Hi! My name is Maxwell, I'm a student at Virginia Tech, and have experience in caring for children during weekends, evenings, and school breaks. When I'm home from school, I move between Crozet, Charlottesville, and Earlysville weekly, so I offer services throughout those regions. I have 8 years of (paid) experience with children and am skilled at creating fun and educational activities while prioritizing your kid's safety and well-being. I typically care for children ages 4 and above but can take care of all ages. I'm adult and pediatric CPR, first aid, and AED certified, so your kids will be nice and safe. I also have certifications in Water Safety, Psychological First Aid, and have been trained for advanced child care. I'm also pet-friendly and have a car that I've made sure is safe and reliable, since I also help with child transportation often. Thank you for your time and consideration!
My mission is to provide childcare that meets the needs of each child and family in a safe, educational environment. I strive to focus on the individual needs of each child, while providing quality, reliable and safe childcare.
Yes! I have all of those certifications, as well as: Water Safety Ambassador, Orientation to Swim Lessons, Water Safety, Psychological First Aid, Advanced Childcare Training, NTA Certified Tutor, and have other Medical and Professional Skills.
Yes, as long as you are able to pay for the background check, I'm happy to get one.
I base my prices off of my years of experience, certifications, history in working for child-related programs/families, knowledge of child development, as well as my references and feedback I've recieved from families. I also base it off of the national average of $22.68 an hour for one child (Data Source).
