Hi! My name is Niki. I live in the Boulder area. I have been babysitting for 15+ years ranging from newborns to 15. I taught English in S. America, worked as an Outward Bound Instructor taking kids on backpacking/canoeing trips, coached soccer, facilitated birthday parties, and substitute taught.
My mission is to teach kids to value/respect themselves and to cultivate a strong sense of self-worth. I believe it's crucial to empower them to feel confident and secure in who they are at a young age. I encourage kids to have healthy communication and expression of feelings/emotions to their peers, siblings, parents, and adults. I create a space for them to feel heard, seen, and understood on an emotional level. I have recently started my own business to coach and mentor youth and plan on working part time while I build up my website and clientele.
In recent years I've worked with 3 different families with kids ages 4 months, 4, 7-8, 11-13, and 15 years old. I'm excited to meet you!
