I take my role in the lives of children very seriously. Children are growing and developing every minute of the day. Their care involves my constantly taking into consideration every aspect of their lives physically, mentally, emotionally, and psychologically. My PURPOSE and MISSION: Childcare Children are my passion and childcare is my chosen profession. I couldn't be a professional anywhere else. I am a nurturer at heart. I've been in the child care profession for 10 years, prior I was raising my own 8 children who I home schooled for 16 years, bringing my years of experience to 28. SOLE GOAL: to provide children excellent care in their parent's absence because they deserve it. It is my joy to bring peace of mind to parents when they are away from home. My highest compliment is, "Theresa when I am away from my kids I don't worry at all." SPECIALTY: Reading to children I have loved books my entire life and it is my personal joy to enrich children with the joyful fun, fantasy, and thrill of experiencing lives and worlds that lies between the pages of a book. WORK EXPERIENCE: --Provided services as both a nanny and as needed babysitter: --Years of experience: 10 --Ages cared for: Infant to 17 --Number of children left in my care: 1-5 --Provided overnight care and/or days at a time --Special Needs: Autism, Spina Bifida --TWINS: several sets ranging in age 14 months to 6 --Church nursery: 2006-09: was solely in charge of the room where there was anywhere from 12-15 3-year-olds at a time. Frequently complemented that my room was the quietest. --Church: 2011-13, 18-month-old children -- I come highly recommended and families that call on me for my services do so because I'm loving, fun, but appropriately firm, reliable, trustworthy, competent, knowledgeable, understanding of children, nurturing. When I have a children in my care they are each my individual primary focus. I "learn them": who they are as a person. What makes them happy, sad, excited, their likes, and dislikes. I want to plug in them so that the care I provide will be on a personal level regardless of the number of children under my care. Children are serious business and I take them seriously.
