For the past 20 years, I have worked full-time caring for babies as young as 3 months old to 10-year-old children. My main goal when working with children is to create a individual routine for them incorporating music, age appropriate books in English and/or Spanish, healthy meals, arts & crafts and movement that excites their imagination and develops cognitive thinking. I believe that this should be personalized to each child's interests and personality, with the individual attention and affection that each child needs. My experience teaching at an International Baccalaureate school has been instrumental in forming me as a caregiver. Whether it be during meals, bath time, indoor playtime or outdoor play, children are constantly learning. I strive to improve their level of focus by making sure they finish what they started, i. e reading a story from beginning to end or working through answers step by step. I'm most rewarded when parents observe the changes in their child.
