I have over 20 years experience working as a nanny and a preschool teacher. I have a strong background in Early Childhood education and development, specializing in infant/toddler development. Plus, I am a mother of three, ages 18, 13, &10 and a wife for 20 years. I currently have a nanny position on Mondays and Wednesdays out on the Sacramento river in the town of Courtland, Ca. I have been with this family since their daughter was 4 months old and now she's almost 15 months old. I also am with the xx School District as a substitute paraeducator for the special needs program. This position allows me to work while the family I nanny for takes their vacations or if I simply would like to earn extra money. I also have been caring for another family part-time since March 2015 . It started off as a mother's helper of three small children ages 4, 2, &1 in the evening hours. However, this job is ending next week because both parents are working full time now and need full time care. I am currently CPR and first aid trained and certified, current background check on file, current DMV printout on file, and most importantly I am fingerprinted with the department of justice. I am a dependable, trustworthy professional who loves to work closely with children and their families. I have excellent references too. I believe I could be the right fit for your family. If you would like to speak with me directly, my phone number is xx and you could also look over my profile on care.com. I look forward to an opportunity to further discuss my qualifications and my experience with you.

Hello, My name is Laurie. I live in Elk Grove and I'm 19 yrs old. I know that I am a very good candadite for what you're asking for. I have 3 neices and I've had much experience with them at all ages. My Sister & her daughters have lived me with on various occasions so I'm very used to being around children. I'm very familiar with making bottles, changing diapers, temper-tantrums & everything in-between. I am also fluent in Sign Language if that is something you would want your child exposed too. My older sister is deaf & my mom taught me from the time I was 3 yrs old. I also helped my nieces become familiar with it so they could communicate with their mom more. When I was in my church's youth group, I was in charge of the Nursery occasionally & I babysat for women in the congregation regularly. I would read to the kids, do arts & crafts. I enjoyed it very much. I love being around children, no matter what age. I don't see it as a job, I see it as a very fun privilege.

Caring for children has been my passion since I was young. I love it because everyday is different and new, it's amazing being apart of a childs learning and growing. As I look for a safe and great environment provided by the family for myself, I also will provide the same loyalty and safe environment for the family I work for. I've cared for children from birth to 15 years old. I along side a friend have been caring for foster babies for the past 7 years ( newborns straight from the hospital) so I have alot of experience with children. I have a very large family 4 sisters and 7 brothers which includes 2 sets of twins 10 months apart and twin nieces so im really good with multiples! I volunteered for two years in my church nursery I have experience with special needs children also, two of my brothers are special needs. I am certified by the Sacramento county to care for Foster children and CPR certified. Thanks for your time and consideration.

Hi there! My name is Michelle and I have recently moved to the Elk Grove area. In-between house hunting with my husband and taking care of my family, I'm looking for part-time, local work that will contribute positively to my new neighbors. I am CPR certified for all ages, responsible, and all about safety.

My most recent position was as office administrator for the Anova Center for Education, a school for autism and learning differences. Before my time in the office, I worked as a behavior assistant with Anova. I have experience working with ages 4-18 and I am trained in the implementation of behavioral and instructional methodologies.

While I was going to school to complete my Office Assistant Certification, I worked for Santa Rosa JC as a Peer Assisted Learning Specialist. As a PAL(s), I would attend Algebra II classes, lead private tutoring sessions, and model what it takes to pass, which lead to an increased success rate of the course.

I have been working with children, both tutoring and babysitting, for over 15 years. I have experience working exclusively for single families and I have done many sporadic sitting jobs for people around town. I am able to be fun while maintaining the expectations of myself and the family. I have a clean driving record and a safe, reliable, car.

Under the right circumstances, I am comfortable driving children to where they need to be. Under the right circumstances, I am comfortable toileting, however, I don't have much experience. I am comfortable with most pets. I am willing to meet very big dogs and reptiles to see if I would be a good fit as a sitter. I am an average cook and I can do light cleaning for your family.

It is important to me to be present, not only as a sitter to your family, but as an individual. I will never be on my phone when I am driving your children. I will not use my phone unless necessary while sitting your children. I don't smoke or do drugs. I will always be aware of safety and I am skilled in anticipating risk.

I would love to meet families in the Elk Grove/Laguna area. Please contact me to see if we would be a good fit together. Thanks!
