Sitter in Bremen, Georgia

I'm an
Individual
I've spent just under 2 years working as a daycare teacher. During that time I was frequently asked to babysit multiple children that I taught. I also continued babysitting four children under 8 years after unenrollment from the daycare at which I was employed. Most of my experience is with older kids 5-12, however, I do also have several months of experience with 1-4-year-olds (they're my favorites!). I love energetic kids, and I have experience with special needs kids, and I have a special place in my heart for kids with add/ADHD. I am certified with bright from the start early learning, as required by my daycare, which required 12 hours of early learning classes. I am also certified in CPR and fire safety, however, I'm not sure whether I've let my first aid certification expire- which is why it is not listed in my profile. Please don't hesitate to message me if you have any questions or concerns, or if you think I'd be a good fit for your family! My experience with spec. ed kids- During my employment with Little Tigers Academy, I had several children in my class with special needs. Most of these children were on the autism spectrum, and more than a few had add/ADHD. I also had a few children who dealt with echolalia. Outside of a classroom setting, I have cared for four children with multiple learning disabilities and difficulties, as well as serious anger management issues. I feel deeply that it has made me a more patient and attentive caregiver, as I learned to be aware of how certain actions may upset certain children, and how to help kids and myself reset and regroup after a tantrum, or other particularly stressful issues. Relevant experience where I also cared for children- Caring for the children of a family with whom I became family friends because of their four children's attachment to me, as well as my sister who also had the pleasure of working with them. Activities I enjoy doing with children- Home crafts and activities are a favorite of mine, as I feel the kids get to have fun and express themselves while also in a controlled environment with controlled resources. I'm also not averse to playing outside, and even though I'm not particularly skilled at sports, the kids tend to enjoy being better than me at their favorite games! The most important part about being a nanny/sitter- Safety, as well as adhering to and guiding the children towards following the family rules holds great importance, I also highly value the relationships formed with the children I care for. My favorite childcare moment- My absolute favorite moment from my time in childcare was when I was speaking to a little girl I hadn't seen in a little bit, and she said "Miss Caris we missed you!" of course I told her that I missed her too, and she put her hands on my face and said "but I really missed you..." the look on her face was so precious, and she sounded so sincere that it just makes my heart melt every time I think about it! A close contestant was when a parent told me that whenever their special needs child couldn't remember my name, he just called me "the nice lady". It blew me away that I'd made that impact on him, as he had been having trouble with other teachers understanding him.
