I have been working with children for as long as I can remember. I also volunteered as a camp counselor for the Girl Scouts of America day camp. I have met many wonderful families through the 20 some years that I have been employed, many of whom have stayed close friends. It gives me great pride when I help a child learn something new or made a parent's day easier knowing everything is done and their child or children are being taken care of without worry. I have experience with children of all ages and also children of special needs. I've had picnics in the yard, tea parties in the living room, walks to the parks, arts and crafts in the kitchen, which is a lot more fun then sitting in front of the TV. Also, I find both parents & children enjoy when I take pictures & videos then send so they see what we've been doing throughout the day. I have great references and come highly recommended.
