Bethany M. - Seeking Work in Hartford

Hourly rate10.10 / hour

A majority of my experience caring for children has been a result of my own role as an aunt of four nieces and four nephews, one of whom is mildly autistic. Being an aunt is one of the most rewarding experiences I have been blessed with, especially when I am presented with the opportunity to care for them. Besides fulfilling my "auntie" duty, I have had the chance to work as a babysitter throughout high school primarily for neighbors and friends. I have also been privileged to work with a wide range of children from ages 2-14 as a volunteer with one of my community's local non-profits. Typically, as a volunteer I babysit for mothers who are attending support groups and facilitate activities for the older children.

I was the kind of student in both high school and college who enjoyed babysitting and child care. This was long before the notion of an "au pair" was widely known in this country. I enjoyed feeling like a useful "auxiliary" member of the families I assisted and helped many families while both in high school and college, eventually getting to the point with several families where they were comfortable going away on business trips and leaving me completely in charge of the running of their households. Then, in my 20's I married and had my first son, now 18. A few years passed and my second child, Rowan, who is now 9 was born. I have always been a very hands-on mother and active in my children's schools. I am interested in all aspects of child development and well-versed in contemporary child-rearing philosophies and practices. I respect the individual "style" of a family and try to support what they are already doing, rather than to imprint my own ideas and style on to them, though I am always willing to pitch in and/or offer suggestions if it feels like my help would be useful or well-received.

My childcare experiences have always been pleasent ones due to the fact that I love children. If my love for them did not exist, it would be hard to even think of childcare as being fun. With infants I can feed, change diapers, as well as bathe and interact with them. The same goes for toddlers. School-age children tend to be difficult at times but I have learned to just interact with them as if they are adults but to keep in mind that they are children.
