Raelynn G. - Seeking Work in Fountain

Hourly rate13.00 / hour
Years of childcare experience17 yrs of experience

Hi, my name is Raelynn, but most call me Miss Rae. I began working in a Montessori preschool about 6 years ago and really loved my time in the classroom! In addition, I have enjoyed being both a babysitter and nanny for several families, as well as leading a summer camp for 4 years. I also have a kindergartener and a newborn myself.
Some activities I often do with the children I nanny are things such as playing at parks, visiting the library, exploring outdoors, swimming, listening to music, reading stories, taking picnics, developing language and math skills, learning sign language, engaging in imaginative play, gardening, and making crafts/art. I have a clean driving record and lots of experience driving to and from activities. I'm happy to provide homework help as needed, and I have experience helping with light household cleaning. I look forward to hearing from you!
Jill C. - Seeking Work in Fountain

Hourly rate17.14 / hour

I've been working with children since I was 16 years old. I worked in a daycare center until I was 18. While I was there, I worked in the baby room with 6week olds-18 month old. I also worked out in the big room, which is ages 3-12. When I was 18 I moved out to Virginia and became a nanny. I was a nanny for 2 sets of twin boys for 4 years. I quit that job to be with my family in May of 2007. I moved back to help my sister out with her 1 year old while she was deployed. I also went back to work at the daycare I worked at when I was 16. I have worked with children of special needs also.
