I have great experience with children. After graduating high school, I became a preschool teacher for four years. I then proceeded to be a nanny, which was for three years.They had three children and two of them I was with throughout their newborn/infant stage. I would still be with them if they didn't have to leave for family/personal reasons. My job duties I have performed include light housekeeping, pick-ups/drop-offs, child's laundry, children's meals and can help with family dinners if needed, fun outings (park, play places, etc.), help with homework if needed,traveling with family, out of country if needed too. I have a passport and traveled to Cabo San Lucas 3 times with previous family, and basically just being there for you and your children.

I have been a live-in full time helper for a mom with stage 4 cancer. She has a 2 and 4 year old for whom I have personally cared for and raised since birth. I have been their nanny, housekeeper, organic chef, and personal assistant during the past 4 years. My job started as simply childcare. As I built a relationship with them, the mother relied on me to take on more responsibilities of the household. Due to the mother's condition, I ended up moving in and assuming the entire duties of the household: cooking all meals, cleaning, laundering, ironing, mending, shopping, paying bills, organizing, assisting, nursing, etc. I am the oldest of 4 children in a home school family, love kids, & have plenty of experience with children of all age ranges from birth-16 years old. If you are looking for someone who can get the job done, you've found the right person. I am a non-smoker with a clean driving record. I have a strong work ethic, am intelligent, and am diligent. I also have exceptional references. If you are looking for a trustworthy, responsible person who enjoys serving others, I would love to hear from you. Thank you for your time!

Well 1st off I come from a large family to begin with. So the year I was old enough to baby-sit all my family, neighbors and family friends turned to me to watch their children. I have taught swimming lessons at a local pool in Simi Valley. I have been a camp counselor. Also in the past four years I have gained experience working with many families. unfortunately in this bad economy some had to let me go. =( But in that time I learned a lot about the care of children.

Nothing beats working with children. They bring the best out of you.

I have been babysitting children since I was about 13 years old. I understand the responsibility that comes with watching someone else's children and I respect the fact that they have put the lives of their precious children in my hands. I absolutely love children and would love to watch kids full time, I thrive under the responsibility and the challenge that comes with understanding how different children respond to differing styles of babysitters. Not every child responds the same way, and I try to always understand the children in my care to make sure that I am giving them the best possible care.
