Jessica  J. - Seeking Work in Mobile

I currently moved here to Mobile from Ohio because my husband is in the USCG. I've nannied and taken care of children, starting since I was 12 with babysitting. Anything the children need, I provide with the best care. I take the general well-being the child/children as my first priority and put their health and safety first always. I currently have 20 credits in Early Childhood Education so I really enjoy learning adventures with the children; museums, science centers, zoo's, and historical sites that encourage the children to learn and be creative. I don't curse, abuse drugs/alcohol, or have inappropriate conversations in front of the children. When I am with the children, my main focus is them and I am not abusing my cell phone privileges or putting my attention elsewhere.

I have over ten years of childcare experience from newborn to eleven years old with references. I have nanny experience from three families for the past six years. The kids' ages range from 1 month to 14 years old. I was also a nursery substitute for a local church twice a week. The kids' ages range from infant to 5 years old. In college, I interned 8-10 hours a week for an organization, which aims to strengthen families and prevent child abuse and neglect by providing free training, education and support for parents and caregivers in Southwest Alabama. I helped monitor child visits and babysit children while their parents attend parenting classes. I was a volunteer for a local relief organization, which has allowed me to participate in countless children related activities. I also worked at a family daycare during the summers, as well as a residential facility for children with autism.

I have various types of childcare experience in the past and currently. I am a teacher who is certified in Elementary Education (K-6) therefore, I have interacted educationally with children. On the other hand I've been babysitting since I was in high school so caring for children and their needs is not something completely unfamiliar. I've nannied infant twins in the past before and taken care of a family of 4 on various occasions. It's a privilege to interact and be in the lives of children. I wouldn't rather do anything else!

I started out when I was 14 taking care of children at a small church daycare. The most children I took care at once there was 6. After doing that for about a year I started babysitting 2 children regularly. I would babysit them for weekends at a time, from Friday night until Sunday morning. I have been babysitting them for about 4 years. In 2011, I babysat 2 kids after school everyday for about 6 months. there I helped with homework. I have also tutored another child after school, for about 6 months. I have also volunteered at the hospital, where I worked in the newborn nursery. There I was very hands one with bathing and feedings.
