  Work Experience & Education Background
 
4 years experience, 3 references
I have a Bachelor's degree in Child Development. While working toward my degree, it was required of me to complete an internship to graduate. I chose to do my internship at a daycare for typically developing children, as well as children with special needs. This internship lasted approximately 4 months. I had to end the internship due to my upcoming graduation. After I graduated college, I was a live in nanny for a family of four children (one girl, three boys), ages ranging from 1 year to 11 years when I started. I was their nanny for about a year. While the two older children were away at school, I taught the younger boys their ABCs, numbers, colors, shapes etc. I helped the parents get their children on a schedule so that they knew what to expect and when. The children LOVED to do art projects with me, especially projects they could give their parents as gifts. I helped the older children with their homework and ensured that they were practicing their instruments (piano and guitar) every day after their homework was complete. I helped bathe and feed all the children and made sure that they were in bed by their bedtime. After about a year of working with the family, I was released as the younger children were beginning school. About a year later, I moved to Las Vegas and found a job at a day care. This day care is open seven days a week from 6a-11p and enrolls children as young as 6 weeks old to 13 years old. It operates as before and after school care, a daycare, and preschool. I have worked with each age group within this facility. About 2 years ago, I moved back to the Raleigh and have worked at various child care centers in Raleigh and Cary. I am also CPR/First Aid certified.
