Hello! I am a loving, intuitive, warm, patient and responsive caregiver. I've been working with children from ages 12 months to 12 years old for over 10 years. I have worked as a nanny, as a long-term babysitter, as a camp counselor at day and overnight camps, and have been a one-on-one personal aide for toddlers with Autism Spectrum Disorders. I am happy to provide you with wonderful references from families I have known for years upon request. I adore children of all ages and find that we connect with each other very easily, and I am especially good with shy and/or sensitive children. My favorite activities to do together are any and all creative/art projects, spending time exploring and learning outside in nature together, playing music, reading together, engaging in imaginative play, and partaking in make-believe games. I love coming up with ways to engage a child's own creativity, imagination and curiosity - anything I can do to foster and support that, I will do it.
I am a creative artist at heart, an enthusiastic lover of all animals (the more pets, the merrier). I am a lover of plants and nature and have even worked with several organic farms. I love being outside and I love helping things grow, plants and children alike. I have my own car and am CPR and First Aid certified. I am looking to start December 1. Thank you for taking the time to read my post and I hope to hear from you!
