a lot of experience caring for their needs.
I started my first job when I was ten. I had the responsibility of feeding, dressing, picking up after, entertaining and disciplining two toddler girls. I still watch them occasionally. Since then I have had several jobs caring for children ages infant to preteen. I have never been fired. I have several references and phone numbers.
I am CPR and First Aid certified. I have experience with Autistic children as well.
I have a certificate for attending a class on the importance of reading with kids. I even have experience teaching children to read, since I had the privilege to teach my younger siblings this past school year.
I always interact with the kids I watch. I believe that kids are a blessing from God and should be treated as such.
I usually use time outs and ,according to age, take away privileges. But my first aim is to help the parents reach their goal for their children and will therefore handle discipline as the parents see fit, as long as it is legal and safe.
I will usually bring games and movies ( if its okay with parents ) crafts and books. I try to encourage kids to learn through fun. For example: one boy I had loved Indians. So we got a book just about them. He learned where they lived and made a tepee in his yard with sticks. He learned what they hunted and pretended to hunt those animals. He didn't even know he was doing 'school' ! I also bring cards and games that will help with education in some way or other. In the past I've brought flashcards of presidents and states and basic math and turned it into a game. I even used Uno to help a couple of preschoolers practice their colors and numbers. They loved it and would want to play it every day I came.
I am willing to help with homework but I prefer to only help with math and reading/spelling and history. I am willing to help with basic housework and picking up. If I were to do anything above basic housework I'd require more pay. I am also willing to prepare meals and snacks.
Willing to watch them in yours or mine home.
Pay is negotiable.

Avonlea

We had Avonlea handle the sitting duties for a couple months while our regular sitter was on a mission trip recently. She always showed up with a smile and a wonderful attitude. She was never preoccupied with her cell phone. The kids adored her. Even though never asked to do it, Avonlea always had the house picked up and dishes done when I got home. In the past 10 years we have had quite a few sitters and Avonlea was one of the best.
