Nanny/Mama/Doula Offering Nurturing Care
I have cared for children for over 20 years in many different settings, primarily in-home as a nanny. I have worked mostly with infants and toddlers and preschoolers. I have taught preschool, as well as assisted in day care and school environments. I have also cared for many children in my own home.
I currently am homeschooling my 7-year-old son and care for children on an as needed basis and occasionally for overnight weekend care. I have worked as a church nursery provider, as an aide in elementary school classrooms, as a day care provider and assistant and at the Butte College Infant/Toddler program. As a DONA trained Doula I have also worked with mothers and infants as a Postpartum Doula and as a Mother's Helper. For several years I worked full-time as a private in-home nanny with responsibilities that included light housekeeping, laundry, meal prep and cooking, attending dance lessons, transportation to the doctor and other appointments, lots of outings to parks and other events for children, crafts, nature walks, and even preschool education with a home-based seasonal curriculum! I am very familiar with infant care and with both bottle and breast fed infants, baby wearing, preparing home made baby foods and such. I am always continuing my education in all areas of family life and childcare and have some certificates relating to family life and community in addition to loving childcare and connection based and positive parenting. I have 12 ECE units, am CPR certified and my vehicle is insured for another child and have a perfect DMV record. I genuinely love children of all ages and love playing and interacting with them and exploring the world from where they are at. My style is gentle but with years of experience I know how to provide a secure setting for children to feel safe in and grow.
