My name is Alexa, and I am currently taking a semester off from college to live in Salt Lake City and work, ski, hike, bike, and visit the various nearby national parks!
I am in search of employment from late January through May in Salt Lake City, preferably through a nannying job. I have been babysitting since I was about 13, and I love working with children! I have two younger sisters, so I have grown up caring for my siblings and have learned responsibility from a young age.
I am very attuned to children's needs and am adept at encouraging children to communicate effectively and develop self-awareness. I encourage positive development and growth through reading, play, communication and conflict management. I am First Aid and CPR certified and I have had training in infant/toddler care through a day care center at my high school. I have been a camp counselor for the past two years where I have worked with campers ages 5-15, leading them through team-building activities, art projects, and outdoor games. I have experience working with children with ADHD, ADD, down syndrome, autism spectrum disorders, diabetes, and anxiety disorders. Through my experience as a camp counselor, I have had training and practice in behavioral management.
In addition to my child-care skills, I pursue various creative outlets and strive to incorporate creative activities into my childcare. I am a musician and a photographer, and I love to read and write. I believe it is essential to foster children's natural creative tendencies and passions through art projects, music, reading, and storytelling. I am very active and engaged in the outdoors, and I also prioritize outdoor activity in my childcare.
In addition to childcare, I also offer housekeeping and violin lessons at an additional cost.
Please email me or give me a call to discuss opportunities. Thank you for your interest!
