Sitter in Kailua, Hawaii

Aloha, My name is Mckenna Strecker. I am a professional nanny who is moving to Kilauea and I am in search of a family looking for personal and private care for their child(ren) . If you are looking for someone whose idea of loving a child is providing the highest quality of care, love, and understanding; please take the time to read about my background and the services I provide as a professional in the field. Below is some information that should help your search in finding the highest quality care your child and family deserve. I have several years of experience in the Childcare industry. I am comfortable with infants through school aged children and have experience with each as lead care provider and as lead teacher. My background includes two years of formal schooling in a highly successful program called 'Toybox'. This is where I was taught how to create age appropriate lessons focused on basic subjects centered on the developmental level of each child. I have also worked in a pre-school learning center which gave me an opportunity to work with children of various ages including my own classroom of school aged children. Here I went through several trainings to include: Child Brain Development, Age Appropriate Developmental Skills, Positive Redirection, & Reinforcement, Accident and Emergency Procedures, Parent Involvement, SIDS, and Life Smart Circular Planning. I've been working as a nanny for the last three years and it's something I love to do. I've worked for two amazing families, assisted with three more and currently still work for one of them. I have made the exciting decision to move to the islands with my sister who is also a personal nanny in the North Shore area. Making the transition from a child care facility to a private nanny environment has allowed me to continue to develop and broaden my care and instructional methods. My philosophy reflects a consistent approach to caring for your child. This helps you as parents to understand the care I provide is purposeful and creates the foundation from which I teach. How I care and how I respond is based on understanding each child's developmental level so I can provide for them appropriately. This enables me to be more of a facilitator than director of the natural growing process. I will always provide a safe environment for your child. This helps me build the physical foundation of trust allowing your little one to be relaxed, have more energy, and the desire to explore new experiences. Your child will always be in an atmosphere rich in support, and love. I want your child to thrive and always have the positive emotional nourishment needed for learning. I can achieve this by modeling the behaviors you and I want to teach. This creates responsive interactions that help prepare your little one(s) to problem solve and establish independence. While investing time with your loved one, I can better understand them by learning their unique ways of communicating creating understanding that helps me provide positive reinforcement using three basic steps: Child's Action Child's Need Respectful Response My purpose is to provide the highest quality care for your child. I recognize the effect I will have on them and commit to consistent caring interactions. I want to help your child(ren) learn, explore, and grow. In closing, I am looking for a family highly dedicated to the promotion of positive early childhood experiences so I can assist in providing the highest quality care, love, and life for your child. I hope to find a family which is as good a fit for me as I for them so I can bond and create a safe environment so your child(ren) always feel(s) secure when mommy or daddy is not around. Your consideration is greatly appreciated and I look forward to hearing from you. Interested families please contact Mckenna by cell @ 480-907-... Sincerely, Mckenna Strecker References Available
