Hi local families,

I'm a responsible and caring 32 year old who has been nannying/babysitting for nearly two decades, and was a lead toddler teacher at a cooperatively-run, nature and play-based preschool from 2012-2016. I have experience providing in-home child care with groups of children under age 5 (including infants age 12 weeks and older). I've also worked with youth in crisis/trauma-informed settings such as transitional housing facilities and domestic violence shelters. I was a core part of an urban child care collective from 2009-2014, and have been employed at various not-for-profit organisations at which I've developed and implemented youth programming, including playgroups, music and arts education, and nature walks. I am up to date on first aid/CPR training, and am proficient in Spanish and infant sign language. I like art projects, playing outside, and teaching kids about plants and animals. I am also certified in the U.S. as a postpartum care attendant, and have worked in various households providing infant care, new-parent emotional support, cleaning, light meal preparation, and errands. If you think I'd be a good fit for your family, let me know!
