Janee A. - Seeking Work in Huntington Beach

22.85 / hour

A little bit about me: I love the beach, people, smiling no matter what (life is good!), being outside, church activities, decorating and organizing, multi-tasking, finding fun in the small things, getting to know people, laughing, giving advice, building lasting relationships, reading, traveling, exploring new things and of course being around kids and my family! I do no drink or smoke (ever) and believe in taking care of my body and having energy to always be on the go! Aside from over 6 years of experience as a nanny and over 10 babysitting, I have a lot of experience tutoring, doing personal shopping, helping organize the home and kid's rooms, helping families move if needed, etc! I love people and believe each day is only as good as you make it. I was the most requested babysitter for Linda in Orange County, and just really love children and family in general! I'm very close to my own! I LOVE kids, of all ages! I have experience with all different ages, and up to families of 10! I also have experience with over nights, traveling jobs, etc. While I don't have any kids of my own yet, I have four of the most adorable nephews on earth that I'm very close to as well! I just hung with my 2-year old nephew Christian a couple days ago! He read The Bernstein Bears book about sharing to me- it's insane! Little memorization genius!!

I had the experience of more than ten years working with children. For more than five consecutive years worked with children of elementary and high school. After this experience, I had the opportunity to work for another family for more than four years with a newborn and a child of 18 months of age. In my experiences have always been included responsibilities such as preparing and feeding the children towards a healthier diet as possible, assist them during the bathing and dressing, accompanying on medical visits, develop social interaction activities with mothers or nannies. I've always been concerned for planning daily activities and playtime. I kept the children involved with various activities for community interaction, such as trips to library, community centers, museums, aquariums, water parks, thus creating a harmonious and positive environment for them. I have no doubt that my previous reference is very valuable in the family's decision to hire me. I am seeking a full time position. I think I'll be comfortable enough to take care a newborn, my previous experience was very rewarding, but I have no objection to children of different ages. I do not have pets and my daughter who also lives in this area is already an adult. I have a degree in Biology from the State University of Feira de Santana, Bahia, Brazil, so I speak Portuguese fluently. My references will be provided when requested

I love my career as a professional nanny because I adore children! They inspire me to see the beauty and miracles of everyday life. I am happy to be a very positive, creative, and charismatic person who has a special gift with children, and a natural maternal instinct. The loving interaction, safety, and exceptional care of children are my deepest passions.

I have had the privilege of being a career nanny for over 15 years. My extensive childcare experience began as a college au pair for a fellow student and close friend. My professional credentials include nanny shares, twins/multiples, travel services, mother's helper, preschool instruction, resort activities coordinator for Disney World guests, and dance instruction to children ages 3 years to adolescence. I have Early Child Growth and Development certification (10 credits), provisions for Leukemia special needs care, diligent "green" health and safety practices, infant/child/adult CPR and First Aid, ECGD "Student of the Month" from W. Wilson H.S. (1995), Student Senate Page/School (92-93), noted on the Dean’s List at the University of Washington, Seattle (Biology, Dance, 1995-97), TrustLine friendly, planning to obtain Doula and Newborn Care Specialist certification in 2018, currently certifying traditionally as a Reiki healer practitioner, and continuing my studies in Cognitive and Child Psychology in 2020.

My special skills and interests dwell among the healing, visual, literary, and performing arts. As a singer, trained dancer, thespian, poet and writer, it would be my pleasure to introduce and share my artistic talents and creative endeavors with your young. Every child deserves age appropriate interactive play and developmental growth activities that are designed to enhance a stimulating and well-rounded learning environment.

My experiences have taught me that each child is special and unique. Children function best physically, emotionally, developmentally, and socially when nurtured in a loving, attentive, positive and harmonious environment that is safe and secure. Ideal developmental processes foster a positive self-concept, self-esteem, confidence, respect for self, and respect for others.

I am honored to inspire an infant's smile, witness a child's innocence, profoundly influence child growth and development, enthusiastically guide the progression into adolescence, and eventually, adulthood maturity. I trust and take pride in the fact that the impact I make is a beneficial contribution to society. 

I'm looking forward to being an outstanding advocate for your precious progeny, providing the highest caliber of childcare services to prospective family candidates, and continuing to exceed professional expectations, as career nanny that is committed to the phenomenal world of children!

I'd be happy to forward my professional nanny credentials, including my resume, nanny profile response - providing an in depth look at my childcare philosophy and personality, educational background - the sciences and performing arts, and references - available upon request and pending a first interview meet and greet.

If you're interested in my nanny employment candidacy, feel free to contact me!

Hi! My name is Kate and I'm 22 years old. I come from a huge family with lots of children and have been caring for them since I can remember. My mom has seven brothers and all of them have at least three children so the holidays are full of joy, laughter, and pure chaos so I am very comfortable caring for more than two children. All of the children that I have previously nannied for have continued to be in my life, despite job switches. I know it is extremely important to be very involved with the children's activities and behavior at all times. I am extremely comfortable continuing to encourage and reward behavior that is favorable and love playing with children, getting to know their personality--seeing how the child likes to spend time. I am a christian and I make it a point to bring positive and encouraging environment around every child I care for. The way I see it, My duty is to give the child a loving care-giver that tends to their need. I'm a Nursing Major working to attain my Bachelors of Science Degree in Nursing at a West Coast University in Anaheim with an emphasis on Labor and Delivery. I honestly love kids and hope to find a good family to be involved with.

Throughout high school and college, I babysat for three primary families. These families had children whose ages ranged from 9 months to 10 years old. Though I was never a formal nanny for these families, I routinely babysat for numerous years. Additionally, I have spent the past five summers as a teacher and choreographer for a Seattle-based children's acting/performance camp in which I instructed, tought, and looked after 12 children at a time. This work experience equipped me with hands-on skills in providing a creative environment for children to learn and grow.
