Andi The Singing Nanny

Avg response < 16 hrs
I began babysitting at age 14 and continued my child development education through college. My passion for children in addition to my love for musical theater makes me uniquely qualified to nanny. Child Development: In 2016 I took a course titled Geology for Elementary School Teachers. Curriculum included teaching skills and lesson planning. In late 2016 I volunteered at Mott Children's Hospital where I assisted nurses and looked after children (newborn-12). I helped administer medication and soothed children dealing with trauma. Children in the Arts: At EMU I took a children's theater course which taught child development in relation to physical movement and expression of one's feelings. 2017-2020 I led 7 sing-alongs at the Michigan Theater as their official Emcee. This position included dressing up as a character from the featured movie and meeting children face to face. Additionally, I was a camp counselor at the Michigan Theater's Young Filmmakers Camp (ages 11-18).

Andi was great with my two young daughters. They LOVED her and I TRUSTED her completely! Andi is fun, creative, musical, kind, artistic, and incredibly patient. As a matter of fact, my eldest daughter once corrected me when I called her our "babysitter." She said, "No Mommy, Andi is my FRIEND." For those reasons and so much more, Andi would be a great asset to any household! Highly recommended!

Jacki M. began her dream of providing high-quality early childhood programs at the center s original location on North Maple Road. In 1984, the center moved to its current facility on South Maple Road that was designed and built to house our programs. The new building gave us the opportunity to expand the center s offerings to three full-day preschool classrooms, a half-day preschool program, and a new kindergarten program. In 2003, we renovated and further expanded our facilities with the addition of a new large motor/gym space, basement storage area, larger parking lot, and fourth full-day preschool classroom.

The family continues to own and operate The Discovery Center in collaboration with the administrative and teaching staff of the center.The mission of The Discovery Center is to provide a high-quality early childhood experience for young children. In order to achieve this, The Discovery Center strives to provide an environment where each child is able to approach optimum physical, social, emotional, aesthetic, and intellectual growth.

The program is enhanced by outside specialists who provide Spanish, music, and story telling enrichment activities.
Our curriculum has been developed by our staff of professional educators to be consistent with the center s philosophy. Some areas of the curriculum stressed by The Discovery Center are dramatic play, creative art, music, science and nature, math activities, stories and books, self-help skills, world awareness, communication skills, creative movement, social/emotional skills, and outdoor play.
