I have been working with children since I was thirteen years old. I used to baby-sit all of my neighbor's children. When I was fifteen I worked at a xx summer camp where I was a counselor and lifeguard. I was also responsible for arts and crafts at the camp for a few weeks. I worked at the camp for two years and continue to volunteer out there whenever I can. When summer camp was over in 2004 I worked at a daycare near my house where I took care of children between the ages of 6 months and 12 years. After moving to Gainesville, I got a job where I was one of the supervisors of the Childwatch program. I currently work as a nanny for a lovely five year old girl and precious 2 year old boy. I will be employed with this family until they sell their home and move due to the requirements of their jobs. I can provide references from any and all of my past childcare positions.

I am looking for a summer nannying job. I am currently a freshman at Indiana University who is living in Gainesville, FL over the summer. I had a full time nannying job last summer which I will not be returning to due to the child's old age and my move from Columbus, OH to Florida. I have also been babysitting for a family with two children for four years now for their date nights. I will have a car with me so I will be able to drive your children around. I have watched kids over a range of ages, anywhere from 2-year-olds to 12-year-olds. I am very easy to get along with, with the child's development and enjoyment in mind!

My child care experience started as a baby sitter in high school. My calling to help children started when I was the teacher's assistant for the kindergarten at my school as a senior in high school. As an adult, I have provided childcare for my baby cousin, been the children's social director at a church for a year, was den mom for my son in cub scouts, was dugout mom and am raising two intelligent, happy and healthy teenage boys. I was fortunate to be able to stay home with them in the early years, but I have also experienced the concerns of leaving them with various types of childcare situations. I fully understand the need for parents to feel their child is safe and well cared for, above all else.

Hello! I would love to tell you why I would make a great nanny for your little one. I love to make up fun activities, read, play outside, play music, play pretend, and teach children. I'm very passionate about child development and safety. I have over 4 years experience as a paid nanny. I am comfortable with long hours and providing all of the meals, baths, fun, and learning. I am accustomed to cleaning up from the day's activities, doing the child's laundry and folding, dishes, organizing, and any other needs that the potential family may have. I'm CPR and First-Aid certified with adult, pediatric and infant, and a child passenger safety technician (CPST). I also have over 100 hours volunteering at a children's hospital. I always strive to have some art activity for every holiday (Mother's Day, Father's Day, July 4, Christmas, etc.). I can play piano, bass drums, flute, clarinet, and bass clarinet. My favorite is piano and is what I am most experienced with.
