Rachel H. - Seeking Work in Mesa

Hourly rate11.11 / hour

Summer of 2000 I babysat a 1-year-old girl (McKinley), 3-year-old boy, (Tevon) and a 5-year-old boy (Trevor) for a summer while their single mother worked at a restaurant. This was probably my first real experience as a babysitter. 2000-2003 I babysat for a lady- watching her daughter everyday after school everyday and sometimes on the weekends when her mother needed to run errands. I continued babysitting for her in the summer time while her mom went to school to get her teaching degree. December 2005- May 2008 I have nannied my brother and his wife's first child since she was probably around 6 months old occasionally. May 2007-August 2007 I was a nanny for a couple who were both police officers. They had two children for me to take to and from their summer sport activities, and 3 dogs for me to care for along with other household chores. Growing up, I would babysit my next door neighbor's boy from ages 6-9 frequently so they could go on dates and go to other activities. From September 2009 to previous I have been looking after a 7 year old girl and a 9 yr old boy, taking them to and from school, activities, and watching/playing with them at their house and my own. Besides that, I'm a mother of two boys: one born Sept. '08, and the other born Aug. '10 and they are the greatest joys in my life. There have been a lot of other babysitting experiences other than this, and if you have questions, please let me know and I'd be more than happy to expand on this information.

I have 17 years experience as a director and owner of a child care center. All of my children were reading at 4 years old. I cared for 21 children of all ages (including 4 infants) and am successful and passionate about my work and have a one year internship working as a 1st grade teacher at ASU. My current job has ended due to the fact that my employer has lupus and can no longer work at a job that contains many hours. It is a wonderful family and although sad to need to move on, I will continue my communication with the children and mother. I have two adult children that no longer live with me, (27 and 29 years old) I am a highly experienced Nanny, well adjusted adult and very settled, lead a docile life with few needs and am very content with my lifestyle and believe children’s behavior is purely dependant on how fair and well they are treated and I am very devoted to the children I care for. My references will be outstanding! I believe you will be impressed and I have a lot of confidence in my techniques of caring for children. I am very loving, caring, honest and loyal to the families I work for. . I also have a degree in Equine Science. I am high energy and enjoy teaching children and am CPR certified and fingerprinted by Dobson high school where I volunteered to work with special needs children. These are all circumstances that would make a good fit for your family. References will be providing during interview. Kathleen

I have cared for children at a young age by taking care of the neighborhood kids and cousins. I started to watch children by myself around the age of 12 watching three children for a couple of hours. As I became older, I worked with a particular family for a couple of years watching the children all summer for up to 12 hours a day. With that family, I woke the children up, made them breakfast, brought the two girls to their gymnastics practice, picked them up later in the day, supervised by the pool, brought them to nearby parks, made lunch and dinner, etc. Now, a senior in college, I have a wide experience with children of all ages. Currently, I work for three families up to twice a week for each family. The ages range from 6 months to 6 years old. With these families, I have up to three children, making them dinner, entertaining them, giving them baths, reading them books, putting them to bed, etc. I have had all GREAT experiences with both the parents, as well as the children!
Rebecca M. - Seeking Work in Mesa

Hourly rate14.28 / hour

I have gained almost four years of experience working with children and youth as young as 12 months of age. I have enjoyed working in various environments including: day care, after-school programs, and teaching preschool. My undergraduate studies were completed at San Francisco State University. I am one course short of my degree in Child and Adolescent Development. My passion has always been working with children. I believe every child learns differently, and it is the responsibility of the parents/teachers/caregivers to realize his/her learning style early on, to help better reach their full potential. Activities I enjoy doing with children include: outdoor activities such as swimming, games, sports, and going to the park; indoor activities, include: age-appropriate arts/crafts and sensory projects, board games, reading to children, learning songs (the little ones love it), and helping with school work.
