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 as a babysitter throughout the past 11 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. I'm currently attending Augusta State University for Early Childhood Education and have now taken several classes that are in direct correlation to music, performing arts, general arts, physical education, and development. I look forward to continuing my growth as a childcare provider as I approach 12 years of experience and hope to hear from you soon!
