Sonia’s Bio

My experience caring for children began when I was 12 babysitting for the neighbor boy.  Upon graduating from high school, I provided care for 2 families in their home.  Both of these families had school age children. My duties included getting children up in the morning, fed, dressed, and on and off school bus. I did light housekeeping for both of these families. 
For 3 years, I worked for Head Start as a teacher's aide.  As a teacher's aide, I assisted the teacher in lesson planning, supervised children, helped them wash hands and brush teeth, planned menus, prepared meals, and filled in for teacher during her absence. 
For 15 years, I owned and operated a state licensed child day care in my home.  I cared for all ages of children and am comfortable to continue doing so.  As there were many children of one age group, I can say that I have experience with multiples. There were also children with special needs enrolled at my daycare.  
As I provided childcare in my home, I obtained countless hours of childcare related training from Penn State Better Kid Care program, a CDA (child development associate) certificate, first aid, CPR, fire safety, common illnesses in childcare, and some college credits in early childhood education.  I participated in a state program thats purpose was to improve quality of childcare.
When my daughter graduated high school and enrolled in college, I closed the day care and became a nanny. I cared for 2 school age girls for 2 years and infant twin boys for 4 years.
I have been in a variety of childcare settings over the years and a low adult to child ratio is what I prefer because the children get better one on one attention.  As a nanny, I can focus on the needs of each child.  My experience and dedication will be a benefit. I am organized, a self starter, and reliable.
