Sitter in Denver, Colorado

Overview: I believe in teaching kindness, patience, and empathy. For these are the things that make us human, that connect us to the world around us, each other, and ourselves. I love the challenge of finding new and creative ways to instill these values in the children I work with. My name is Desiree Lynch, and I’m a recent high school graduate living in Denver, Colorado! I began working professionally with children in June of 2017, after moving back to Colorado from Alaska. But, my love for working with children began long before then. From riding with the kindergarteners on the school bus all throughout elementary, teaching them to read, starting my own tutoring group at age 10, to helping raise my siblings and niece. I have spent my whole life with children, always taking on a caretaker role. I am high energy, and can keep up with my class of 20 3-5 year olds. I also live a healthy & active life, I love to adventure and explore, especially with the kiddos I work with! I believe in nurturing kids' natural exploration, kids grow better outside! With that being said, I also possess the ability to lower the energy when need be. I've been known to get any child to calm and center themselves, and my methods are proven! Services And Training: Colorado Department of Education Certifications: -Recognition and Reporting of Child Abuse and Neglect -Prevention of Shaken Baby Syndrome and Abusive Head Trauma Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation Certification: -Impact of Bias; A course outlining how bias, even unconscious, affects children. I acquired the skills to recognize bias, in others and in myself, and how to shift the impact. Pyramid Plus Training In this 10 week course, I learned the crucial importance of emotional and social wellbeing in children aged birth to 5 years. This course specializes specifically in the wellbeing of children with challenging behaviors, and adverse experiences. I learned strategies and techniques that allow me to aide in the positive change of behavior that has the potential of evolving into obstacles later in a child’s life . All the way from simple redirection to intensive action plans. CPR, First Aide & AED Training Certified Child Assault Prevention (CAP) Certified Through Front Range Cap, a branch of the International Center for Assault Prevention, I received this certification and education. The training specified the appropriate education of children as far as sexual assault, as they are the most vulnerable. I learned ways to teach children defensive mechanisms, through education, to prevent abuse, and the steps to take should a child ever feel unsafe, as well as to recognize for themselves the signs of unsafe situations. References: Available upon request! Contacting Me: Contact me through this website and I should reply shortly. I would love to be a positive influence in your children’s lives, please let me know of any questions you may have, and I sincerely look forward to hearing back!
