Samantha’s Bio

I am a positive and fun-loving but firm, child care provider. I believe in positive reinforcement and in bringing uplifting perspectives to stressful situations. While I am currently a graphic designer, I have a degree in Psychology and would like to transition to a child-care related career (possibly art therapy) because I want to spend more of my time working with my favorite clientele...kids! I absolutely love kids and it seems that kids love me as well. I started babysitting when I was 11 and have watched kids from as young as 6 months old to pre-teens and am comfortable with children of all ages.

I believe in setting simple rules, guidelines and achievable goals so that children know exactly what is expected of them, and build self esteem as they meet those expectations. I also believe in teaching coping skills whenever possible, to help kids prepare for the curve balls life may throw at them in the future. This can involve learning new and more positive perspectives, ways to handle stressful situations, how to deal with feeling sad, or how to communicate these feelings.

My experience includes working for a babysitting agency for the local high-end resorts on the Big Island of Hawaii, and I was often called back to the same families because they were very happy with my services.

I look forward to new challenges and opportunities and hope you will consider me for your babysitting and childcare needs. Thank you!
