I can say confidently that I know the ages of children I most enjoy because I have worked with children all my life in homes, daycare centers and preschools as well as my own home; I have participated in raising 34 children including babies as a mom, nanny, home provider, stepmother and foster mother. My 60+ workshops and college courses in early childhood education have given me the background to track children's milestones and create activities which stimulate them to their next levels of development by engaging, enriching and stimulating them to learn, sing, think, and love books. I am seeking a family who is interested in a long-term relationship. My references will verify that I am warm, reliable and loving, as well as creative in my activities with children and ever mindful of current and emergent milestones. I am a good driver with a reliable car, a non-smoker, I am certified in CPR and Children's First Aid and I am comfortable with pets if you have any. If you are interested in baby sign, I can teach it to your children and you. I am a good driver with a reliable car, a non-smoker, certified in CPR and Children 's First Aid and comfortable with pets if you have any. Does this sound like a good fit to you? I would be happy to share my resume, educational background, references and fingerprint, local, state and federal background checks to you. Looking forward to talking with you.
