Jessica H. - Seeking Work in New Fairfield

I have worked with several families who had children ranging from 10 months to 13 years old. I stayed with most of these families for at least a year. Caring for children is extremely special to me. I do not have children of my own, so I live vicariously through other families, taking care of their children as if they were my very own. In the past I have been 100% loyal, reliable and dedicated to each family I have worked for. Two of the families had three children, one ages 6, 11 and 13, and the other, 10 months, 4 and 11. The most special experience I had was with a family that had a 10 month old boy, and a 4 year old boy...the children and I were able to base a wonderful relationship built on love, caring, mutual respect, kindness and trust. I am always prompt and reliable, so the children know that they can count on me to be there as an addition to the family.

I cared for children of all ages from the age of 19 through my early thirties. At the age of 32 I decided to focus on senior care, which I have been doing for the last 7 years. Ideally I would like to return to childcare.

I have worked in various childcare positions as a nanny. I spent 8 years as a day nanny and 5 years as a live in Nanny. And while some people say that it is possible to "burn out" and let childcare become "just another job" I do not see it that way. I find every child to be different and unique with his or her very own personality and talents. My goal is to help them grow, flourish and to keep them safe at all cost. I have grown very close to all the families that I have worked for in the past and still keep in contact with all the children I cared for, because I grew to love them and my time with them was not just a job, but an investment in their lives.
