Caring Sitter Who Loves Outdoor Summer Activities. Extremely Creative And Loves Crafts. Loves Laughs

Hi my name is Allyssa. I have been in a preschool and/or kindergarten classroom for the past 5 years. This past year I was also in a second grade classroom. I am studying educating young children at Elmhurst college. I will be starting the education program in the fall. I can be full time until September 1st. Prior to covid 19 and social distancing I was babysitting a 6-month-old from January-March. While I have more experience with young children, I am open to looking after slightly older children. I love to spend time outside, playing in water, doing crafts, going on walks/bike rides, and everything in between. I was a life guard for year and taught swimming lessons to children aged 1-6 years old. I am very handy in the kitchen and can cook anything your children prefer. Since I am studying to be a teacher, I can help with homework, improving academic skills, and creating activities centered around learning in fun, creative ways. I also have a criminal background check.

Allyssa's always had a love for children and this shows in how she stays in the present and gives her full attention. Children seem to notice this in her and gravitate toward Allyssa. Even shy children have opened up to her, as she is patient with them until she earns their trust. Allyssa is also creative and imaginative with play and activities. Her energy level when she is around children accelerates. She's always making sure activities are interesting and safe. She has told me many times about the experiences she had with sitters, group leaders and teachers that made an imprint bold enough on her to decide she would become an early childhood educator when she was in elementary school. She is confident, able to maintain composure and patient. When she worked for the park district teaching swimming to toddlers and older children, she learned how to help children overcome fear and lead them to success. She continues honing this skill in college.
