Full-time hours

As far as work history goes, I have been babysitting for various families since the age of 12. During my senior year of high school I graduated a semester early, which allowed for me to transition into a full time nanny for a family I previously babysat for. The children (two boys) were 2 and 10. While Josh, the oldest was in school, Chance and I spent the majority of time together. In regards to my duties I did the standard preparing snacks/meals, bathing Chance, reading & playing, transportation to various activities & picking Josh up from school. I also ran errands and did some light cleaning/laundry at their mother's request. In total this position lasted 3 years, 1 of them being classified as a full-time nanny. After graduating from college in May of 2012, I was offered a live-in position with a family in Scarsdale, NY, which began in January of 2013. The family had three school-aged children, who were 7, 10 & 13 when I began. I was in charge of getting the kids off to school every morning, and then any afternoon/evening duties once they got home. I did homework help, transportation to any activities/school functions, arts & crafts, lots of reading, meal prep (breakfast, lunch, dinner & snacks) and the children's laundry. We were constantly doing something, whether it was going to the pool, playing soccer in the backyard or playing Just Dance on the Wii. I was with this family for two years and absolutely adore them! While finishing my second year in New York I decided to move closer to home (Kansas) and found a job working full-time in Denver, Colorado. This is the family I currently work for and they have twin toddlers. When I started this position in January of 2015 Margaret & Jonah were only 6 months old. Working with twins has proven to be such a rewarding experience and we have so much fun together. Our days consist of going to the children's museum or science museum, visiting the zoo and going to the pool or splash park in the summer. We read all day every day and do various arts & crafts. I try to do at least one main activity each day - for example, last fall we went to the local pumpkin patch where we picked out a few pumpkins that we finger painted. I'm responsible for feeding them breakfast, lunch, dinner and any snacks. We do a lot of preschool activities, so at two years old they're able to sing their ABC's, count to 10.

I’ve been around kids my whole life. I am 23 years old. I have been a nanny for about 5 years off and on for 6 different families with children ages 3 months to 7 years old. For my last family I worked at least 55 hours a week, they had 3 boys ages 11 months, three, and six years old. I was with that family for about a year and a half. I spent a lot of time helping my cousin who had two sets of multiples, and I take care of my nephew all the time. I grew up with my adopted mother running an in home daycare. I was a mother’s helper; I started babysitting when I was 10. At 11 I worked in the church nursery and with the Sunday school. I was there for about 5 years and in that time I worked with ages 1 to 14. I have worked with children who had special needs or who developed slower and different from most children. When I moved to a new church, I worked in the nursery in the toddler room for 4 1/2 years. I started coaching gymnastics for kids ages 2-9 where we would actually go to different schools, set up the equipment and teach for 1 hour. I have been junior camp counselor for a number school aged kids. I can help with homework, cook and I can help make sure children understand what they are learning; I love arts and crafts, and holiday projects. I always have ideas for fun activities that work on early childhood development like counting, alphabets, shapes, colors, animals, etc. I’ve made hundreds of crafts with all ages. I love taking kids outside on fun outings anywhere, nature walks, or going to the park and just enjoying the fresh air. I have 4 nieces and nephews ages 2 to 8. I have 2 children that are 1 and almost 4.

I started babysitting when I was in high school for families in my town. I baby-sat full time during the summers and part time during the school year. I have baby-sat for multiple families at a time and for overnight stays. When I started college, I continued to baby-sit part time for professors at the university and other families that I knew. During my last two years in college, I worked as a nanny for a family with an infant girl. My responsibilities included feeding and changing her and playing games that were physically, cognitively, and emotionally stimulating while her parents worked. I worked with this family starting when their daughter was three months until I finished school. During my time in graduate school, I also worked as a nanny. My first year in graduate school I started working for a family whose daughter was three months old. During my second year in graduate school I worked with a family whose son was 11 months. I stayed with this family until I finished graduate school. While working with both of these families, I was responsible for providing for basic needs as well providing developmentally appropriate (AND fun!) activities. I have also had the opportunity to work with children in a variety of other settings. Through a directed studies course, I have worked in a child care facility, promoting inclusive settings for a toddler classroom. Through this experience, I have worked with children who are typically developing, who have developmental delays, and who have behavioral problems in a classroom. I have also volunteered for a month in a children's home in Argentina. I have volunteered extensively with children at a sexual assault center and at an organization for kids with disabilities. During my time in graduate school, I also did an internship at a children's hospital working with children with chronic illnesses, as well as their siblings as families.

