My name is Elizabeth, I am 19 years old and very interested in your job posting. I was a professional nanny in Illinois for 9 years, and I am looking to start a fulltime position beginning immediately. I currently live in Lakewood, CO, off of Kipling and Mississippi. A little bit of my history, I was a nanny for a family of 4 for 8 years. I watched each child, now 15, 8, 5, and 3, grow since the now 8 year old was 6 months and the 5 and 3 year old were newborns up until I moved here to Colorado in March of 2014. I also cared for family friends' children, ages 4 and 2, familys' children, twins age 6 months to 3 years of age and siblings, newborns to 3 years old. I also assisted with potty training for most of these families, and absolutely loved the experience of growing with each family. Overall, I have lots of experience, with no issues meeting your requirements, and I know I'm the best for your family! I am a licensed driver, I am CPR certified and a lifeguard, as well as have a clean driving record. I have extensive experience, especially with infants, and extreme flexibility with my schedule. I am available to start immediately, short notice or not. I'd be happy to provide references, as well as meet or chat on the phone. You won't be disappointed, and I truly believe I am the best nanny for your family. Looking forward to hearing from you, and best wishes in your search!

I have a bachelors degree in Family and Consumer Science-Early Childhood Development, this along with my many years of experience have taught me that consistency helps children to learn boundaries and become confident in their surroundings. Young children learn from each experience, weather it is reading books or counting while out on a walk! Forming positive secure relationships is one of the most important thing an infant can learn. Providing them with a loving, consistent environment where they feel safe to explore, will help them to grow, develop, and thrive. I have worked with many different families, some I have stayed with for two or more years. I feel it is important for me to be adaptable with families. The families I am with are my first priority, I want to help families be able to spend time together. I am very dependable and reliable, I have a record of not missing more then one day a year. (I credit all the kid germs for building up my immune system.) I appreciate a family that is friendly, caring, and communicative. I will spend a lot of time with your children so it is usually a very close relationship.

Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

Prior to moving to Colorado in July, I was a lead infant/toddler teacher for a district run daycare in South Dakota for nearly two years. I also babysat extensively for some of those families requiring meal preparation, bedtime, homework, etc. I come from a large family so have helped take care of children infant to school age. I have no children and am not married so my schedule is open to your needs. Also, as my family is 12 hours away, I only travel twice a year (once every 6 months for a couple days) so will not need to be absent often. I'm CPR/First aid certified and hold a technical diploma in child development.

I have been babysitting since I was to do the math quickly that is about 9.5 years. I have worked consistently with several families and therefore have been able to see their children grow up into amazing young men and women. I almost had the opportunity to work with a beautiful eleven year old girl this year nannying for her each morning.
