Amanda’s Bio

I am a stay at home mom looking to watch, play with and teach your child in my home for the summer.
Let me tell you a little about myself, I have a degree in art and currently working on pursuing another in biology. I have a daughter who will be three in November. I am looking to care for your child(ren) at my house, so that I may also watch my own daughter. The socializing would be wonderful for my daughter as well as your children too! If you'd be willing to bring them to my home I have plenty of toys. I'm also prepared in my home for cooking meals and snacks as well. I am very flexible with the hours. We are a non-smoking family with a clean house and I have a reliable SUV (with insurance/registration) to transport if needed or if allowed. (Such as zoo trips or to bring them back home to you.) We do have two medium sized dogs who are very well trained and love kids. I have a playground next to my house and also a yard. We love being outdoors enjoying nature and going on walks! I love to do crafts, building with legos, reading books, play games and doing flash cards. As far as meal preparations, I have no problem with making nutritionally balanced meals if needed. I cook as clean and healthy as I can, I don't feed junk food or too many sugary/HFCS items. I try to incorporate as many organic products/produce into my meals as well as lean beefs, ground turkey and whole wheat. I also love making homemade things like all natural fruit roll ups, and fruit pops. If your kids have special food needs I am experienced in that as my daughter had special dietary needs when she was little. I am also currently working on getting my CPR/ first aid certification. I have previously babysat a boy from the age of newborn up until he was 5 prior to attending college. I am honest, clean friendly and reliable. When it comes to disciplining children I do insist that they understand that mom and dad' s rules do still apply when they' re coming from me and in my home. That way there is a constant structure for them to grow and learn! So, if you think I would be a good match then please feel free to contact me and we can further discuss more details or if you have any questions/concerns. Thank you, for your time.
