I have been a child care professional for the past three years with eight years of additional experience as well as currently pursing a degree in Elementary Education. I have been a full time, live in Au Pair, full time and part time nanny, and babysitter and I have several references from the families in which I have worked for. I love children and have experience working with multiples, children with disabilities, and sick children. I love every child and family that I am able to work with as if they were my own. Safety, compassion, and fun are my main priorities and I always come prepared with a positive attitude and mindset. My previous child care position was a full time live in au pair for a newborn and 18 months old (by the end were 6 months and two) where I was responsible for feedings, bed time routines, sleep schedules, laundry, housework, as well as achieving developmental milestones with the children through education. In addition, one of my previous child care positions includes being a full time nanny for a five year old boy where I was responsible for transporting him to and from school, taking him on playdates, meal preparation, and fun and educational activities. I am a highly qualified professional who loves children and is very experienced.

My name is Stephanie. I am 24 years old and a graduate from Eastern Connecticut State University, where I studied Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. I come from a family of 7 and have been surrounded by children of all ages my entire life. I began babysitting for neighborhood kids starting at the age of 12 and continued babysitting throughout high school for infants to 10-year-old children. I worked in my senior year at a daycare, mainly with infants and toddlers. I am a volunteer at my church's Vacation Bible School each summer where I teach preschoolers. I have also been a certified Lifeguard, certified in First Aid, CPR, Bloodborne Pathogens, waterfront supervision and rescue skills. I am also a Red Cross certified babysitter. During college, I cared for a 2-year-old and newborn 25 plus hours a week. After college, I worked for a nanny agency and independently as a nanny. I love working with kids and would love the opportunity to care for your children!
