Hello Families! I am 26 years old in my final two quarters for my AA in Early Education, and a stay at home mother with a 2.5-year-old boy. I am looking to watch children in my home, but I am flexible coming to the family's home given I feel it is a safe and comfortable environment and bring my son with me.
I love to create age appropriate activities, build lasting partnerships with the parents, and believe in gentle discipline that relies on communication, redirection, and natural/logical consequences.
I have worked in Early Childhood field since 2006 as an assistant and substitute teacher, but most of my experience in the field has been as a nanny for infants and toddlers. During my time as a nanny I watched twins, siblings, and did nanny shares so I am comfortable with varying age groups, as well as multiples.
My passion is genuine and started at a young age as I grew up in family home childcare center that I eventually worked for. I knew I loved kids, but wanted the education to back up my passion and it has really been a great experience, and I love learning about child development. In addition I have taken classes on advanced curriculum, creating environments, and parent-teacher relationships.
Now that I am a parent myself, I think I offer another unique quality to care. I fully understand the love a parent has for a child, and it pushes me to be better understanding of family needs and expectations. In my care safety will always be the top priority, but it will be a safe environment that is full of love, nurturing, and stimulating learning experiences that create positive impacts on a child's development and self esteem.
I am available to answer questions via phone, email, or in person. Please feel free to contact me with any other questions. I look forward to hearing from you and I thank you for your time and consideration.
