Hello my name is Nickie. I am a stay at home mother. My son Blake just turned 5 and started Kindergarden at Herbert Adkins this year. He is track 2.
I currently care for a sweet little boy who is one & will be moving in the beginning of Nov. So I now have a opening. I have availability M-F from 6:00am - 6:00pm for one full time child.
I am CPR/First Aid Certified and have experience in daycare, nursing, and being a mom. I have references upon request.
I have 5+ years experience in caregiving. I was a babysitter the whole time I was in High School and college, but did stop for awhile to join the work field. I recently quit my job as a sales specialist earlier this year because Blake started school. I am more than happy for you to drop child off to my home but am willing to travel to you if you are in my area & are ok with me taking/picking up Blake from school each day, otherwise he will ride the bus from my home. My home is clean, pet & smoke free.
Just to give you a idea of what I do with the kids, here are a few. We love reading ,The Hungry Caterpiller, The Itty Bitty Spider, Dr. Seuss....It's very important to read to the kids! We enjoy new books from the library bi-weekly .
We love to...finger paint, have dance contests, crafts (I love Pinterest!), playroom, read, color, puzzels, board games, and flash cards.
Outside we go crazy! Hide and go seek,duck-duck goose, mother may I,soccer & hockey, ride bike/scooter, write with chalk all over the driveway and sometimes we just play in the dirt. There is a Park w/in walking distance of my home, so we go there a few times a week. We also have a great big back yard we play in a lot!
We play music a lot! ABC's, Old McDonald,etc. Movies are kinda rare, most parents don't want the kids to watch too much television. Rainy days are exceptions and I will put a movie in on occasion.
I always have a huge fruit bowl of apples, pears, oranges, and bannanas. Also Goldfish, popcorn, string cheese are a snack given. 100% juice and watter to drink. But the snacks really depend on what the parent wants the child to have. Some are stricter than others.
I am CPR certified and do have references upon request. I am caring and responsible. I LOVE kids! Please contact me if you wish to learn more about me and if this seems like a good fit for your child. Thank you & look forward to hearing from you.
