Chloe B. - Seeking Work in Vista

Full-time hours
6 yrs of experience

Hi! My names Chloe and I've been nannying for about 7 years. I started young, at 10 years old, when I was the full time babysitter for my neighbors' 2 kids. About 2 years later, when I was 12, they had another child and they made me full time nanny. I was with those kids almost everyday after school and on the weekends until they moved to Grand Rapids in the fall of 2015. After that, I did a lot of on and off babysitting jobs, as well as a semi-long term nannying job for a family with one 12-year-old girl. Currently, I work at a day care where I care for infants and toddlers all day everyday. I am Red Cross certified, and will be getting my certification renewed in August. I will also have attended 10 hours of training classes in child development by early August. I am planning on moving back to California in mid August to be closer to my family and am looking for a job ahead of time. I love the daycare scene, however I am ready to move back into the private nanny field as that is what I’m most comfortable with. If you have any questions feel free to shoot me a message!:-)

< 1 yr of experience

Hello my name is Jessica Ramirez I’m 19 years old. My past experience was from working at a daycare and the children were from ages 4-6 years old and that gave me an amazing experience. I love working with children because they always teach me the little things in life but more importantly,I love children because I was once a child too and had a happy childhood and I want them to have the same or even better childhood memories, and being part of that is what makes it all worth it.

I have seven children of my own and I know how difficult it is to trust anyone with our children. I love children and I love treating them as my own. I’ve been in your shoes I’ve searched for Nannies and believe me it was a hard thing to do. I’ve taken care not only of my own children but friends and family’s children. So far I haven’t had no complaints of how I take care of their children.
