I have been caring for children for 11 years now, allowing me the opportunity for extensive experience in children ranging from 6 weeks up to 12 years of age, as well as large groups of children, children with autism and Asperger's, multiples, children with medical needs and children who need a kind, but firm and consistent caregiver. I have had numerous opportunities to work as a babysitter throughout the past 13 years, including 16+ families, along with almost two years in a preschool caring for children 6 weeks through 12 years. Because of the time I worked in a preschool, I have many hours in training classes pertaining to childcare including CPR and First Aid which I keep up to date. I have had 5 nanny positions with ages ranging from 2 months to 12 years including the experience already listed above. I have also participated in VBS, parent's night out and Sunday school, as well as numerous opportunities for volunteer work. After participating in archery for many years, I had the chance to coach a portion of a summer camp at a Jewish community center, including kids from age 5 - 12 years old. For the past two years I have and continue to work at Early Autism Project (EAP), Inc with kids ranging from 2 to 20 years old. I'm currently attending a University for psychology and biology with a focus on a PhD in behavioral neuroscience and have also taken several classes in early childhood education pertaining to music, performing arts, general arts, physical education, and development. I look forward to continuing my growth as a childcare provider as I approach 14 years of experience and hope to hear from you soon!
