I have been helping to raise children since I was the oldest child of four. In my youth I was a lifeguard and swim instructor and did volunteer work with children. I was a babysitter during my teens. My BS degree was in Family & Child Development. I worked in the school nurseries and did an internship at the girl's youth development center (prison). While working on my Masters Degree of Social Work I helped start a home visitation/education program for new mom's, lead a Parents Annymous Group and was a coleader in an outdoor challenge group for challenged teens. I saw children and families for counseling. I have taught professionals in their corporate settings about issues regarding children. And then 10 years ago I left that world and became a nanny of a 6 month old for a week while a friend's nanny went on vacation. When that nanny didn't return I said I wanted the 20 hours that she had had. By the next year I was taking care of another infant part time. When these 2 positions ended at the same time (the 1st child started school & the 2nd child moved) I cleared my calendar and took on a full time job. I was with Ella since she was 3 months old full time until she started 1st grade. On a part time basis here in Florida I worked for a father who had split custody for 3 girls 4, 6, and 8 yrs old. I am looking for full time work.

If you're looking for someone to be engaging, educational, and loving, then you've found her! My experience caring for children totals approximately 7 years. This includes volunteer experience at a local elementary extended day program where I was a Jr. Counselor for grades pre-K to 3rd for about 4 years. I've also cared for children ranging in age from newborns to 8 years old. While watching my charges, I was responsible for finding a variety of fun yet enriching activities for them to complete. These activities varied based upon age and the child's own personality. I've cared for children with a variety of illnesses, from jaundice to colic to reflux. I believe that I have been so successful with my childcare experiences in the past for a variety of reasons. However, the most notable reason is that I'm the type of person who can be very sensitive to a child's needs. I believe this is most assuredly due to my own personality of being a kind, compassionate, and loving individual.

Good Afternoon. My name is Alexa, and I am writing to express my interest in the job you posted on Care.com. Due to my experience and extensive skill set, I believe that I could be an exceptional nanny for your family. Since I have been working for the past seven years, I have had the ability to work with a variety of children. Prior to moving to Jacksonville, I worked for the Hagen family. The youngest of the three children had a variety of medical complications, as well as Downs Syndrome. On an average day, I had to ensure the home was always a clean and safe for Lucas. In addition to that, I would prepare special meals, assist with changing his bag, and keep he and his siblings entertained and smiling. Another family I had the pleasure of working for consisted of three girls- a six year old, a three year old, and an infant. Here I learned about everything from sleep training to making baby food. I had never worked with such a young child before, and enjoyed it so much that I decided to minor in child development and early education. Since then, I've worked with two families that were also blessed with infants. Since living in Jacksonville I have spent the longest time working for a family with a 18 month old and a 3 year old. I have spent 8 months with them, but am looking to change positions due to a change in my salary.

I am currently a nanny for a family of three. I have been their nanny off and on since 2012, while I was in college. I am a trusted member of their family. The eldest of the three little ones is three years old. He is the most helpful and charming tot I’ve ever met and so smart. Early learning is important to me so we often include fun learning games in the early afternoon. He’s a quick as a whip and often surprises me with just how much he knows. The middle child is 15 months old and is the biggest handful. He’s a rambunctious linebacker, and speedy too! He likes to grab remotes and things when I’m making a meal or cleaning something (probably that he messed up) and take off running as soon as I discover he has it. You may not think that a little one year old hasn’t much speed but when he takes off, he’s gone. He’s also my joy. He’s got the most precious laugh that end Including the newest addition is almost unfair. Not because she only been in this world for less than a week, but because she’s just so easy to care for. She only fusses when she needs something essential like milk or needs a change or her ba-ba fell out. I can’t say the same for her two brothers who practically cried when you looked away. My duties with this family were fairly simple. Arriving after 7:30am, I get the kids fed, clothed, and started on individual activities (watching a learning program, playing a game). After they were settled I would begin with light (or heavy depending on the day, week, month) cleaning, typically finishing in time for lunch, proceeded by naptime. When the kids wake, I take them for outside time. Since mommy is home with the newborn, I can still achieve a lot of this schedule with the boys. This family made me feel at home and loved. The children call me Tee-tee with urging from their mom. I’m glad that I grew close enough with her that she entrusted me with, not only her children, but also errands. We have actually grown to be very close friends.
