Hello, my name is Jan, and I am 24.I have a lot of experience working with children from newborns to 11 years old. Ever since I was young I loved the idea of helping, and taking care of others. When I was younger I loved helping my Mom take care of my 3 little cousins. I have 2 nephews and 1 niece that I adore!! I babysit them from time to time, or just have them over for some "Auntie Jan" time. I have worked with 2 families in the past, and just finished working with my third, they moved.
My first family was in Sherman Oaks for 2 boys. This job consisted of drop offs, pick ups, snacks, dinner, homework, showers, and bedtime..
My second family was for 2 girls and 1 boy in Cerritos. I did live in work with them for almost a year. I managed a different schedule for each child. This job consisted of home schooling the 2 eldest when I first started until they switched over to public school. I potty trained the youngest, I dropped off and picked up the kids from school, helped with homework, took them to their sports after school, cooking, cleaning, Dr. appointments, administering medications, traveled once, helped with birthday parties... and the list goes on.
My last family I was taking care of a 1 year old boy in Los Altos 3 days a week. This family only requested that I clean up after anything the baby and I do. On occasions I also took care of his older brother who was diagnosed with mild autism, and was transferred into special needs classes. I am looking for better opportunities, and to expand myself. My last family moved away, so I am looking for new placement. Along with that, I am always willing to learn and try new things. I also worked for a friends mother as a personal assistant at her office in Van Nuys for a short period of time.
I enjoy doing arts and crafts with the children, long walks, playing at the park, reading..... I love to see the advancement in children, and watch them grow. My availability is OPEN.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope to hear from you soon!
