Jenny’s Bio

Hello! I am a nursing student at St. Vincent's College with one year of study remaining. I am extremely confident in my child care capabilities and you will have the utmost confidence that you are leaving your children in the best possible care. To find out more about me, keep reading! (5.26.2010)
(Jan. 2010) My most recent experience has been as a nanny for two children for two years, now 2 1/2 and almost 4, who entered preschool in September. This worked out well for me so that I could focus on nursing courses. I remain in touch with the family and visit the children as much as I can. I am extremely responsible, reliable (I have called out sick only once in two years), patient, flexible, fun, and activity-oriented. I am very easy going, yet structured at the same time, and understand children well. I understand the capabilities and limitations of each age group, as well as every child's need for independence and to make their own choices (they need to learn they CAN change their environment, or else they will learn to be apathetic and will not try to succeed in life) but at the same time I am somewhat stern (for example "No, not right now, maybe next time" followed by an explanation of "why not" really does mean no.) I like to spoil the children with love just for being who they are and praise them for effort put into play (like building a tower) or academic work or an art project or sports skill. 
As far as formal education, I have been going to college since I graduated in 2004. I have taken several early childhoood education and psychology courses in addition to my current nursing curriculum.
I love to be a part of a child's growth and development. There is nothing more satisfying then to help a child conquer language, develop a motor skill, or solve a math problem.
I would describe myself as a dedicated, honest, intelligent, and fun person!
(July 2007) For the past year I have been working at a wonderful daycare in Milford as the Lead Teacher of a two-year-old classroom. As Lead Teacher, I am fully responsible for the safety and development of the eight children in my care. I also write weekly lesson plans that include various science, math, music and movement, motor skills, and language & literacy activities. I must say that my two-year-olds are extremely empathetic, well-behaved, intelligent, and unique individuals! I also babysit for a few families with children ranging from 2 months to 9 years.
