Weekend Child Care
I will watch over your kiddos over the weekend to give you a break! I can come to your house or meet you at a public place that your kids would like to spend time at and make sure everyone has a fun and safe adventure. Ideally I would have a chance to meet you and the kids first so that I'm not a complete stranger when they are in my care.
I can absolutely work with children with special or intensive needs with the proper instruction, guidance, and introduction to the child (including: children with autism, children with developmental disabilities, children with physical disabilities such as hearing, vision, or mobility impairments, children with allergies including severe allergies [please let me know about contact allergies in advance so I can abstain from allergens prior to caring for your kiddos]).
I can be a caretaker for your kids for twelve hours maximum, minimum an hour. I can watch over up to 6 kids safely and effectively, 3 kids if one or more of them requires a diaper. If one child has intense self-care assistance needs, 2 kids is probably my max in that case. I can of course also take care of just one kiddo as well.
Please make sure your kiddo has everything they need with them (to carry themselves, such as a stim toy or favorite book; or for me to hang on to, such as a diaper bag) if we meet in a public place. Please plan to pay any entrance fees for all children - if you can pay for me too, that would be awesome, but I can pay my own way if necessary, especially if its somewhere cool like the botanic gardens, the zoo, or a museum.
Training & Qualifications
I am CPR certified (April 2016-April 2018) and was a lead counselor for Girl Scout Camp over the summer. I have experience taking care of kids aged 6-17 in large group settings, and also have childcare experience for kids as young as 1 with multiple children under my care as well from nannying for a summer. I do not drive at all, however, so if that is a dealbreaker, sorry!
