My name is Staci and I am a 38-year-old mother of two. My daughters are age 17 and 14. We also have a pet rabbit.
I work as a teacher at a Montessori school in the area. I have worked in a Montessori setting for a total of 12 years with the ages ranging between 2 years old to 9 years old. I have also worked in a daycare setting with infants from 6 weeks old to 18 months old. In a classroom setting, I cover all the areas of teaching: practical life, math, language (we teach by phonics), writing, science, geography, culture, art, grace and courtesy, and of course about nature. I do diaper changes and work on potty-training with the younger ones. I have had children of many ethnicity in my classroom and am familiar with the basics of many cultures. I have had 4 years of Spanish. Although I am not fluent, I can understand the basics. Currently, I have taken the infant/toddler Montessori training at the Barrie Institute.
Over the years, I have babysat for many families with children ranging in age from infant to adolescent. I picked them up from their daycare, took them to piano, fed them dinner, got them showered, and helped them with homework. The family also had a dog that I attended to while I was there. One night a week and some occasional weekends, I currently babysit for a 4-year-old who was in my class this past year. With her, it is mostly just playing. We typically paint, play hide and seek and board games, go for walks or a swim in the pool, read stories and sing songs or other activities that she enjoys. I also prepare her dinner and give her a bath, brush her teeth, and put her to bed before her parents come back.
I am CPR/First Aid certified and have criminal and child abuse clearances from work that I can share with you. I adore kids and treat them as I would my own.
