Sitter in Fullerton, California
My name is Kalin Croutch and I am an 18 year old student at Hope International in Fullerton. I am a single woman with no kids or pets as I live on campus at my school. I help out with homeless ministry at my church in San Dimas and before that I was heavily involved in my hometown church doing everything from children's ministry to coordinating outreach and church wide functions. I am fluent in English and decent at Spanish. I grew up on the border of Mexico so I picked it up quickly. I have my own, very reliable car and clean driving record.
I have been working with kids for about 5 years to include, overnights, long hours, working in a daycare and Sunday school teacher. I have worked primarily with kids from birth to preschool age but have also worked with elementary and middle schoolers. Most recently I worked for a family with 2 kids (4 and 2) but have taken care up up to six at a time under the age of 5 in the past.When it comes to caring for children I do not generally allow TV or electronics and if so its for a limited time. I encourage reading and arts and crafts as those are my favorite. I believe in time out as a punishment, and counting down as a warning. I love to play and engage with the kids and take them outside or to the park if that's something you're comfortable with. I can cook simple meals and I have extensive background in food allergies, especially gluten. I can also clean, do laundry, run errands or anything else your family may need. I have a very open schedule and only have school a couple hours each day.
