Hello! I am 26 years old and I absolutely love kids.
If I was able, I would go back to school and become either an elementary education teacher or run a preschool of my own. However, this is the closest avenue to which I can pursue what I love.
Ever since the early age of 13, when I was old enough to take the babysitter's course, I have had several jobs: working as a mother's aid, providing date night care, providing both part and full time, working with special needs children, as well as being the nursery coordinator in my church: watching 6-14+ kids at a time with only one other adult helper. In the mix I have been married and have had two beautiful children of my own. Most often this turns people away, but please read on.
Given my experience, as a mother myself and one who has previously worked full-time entrusting my kids in someone else's care, I think I just might be what you're looking for.
I'm the type of person to, even if you don't have housekeeping listed as a desire, make sure the house is cleaner then how you left it that morning. I know how significant the "small" things seem after the demands of a busy day.
Every night, if this is an interest of yours, you will receive a daily report sheet that I have created myself for any child under 3. This will let you know exactly has happened while you were away. What he/she ate and how much, how they were feeling and what we did for fun or learned that day.
No matter the age we will have adventures, laugh and make memories. I love sports of all kinds and I enjoy being outside with them. Some of my favorite "past times" with kids are going on scavenger hunts, chasing them around and joining in with them when they want to jump in a big puddle. I thrive in a structured environment but value the importance of "free-play" and I encourage it when I can. I love art's and crafts of all kinds and am always interested to see what we can make/build together.
I will provide top care for your kids, good communication as it is a must, and a listening ear to always be open to bettering my services to you. I am available for date nights if you should need them and would be flexible to whatever your needs would be each week.
Please consider messaging me if you're interested and I would be happy to meet and talk more.
Thank you for your time!
