I absolutely adore children and have taken care of kids for as long as I can remember.
I have worked with all kinds of children, infants and pets alike. I have cared for children of all ages with disabilities including autism, cerebral palsy, ADHD, etc...
I am light hearted and energetic but I know when to be serious. I am responsible and insightful, and can predict what is going to happen and what moods your children will be in before they even realize it! I am mature with values and morals. I am very attentive, patient and thoughtful.
I love being outside, hiking, running and the beach. I love to play and make kids laugh. I love to comfort them when they are sad and help them learn and grow. I do the whole nine yards, singing, reading, puppets, forts, playgrounds, museums, nature walks, arts and crafts, you name it!!
I am coming home from school for the summer on June 26 and will be going back in the fall. Until then, I'm all yours! I am obtaining my master's degree now in Occupational Therapy and have my bachelor's in Speech and Language Pathology and Communication Disorders.
I have great references as I have worked the past year as a speech therapy assistant and paraprofessional in a school for children with disabilities. I was a nanny for a wonderful family for the last eight years (I can't believe it's been that long!). Last summer I was a nanny for a 4 month old baby girl (7 months when I went back to school). I also have a clean driving record.
You need not have a thought in your mind while your precious children are with me, for they are in excellent hands. Your children's happiness and safety is of utmost importance and will be my #1 priority.
** *My profile notes that I am comfortable with 4 or more children---This depends on the ages of the children or if any have a disability.
