Caring for children has always been my passion. I recognize it as a big responsibility, but also as one of the most rewarding things in the world. I am excited about getting involved in a young child's life again!
I especially enjoy the crucial first few years of a child's life and watching and helping them learn and discover new things. I have a natural love for teaching and one of my favorite things is to see a child's eyes light up with understanding.
Growing up with 2 handicapped little brothers also gives me experience and a soft place in my heart for special needs. I have spent a lot of time around children with a variety of special needs, and have experience caring for them and babysitting.
My previous paid experience started when I was about 16. I began caring part-time for a 3-month-old little girl and continued for about 2 years until her mother unfortunately was laid off work and she no longer needed someone to care for her.
I also cared for an 8-week-old premature little girl full-time and in the home for about 5 mo. It was my favorite job and it was hard to leave her when I moved to Philadelphia!
I would be happy to meet you and to provide references if you are interested!
