Caring, Creative, And Very Well Qualified
I have spent my entire life caring for children. My mother owned a child care facility for over 30 years, which I grew up in and eventually worked as a licensed assistant for. I have a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts and I am also a musician (guitar and piano), so I put a lot of emphasis on creative learning. Some activities I've done with children include: Arts and crafts, story time, poetry/rhyming, music time, nature walks (learning about flower/tree types), treasure hunts (using clues to find objects), and puzzle solving. I would be available for homework help/tutoring, including foreign languages (German, French, Spanish, Italian, Latin). I have over 15 years of experience caring for infants and toddlers. I have experience successfully clearing an infant's obstructed airway (choking). I am able to prepare meals, including healthy foods and vegetarian/vegan. I have experience as a part-time nanny, providing in-home care, transportation, meals, baths, etc. I am a huge animal lover and will take care of any pets as needed!
I am a licensed American Heart Association CPR & First Aid Instructor and teach these classes part time. Courses I teach include Pediatric First Aid/CPR, Blood borne Pathogens, and Medical Emergencies for Healthcare Providers. I have been an instructor at the same company for over 5 years. In addition, I work part- time for the American Academy of Pediatrics, implementing dental screening and care at pediatrician offices.
Please feel free to contact me regarding child care regardless of what my availability says- my hours are very flexible so I can work around your schedule!
