I would like to take care of, have fun with and positively contribute to the upbringing of children. Some of my best memories from my work life are of times I spent as a babysitter or nanny. I have cared for as many as four kids at a time, but usually have worked with families who have had three or fewer children. I'd be delighted to help with homework, cheer your child/ren on at sporting events, hike or play in a park, read to or with them, do crafts, take photos or videos of and with your kids and go on outings to libraries, museums, the aviary, a swimming pool and/or the zoo. I also love tennis and have patiently taught and played with kids. I am a non-smoker, college educated and I have my own transportation. While in college, I enjoyed my child development and psychology courses. My schedule is flexible. Therefore, I might be available at the last minute to provide childcare. I have a strong affinity for cultural experiences. While in college, for two summers I was a drama instructor at arts day camps. I also played the violin for eight and a half years. I would be an especially good fit for families who wish to foster creativity. I have a PA Criminal Background Check and PA Child Abuse clearances that I am happy to share with you. I will also provide a copy of my First Aid/CPR certification. Not only do I enjoy being with and caring for children, I also like animals very much. Additionally, I would be happy to help with dog walking, carpooling, errands, meal preparation and light housekeeping.
