As a mother, I understand that your family is important to you and you want to ensure that their care is provided by someone who values them as much as you do. My name is Laurel Popp and I am available to care for your children as a nanny or babysitter. Along with experience as a mother, I have experience as a nanny and babysitter and as a professional therapist.
I passed a criminal background check and continue to maintain my good standing with the state of Michigan in order to earn my license as a counselor. I would like to expand my income opportunities as your personal childcare provider.
I have been a babysitter since I was 10 years old and find it extremely fulfilling. From 1994-1996, I cared for a young sister and brother as their nanny. While preparing for my own family, I studied many articles and books about child care and development. Keeping current on these topics allows me to communicate well with parents, caregivers, and healthcare professionals regarding the children in my charge.
I have two sons, 9 and 11 years old. My first son suffered with asthma from birth to age 6 which was treated with the use of a nebulizer. He also suffers with social anxiety and Asperger-like symptoms which are currently well managed. I was a full-time mother from 2002 to 2008 and cared for other children as a babysitter from time to time. I also taught children’s classes. My favorite memories are of gathering children together for games and activities that are educational and fun!
I am confident in my ability to provide creative activities for many situations including quiet time, bed time, and meal time. I am also willing to perform light housekeeping duties so you can enjoy your time with your children. I believe in keeping children healthy, active, and learning. I own a car and have an impeccable driving record. I enjoy taking children on field trips (with your permission) and currently have memberships to the Detroit Zoo, Michigan Science Center, Cranbrook Science Center, and Detroit Institute of Arts.
I am excited to meet you and your family and learn how I can be of service to you.
