I'm currently looking for two great families who I could work with as their caregiver in a part-time nanny share (prefer 4 days, open to 3), starting in April. I'm thinking rate for each family would be 11-12/hr per child, depending on amount of driving needed, if any, or extra help around the host's home.
A bit about me:
I'm a very energetic and playful caregiver who loves spending time with kids in natural, at-home and outdoor settings. My past work experience includes part-time employment with a day care for 3 years while I was working on my Bachelor of Social Work. I also worked as a part-time respite provider for one semester with children with disabilities while I was in the final year of my undergrad. After school, I spent two separate summers as a live-in nanny with my aunt and uncle in CT, caring for their 2 children (ages 9 and 11 at the time). After completing my Master of Social Work in Denver, I worked as a counselor with mothers living in a residential addiction treatment program with their infants, providing education about addiction and parenting at the same time.
Eventually I'd like to do my own part-time coaching work from home. Since it will take time to obtain certifications, nannying in the interim is an energizing and fun position. Once I get to the point of working from home, I'd still like to have flexible income from nannying while building client base, which could take 1-2+ years. I've always loved being around kids and families, so nannying/babysitting now, while I figure out my next steps, feels like a very natural fit for me.
I've been working part-time with a family in City Park for the last year, who would be happy to be a reference, as well as a babysitting service where I've had a background check completed.
Please send me a message if interested. Looking forward to hearing from you!
