I have been babysitting since age 11. I have always loved kids. I was the type of kid growing up who was friends with the older kids as well as the younger kids around me. So I love to embrace every age group and pull out the qualities that each age has to offer and bring to the table. I've watched single child families all the way to families of 6. I don't play favorites and give each child an equal amount of love and care. I try to create an environment where each age group in the family can form together and play where everyone feels included and has a blast. Structure is very important to me so I encourage the kids who have homework/chores to get that done first and then the rest of the time is open for fun and creative activities. I'm very good at making sure the kids eat a balanced meal. Nutrition always comes before snacks and water before sugar drinks and I try and educate the kids and give the why behind why we want to put healthy nutrition in our bodies. I love to read with the kids I've worked with and always try to do other outdoor or creative activities instead of resorting to the Tv. I believe I'm highly qualified due to the years of experience I have.

My name is Corey, I am twenty three years old. I have basically lived in Danbury, CT all my life. I am a very positive, and easy going person. I feel you can make the best out of any situation. My main goal as of right now is to find a live-in nanny job and work for at least a year to a year and a half so I can save up enough money to serve an LDS church mission. After that my goals are to go to college where I plan to major in marketing and sales, and find a wife and start a family of my own. I come from a huge family of four younger sisters, and six cousins. I am the oldest and the only boy in my immediate family. I enjoy spending as much time as I can with my family, I have had a huge part to do with the raising of my sisters, I always enjoyed teaching them new things and watching them progress. For example was teaching one of my younger sisters Maria how to walk. I have been babysitting my sisters since I can remember and always enjoyed doing it. I feel that when I have kids of my own I will have a bit of a head start. I also enjoy coaching children's hockey. Reason why I enjoy it so much is because I love teaching kids new things and showing them their full potential and showing them that if they put their mind to it they can accomplish anything they want. I would like to be a nanny cause I feel I have a lot to offer a family. I am a great role model for kids, and would be a great older brother type figure. I thank you for taking the time to read this and hope to hear from you. Thank You, Corey

I have been babysitting since I was 12 years old, working with the ages of newborn to the teenage years. I love children and I always have been around children growing up. My mom was a preschool teacher while I was growing up so I would see her interact with children. It was so great to have such an inspirational mentor growing up. I started watching children from the young age of twelve, for multiple families in my neighborhood. I also took on a nanny job when I was in school for my associates degree for a one year old baby, I would spend my day with her taking care of her needs(breakfast, nap and lunch) while going on walks with her and creating other activities for us to do. I also babysat for several other families at the same time all which exposed me to interacting with children of all ages and children's multiple moods that they have. This past year I had two nanny experiences one with a four month old and the other with a family of three(11 year old, 3 year old and 1 year old). Each of the experiences allowed me to create a bond with each child and learn very valuable lessons from them. I would create activities and crafts for us to participate in while I was there, I am a huge arts and crafts person and I believe that arts are very beneficial for the child. I encourage and motivate the child to participate in creating projects with me that will allow them to learn while it not feeling much like a lecture. I believe art is an excellent tool for learning and that it has many positive benefits.

For the past 6+yrs I was a nanny for 2 wonderful boys, now ages 7 & 5. I was there the day the youngest was born and held him at only 10hrs old...we just celebrated his 5th bday with a special pizza date. I watched them both grow from giggly little babies into the amazing and smart young boys that they are. We went on many fun adventures, learned new things and had fun experiences everyday. We would read stories, do arts and crafts, play all sorts of games inside and out. I love to cook and try new foods. I even make my own baby food. I like to get the kids involved in cooking, I've found that they are a little more willing to try new foods when they had a part of it. I loved watching the boys grow up everyday. It was wonderful to see the look in their eyes as the accomplished new things. I've dealt with allergic reactions, asthma, stitches and high fevers. I do my best to make sure that when sick or hurt they are comfortable and feel better as soon as possible. I would love to talk with you more about all of my experiences and families. All the families that I have been with have become part of my family.

I have extensive personal and professional experience in the child care field. Growing up in a large family, I was constantly learning and taking care of younger children. I have been babysitting my younger cousins and friends of the family for the past eight years, and I have been caring for them during extended period of times when parent's were out of town or on vacations for the past 4 years. I am proficient in caring for ages two to fourteen, and am confident in my experience of child care duties and home duties, including, but not limited to: transportation, homework/tutoring, kitchen duties and food prep, cleaning, light housework, laundry, and morning and evening routines.
