Grace’s Bio

Hi everyone! This fall I will be beginning classes at Northeastern University, in Boston. I already have my class schedule so I can provide families with availability immediately. I also know my academic calendar so I am aware of brakes already as well. I began working on childcare as early as 10 years old when I watched my neighbors for a couple hours at a time. Since then, I haven’t looked back. I have worked with children as young as six months All the way up to children my age who have different levels of special needs. I am comfortable with multiple children at a time, and as a requirement to graduate high school I became CPR certified. I turned 18 this past April, and I am also comfortable to tutor children while babysitting them. All throughout high school, I participated in a weekly tutoring program where I would give academic support to s students who lacked the support at home, and were most times living in poverty. Although I am applying to be paid for child care here, I do understand the importance of having a supportive care taker who holds children to a standard that makes them feel capable, yet pushed. I have my own car back in Minnesota, however I am comfortable driving in Boston or transporting kids on the train . I am active, and I’m the type of person who can thrive in situations of chaos. I play the cross for six years, and I also coach a miracle league baseball team for players with a range of cognitive or physical special needs. At the heart of it, I’ve stayed in childcare because I think it’s crucial for younger, impressionable generations have role models they can look up to. While I am active, and enjoy being creative, or “young-hearted”, I am organized. This is not to say I am not flexible, but as a mutual respect, I believe parents should hold me to the same organizational standard as themselves. I am willing to negotiate low rates for days to be “on call”. Let me know if you would like to chat more :)
