To begin, I'm a 22 year old recent college graduate. Although I ultimately seek to apply to MD/PhD programs for the September 2013 school year, with the hopes of one day becoming a physician scientist specializing in pediatric care. During my interim I'd like to do something meaningful with my time. Since I've always had a passion for caring for and educating children, I believe a babysitting or nannying position will suite me well. During my time at the University, the university from which I recently graduated (on May 18, 2012), I spent two semesters volunteering at its preschool as a teacher's aide, where children aged 1-4 years were enrolled. I primarily looked after the 4 year old class, and I enjoyed participating in story-time, sing-a-long, arts and crafts, imaginative play, dancing, and various other activities with the children. At my university I took CFS 339(Child and Family Studies- Children's Play), and I learned the importance of play in the physical, mental, emotional, social, and psychological development of a child, so I'm well informed in this respect. I've also had numerous babysitting/nannying opportunities since I was 14 years of age. I've mainly cared for the children of family friends and relatives, with their ages ranging from 3 months -14 years, and I've often cared for several children simultaneously. I've spent a great deal of time(i.e. my summer and winter vacations, as well as my other school holidays) looking after a young boy, now 8 and a half, since he was 6 months old. Currently, he enjoys playing video games, watching action/adventure cartoons, especially of the superhero type, watching magical movies, reading, playing at the park, playing sports (basketball, baseball, football, and soccer), engaging in imaginative play (such as cops and robbers, space adventures, anything involving superheroes, etc.), helping me bake treats, playing hide and seek, doing arts and crafts, and a great deal more. I often engaged in all of these activities with him. I also helped him with his homework and projects, and I made sure he understood the important concepts. More so, I played a pretty essential role in teaching him how to read and write legibly and neatly. As such, I'd have no problem assisting your child/children with their homework, projects, studies, and their overall educational exploits. I've also spent a great deal of time watching his 4 year old sister since she was about 3 months old. She currently enjoys playing house, cooking (both imaginary and helping me bake treats in the kitchen), watching Bubble Guppies and other Nick Jr. and Disney programs, doing arts and crafts, playing dress up, singing and dancing, building blocks, doing puzzles, talking about princesses, and being read to. I still see both children frequently, and care for them occasionally. In short, I enjoy engaging infants and children in interesting, stimulating, and educational activities, helping out with homework, and simply doing my best to appropriately meet any needs that a child may have. I have about 8.5 years of experience as a children's caretaker. Aside from the numerous babysitting and nannying opportunities that I've had over the years, I've also engaged in a variety of voluntary opportunities as well. Most prominently, while in middle school I spent my summer vacation mentoring children from two different schools and assisting them in their studies. I've also volunteered as my church's primary school teacher and day camp counselor over the years. I'm a patient, active, creative, organized, punctual, honest, kind, and fun-natured individual who simply has an affinity for caring for children. These attributes of mine enables me to be a flexible care-giver, and to tailor a variety of activities that will engage children of various ages and temperaments, as I place utmost importance on stimulating children in interesting and educational activities. I also enjoy taking children out to the aquarium, museum, park, movies, library, zoo, beach, pool, amusement parks, and any other place where they can have some good, educational, age-appropriate fun. I like to take advantage of what the city has to offer in terms of educational and entertaining events, activities, and venues for children of all ages. Since I'm a very organized individual, I would have no problem setting up playdates, activities, and outings to keep your little one(s) entertained, of course provided that you approve of all activities and outings. I can start immediately if needed, and work throughout the fall of this year and of 2013 if the position is more than just a summer offer. I can provide any necessary references and documentation to prove my trustworthiness and capability as a sitter and as a legal citizen (born and raised in Brooklyn, New York) and worker of the United States. I look forward to working for a warm, kind, energetic, fun, and respectful family, and to the new experiences that such an opportunity will afford.

