Full-time hours

I am 23 years old and graduated in May from Chadron State College. I earned my degree in Graphic Design, however, I still love children. I enjoy spending time with children and feel that I interact well with them. I also feel that both my experience working with children and my educational background make me an excellent candidate for a nanny position. I loved my first experience of being a nanny and would like to have another great time. I enjoy travel and seeing new places. I have been babysitting since I was about 13 years old. I have always loved children and babies and love interacting with them and watching them learn and grow. After my freshman year of college I received a nanny position in Lakewood, CO, for the summer. The family had a 1-year-old girl, a 3-year-old boy, and a 6-year-old boy. I have worked with another family in Aurora, CO, and cared for their 5-year-old son, and twin 2-year-old sons. In the summer of 2010 I worked with a family in Denver, Colorado with a 5-year-old, 2-year-old, and 7-month-old. And last summer I worked for a family in Omaha, NE with their 5-year-old, 3-year-old, and 1-year-old.

I am a mother of 2 children, a boy and a girl, ages 7-9. I have plenty of experience multitasking while caring for several children at one time. I believe in incorporating fun into education to keep the children interested in whatever planned activity that I have scheduled. I believe in the importance of health not only in food but with exercise at any age. I have cared for more then 6 children at one time. I love kids and feel beyond fortunate to be a mommy. My background is in Event Managing and Film/TV production. I have overseen crews of 300 plus. Since being a mommy, I have chosen to reel back in that career path and really become involved in my children's daily lives. Caring for children is the most fantastic job that I have been fortunate enough to do. We recently relocated to Highlands Ranch from Telluride and are a very active/outdoorsy family. I am also involved in a martial arts instructor training program to teach children to adults practical self defense. I help run children's birthday parties and parents night out events at the Martial Arts studio with 30 plus children in attendance. Since I have children, I also need to take them to school at 8:30 a.m. and pick them up at 3:30 p.m. As noted, I am able to care for 4-6 plus children at one time. I can be flexible with my children's arrangements. Also, my husband is available full time every other week to help with our kids so I can be available any hours every other week.
Ashley S. - Seeking Work in Highlands Ranch

I began my experience of working with children when I was in high school during the years of 2006-2008. My mother is a teacher, and over the years have found that I love being around children more and more. So much so that I'm currently completing my bachelor's degree in early education. I enjoy lesson plans that spark a child's imagination & allows that to grow a love for learning. I am also not afraid to read stories in silly voices, or pull out art projects and get a bit dirty with children. Over the years I have worked with a number of families, and feel that I could really be just the right fit for your family.
