“ I'm a great candidate for job as nanny. I, of course, raised my own daughter, assisted with care of my grandson since he was a baby taking him once, twice a week and did a lot of fun things with him. I helped raise my now teenage niece since she was tiny. She stayed with me for days at a time. I provided her life with lots of enrichment and valuable experiences. Managed her career showing horses, took her back and forth twice a week to her trainer in Scottsdale-we traveled, she took up ballet and performed, took her to church so she could grow in a faith-she became an acolyte. Together we worked on her reading, writing, spelling, grammatical skills both written, spoken, punctuation, social studies, geography, math tables. We watched quality TV together-Animal Planet, Nat. Geo., Discovery Channel, so she would learn about biology, the world, and environment. On those days I took her to school and we ate breakfast in the cafeteria. I took her to the dentist, shopping for clothes, taught her about grooming, good taste in clothes, style, took her to lunch, dinner, events. I taught her how to help serve when I entertained. Let her and her friends help serve when I held entertained with Coffees and Teas and receptions, particularly at the holidays. She learned how to greet guests, and proper etiquette--I let her help with food preparation for these functions. Let her help me tend the herb garden and pick the herbs we used. She's now a lovely, confident and caring teen (age 15). I am meticulous particularly with kitchen and bathrooms. I am good natured, enthusiastic, aware, pro-active, knowledgeable and informed about most issues--including health and healthy eating and other issues involving the world in which we live. I am an accomplished cook. I am patient and caring. I engage children in conversation and turn issues or problems into learning experiences. I have a clean driving record. Regards, Charlene. * Prefer live-in, particularly for full-time. If part-time I DON'T expect to be paid then for hours outside of required time. Once set, I would probably help otherwise as well. Please feel free to call me.

The most recent nanny position I worked for: Was a wonderful family with two boys. Both parents works full time and were very busy. I was with the children from very early in the morning till sometimes late at night. When I first started with the family they had one 2 1/2 year old and the mother was pregnant with the second child. I did multiple activities with the two year old, such as go to the aquarium, have story time at the library, play at the park, and as he got older took him to and from school everyday. When the mother had the second child I did everything from take him to his monthly doctors visits, to making sure he was hitting all of his developmental milestones. I would make sure there individual schedules worked together as a whole. I also did do some traveling with the family when they went on vacation. Working for this family was such an amazing and positive experience. I loved being with them everyday as they were such incredible little boys. Some other nanny experience i have had: The family had sons ages 1 and 3 and were a wonderful family to work for. It was a high energy, busy, and loving home. They were a professional couple with one parent working full time and the second parent working part time. I not only maintained a schedule with the family but I was also very flexible with extra duties or hours as needed. My responsibilities included driving the children to and from school, to activities such as the park and zoo as well as play dates and appointments. I also cooked meals for the boys, bathed and put them down for naps and bed. Leaving this family was very difficult as it had become second family to me. I stayed the summer after graduating to continue working for the family. Another family i worked for had one child Alexa, age 4. This was another wonderful family and a great experience for me. They are a very high energy, loving family who wanted their child to be kept active and stimulated. I was responsible for caring for Alexa, taking her to and from school, activities and play dates. Days were filled with playing educational learning games, lots of work on the computer as well as reading several times a day and preparing her meals. I also spent a lot of time with Alexa outside the house as going to the park, swimming in the pool, and visiting the zoo many times a week. Alexa was a very highly motivated child with a great desire for learning. Alexa had a severe allergy to peanuts so I was trained to administer an EpiPen in case of an emergency. Because of her extreme allergy I had to be very alert and cautious with her care. I have also babysat (all age groups) for many years prior to these two nanny positions.

I grew up in Coldwater, a small town in western Ohio. I have spent the past three years in Columbus as a dietetic student at The Ohio State University. I will be graduating in May of 2014. In high school I baby sat for my neighbors and younger sister, but my experience with children mostly comes from the last few years I have spent at Ohio State. For the first two and a half years at Ohio State I was a volunteer. I have visited these schools once a week. The age of these children have ranged from 4-6 years old. I have also spent a season with a after school program for girls. The program is held at various middle schools in the Columbus area and we visit with the girls once or twice a week. We present interactive lessons on confidence, self esteem, personal growth and physical fitness. We incorporate physical activities into each lesson and run a 5k at the end of each season. The age of these girls range from 8-10 years old. I have also spent some time in xx. While in Cambodia I did marine conservation projects and built a house for teachers but the work that stuck with me the most and that I hold dear to my heart is teaching English to the village children. Each day we held an hour teaching lesson for the kids and my month spent with them helped me discover my passion of teaching, caring for and being a positive role model for young children. In the future I have dreams of traveling the world and teaching in third world or developing countries. I am an advocate for healthy living and as a soon to be dietetic graduate, I am very interested in helping alleviate world hunger. General hobbies: I like to keep busy and try not to have too much "down time." The small town community I grew up in had a love for sports so I grew up playing volleyball, softball and soccer. I keep active now by going to the gym as well as running half marathons. As mentioned above - I love to travel. To fund my love for travel is a huge reason why I have always worked 1-3 jobs while being a full time college student. I also love cooking healthy meals! I would love to be a positive role model to your child and look forward to hearing from you!

Hello! My name is Samantha and I was contacting you about your babysitting job that your offering. Ideally, I am looking to babysit occasionally for a family. I work 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, so I'm free on the weekends and if needed, after work during the week days. I love kids and babysitting. I love to keep the kids entertained with dance and gymnastic lessons (I've done dance and gymnastics my whole life), going outside and playing, educating them, or potty training. Whatever keeps their mind and body active so they aren't sitting in front of the TV all day. I can only do in house(your house) babysitting at the time until I move into my house in a couple months. A little about my experience: I have raised my sister's oldest child until he was 3 years old, her middle son until he was 1 years old and am now raising her youngest with my mother, currently 4 years old and going into advanced kindergarten, I started his education early. I have babysat my whole life. When I was younger I babysat two little girls around the ages of five and seven. I also babysat on random Saturdays and every Tuesdays for a family of two little girls, ages 2 and a half and 1 about a year ago. I have always babysat for friends and family members my whole life. My step sister has three little ones ages 4, 3 and 2 that I just recently stopped babysitting. I also babysit my step-dads little 5-year-old when he is over and they need one.

I have been around large groups of children my whole life. I have a large family and was a built in baby sister to my younger siblings and cousins. I was a sitter for five different families in Jr. High and High school. In college, I was a nanny for an infant for one year. In 2011 I worked at a preschool in Scottsdale as a 3 year old teacher aide.I have also been an after school nanny to a special needs child since 2011. The only reason I am looking for a new nanny position is because her family is relocating to Hawaii. On the weekends I work at a group home for children who have been taken from CPS and have fallen into our care. These children suffer from deep emotional and relational trauma and have severe behavior issues. I am currently a High School leader/mentor at my church and have served faithfully in that ministry for three years with my group of young ladies. My experience with children ranges from newborns to 18 yr olds. I have worked with as many as 15 children at a time alone. I have experience with multiples as well.
