My experience caring for children started when I was 12 babysitting for the neighbor boy. Upon graduating from high school I provided care for 2 families in their home. Both of these families had school age children. My duties included getting children up in the morning, fed, dressed, and on and off school bus. I also provided light housekeeping for both of these families.
For 3 years I worked for Head Start as a teacher's aide. As a teacher's aide I assisted the teacher in lesson planning, supervised children, helped them wash hands and brush teeth, planned menus, prepared meals, and filled in for teacher during her absence.
For the previous 15 years I have been a licensed childcare provider in my home. I cared for all ages of children and am comfortable to continue doing so. As there were many children of one age group I can say that I have experience with multiples. There were also children with special needs enrolled at my daycare.
As I provided childcare in my home, I obtained countless hours of childcare related training from Penn State Better Kid Care program, a CDA (child development associate) certificate, first aid, CPR, fire safety, common illnesses in childcare, and some college credits in early childhood education. I participated in a state program to improve the quality of childcare.
The reason I started providing care in my home was to be at home with my own children. My youngest will soon graduate from college, so my goal has been accomplished. Being in the business for most of my life has been very rewarding and I can't imagine not continuing. This brings me to this site, looking for a nanny position.
I have been in a variety of childcare setting over the years and a low adult to child ratio is what I prefer because the children get better one on one attention. As a nanny I can focus on the needs of each child. My experience and dedication will be a benefit.
References are available and I also have my clearances.
