Experienced Babysitter Offering In Home Child Care
From the time I was 14 up until now I've always watched and cared for children. Now I am almost 25 and I have my first child - I can truly see how very important and special that bond between a parent and their child is. I am now choosing to work less and value every day I get to spend with her. Life is too short. I am either willing to open up my home to others who want their child/children to have a one on one experience or come to your home! I will be bringing my baby with me if of course that's OK with you! A little about myself, As stated above I started watching children at the age of 14. I cared for 3 young boys- at the time 5, 3 and barely 3 months. I was a live in nanny for the children and did various household chores and tasks required or asked of me. I watched the boys for several summers and once school was reinstated I focused on that, watching the boys only on weekends. I enjoyed every single minute of it and it showed me at a young age just how much I truly loved children. I went to college for early education and immediately afterwards started working at a private, Christian based academy. Upon first starting I was working in the nursery with the babies for several months. I was moved to the preschool class (position I initially applied for) and worked there for nearly 2 years. There I supervised children, made lesson plans, led the class in daily activities and lessons, taught children colors, numbers, counting and motor skills. I am extremely excited for the opportunity to watch your children if given the chance. I am not opposed to a daycare facility however having worked at one I know how many children come through those doors and how hard it is to give each individual your undivided attention. That's why I couldn't let my newborn be subjected to being put in a swing or car seat the majority of the day because the nursery had 5 babies. One newborn is already a full-time job, let alone 5. That's where I want to be the difference. I want to watch only a few children at a time to ensure they have my full attention, support and love.
