Lydie B. - Seeking Work in Napa

11.42 / hour

Hi there, my name is Lydie and I come from the Czech Republic, I have lived in the Napa Valley for last 9 years, and I am looking for a part time babysitting job meanwhile I am enrolled in school program (weekday mornings). I first arrived to Napa Valley 9 years ago as an au-pair and I cared for 2 little angels, ages 3 and 6. They are now 15 and 12 years old, I still can't believe it ;o) I am in a very close touch with my "American family". I was very fortunate, I am considered part of the family. Prior to coming to the US, I took advantage of the au-pair program, and I was an au-pair in London, where I took care of a newborn, and in Spain, where I cared for 3, 6 and 9 year old. It was a great opportunity because I love children and I like to travel. I have experience with all children's ages, including newborns, and I am CPR certified. Glowing references upon request. Please don't hesitate to contact me, I would like to meet you to see if we would be a great fit for each other. Hope to hear from you soon.

I started babysitting when I was in the 5th grade and immediately loved it. At my local hospital, I took CPR, First Aid, and Babysitting Prep Classes. I have babysat for friends and family members for several years on/off and have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of care giving. I am fascinated by the idiosyncrasies of children and value effective, respectful, and communicative care giving strategies . I attended the Napa Valley College for a few years and did receive an Associate's Degree. I am now enrolled in online classes toward a B. A. in English, but my ultimate goal is a PhD in English with an emphasis in Russian literature. Ideally, I would like to have a full-time and live-in position. To ensure the best care, I think it is essential to work with one family at a time, not only to build a rapport with the children, but also a collaborative relationship with the parent(s).
