  About Me
Why hello there. My name is Kayla, and I would like to consider myself a fun loving caring people person. I believe everything in life is about perspective and respect, and with that I would like to say there is always more to the surface than what meets the eye. Too many times do we get so caught up in life to take the time out and notice the little things. I love people and I love getting to know any individual given the opportunity. One day I intend to get back into school majoring in psychology.

I love love love children. My entire life I have babysat for friends and family. Kids seems to gravitate to me. There is nothing better than to watch a child grow into themselves and they're own perspectives changing in the process. I full heartedly believe children need love and affection from all sides of the spectrum, especially in such a cruel world we live in. I thoroughly enjoy helping children with homework, making forts in the living room to camp out in (until the parentals get home; )) and keeping imagination alive through playdoh, legos, etc. I want to be paid to play. I have worked at build a bear workshop for over 3 years in my past employment with the company and it was by far the best job I have ever had, if only the pay we're better I would still be employed, because again, I want to get paid to play.

I also enjoy housework, dishes, vacuuming, whatever needs to or can be done in small windows of possible free time on the job.

Any job I may receive, I prefer to be instructed in detail. Especially when dealing with someone else's home. I understand the dynamics of having your own family and creating the environment you want to abide in. With that understanding comes an immense amount of respect for someone else's things. If you do choose to hire me, I would greatly appreciate details on your preferences such as, how you would like me to discipline your child if need be, times scheduled for naps or lunches, medications, etc. Also things like how you would like me to clean around the house, is there a specific scrub you would like for me to use on this counter versus that, etc.

I look forward to hearing from you. :)

  Work Experience & Education Background
10 years experience, 3 references
I have been babysitting since I was 13 years old (currently 26 years of age). I absolutely adore children. I am a big kid at heart so I enjoy playing on their imaginations. When it's nice out I'd love to spend some time at the parkor even just a backyard to pretend we're at a park. I have no trouble discipling children as long as I am instructed on how to do so by the parents wishes. I love to read so reading children's books to a child is even more constructive in my eyes. I know the all around necessities needed for child care, changing diapers or bathss, making sure theres food in their belly and nap times. Anything the parents discuss with me would be 100 thoroughly implemented through my work. I Want to be a help, not a nuisance. 
Childcare experience within the following age groups:
1 - 2 years, 5 - 10 years  
Graduated High School or Equivalent 
I graduated from Portage high school in the year 2007. I intend to go back to school in the near future to major in psychology.
