As the oldest child of four pretty great kids, I can proudly say that children have always been a huge part of my life. I started babysitting around the age of 13 and have since provided childcare for many wonderful families, proudly becoming a special part of each one! I have cared for children as young as 6 weeks to as old as 15 years and am very familiar with accommodations that need to be made for different ages. I am very experienced in meal preparation, including bottled formula and baby food for infants and toddlers, and knowledgeable in how to incorporate meals, homework, extra curricular activities, down time, and even a little housework in a routine and orderly fashion. I absolutely love being outside when the weather permits, but certainly don't mind arts and crafts and other creative activities on rainy or chilly days! Although my primary focus is to constantly take preventative precautions, I have been certified in CPR and safety procedures for 5 years and pride myself on my ability to responsibly handle potentially dangerous situations. My schedule is pretty flexible so I definitely don't mind making arrangements to accommodate yours, even if it frequently changes! Please contact me with any questions; I look forward to meeting your family!
