Full-Time Child Caregiver Available
My name is Sarah and I am 22 years old. I am a very spunky, fun, loving, and energetic girl who is a large fan of outdoors and art. I have grown up on arts and crafts with my extremely artistic family, and I adore/have always adored working with children. I grew up babysitting starting at age 16 and now care for my 10-year-old nephew often. During my senior year in high school, I got the opportunity to go and participate in being a teachers assistant for kindergarten through second grade. I currently work at a fantastic day care and work with all ages up to 10 years old, but mainly I work full time with 1 1/2 - 2-year-old children. My main duties throughout the day consist of teaching the kids letters of the alphabets, colors, shapes, numbers, different animals/animal sounds, and to make sure the kids are busy and active, while also enjoying their day away from their parents. There is a different theme every week that I base my lesson plans on, and by these lesson plans, we go over mathematics, art, motor skills, science, and language arts. Drop off and pick-ups are also a big part of my job seeing as that is when the communication with the parents come to play. Drop offs are sometimes difficult with the separating, so I am there to give the children TLC and help calm them down. I also have that time to tell the parents about what their children accomplished through the day and what we are working on in the room. I have my own transportation and am very pet friendly. I also very much enjoy all outdoor activities and feel as if children should at least be outside an hour or more a day. Children take lots of patience and understanding, which I handle very well. Patients and understanding are key skills to have. Children are just like everyone else and learn more and more everyday and look up to their teachers for that help. A teacher who can understand that will be a huge influence on the children they care for as well as the parents.
