Hello, my name is Danielle. I am 22 years old and I a graduate of Regent University, as of May 9. I love caring for and teaching young children because I am able to see each child's personality grow and develop over the passing days and weeks. I get to experience and be a part of the love and joy that children bring into the world. I have cared for many children ranging from newborn to 12 years old for over the past 10+ years. I began by helping to care for my younger sister and an in-home child care program that my mom was running at the time. Later, around the age of 12, I began babysitting and receiving money, caring for children in my home and theirs. I have cared for infants overnight before; putting them to bed, giving baths and getting up in the middle of the night to care for them. I have also cared for special needs children, particularly Cerebral Palsy, Cancer, ADD/ADHD and Autism Spectrum. I know how to care for children with feeding tubes. One of my previous employments was for a family with 5 children, ranging in age from 2-8; this experience has taught me how to deal and cope with multiple children at once. I have learned how to teach 5 children who are on different levels of development and how to care for each of them personally while still including the other children. I try to provide an environment which is not only educational, but fun as well. I take activities that they enjoy doing and show them educational values in each; such as cooking, crafts and even video games. I show them new activities that they would enjoy and learn from. I go above and beyond simply being the babysitter; I clean the home, sweep floors, vacuum, take care of animals and provide meals for the children. I try and keep electronics to a minimum when I care for children; I prefer activities that are more stimulating and provide interaction and development in social skills. Usually, I only allow 30 minutes to an hour of television or video games, after that it is time for games, crafts and social interaction. I like to give the children fair warning before switching activities, this way they are not caught off guard by the change. Thank you for your time. I appreciate that you took the time to read through my profile and hope to hear from you soon.
