Edwina

My adult sons liken me to Mary Poppins, but I certainly can't sing like Julie Andrews or Emily Blunt.  Thankfully my grandchildren don’t notice and let me sing to them regardless.  I recently moved to Jacksonville to be near my grandchildren and start a new adventure with my husband of 37 years.  I have worked with kids in various settings from special needs camps, foster care, private in-home care and church-related children’s programs.  All children are precious gifts and I endeavor to nurture them in a way which reflects their worth.  I was a private elementary K and 4 classroom teacher.  I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Organizational Management.  Passionate about children learning to read, I obtained Orton-Gillingham training so I could tutor children privately.    With a wide range of interests, including arts and crafts, animals, baking, and enjoying the outdoors, I am sure to keep your children busy

Hi, I’m Emily! I am currently attending Florida State College of Jacksonville hoping to obtain an Associate of Arts degree in early childhood development. I’ve worked with children since I was old enough to do so. My experience with children included working as a group leader for Sunday school classes at Beach Church. I incorporate art and music into my daily life, and hope to share those entertainment sources with children. My goal is to create the best possible environment for your little ones to be open, safe, and comfortable with me while having a blast!

Madison

Hey my name is Madison and I love kids and am very good with them. Being the second oldest of five kids I know how to take care of any age range of children. I'm not a babysitter that will just throw them in front of the TV or an iPad, instead I provide a family friendly environment, arts and crafts, and going outside to get some fresh air is a must. I also love all types of animals and have no problem with pets at all! Ultimately, my goal is to let the kids have a good time and to let them just be kids. I'm not opposed to helping around the house at all either; laundry, dishes, meal prep, you name it. I'd love the opportunity to become "part of the family". I am currently attending UNF as a Freshman, majoring in Public Health and minoring in Health Science and Spanish. I also have my own transportation and would be willing to pick up or drop off kids if need be. I hope you consider me as a babysitter! Thanks
