I've worked with all ages, and I am comfortable with larger groups. Aside from babysitting, I've worked in several literacy and "kindergarten prep" camps, as well as spending 1. 5 years as a toddler, 3's, and elementary-age teacher in a bilingual (English/Spanish) daycare. I was an Au pair in France and Denmark as well.
Most recently I was a household manager/nanny for a private household. My responsibilities included cleaning and scheduling maintenance for the house and vehicles, medical and veterinary appointments, grocery shopping and meal preparation, as well as caring for three young children.
I enjoy my work the most when I find ways to foster interest in the outdoors, creative play, art, storytelling and music in the children I'm caring for. Different activities appeal to different children, but every child benefits from some form of activity where they are supplying the ideas/content rather than being instructed (computer games, TV).
