Jacqueline Schwasnick
Ridgefield$25/hr  |  1 yrs experience
My name is Jacqueline and caring for children has been the most rewarding and special part of my life. As a teacher and mother I have cared for and educated children most of my life . I have a great deal of experience with children of various ages and at different stages. I was a teacher in Ny for several years and have 3 children of my own. I have an Associates Degree in early childhood education, a Bachelor's in Elementary Education and a Masters Degree in Reading. My three children are 15, 21 and 22.For the past year , I have been a full time nanny to 3 month old twin girls who were born 2 months premature. I have been home for many years to raise my children and I thought taking care of someone's child or children would be wonderful. I believe that both my teaching background and my experience of being a mother of three more than qualifies me to be a caring, loving nanny to one's child. I am only 50 years young and would love the opportunity to care for and teach your child.

During High School and College, I was employed by a day care center for children ages five through 11. Through this experience, I was able to learn about the different behavioral challenges and expectation that change throughout their lives. I also learned how to engage a large group of students of varied ages in a way where each child was intellectually stimulated. Also, for the past 5 years, I have served as a babysitter for several families who desired a social life on the weekends. I would give their children baths, feed them dinner, engage in positive play, and undergo all of the necessary requirements of the bed time routine. I worked with infants and toddlers during this time. I also have completed two years of student teaching in order to obtain my teaching certificate. This allowed me to become familiar with the different topics that are learned within their school curriculum. With this knowledge, I can help your child with their learning outside of the classroom. I am confident that I can help guide them to have the confidence to challenge themselves intellectually and to reach new educational goals. Currently, I am working as a part-time nanny for two children however as I am entering my upper 20's, my daily expenses are increasing and I am in search of a stable full time position with a family that values education and positive minded environments.

For the past 1,5 years I have worked in a Day Center for multiple impaired children. I have been hired as a psychotherapist. The children were of different ages: 4-16 years old. I have created the Dramatic Club, Reading Club and Art Therapy sessions, all meant to help children develop manual skills, speech correction and develop love in art and reading. Also, I have worked for a family with 2 children (boys) for 2 years, as a part-time babysitter during my college years. We had great fun together doing creative art, reading fun stories, playing fun and intelligent games, singing or improvising.

I am a responsible and conscientious young woman with twelve years of experience caring for children of all ages, including newborns. Within that time I have worked as a “Live Out” nanny on both a full and part time basis. I am first aid and CPR trained and I am comfortable and confident in my ability to meet the needs of any child in my care. In my time as a nanny, I have taught growing children how to read, count, and write. As a nanny with backgrounds in childhood education, I also have experience providing both basic homework help and more subject-specific tutoring. I believe in being a very active and energetic caregiver. My goal is to make sure that all of the child’s needs are met while also making sure the time I spend is as enriching and engaging as possible. During the course of my caregiving career I’ve assisted new parents with day-to-day childcare duties and household chores and am also able to assist with special occasions. For example, I’ve attended parties to look after small groups of children for guests and helped parents with children’s parties. I have a love of animals and have often looked after the pets of my friends and family. As such I am perfectly comfortable and able to care for children with pets and, if needed, can assist with basic pet-care duties. I am available full time.

In High School I took child development classes. I worked at day cares while in school and right after I graduated I started working full time as a nanny/personal assistant. My last position was for the last 9 years for 2 boys ages 5 and 9 and a dog. I worked as the assistant for the family while the kids were at school. I scheduled appointments of any kind, light house cleaning,organization (closets, pantries, playrooms) laundry, dog care, house and car maintenance and I also did the personal shopping for the kids and mother.

In both cases i can honestly say that i had great chemistry with the families that i worked for, which i think is highly important because than i became part of the family and we worked with each other. I like to have some evenings off, and at the same time don't mind being with the child on some evenings if needed, even weekends.In both cases i prepared the meals sometimes for the whole family, and got the children ready for the day, dropping them off, picking them up. I also gave singing lessons to one of the girls,since i am a vocalist as well. I helped out with daily errands when needed, did the laundry for the kids and keeping them entertained and happy and safe!
