I went to a college 8 hours away from my home. I was lucky enough to get a job at a company. I worked there for 2 1/2 years, during which I regularly babysat for families at the gym and I nannied for Linda Diersbock. When I met Linda she had two girls. Eli, who was eight months, and Riley who was two and half years. I worked at Mygym part time and was a Nanny part time (full time during summer.) Over the 2 1/2 years I worked for the family baby Reese was born. I was a nanny for three girls under the age of six. I helped with house work, travel, holidays, and meals. I still talk to Linda and the girls regularly, and just visited them this past year. After a tearful goodbye, I moved back home to Chico California, where I met Tina. Tina had a five month old baby girl, Elizabeth. I was a full time nanny for Tina for two years. Tina was completing her Masters during the time while I took care of Elizabeth. I also keep in touch with Tina and Elizabeth and visited them this Christmas.

First off, I started babysitting at age 16 and fell in love with kids from that moment. Since then, I have had the opportunity to babysit for multiple families, teach children in a classroom and work at a family summer camp. With my background I have had experience with children in different situations, from a classroom setting to in their own homes as well as camping out in the woods with their families. I also cared for children of all ages ranging from newborns to 15 years old.

Christy O. - Seeking Work in Chico

Hourly rate12.10 / hour

Hi – Let me start off by telling you my name, Christy. I have several years of experience watching children and helping them grow. I have watched large to small groups of children from the ages of newborn to 12 years. Helping children with their homework, learn new things have always been a great joy to me. My 12+ years of experience started with my little sister; my mother had postpartum depression and was unable to watch her newborn. I took care of my sister when there was no other, and helped her grow into the beautiful preteen she is today. She motivated me to take care of other children, to become the “Tickle Monster” or pretend to be a cowboy or princess. I have watched children from 4 separate families with multiple children, and on Sundays took care of the kindergarten class at church. I am certified in infant and child CPR, and have taken care of children with severe allergies. I would love to be the Nanny/Babysitter to your children.
