Child Care Provider

Avg response < 8 hrs
I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I have worked with children ranging in ages from infancy through 8th grade. I'm hardworking, creative, loving and very good with children. I am very dependable and believe in strong communication with the parents. As a nanny, my responsibilities included diapers, being breast milk friendly, help with potty training, dressing the children, feeding the children twice a day, providing age appropriate activities, carpool to preschool, outings such as the library and parks. I have great references. I also did laundry and light housekeeping. I have a lot of experience with infants. I am CPR certified and up to date on all of my vaccines.

Tracy is the ideal nanny! We hired her last August to watch our eight-month-old daughter, and she did a fantastic job for us for nearly a year. She is completely professional and dependable (never, ever late!) and extraordinarily loving. She spent hours and hours reading to our daughter, and did all sorts of other activities as well. She even would bring her food that she liked and buy her toys; she likewise would help out with our two older sons whenever they were sick and couldn't go to school, and she'd do things like fold our laundry (unasked!). She really became part of our family, and our daughter absolutely loved her. Our daughter's language skills grew by leaps and bounds under Tracy's care, which I attribute to all the reading that Tracy did. We've now had four nannies over the years, and Tracy has been hands-down the best. We would hire her again in a heartbeat, and she has our highest recommendation!

I highly recommend Ava. She has been sitting for our 2 boys for several years and she is a fantastic sitter. Our boys are always excited to see Ava. She is patient and kind, and she actually engages with the kids instead of just plopping them down in front of the TV. Ava is very trustworthy and dependable. We feel comfortable letting her drive the boys to practices, and we always know that she will be able to keep the kids under control (which can be hard with 2 boys close in age). She has never cancelled on us and she is always on time. She is also fantastic with our pets. We have a huge dog and a very old cat. Both pets love her just as much as we do!

At Kids International we believe children learn best not only by doing (i. e. hands on activities) but also by interacting and socializing with other children. Our curriculum is based on the Project Construct and Reggio Emilia approaches to early childhood education. These approaches allow children to explore their environment, learn through play and provide the opportunity to develop socially, emotionally, academically and physically.

Kids International is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). We are proud of this accreditation, as it requires maintaining high quality standards of child care, teacher's credentials, excellent facilities, family relations, and overall best practices in early childhood education. You can visit their website at to learn more about the benefits of having your child attend a school with the NAEYC accreditation.

At Kids International we believe it is important to allow children to explore nature. We are the only child care center in West County with a certified Nature Explore outdoor classroom.
