I have been caring for children professionally, on and off, since I was 12. I currently teach art through a few local park districts and am trying to fill in the rest of my schedule with something I enjoy :) I've worked with kids of all ages, and am looking for either a part-time nanny gig, or to take on a housekeeping/organization job. I'm also always looking for clients who might want an English tutor or private art instruction for their child. Summer is the best time to explore new things so that when school starts back up, you'll know better what kind of things to sign the kid up for!
As far as my own philosophy with childcare and housekeeping/organization go, it's quite simple: I'm there to make your life easier, and to do what needs to be done to the best of my ability while still having fun. And because I'm quirky, I think organizing your pantry while putting on a puppet show with your kids is a great way to spend the day. I love cooking with kids, doing arts & crafts, science experiments, and involving them in household chores so that they can gain a sense of responsibility and feel accomplished - and they love to help! I'm something of a Jill of all trades, so if there's anything else you might want help with a few hours a week, I'm the one to do it! Face painting for a birthday party, unpacking boxes after a move, dog sitting, you name it. :)
My summer schedule is as follows:
Mon: Free after 1:30 p.m.
Tue: Free 11:30 a.m. - 4:30pm, again after 7 p.m.
Wed: Free after 11:30 a.m.
Thu: Free 11:30 a.m. - 4:30pm, again after 7 p.m.
Thank you for your consideration, I wish you the best of luck in finding the right caregiver/helper for your family!
