Hello!

My name is Linda. I'm a very sensitive, and kind person who likes to spend time meditating, reading, writing, doing yoga, being in nature. I have an undergraduate degree in English.

I have over tens years of babysitting and nannying experience, have taught English in a foreign country, and have been an au pair abroad.

I cherish children. I find them such magical beings with so much innocence and curiosity! They are very wise if we take the time to listen to them.

I am very interested in working with highly sensitive kids!

Hi there, my name is Jill and I love caring for kids! My first job was as the neighborhood babysitter beginning when I was 11 yrs old. I took it very seriously and took CPR courses and had many families I worked for. I continued this until I was 17 and moved away. I began working as an instructional aide for children with Asperger’s who were mainstreamed in a regular classroom when I was 19 and did this for a few years. While doing so, I continued to babysit in my free time. I have also worked as a teacher in a home daycare and was mostly responsible for the youngest children. (Although I worked regularly with all ages.) I have a degree which began as an ECE major (so I have a lot of ECE units), but I changed my major to Nursing when I saw that so many of the teachers in the school I was working in were either being let go or were not making nearly enough to make ends meet. I thought it would be a more sound financial plan to change to a Nursing career. After being accepted into the Nursing program, I felt it wasn’t a good fit for me and was unhappy. I realized that my true passion is being with kids and I want to bring my knowledge and experience to my next job where I can enjoy watching children learn and grow (it truly gives me great satisfaction)! I’m a good choice because I know the appropriate activities to engage in with your child for their age and developmental stage. I love all ages of kids, as each brings their own fun surprises but I think my favorite is 6 months to 2 years. These years are so exciting to witness due to the incredible amount of growing and learning that’s taking place. It amazes me every time. I also think I’m a good choice because I come with the added bonus of all my pre-Nursing knowledge! I’m CPR certified too. I have current fingerprint/background check ready with a clearance number for you to check. New car, long time drivers license, and a perfect driving record.

My experience has been with children between 7 months - 13 yrs old but I'm comfortable with all ages. I've had experience helping with homework, prepping food, bathing, helping with sleep/putting to bed, playing sports, changing diapers, reading, light housecleaning, petsitting while babysitting and arts/crafts. Think it's important to provide children with fun, safe & enriched environment.

I have been a nanny for 5 yrs now and love it. I am very responsible and confident in watching all ages. I have worked at a day care. I've also helped out at a church with the infants and preschool kids. There also are many small children in my family who I watch. I've baby-sat since I was 12 and I love being in any environment with children.

I have been babysitting since I was 12 years old and have always had a passion for teaching and caring for children. I regularly babysat 2 boys for 10 years, and nannied for them during the summers. I started the position when the boys were infants and still continue to see them from time to time. I attended James Madison University where I earned a Bachelor Degree in Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies, minor Elementary Education and also earned a Master of Arts in Teaching (PreK-6). I have worked with kindergarten, 1st grade, 3rd grade, and 4th grade. I feel comfortable and connected with all age levels.

I used to babysit for some friends and family, especially back in high school. I have not had as much experience with infants as I have 3 year old children and up, but I would love to gain more experience. When I was 18, I was the counselor and lifeguard for a group of 7 year old girls at A church camp for a week. That was a great experience! I would make sure they were clean, teeth brushed, clean clothes, hair brushed, and more for the entire week. I also was a swim instructor for about a year, and I taught kids from year old to thirteen years old and sometimes older. Most of the children were around three. I have learned even more from my experience as a swim instructor. I also felt much more secure watching and teaching them because you had to be CPR and lifeguard certified in order to be a swim instructor.
