Hope B. - Seeking Work in Honolulu

14.28 / hour

I have done occasional babysitting since the age of 15 and began nannying in college. I worked (technically it was for class credit) for a year in the toddler program at the childcare center at UC Davis during my third year as a student there. While there got my first nanny job with 5 1/2 year old twin girls who had mild special needs. Over the next few years I worked with four other families with twins in varying capacities, as a nanny, mother's helper and/or babysitter. I have performed various duties for each family depending on the situation. I've done everything from changing diapers and potty training, to folding laundry and cooking for the family... it all depends on the situation and what the family needs. . All of the families I worked for were in Davis, CA but I moved to Palo Alto (in the San Francisco bay area) in June of 2009 where I took a job at a childcare center in Palo Alto as an infant teacher. I loved the children in my class, but I was not impressed by the company I worked for and the way this center was run. When my boyfriend received a job offer in Honolulu at the beginning of 2010, I thought it might be a great time for me to find something new here. I worked for a year and a half at a small non-profit, parent directed center downtown for about a year and a half, but unfortunately it closed at the end of Sept due to financial troubles. .

I first started caring for infant cousins while in high school before moving to professional babysitting. Back in 2004 to 2005, I ran a day care taking care of six children, ages 1 to 10 in IN. From there I babysat for twin toddlers and a 5 year old when my family moved to IL, as well as assisted in caring for three infants, from newborn to 9 months of age. When that family moved away 3 years later, I went on to being a live in nanny for a family with 4 children, aged newborn to 12 when I started. I stayed there for 3 years until the family moved to Georgia. I then accepted a position in Ohio for six months with a 4 year old daughter. After the family separated from their employment, and informed me they no longer needed me services. I have also been a live in nanny for an 8 year old for a year and a half in North Carolina, then worked as a babysitter here in Hawaii, caring for up to 8 children at one time, aging from 9 months to 12 years old. I have experience with 2 sets of twins, one set who where also preemies. I have worked with children with ADHD, Bi polar disorder, and depressive/anxiety disorders. In addition, I've dealt with CP, autism, and developmentally behind children, and am comfortable with any special needs a child would have. I am able to assist in early learning development of toddlers, such as ABC's, learning to speak and increasing vocabulary, counting, simple math, recognizing colors and shapes, and learning nursery rhymes and songs. I have also taught a three year old to read and write, and have experience with teaching children the proper social skills they need to function successfully in school and other social settings. I am also comfortable working with and around older children and assisting them with their homework.

My name is Ashley, and I am an active, energetic, organized, caring, responsible college senior. I currently live in Saint Paul, Minnesota however I am planning a move to Oahu between June and August of this year. I have over 10 years of childcare experience and I am currently working with two local families, both of which can be contacted for reference. For the last several years I have worked as a part-time certified personal trainer and a part-time nanny. I have previous experience working for a family for six years and have a letter of recommendation available to view. I am CPR and AED certified. I drive a fully insured 2011 Chevy Aveo and have a good driving record. I am also Red Cross certified as a babysitter (a course I took several years ago) although I now consider myself a nanny because of the unique skill set I have developed over the last several years of working with children. I love children and hope to start a family of my own after school and I believe that while providing child care for families, I am being trusted with their most precious assets and that I should put as much care and focus into my work as possible. I am looking to form another long lasting relationship of trust with a family in Hawaii and hope I am who you are looking for to care for your children.
