Meet Emmy

Hi there! My name is Hillary, but I go by Emmy. I have ten years of childcare experience. As a former preschool teacher, I also ran an after school care program for children ages five to ten, as well as an annual summer program. I am CPR certified, trained in first aid, and registered with Oregon's Central Background Registry. I believe patience, empathy and encouragement are paramount in childcare and are firsthand nature to me. Recently I finished up my fourth year as location manager at Little Explorers Preschool. As lead teacher I worked with students and designed an enriching, safe and fun schedule and format for the preschool, after school enrichment, and summer camp. Previously, I was a nanny for five years to children newborn to nine years. I had three primary families I worked for consecutively during those years, all of whom can provide wonderful reference. Before living Read more in the city, I was raised on a biodynamic, community oriented farm, and attended Waldorf school for my primary education. This early childhood experience helped foster my appreciation for nature, kindness and creativity. Currently, I am a global student studying early childhood development and psychology. A global student means my course at university is online allowing flexibility for my work schedule, and the benefit of active education in a related field. I would love the opportunity to get to know you and your family and see if we are the right fit!
