1. I truly love children & working with them, to bring out their best. I have a tendency to take care of everyone around me. 2. Enthusiastic and adventurous. The joy of childhood is priceless and I long to inspire children to explore, learn and try new things. 3. Fun. Silly. Laughter. Childhood should be about fun and fun inspires learning. I have an upbeat outlook on life. Planning fun ways to learn is always one of my goals for each day. 4. Nurturing. Caring. Connecting. Keeping each child safe while building a loving relationship & offering them a stable environment. I enjoy studying what each child likes and needs, and meeting their needs in a positive and appropriate manner. I like to build activities and outings around their interests. Engaging and stimulating them helps them learn and develop. I want to with one family for a long time so Read more I can provide a continuity of care of the children. 5. I have common sense, which I am told is not common. Many decisions come up every day about a child’s health, safety and well-being. Also situations come up in every household where prompt action can mean a much better outcome. 6. Punctual. Reliable.Trustworthy. I will protect your privacy. 7. Flexible. I do like consistent hours, but I will change my schedule as needed. Life happens and I never want the children to not have someone reliable and loving there for them. 8. Great communicator both in person and via writing, text, or email. I like to have a daily log handy to insure parents know what is going on with each of their children and so everyone is informed. 9. Educator. Everything can be a learning opportunity and I look for teachable moments. I also plan activities and hands-on learning tasks. I like doing mini unit studies, like theme weeks. I enjoy children's museums, zoos, parks, animal interactions, etc. I also like to cement learning, which means coming at something from many angles so something that is learned sticks, a.k.a. retained.
