I am offering an in home daycare setting for 1 or 2 additional children. I already have 3 children of my own (ages 1, 5, and 8). We live in a nice house in the Bon Air area. We have a large fenced in backyard with a playground. I have a bachelor's degree in psychology from VCU. I have spent the last 8 years working with children and teens profoundly impacted with autism spectrum disorders. I have 4 years experience working as an in home counselor to families with special needs children facing various challenges and implementing behavior plans. I have an additional 4 years working in a classroom setting as I am currently employed as a teaching assistant at the Faison Center for Autism. I currently work in a classroom with students diagnosed with autism displaying varying levels of challenging behaviors who are unable to attend public school and need more one on one support. I have immensely enjoyed working in this field and helping families and children in this population achieve goals and grow in so many countless ways. I am however torn because working full time outside of my home with 3 small children for so many years is very difficult and I am wanting to find more balance between my professional life and family life hence why I would very much like to watch children in my own home and also enjoy more time with my own kids while still helping other children grow. I have countless years of experience as both an educator, mentor, and of course child advocate, not to mention parent to my own 3 children. At the school I currently work at for the last 4 years I often lead yoga groups and art project sessions. I am also very well acquainted in helping students academically as well if needed and have extensive training in applied behavior analysis techniques and positive reinforcement and redirection behavior strategies.We live across the street from an elementary school and I plan on walking my kids to school in the morning so for anyone in the immediate area needing before and/or after school for a child attending this school would be optimal.In this case I would charge $75 per week. And of course I could cover snow days or school closures as well. I am comfortable caring for children of all or any age and am fortunate enough to still have toys for older kids and also lots of baby equipment for use. I have officially put in my 2 weeks notice at my current teaching job and will be looking to accept 1 or 2 kids August 5. Any other questions feel free to ask!
