As a mother, childcare provider, and avid volunteer I have accumulated over 30 years of experience. My background includes knowledge and experience in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of children ranging in age from newborn through teen years. At the Lampson School, I excelled in a three-year role providing overarching child care support to parents where I acquired key skills in organizing recreational activities, preparing and serving snacks, cleaning toys, setting up special projects, and facilitating childrens social development. I have also delivered child care support to numerous families over my lifetime in various babysitting and nannying capacities, using my patient and fun-loving nature to earn childrens and parents trust. Additionally, I have a great deal of experience working with children with barriers, most specifically, autism, attention deficit disorder, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. I also have experience caring for multiple children of varying ages and multiple children of the same age (triplets).
A few highlights of my experience include:
Teaching children about various health and personal habits, including eating, resting, and toilet training.
Reading to children and leading them in diverse activities such as arts and crafts, songs, and outdoor play, camping, horseback riding.
Excelling at balancing multiple tasks while demonstrating superior organization, leadership, and communication skills.
