Zaida P. - Seeking Work in Costa Mesa

Hourly rate22.85 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I am 24 years old and have lived in Costa Mesa, Orange County, my whole life. I live in a big family of seven, five kids and I am the middle child. My parents are both European, so I was brought up in a strict, high self-moral family. I have high self-morals and am a strong believer in them as well. I speak English and Yugoslavian fluently and understand Albanian, and I hope you don't mind me teaching them a little. I am a trustworthy person, and put my whole heart out in that of which I do. I have a caring heart and love helping people and am a joy to be around and can make you laugh with the silliest things. I am not your chef either, but I do know how to make all the basic healthy food for children. I also pack my lunch and dinner when I go to work, and always bring fruits and veggies. I don't mind giving out snacks on occasion for an adventurous day, but only with parents' permission. I would like the family to have a daily schedule; I find that works best for both the child and me as well. I am also looking for a family that I can be close with and feel like I am part of your family. I have a sense of humor and a big imagination. I don't mind singing even though it may not sound the greatest. Whether it may be tea parties, Barbies, Legos, coloring, arts and crafts, or reading (as it is very important)/lullabies, I will be on top of it all. Education is very important. and I will make sure that things we do will incorporate it. I have two cats and two dogs at home. I love animals, especially exotic animals so I don't mind going to the zoo or an aquarium. A simple day at the park feeding the ducks, or the beach can work for me too though. I will make sure that your child have some physical activity, whether they are in a some sort of activity (ballet, soccer, dance, etc) you have them in or not. It is very important to keep the child active and bring out the best in them as much as possible. I personally work out every day and eat very healthy. I do not mind taking the child to activities that you have put them in. With younger children, we will work on physical development, like playing sit up games, or rolling over, legs, etc. I have worked with a number of children at once and have the energy to keep up with them, but it's my patience and kindness that helps the most. I am good with all ages, too; I have worked with newborns/twins/multiple children/autistic children. My future plans were to be a teacher, but with so many being laid off, I put that goal to the side. I am majoring in Psychology and plan to work in foster care/adoption agency or general Psychology. I have a valid driver's license, and my own car, a Camry 2007. If I left anything out, and you have any questions feel free to ask!

Hello, my name is Angie. I m 28 years old. I'm looking to become a loving, integral part of a family as a Part time or Full time nanny, I have extensive experience with children of all ages and abilities from newborn to teens, as well as with twins and twin infants (my nanny specialty and particular expertise is with infants and toddler-age children). I'm a big fan of the outdoors and like sports, my favorites being soccer and volleyball. I love getting kids outside for some fresh air. I like creating order out of chaos, so I have very good housekeeping skills. I try to stick with the routine of the parents and I am also good at helping establish one if necessary. I have been working with kids most of my life. I started babysitting my cousins in my preteen years and have been in child care ever since. From my time watching the kids in my family, I fostered a great love and adoration for children. I enjoy spending time with them and engaging their interests whether that be reading, playing a game of tag, or watching Frozen for the hundredth time. I have 5 years of experience with children which has included a lot of giggling, tickle wars, piggyback rides, splash fights, dance parties, and making paper airplanes. I'm hoping to find the right fit for a long-term commitment or as long as I'm needed.

Cheyenne W. - Seeking Work in Costa Mesa

Hourly rate12.10 / hour

Ever since I was fortunate enough to have a little sister come into my life at the age of 9 I have always enjoyed being in the company of and caring for children. I had a very hands-on experience with my own little sister as I cared for her throughout her stages, but after I had a few more years on my own shoulders I branched out to other family members, friends of family, and even my neighbor's at-home day care facility. The wide range of experience I have had involving varied ages and relationships with the children I have looked after has allowed me the skills of being playful, trustworthy, and most importantly, patient! :) I am an avid cook, a diligent cleaner, and I take pride in having an impact on children's lives. From playing games and going on day trips to making sure their teeth are brushed and they are in bed by 8, I have the domestic skills as well as the passion for education that it takes to nurture children.

We love our nanny. Our daughter is at school from 8:30 to 3:00 everyday and our son stays with our nanny all day. We would love our son to play with a child in his age range while our daughter is at school. We were considering putting him school but would love to explore this option first.
