Judy L. - Seeking Work in Gainesville

17.14 / hour

I owned my own child care for 17 years and also have worked as a private nanny for families. I love children and they love me. I have been doing this for a long time..over 30 years for others. I raised 4 boys of my own (so of course I love sports) and am a grandmother of a 22 year old granddaughter and a 20 year old grandson. I prefer to work in or not too far a distance from Gainesville, Ga. I love caring for babies and newborns. Most childcare professionals don't want to but I love it. It's nice to be able to start with a child when they are babies and be a part of their life as they grow. As a child gets older I love helping them learn, watching things on tv or programs on tape/dvd (music also) that help them learn and children's programs or movies that are fun. I really enjoy reading to them and as they are able letting them read to me. I enjoy doing fun activities with them. I am a great swimmer and used to teach swimming. I also taught the children all they needed to begin kindergarden including their phonics and how to read. Most of the children going to kindergarden from my Child Care were thought to be of above average intelligence because they were already reading and knew so much. The truth is that they just got a great head start. I am a Christian.

I am new to the Gainesville area and just returned home in June from serving overseas as a missionary for the last year. Prior to that, I worked part time as a nanny for 2 families. The first family has a daughter that just turned 3, whom I began watching when she was just 1-month-old. The second family has 2 children that were 3 and 5 months old (when I began working for them). I would usually keep the children all day on the days that I worked (Breakfast/lunch/dinner/bath and bed time) do light housekeeping and some errands, including taking them to swimming lessons and activities outside of the home. I have a Bachelor's in Human Services, but really prefer working with children!

I've been a nanny on and off throughout my teens. I've watched kids from all different age groups, ranging from less than a year to 12 years old. I love children and being around them makes my days complete. I try to watch my nephew 2 days throughout the week as my sister lost her first child to SIDS. Spending time with this little guy just puts a smile on my face. My husband is active duty in the Army and is gone frequently, so something to keep me occupied is wonderful. We live in Gainesville and had a little girl on October 28th.
