Being the eldest child in my family with a sister and three brothers, my childcare experience started right at home early in my life. When I would be away from them even a couple of days, I would miss them too much. Then I knew myself how much I enjoyed being with them.
I started teaching kids right after I graduated my high school. Five years of teaching kids in a school even seemed too short for me. I never felt the pressure nor had a bad day with the kids.
I am also the mother of two girls, one is 7 and the other is 3. Raising them became always joyful. The feedback I am getting every day from any daughters teacher keep me happy. They appreciate the way my bigger daughter behaves, talks to people, or studies. I feel proud that I have been able to shape her behavior in the best way possible. As a mom, I have learned more about children's need at the moment and also their need for further development.
I have been working as a nanny for the last 9 years with both infants and toddlers. I talk to them and keep repeating until I feel they have learned what I said. Children are "copy cats". They copy your actions, the way you talk, and the words you speak. Got to be careful!
I keep differently colored toys for them to play with, alphabets and numbers put up on the walls for them to see and recognize and play some music rhymes to cheer them up. I also encourages some level of outdoor activities which will strengthen child's body.
I also give emphasis on "do" and "don't" and "yes" and "no" to teach them right from wrong.
I will be extremely happy to share my experience with many other kids.
I am also responsible for supervising children's safety, school work, nutrition, and recreation, as well as meal preparation and housekeeping including laundry, dishes, and cleaning. I am a great cook and I have my own car. Lastly, I hope to hear back from you,
Thank you so much!
