Experienced Babysitter Available to Suit Your Needs
I am an educated, compassionate, loving, trustworthy, outgoing, and thoughtful young woman. I am 23 years old and have over 7 years of experience working with children from birth throughout high school in many different environments. I have worked in day cares, after school programs, Sunday schools, preschools, summer camps, tutoring programs, and in elementary schools. I graduated with certification in Early Childhood Education from BOCES and have attended Buffalo State College for Early Childhood/ Childhood Education. I have references available upon request. I am creative, flexible, and can work with you to meet your needs. I can create lessons, activities for any age in any subject, plan trips and so on. I am willing to go lower for my hourly rates. Working with children has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. It was once said, "The soul is healed by being with children." and that is something I agree with 100%. I have always enjoyed spending time with children - it has revealed to me such an innocence and joy that is unlike anything else. While working with young children I have heard so many brilliant ideas come from the minds of 3-5-year-olds and saw such a love of learning that is beyond comparison. That was a flame that helped foster my love of working with children and ultimately teaching. There is such a joy that comes with helping a child solve a problem or showing them something that sparks an interest in them. They are the future and I believe it is important to show children they are loved and that they can move mountains with hard work. I believe babysitting is more than watching a child play or watch television, it is engaging the child and helping them grow as a person and intellectually. This is a subject I could go on and on about. Thank you for your interest and please message me with any and all questions. Have a wonderful day!
