Energetic, Kind, and Experienced Babysitter!
I would like to make a positive impact on children, as my caregivers did for me. I have cared for children in my area on date nights, two boys, ages 3 and 5. I have also watched one girl since she was a toddler and she is now school-age. I have cared for my cousin since he was born. I have also cared for family friends' children who have three girls.
My past experiences were occasional care on nights or weekends and with longer term positions beginning last summer. Over the summer of 2013, I worked for two different families. For the first family, I cared for two children, one day a week. One of the children is a type one diabetic, and as her caregiver, I was responsible for monitoring and maintaining her blood glucose levels, meal preparation, and calculating the amount of insulin required for those meals. For the second family, I cared for one child, two days a week. She was 2 years old and I have loved maintaining a relationship with her and her family. I am returning to this position this summer, but would also like to supplement days with another family. With older children, I try to come up with age-appropriate weekly crafts, and with the younger ones, I focus on reading and more basic activities like coloring. I do my best to keep children away from the TV or other electronics. I feel it is my job to keep them entertained and interactive. I hope to meet your family soon!
