Single mother of an active kindergartner looking for reliable long-term Afterschool after care. I am a nurse practitioner who works 12 hr shifts with a schedule that varies week to week. J is an almost 6yr old little boy with a lot of energy, a great imagination and a picky diet! He is in an afterschool program in town that requires pick up by 6p, then he needs dinner and a tub and to get him into bed (not necessarily asleep) by the time I get home. No homework required, meals are easy because he pretty much lives on chicken nuggets :) and veggies. Must be ok with animals- 2 pugs, a mini pig and Guinea pig in the house. I would really love a longer term commitment as it's easier on J. Can't wait to hear from you!
I am trying to instill basic "good human" values in J- be kind to others, be honest, etc. I also want him to know that everyone makes mistakes, mistakes are ok, it's how we learn.
J is currently obsessed with all things Star Wars... and lobsters (no idea where that came from). He is incredibly creative, very verbal, and very sensitive. He enjoys drawing, building with Legos, being read to and watching lobster videos.
J has trouble feeling frustrated and often needs help to express his feelings.
Someone with patience and experience with school aged kids. And must like animals!
Buses run right near my house and you can park right in my driveway.
Naomi & Toby (pugs)
Teddy (mini pig)
Ramona, Beverly & Penny (Guinea pigs)
Bee (bearded dragon)
