As a Child Care Provider and teacher for the last 20+ years, I have been responsible for children of all ages and needs; and have gained a considerable amount of experience in helping each age level develop appropriately and acclimate to a social and structured learning environment. I love learning with children and their families; and watching them grows. I also bring an Associates Degree, in Early Childhood Education from Ashford University. I am also a graduate of Ashford University’s Bachelor’s Program where I majored in Early Childhood Education and with my minor being Child Development. I am a firm believer that any place caring for and empowering children needs responsible and dependable employees. I not only love and enjoy children, but I realize that nurturing our young is a very important job. Our children need a safe and caring environment where they can learn and grow. Parents need to feel confident that caretakers will provide close supervision, creative activities, and nutritional food for their children. I am a person you and the parents can count on to provide consistently excellent care, as was the case in my previous positions. I hope to have the opportunity to meet with you in person and discuss how I will meet your needs for the position. You can contact me at the above listings. Thank you for considering me for this position. I look forward to discussing the position with you in person.

Dear Prospective Family: I am writing to formally introduce myself and to express my desire to work as a full time child care provider and nanny. I have worked in the childcare industry for the past several years and I consider myself to be a dedicated professional that seeks to enrich the lives of young impressionable children. I have found childcare to be a very rewarding experience. I love children and enjoy their company immensely and find nothing is more rewarding than taking care of them. I believe in creating a positive, happy environment for children, one in which they feel protected and can thrive. I have good organizational and communication skills, which I believe are among the most important skills for a childcare provider or nanny. I feel I would be a good fit for your family because I not only enjoy working with children, but I think your child and I have developed a bond that will make learning easier. Taking care of young children, especially babies, is rewarding but sometimes challenging. Over the years, I have developed special techniques that prove useful in calming young babies, including the most restless ones. I am in favor of a structured day as it gives children an opportunity to follow a schedule and to learn and understand discipline. In my current job: All my employers, including my present employer, have been happy with my work and have often complemented me on my expertise in taking care of young children. I completed a CPR and First Aid training before I took my current job as a child care provider and have since then kept my certifications up to date. I believe such knowledge is important and can be a life saver in case of an injury or accident. Some of my hobbies include modeling, traveling and fashion. I do plan to further my education in the upcoming year. I am currently getting a degree in early childhood development. I am happy to talk with you further about child care opportunities. Thank you for your time. Respectfully, Jordayn

I have baby-sat regularly since age 13 for children age 0-12. I completed a 3-year Vocational and Child Guidance program during High School where I studied Child Development and acquired hands-on experience in the Laboratory Nursery School. During the summers, I provided primary care for two children (starting when the children were 9 months old and 8 years old). In college, I studied Psychology and Child Development as well as worked with children in school and home settings. During the summer of 2007, I worked as an Au Pair for a family in Switzerland. After college, I worked with children with mental health issues ranging from Autism to Oppositional Defiant Disorder in their home, school, or community. I provided intense therapeutic support to the child in specified areas of social, behavioral, developmental, and emotional needs. During the summer of 2008 (and 2011) I nannied full time for a family that I still keep in touch with and visit regularly. I also have experience with multiples.

We are seeking a new family to join our 18 month old son in our nanny share in late summer (Aug) or early fall (Sept).

Our current arrangement is 8:15 am-5:45 pm Monday-Friday, although we have flexibility there. We are working with an experienced and terrific nanny, Elizabeth, who has worked in prior nanny shares and was highly recommended to us by her previous family. She is terrific -- always attentive to the little ones, always planning craft projects and fun activities and outings for them. She speaks Spanish and Portuguese as well as perfect English. She is legal to work in the US. Our partner family is only leaving the share because they were offered a daycare spot at their first-choice preschool, and are happy to serve as a reference.

We host the share at our home in Dupont (near 17th and S), which is
fully equipped for two little ones with plenty of space to play and is in close walking distance to Stead and Mitchell Parks. We would like to continue hosting the share at our home, but are open to other
