My earliest experience working with children was babysitting when I was a teenager, and I have loved it ever since! I remember it always gave me a great excuse to play and be a kid myself. In fact, I loved it so much, I went to school to get a degree in Elementary Education! I did have to leave school, unfortunately, and could not finish my degree but when I returned back to Houston, I immediately started working in a daycare setting! I loved it! In many of the daycare centers I worked with children 2 to 5 years old and have found it to be one of my favorite age groups. At another school, I worked as a floater, meaning I was put where they needed me. There I worked with infants to 18-month-olds. I found I also loved that age. After working in daycare and a Montessori setting for several years, I thought I would try something different, so I tried working as a nanny and it has been a wonderful experience! I have worked with a single parent family with a 4-year-old/11-year-old, a same sex family with triplets (starting at 21 months until they were 3.5 years) and an adorable 15-month-old girl who was several months premature, so had some special needs, eating/physical. My most recent babysitting experience working with infants is working with triplet 9-month-old infants on the weekends as needed. I have been watching htthem since they were 4 months old. I have had a wonderful experience working with these families and can not wait to meet the next family to welcome me in their home and enjoy playing, and learning with their child/ren.

Dominique has been helping me with my 14 mos old for several weeks now. She is very bright, energetic, and a natural with little ones. What really stands out is that she clearly takes her job seriously and is very conscientious. She is helpful and looks for ways to assist. Dominique is quick to play and go on strolls and simply interact with my daughter. I will not be needing her services much longer but would certainly call her again in the future!
