Huntsville, AL Nannies

Krystle A. - Seeking Work in Huntsville

Hourly rate11.42 / hour

I have 7 and a half years of experience working in the childcare profession. In fact, my very first job was in my church's nursery. I have also worked in a regular nursery school where I worked primarily in the 2 to 3 year old class. That class was filled with very energetic toddlers who would circle around me and loved for me to sing and to hold them. Past childcare experiences also include countless babysitting jobs and a summer as nanny to two wonderful children. I also have a nine year old sister who is constantly attached to my arm or leg whenever I visit my folks. I also have 3 years of experience teaching mathematics in the NYC school system and 1.5 years of experience teaching English as a second language in Ukraine as a Peace Corps volunteer. I currently tutor (and the hours are VERY flexible).

Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I can honestly say that growing up I always knew I wanted to work with people, but working with children was something I had not really considered. I had been a babysitter on and off for neighbors and friends of my parents as a teen, but I had never considered making a career out of it! It was through a series of social gatherings that included families, I somehow always found myself with the children, down on their level playing or joining in their games. A few parents had remarked on how amazing it was that their normally shy child really enjoyed being around me. I am not sure quite how it happened, but before I knew it, I was being asked to watch the children of families I had met at these functions and before long I found myself working as a part time nanny.
Angie P. - Seeking Work in Huntsville

Hourly rate11.42 / hour

I raised my brother who was nine years younger than me while our parents worked third shift. After high school I taught preschool from 1992-1995, assisted the director of a home daycare in 1995 and became self-employed as a nanny for two years following. In 1997 I began a career in administration until my husband finished school. I merged those years experience with education and directed summer camp in 2006 for a local Christian school. I have been serving a family PT for four years and he will begin school this year. I am searching for a new family to serve.

Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I had been working as a nanny for a family of two children starting on January 2009 until July of 2011, but they have moved out of town. I started when the youngest was about six months and the oldest two. I was responsible for feeding, dressing and entertaining of youngest, picking up the oldest up from school, preparing and serving breakfast, lunches, snacks and dinners, getting them ready for bed and doing small household chores (ex. laundry, picking up toys). As they grew I took them out to parks and helped their mother take them shopping and to doctor's appointments. On days that the school was out or when the oldest was sick I also watched them. I had also cared for them and their dog when their parents would go out of town for a few days. Before working for that family I worked as a substitute teacher and I have experience in infant/preschool teaching. As a substitute teacher I have acquired an expandable amount of material that I had used in the home of the children I watched, and I am capable of setting up a "work/class space" in the home using my own materials and existing toys.
