I grew up helping my grandmother with daycare, before I was old enough to help I was her student. I've learned a lot about how to teach children and how to keep them busy. later, I babysat my two cousins. I myself have a son that was born in 2012. I know how to take care of a baby and I am CPR certified too.
When I watch kids, I like to do many activities. I am more about the art activities then anything else. I like to try and help kids learn. I believe children need outside time also, unless the parents say otherwise. I love to read out loud and love to dance and make things fun. I know I don't have any paid experience but I promise I'm not as new as you think. :)
More about me:
I plan to go to college for a vet tech and continue helping others in any way possible. I am originally from Minnesota. I moved to Washington at age 18 so I could get to know my mother. I started working side jobs and whatever I could get to be able to take care of myself at age 13. My very first job was watering flowers in a cemetery for only 6 dollars an hour. when I wasn't doing that then I was babysitting my cousins and helping my grandmother with daycare. When my grandpa got sick I ended up being the cook for lunch hour or sit with the kids and read to them while my grandma got nap cots ready. I also lived on a farm most my teenage years. when my grandma had show and tell, I would bring my baby pigs or my goat. kids loved it. through high school I played softball, basketball, volleyball, and I was also in just for kids (dance line) today, I have a boyfriend that I've been with since 2011, and we have a wonderful baby boy since 2012. speaking of, You might have noticed that I marked I couldn't watch sick children. My son was born with a disease, he has been in and out of the hospital more then I can count. his first surgery was at age 3 months. When he gets a cold its twice as bad then when a normal healthy child gets a cold. when my son gets sick he gets extremely sick. so please if your child is sick, please let me know. if your child only has a cold then ill make sure to try and protect myself from germs as much as possible, but if your child is vomiting then it would be hard for me to watch him.
