My name is Kristin. I am 27 years old and I have been watching children for 10+ years. I have worked as a babysitter, nanny, and childcare worker in church nurseries.
I am a fun-loving person! I love spending time outside, I love reading. I knit and I love doing arts and crafts. I have been playing piano for 20 years and have taught a couple people how to play piano as well. These are all things that I hope to share with your family! I look forward to hearing from you soon!
Kristin's childcare philosophy:
I have watched children from age six weeks to twelve years of age. With the older children I focus
on doing arts and crafts, reading to them and having them read to me,lots of play time outside, and fun outings one or more times a week with parental permission. With the toddlers, I focus on imagination and creativity by playing games such as dress up. I've learned with toddlers you can make almost anything into a game for them.
With little ones I focus on developmental milestones, plenty of love, and having their basic needs met.

Tell us your experience working with newborns and infants. What did you find most
What did you find most rewarding?
I have work with infants from six weeks to twelve months old. I think the most challenging things about babies are that they do not come with instruction manuals and they do not talk. Their can be a variety of situations that can come up and leave you scratching your head and wishing their was someway for you to interpret what your baby is thinking and feeling. To me the most rewarding part of watching a baby though is when that baby is snuggled up against me sleeping, or when our eyes meet and the baby smiles and laughs. Those are the moments that I love!
