Avg response < 24 hrs
I am a college graduate with a degree in psychology who plans to go back to school to acquire a degree in child development (I minored in Early Childhood development, but am thinking about returning to school to pursue something in education or special needs therapies).
I started doing a mother's helper job at the age of 13 and since then have worked with many families long term (2+ years). I also have experience working at a Montessori preschool as well as being a camp leader and a lifeguard who taught swim lessons.
I have experience with children with autism and children with ADD/ADHD.
Most of my childcare experience is with children under 7 years of age.
I am a very engaging sitter who believes that while playtime is important, it never hurts to make games an enriching or educational experience. I am relatively laid back, easy-going, and playful, but have no problems enforcing the rules set down by parents. Light housework doesn't bother me at all, as I feel I am here not only to care for the children, but also lend a helping hand as needed. I am punctual, reliable, and very organized.
I love pets and am an avid fan of both reading and arts and crafts. I do enjoy movies (I have every children's movie just about memorized), but I'd much rather play, explore, and learn than sit in front of a screen all day.
I am currently interested in both part time and full time positions in Sunnyvale and surrounding areas. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you think I'm a good fit for what you're looking for.
