Loving, Nurturing and Growing Together! My Adventures in Child Care Giving

Responds within a few days
At the age of 15 I began my journey working with children. It began with a family who had twins, 2 months old, and a 1-year-old girl for two years. I became very close to the family and grew to love working with infants and toddlers. I also worked for another family with a 1-year-old and a 3-year-old for one year. As I started UCSC with a major in Psychology, I took my interest and joy in working with children and chose to explore classes on infant and child development. In this environment I learned new ways of understanding the progression of an infant to child. Throughout my college career, I worked at two separate after school programs, one for a year, and another for a full summer. As the sole teacher for 8-14 children at one of the after school programs I worked hard to create a rich, stimulating and safe environment, and learned that every child needs a different approach or style to become engaged. At the other program I learned the power of stability, discipline and continuity and the power of enabling children to communicate with one another in conflict. As a college graduate, I took care of two boys, age 6 and 10, engaging them in projects, where we explored the wonders of the Haiku, traversed the glory of nature through National Geographic videos and explored local parks and museums. Following this work, I moved to San Francisco, where I became the nanny for an incredible little girl (age 1 1/2). I worked with her for almost a 1 year and a half, and have been completely transfixed watching her grow and evolve into a walking, talking, singing, dancing expressionistic little wonder. We have painted, sung, danced to ballet, and laughed together. Following this year and a half of growth and learning, I began working for two other families. The first family I worked with a 2-month-old, and a 3-year-old. I took care of him for over 6 months, long enough to really experience the profound changes that occur during infant development, I also learned how to juggle caring for an infant and their older sibling. How to balance two beings quite different needs. While working with the 9-month-old over the last year, I have learned about taking first steps, playing drums, singing songs, and exploring nature, examining, trees and roots and flowers, and playing outdoors. I adore the continual learning and growth involved with working with children and value the reciprocation of learning, loving and bonding that occurs with this work.