The family has 17 month old boys. They were born at the end of their second trimester, although the family lives in New Orleans. Unfortunately, the family had to live in Houston for the next 9 months while the babies were recovering in the NICU. When I began working for the them, in September of 2012, boys were technically 9 months old, but, developmentally, they were about 3.5 months old. One baby is on oxygen 24/7 and is fed through a Mic-Key button in his stomach. I had experience working with special needs children through a summer camp I had worked with, but the youngest children I’d cared for there were about 3 years old. I’ve been with them for about 8 months and the boys are doing much better; they’ve caught up on their development and are, developmentally, about 13/14 months. Working with them was initially very challenging. I had very little experience working with such fragile children. Besides their parents, nurses, and therapists, I was one of only three people allowed to be around the boys because their lungs were underdeveloped and they were very susceptible to illness. Working for them, however, I’ve learned a great deal about early childhood development. I often sat in with their physical, speech, and occupational therapists to learn the correct ways to help Knox and Gabe catch up. Now the boys go on playdates and have select visitors! My duties include: preparing the boys’ meals, bath-time, nap-time, cleaning their room and play area, cleaning and sanitizing their bottles, dishes, toys, and medical equipment, folding and putting away laundry, some therapy activities, administering medicine, reading, singing, playing, and nurturing them! I watch them between 4 and 10 hours a week depending how often they need me or when I’m available. I began working for them in September of 2012 and will finish May 2013 with them until I leave for New York. The family has a 13 month old daughter. I began working with their family when she was about 3 months old; I was her first babysitter! My duties include: bath-time, nap-time, bed-time, preparing meals, feeding, reading, playing, listening to music, taking her for walks, going to the park, washing her dishes, occasionally folding and putting away laundry, tidying play areas and whatever else their family needs. I would occasionally dog/house sit for the family when they were out of town. I watch her for about 16 hours a week with occasionally additional night and/or weekend jobs. I began working for them at the end of June in 2012 and will finish the month of May 2013 with them until I leave for New York. The family has three children. I began working for them in May of 2012 when their children were all a year younger. I worked for them for 30-45 hours a week from May until the end of June and then 15-25 hours a week for the remainder of the summer. As the summer nanny I had a variety of duties to work with the changing schedule. Generally, although not everyday, I was responsible for picking the kids up from school, helping with homework and summer reading projects, tutoring all three children in reading, preparing and feeding them breakfast, lunch and dinner, doing their laundry and dishes, help clean their rooms, other light housecleaning, creating activities for them, playing with them, walking the family’s dogs, and bringing them to camp, playdates, the movies, swim practice, the pool, kids museums, the library, the movies, the park, the zoo, the aquarium, etc. As a babysitter: The family has two sons; Stephen is 2 years old and Zac is 3 months old. I’ve babysat for them very occasionally for about a year. My duties working with their family included: feeding and bathing the boys, playing and entertaining them, bringing Stephen to the park and putting them down for naps. I would generally work 6-8 hours a day when I would sit. The family has three children who I’ve occasionally sat for about a year and a half. India, Joshua, and Jonas are 9, 6, and 4, respectively. I generally work as an evening sitter, but I’d occasionally work full days or even over night for 2-4 days, when the parents were out of town. When Kiran and Jonathan were out of town, I was basically the childrens’ parent, brining them to and from school, to birthday parties, all meal preparation, presiding over homework, etc. On normal occasions, however, I prepared and served dinner, helped with homework, played and entertained the children, and presided over bedtime rituals.

Over the past 8 years I have had the privilege to work with some amazing families, some of which I still keep in contact with till this date. I have shared my knowledge with them and cared for their little ones. On an average day my responsibilities would include some or all the following: going to the parks, taking the children to the playground, go to arranged play dates, music classes, feeding, cooking healthy meals, changing of the diapers, giving baths.If weather does not permit, a day indoors would be planned with interactive and educational games, reading, singing, little art projects, playing dress up- simply anything fun to keep them going.
