Deb seeks loving family Coronado

My name is Deb, Heres a bit about myself; I live on Coronado Island near San Diego. I have well over 30 years of childcare experience, caring for my own children as well as being a sole charge nanny to newborns thru teens. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education & Development and trained in Infant-Child CPR & First Aid. I am Federally Registered and Background Checked through FBI Trustline. (For identity/security reasons, my Drivers License # for Trustline access will be given only after in person or phone interview). I have extensive experience caring for newborns~infants as well as newborn twins and premies, including nighttime newborn care and sleep training after age four months. I have a natural ability with newborn thru toddler age, but I love and enjoy children of all ages. I have nighttime newborn care experience with singletons, multiples and premie twins. I have a spotless driving record with a reliable vehicle to always assure you of my timely arrival at your home. However, my car only seats two people, so a family would need to provide a vehicle for transporting more than one child. I've cared for children newborn thru teens, organized play dates, after school activities, transporting to sports, dealt with school, teachers, errands, groceries, children's meals, home service calls and laundry. I am a strong believer in reading to children as early as infancy. I'm an artist~creative & seamstress, so I'm a big fan of including arts & crafts in my days with the children that I care for. My rate is $20-$35 per hour depending on ages, number of children, premie or disability needs. I'm honest, dependable and kind. I believe in honest and open communication with the family that I'm working with. I treat the people whom I'm working with, with respect and appreciation. I am confident in my abilities to care for children of all ages and manage a busy family and household. I appreciate your consideration. Best, Deb Hodge

Newborn thru Teens but I adore newborns and have really been focusing on that age group for the past few years. I have been doing a lot of overnight newborn jobs and I love it!

Most recent experience would be newborns and infants.

yes

Autism & ADHD

I adore children and love being a nanny.

I am a creative, so injecting creativity and art into my time with children is important, along with lots of reading and interacting with other children of similar ages, allowing them to learn sharing, patience, empathy & compassion. I find that exposure to the outdoors and nature is also vital to a child`s development.

Honesty, compassion, empathy, patience loyalty and flexibility.

Associates Degree

I come from a family of seven kids, my mother was an RN, my dad a Navy Fighter Pilot. I have been married for 23 years, , my three kids are all grown. I live on Coronado Island with my husband, Dave and my 19 year old daughter, Madyson. My 21 year old son, Davey lives just a few blocks from us, also on the island, and my oldest child, Brittany, lives not far, in Hillcrest.

My other interests include creativity, art and sewing. I have a small business as well. http://www.swoonwithdebhodge.blogspot.com http://www.etsy.com/shop/theartfulgirlsclub Creativity is incredibly important to me, it allows me to express myself and release stress when needed.

I believe in communicating with a child, allowing a child to express their feelings, while at the same time letting them know that I can hear and understand their frustrations. I feel that a child needs to feel `heard`, thus giving them the opportunity to soothe and calm them self. I am a strong believer in redirecting a child, as long as the situation doesn`t involve harm to his/her self or another, at which point, calm communication and patience should come into play where I have the obligation and opportunity to teach a child how, why or what is wrong with the behavior. I never, never refer to a child as `Bad`, as I believe that it is damaging to the child`s self image. If I am caring for an older child, communication becomes even more important. I`m not a fan of `Time-Out`, but I am in favor of removing a child from a frustrating situation, allowing them to calm themselves, express their frustrations, then reentering a social situation. I don`t believe in spanking.

COMMUNICATION and honesty.
