Hello, my name is Jess and below is a brief description of the previous childcare experience that I have had. Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have after reading through it.
When I was in high school, I had the opportunity to babysit for a family in my neighborhood with 4 boys (ages: 3 mon-13 yrs) for around 2-3 years before they moved. As of recently, I have mainly cared on-and-off for my niece ever since she was born, and who is now 6 years old. I have spent an entire summer, and multiple winter breaks, taking care of my niece, as well as taking care of my brother's household (which included 4 dogs). Over this last year as well, I have also helped out with a good friend's cousin's son, who just turned 1 this past July. While caring for the children, there were many indoor and outdoor activities, arts & crafts, story time, as well as furthering and practicing any of their educational needs.
I have always loved to be around my little cousins, and now for the past 6 years my niece, which is how I ultimately became interested in becoming a nanny. My babysitting and childcare experience started when I was around 14-15 years old. As mentioned above, my recently experience really has been with caring for my niece. However, since my brother now lives in Texas, the time I spend with my niece are for longer periods of time. Yet another reason I wanted to make the transition from being an occasional babysitter to a full-time nanny. I am an extremely easy-going, caring, fun and flexible individual. I understand things come up and change, so I can go with the flow when those sort of situations come up. Watching my niece grow-up has truly had a positive impact on me. So with having the experience I have had, I know I would be able to become a fantastic, understanding, and caring nanny for you, if given the opportunity.
