Stefanie H. - Seeking Work in Arvada

Hourly rate17.14 / hour

I have been nannying for several years now. A year ago I had my sweet son Charlie and decided to stop nannying for a while. I had nannied for a year and a half for a wonderful family but felt like I needed some time to get used to being a mommy before going back to work! Also, the schedule I was working was not conducive to bringing my child to work with me. Currently, I am working for a company based out of Denver (very much part time) teaching small groups of children in their homes. Now, a year after having my own sweet child (a 13 month old boy named Charlie),I feel ready to start nannying again! It is extremely important to me to expose Charlie to other children and feel very comfortable with them. I feel extremely confident in my ability to care for both them and my own child lovingly and effectively.

I began babysitting when I was only 12 years old for a neighbor with a learning disability. However, towards the end of high school I began my first nannying job. What began as one 1-year-old soon turned into a 1, 2, and 3 year old. I think it goes without saying that I have a profound amount of patience when it comes to children. I've been told that I am very engaging with children and that I have a knack for coming up with creative projects.

Hourly rate14.28 / hour

I began babysitting 4 children when I was 19 years old. At the time the youngest was 5 months and the oldest was 5. When I was 21 I had the privilege to work with newborn twins! And I have worked with those children for the last 2 years. One of the children I cared for had severe behavioral issues, which was a challenge for anyone who worked with him including me. However I could usually tell when he was about to have a "freak" attack and could usually defuse him before he blew up.
