Kazuyo M. - Seeking Work in Phoenix

I've always been a fun, very nurturing & loving mother to my children and that's what I intend to do as a nanny/caregiver. Teaching manners and how to respect others are also very important elements in my care giving skills. I have a very close relationship with both of my daughters and I've always maintained the perfect level of friendship & parenthood with them. I don't mind being strict and to discipline when needed, but I know to only take actions with what the parents feel comfortable with. Every parent is different and I know to respect and only stay within my boundaries. Another important element to my care giving skills is building confidence in others. I give love & build confidence in others by highlighting their good & giving them a lot of compliments. Everyone (including adults) needs confidence in order to believe in them self and live positively and I truly believe I do just that. People sometimes call me a healer, because they feel loved, confident, and happy after being around me. I'm also a very, very patient individual and have taught my daughters to be bilingual, responsible, and I even potty trained them by the time they were 18 months. Children of all ages have always felt a sense of comfort with me. I'm a very fun & young (at heart) individual and people always feel loved & nurtured around me!

My childcare was for 2 children boy and girl. They are 4 and 8 now when I started they were 6 months and 4.It was my duties to see that they both had their breakfeast and lunch to make sure that they were dressed and to do fun things together.I also would pick up the children from school and than to make sure Colton did his homework. My hours were from 7 to 5 Monday / Friday. I spent allot of time with them where they were the light of my eyes. NOTE: I work for 2 wonderful families right now I split my time between the two. My first family has 4 children ages 2 years to 13 my main care is for Adam who is 2 when the children come home from school (I pick them up) I make sure their homework is done any chores that need to be done are taken care of. This family is moving to Chicago when school is out so this is why I need another job. We are both sad for I just love the kids and well the whole family. I will miss them greatly. The second family I worked for them before I found the job for the first family (Adam) The wife had her hours changed and because of this they only need someone for one day. We were very sad for the kids just loved me and I in return had form a strong bond with them So when I found the family that only need someone for 3 dyas that was great which meant that I could work for them on the one day. Now thye know that I will have to find a full time job that I will have to work 5 days I will be sad to leave them but they understand. I've always been close the my families. I've been a nanny for 6+ years and I must say that I've been very luckey to have the best children to care for. I found a wonderful job working for a family they had been in a car accident and the lady received a brian injury from the accident. She was able to bring herself back with hard work being able to dress and care for herself. My job was to make sure she was able to get to her daily outings which was a full day of things she was not able to drive so that was my job to drive her there and make sure she was doing the things she needed to do.

Lauren H. - Seeking Work in Phoenix

Since I was 10 years old, I began helping my Sunday School teacher at my local church watch over infants and toddlers during services. There, I met many families who needed "outside church" assistance, and began baby sitting for several families with 1-3 children, ages infant to 5 years old. There were a total of three families that I stayed with as the children, and myself, got older. The family/babysitter relationships were maintained anywhere from a couple months to 6 years. I have a great comfort level with any age, and was trusted by families with infants as young as 3 months old. Seeing children grow up as I babysat them throughout the years was by far one of the most rewarding things about being a babysitter. There's something about developing that positive, role-model relationship with children that honestly fills my heart with joy. When families kept me around for several years, I was able to become a part of the children's lives -- nothing put a bigger smile on my face than seeing how happy it made the kids when they found out, "Lauren is coming over!"

Dear Family, Hello my name is Carmen . I have been in child care for practically my entire life. I love taking care of children, not only caring for them but also teaching them while they are under my care. Kids love to learn which also helps them grow and become productive members of society. I began working in a church nursery when I was 17 years old, and I loved it. When I got married I was a stay at home mom until my 3 children went to school full time. I loved teaching my children and watching them grow and learn each and every day. When they did go to school full time I became a Pre-school teacher and a nanny. I've taught many children over the years and have truly loved every minute. I hope that someday they will look back and remember me and I hope that I have touched their lives in a small but productive way. I'd like to work for a family that is just starting their family or maybe have a couple of children. I am VERY experienced with newborns and multiples as well. I have taken care of babies right from birth as well as older children. I am a happy person that is fun and energetic. I will care for your children with love and understanding as all children are a blessing. I would like to work in or around the Phoenix area. If you have any questions Please Call me. I look forward to meeting you. By the way I also speak Spanish as well. Have a Great Day!

My current duties revolve around the two little girls, ages 2 years, and 5 months, and occasionally their school-age half-brothers. I use the family car to do the family’s weekly grocery shopping at Fry’s and Whole Foods, morning coffee runs, trips to parks, mall jungle gym, childrens’ gymnastics class, walks around the neighborhood, dishes, laundry, bottles, caring for the dog, crafts, prep meals, pick older boys up from school, diaper changes, nap time, caring for when sick, and other miscellaneous errands and duties. I follow the mother's preferences on parenting style, which I would do for any family, as I believe that as a team we should be uniform and consistent. In addition to nannying, most of my experience with children has been from 16 years of babysitting children of all ages and working full time as an Assistant Teacher in day care for 9 years. I also volunteered for Big Brothers Big Sisters all four years of high school and worked with a first grade class for 6 months at an elementary school for my Senior Thesis. As for my work as an Assistant Teacher, I have experience with all ages as well. In Columbus I worked as a full time toddler teacher and in the after school program with the school-age children, and in Cincinnati I worked as a floater in all rooms, Infant through Pre-K, and became the primary babysitter for multiple families in the center. I am certified in CPR, First Aid, Communicable Diseases, Child Abuse & Prevention, and have taken many other various child development trainings and seminars. My husband and I do not have and are not planning on having any children in the future, meaning I am and would love to be fully dedicated to your children and family! I am very active, organized, enthusiastic, love to plan ahead, and enjoy being outside!
