Pamela K. - Seeking Work in Hamden

22.85 / hour

Being a nanny has been my chosen career. I am not your average babysitter. Children find comfort in my presence and look at me as a parental figure. I enjoy children of all ages. I am very familiar with feedings, napping, bathing, upgrading the nipple size and the amount of formula, starting cereal, starting baby foods, what to look out for as far as allergies to new foods. I have always kept a journal of what happens during the day and have spoken to the parents during the course of the day to let them know how their children are including using Skype when they were out of the country. I have been certified in child/infant safety and CPR. I have a very flexible schedule and would be available to stay over on nights if you were on-call. I have been involved in the birth to 3 program and I am able to teach age appropriate developmental skills so that your child is ready for preschool. I have worked long term for 4 professional families over the past 20 years. Lawyers, doctors, Teachers, and High Ranking Corporate Executives. I understand the commitment you have to your employer and take my commitment to your family very seriously. I do bring so much to the table as far as experience from taking care of children of every age and participating in all of their after school and sport activities (childcare resume available).

I have worked as a nanny and sitter for more than 20 years. I am fun-loving and energetic and I genuinely enjoy caring for children. I’m also reliable, hard-working, and trustworthy, with a strong work ethic and a sharp eye for detail and organization. I’m seeking a full-time child care position (with optional light housekeeping) in a single household with one to four children. I worked as an assistant aide at a Daycare Center in New Haven, CT for a year, but most of my experience has been in private homes. I have cared for single infants, twins, and up to four children of various ages at a time. Most recently I spent 8 years keeping house and caring for the two children of a busy professional couple, and for 6 years I served as housekeeper and nanny for a single mother with two children. My duties included chauffeuring the children and running errands as well as entertaining the children and cooking. In all of my work I am dedicated to meeting the specific needs of every family I assist. I’m happy to add tasks that don’t fall strictly within the definition of child care or housekeeping if it will help you manage your time and your days better. In the event of an emergency I am quick on my feet, and will take the necessary actions that are required by the family.
