Bailey L. - Seeking Work in San Carlos

22.85 / hour
Full-time hours

When I was 9 I became an unpaid classroom assistant in my mom's toddler classroom and from then on, all of my work experience has been with children. When I was 13, I began working in my church's nursery every Sunday from 9:30-12:30 alone sometimes caring for multiple infants and toddlers at once. I continued working in the nursery for a couple years and continued assisting my mom in her preschool classroom when I could. Then I got a summer job at my mom's school as a swim dresser for about 2 years where I would help the youngest children taking swim lessons into their swim clothes and back into their street clothes. That job required me to be in control of 5-9 toddlers at a time which taught me a lot about patience. I then became a swim instructor for 3 years at the same preschool and taught children ages 2-12 how to swim and remain safe in the water. That job taught me a lot about calming nervous and screaming children of all ages. I am now working a children's fitness center in San Carlos where I interact with children 6 weeks-12 years and teach them age-appropriate activities, songs, and skills that promote proper development, both physical and mental, for each child.