I had my first babysitting job around the age of 12. I then watched a few kids here and there whenever their parents needed me. I then became a nanny when I was 15 for twin boys. They were 8 and I watched them M-F, 8-5 during the summer. I was their nanny the following summer as well. The summer after High School I was a nanny for three children, ages 4, 9, and 10. I again was with them 8-5, M-F during the summer. Two years later, at the age of 20 I became a nanny for a boy and a little girl ages 2 and 4. For all of these children I arranged breakfast, lunch, and snack for them daily. I had my first experience with the youngest one and helping to get him potty trained. I drove the children to and from such places as baseball practice, the swimming pool, or taking walks around the neighborhood or even to the park. I worked with them to have a structure for their day with lunch and nap times. I enjoyed reading with the kids, playing catch in the background, going to the swimming pool, and making art projects for their parents. While completing my BA in Psychology from the University of Northern Colorado, I completed an internship for the Child Advocacy and Resource Education Center. I supervised visits between a parent and a child while documenting the interaction. I worked as a group leader to children at an exclusive toddler center. Along with another leader in my class, I took care of ten one-year-old children daily. The duties included everything from feeding snack and lunch to changing diapers to putting them down for nap. During circle time, I educated the toddlers on colors, ABC’s, sign language and much more. I followed the Bee Your Best at One curriculum for the toddler center. This enables the children to get a wide variety of reading and art projects as each month has a different theme. My extended family is quite large and therefore I have several cousins and friends that have young ones whom I have cared for and babysat.

I've spent the last 4 years nannying and babysitting for families in New York City. Now an enthusiastic Denver resident (alongside my sweet husband), I look forward to meeting more great families in the Denver metro area! For the past three years, I have worked consistently Babysitting one of the premier babysitting agencies, sitting for dozens of families in a variety of capacities. Some of my jobs were long-term placements with a regular 2-3 day per week schedule. Other jobs were more sporadic, as parents needed extra help with infants, a date night, or just an extra set of hands to safely get their kids to and from school. I've worked will all ages (6 weeks old to 12 years old) and love every stage of a child's development. I'm constantly inspired by kids' creativity and imagination, and I look forward to learning more about your children! Prior to my work with xx Babysitting, I nannied for a family of three-year-old triplets in TriBeCa for a year. Adopted from Guatemala, they each were faced with unique developmental challenges, separation anxieties, and social delays. I was responsible for engaging them, stimulating their development, shuttling them to and from appointments and school, preparing meals, helping to keep the house tidy, and generally being an extra set of hands to two very busy parents. As the older sister of a sweet young lady with Down Syndrome, I have a special place in my heart for kids with special needs. I helped coach her Special Olympics team during high school and have experience working with kids possessing a broad range of physical and intellectual disabilities. While with Artist Babysitting, I was consistently one of the first sitters they'd call when families needed care for their children on the Autism Spectrum. I have derived so much joy and satisfaction in watching these little people develop over the past four years. I'm passionate about happy, healthy kids and families and look forward to meeting yours!

10 months with nanny

Hi! I'm Katie, my husband's name is Ben, and our daughter was born in December 2017. We have a nanny who will be starting with us at the beginning of March. But we need another family to join Part-Time to make it work financially.

We would prefer to host at our house in Park Hill (28th and Ash), though that could be flexible, if it's a dealbreaker.

Though we're looking for a set schedule, the days and times we choose with another family are flexible. Ideally for us, we're looking to share about 4 days a week for roughly 6 hours a day. Somewhere in that range.

Even if you can only do 2 days instead of 4, that's a place to start! Thank you for considering!

We recently lost our nanny-share because the other boys' mom (my sister) had a baby and is now staying home. Our nanny availability is 8:30am-430pm M-F. My child is 4.5 yrs old, and loves legos and playing outside. They are always doing crafts and do play based learning. We start at a preschool in September, so this nanny-share goes through August.
