Hannah F. - Seeking Work in Simsbury

Hourly rate11.42 / hour

I have been a babysitter, mother's helper, and nanny for the past 6 years for a few different families who I really grew close with. Most of my experience is with infants and toddlers, but I am also very comfortable caring for older children as well. While babysitting I enjoy going outside and playing games or other activities, as well as more low key activities such as reading.

I have pervious experience with child care. I have been working as a ski instructor since 2011. As a ski instructor I was not only a role model for younger children but also taught people of many ages how to ski and how to improve their skiing. I was responsible for the safety of the lesson and people around me. I also worked as teachers aide. As a teachers aide I was responsible for children between the ages of 6 weeks and 12 years old. As a teachers' aide I also was responsible for putting the children to sleep, giving them lunch and snack, changing diapers, and keeping them entertained.

I started off as a Red Cross certified babysitter when I was 11 years old and continued to babysit into my early 20’s. Between the ages of 11 and 15 I volunteered at a local summer camp for mentally and physically challenged individuals between the ages of 3 to 21. I assisted the counselors with their daily activities and schedule planning including; art activities, educational activities, fitness activities and socialization skills. Between the ages of 16 and 20 I worked in two separate day care programs in my home town of Glastonbury, CT. The first facility I worked in was The Stork Club, where I was an assistant teacher for the three year old preschool class for the first year of employment. For the remaining 6 months I worked closing with the “step up” group which where children in the age range between infant and toddler, about 14 to 26 months. The second facility I worked at was KinderCare, where I worked solely in the “step up” room for my entire one and a half years of employment. Within both of these facilities and the different classrooms, I would assist with planning and implementing daily activities which were always within the NAEYC guidelines. Activities included; reading and quite time, group activity, art, music, and large and fine motor skill activities, along with, of course, meal time, nap time, recess, and within the “step up” rooms, also working on potty training skills. I was also responsible in monitoring and documenting the children’s progress in the program, and working closely with the parents to keep them informed and updated of their child’s progress. Currently I work at a daycare facility in Avon, CT working with infants and young toddlers ages 6 weeks to about 16 months. I feel the involvement in early childhood education through my teen years is the driving force which is inspiring me to complete my college credentials and make this my career. I truly love working with children of all ages, inspiring their young minds to be thoughtful, creative, inventive and curious of the world around them.

As soon as my cousins were born six years ago I began babysitting! From watching Dora The Explorer to playing Wii, I've always had a love for children! I've babysat up to four children at a time and up to three or four days a week. Also, I've stayed over night with children while their parents went out. A few years ago I helped out a family friend who held a daycare inside of her home. I helped feed the children and put them down for naps as well as playing games and swimming in a small swimming pool.
