My most recent childcare experience is where I am currently working. I've been with this family for the past two years working as part -time nanny caring for two children ages 12 & 15. My responsibilities include driving them to and from school, sports practice, and other activities, help with homework, grocery shopping, and preparing family meals 3 times a week. I also help running errands, and feeding pets. And I'm responsible to keep track of the kids busy schedule and car pools. I'm only leaving them because I am moving across country to Colorado Springs in mid September.

I started working in a child care center in 2007 because I loved the sense of community. I started out in a small locally owned center that was when I decided I would go to school for education. I love helping families thrive, getting to know them and what I can do to help them in the best way. During college I participated in a work study where I worked in the college daycare. It was very strict, I learned a lot about state standards, NAYCE and the qualistar rating program. I earned my Lead Teacher Certificate and started work for XX, which I love their program to this day. I have learned so much about family partnerships, just listening to families and making little gestures of kindness to parents and their children while they’re in my care that can make a big difference. Just being a little extra mindful. I have had experience in the past seven years with infant through school agers.

I am the second oldest of 5 children, I helped my mother raise my siblings while I was growing up. At age 14 I got my first baby sitting job. Throughout Middle School and High School I babysat for 3 families consistently and would sometimes babysit here and there for a few other families. In college I have nannied for 4 different families.

Duties included picking her up from school, taking her to dance class, and gymnastics, making meals, bath time, bedtime, outdoor activities, and caring for the family dog. During the summer of 2008 I worked for another family three days a week from 8-6. I took care of a 7 year old girl and an 11 year old boy.

Being an older sister, I have been taking care of younger children for more than half of my life. Since I was 9 years old I have been working in the church Nursery. Often times, the ratio of children to babysitters in the nursery was in the 1 to 6-9 range. Most of the experience that I have with child care, other than my siblings, is in the newborn-2 years old range. From helping with the babies in the church nursery, I was able to get several referrals and babysitting jobs for families from the church. I had several weekly jobs for families with more than one child and in various age groups. Also, the church had hired me for two years to watch the the children for the women's bible study. There were three of us girls to watch the kids (who ranged in age from 6 months to 9 years). On average there were about 22 children for us to look after. For the past year, I have been a nanny for a family of 4 pre-teens. In summary, I hold experience with a wide range of age groups and a wide range of numbers of children.

I learned how to stand on my own feet and learned the value of hard work and honesty, as well as fun and laughter. I've worked with children since I was 12 babysitting for various families as well as to my younger siblings and two wonderful nieces both of which i started babysitting and carring for at infant age. I've worked at camps as a counselor in various places for the past three to four years and have paid experience and training working with special needs children for the D20 school district. I go to school online and because of this my scedual is pretty open and i'm ok with anything from part time to full time, live in or out. Working with kids is something I love to do and I look forward to meeting and talking with you.

I have been taking care of children since I was in daycare myself! I ADORE kids. I have worked with newborns to age 15. I have taken a CPR course and child development course. I have my food handlers license. I have been babysitting solely since I was 9. Starting with my baby cousins, then for friends from church and family friends, then moved on to friends of friends and even some new families I'd met because of babysitting, and have never had a complaint. I have great references! I am used to looking after a large number of children all age ranges but am also very comfortable with one or two. The last 2 years I have been working as a Nanny, and I LOVE it! I love doing crafts with kids, playing outside, going on field trips, swimming, zoo, movie, etc. The most recent family was 3 boys ages 11, 9, and 4. The previous family had 5 children ages, 10, 6, 4, 3, and 2. And the one prior I was a nanny for part time (evenings and weekends) while I was still in school, their kids were 4 months and 3 years old. I have also been working at a daycare for the last 4 years, watching up to 30 kids with 2 other preschool teachers! I would be more than happy to share my stories and experiences in person!
