Alexis P. - Seeking Work in Berwyn

Hourly rate20.00 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

My name is Alexis, I am 23 (turning 24 Oct 29) and I am looking to be a full time nanny. I have babysat children, mainly cousins, since I was 10. When my Godson was born (now 3) I watched him for weekends at a time alone as early as when he was weeks old. I have experience with changing diapers, feeding, bathing, meal prepping, bottle prepping, burping, changing, and interacting with children. Recently I started to occasionally babysit for family friends, at the most 2 kids at a time (2yr old and 6yr old). I currently hold a full time position at a media company downtown, but have decided to follow my passion in child care. I went to DePaul University, majoring in journalism with a minor in women's and gender studies. I am a professional, reliable, mature, responsible, and hard working person. I love children of all ages and would consider myself caring, nurturing, compassionate, humble, intelligent, passionate, positive, and fun loving. Most of this I gathered from relatives who have had me watch their children.

I was a nanny for a family of two boys ages five and ten years old. My responsibilities were to watch them five to six days a week, nine to ten hours a day depending on the need of the family. I made the children breakfast and lunch and took them to the swimming pool, library and anywhere else that would keep children happy. Once a week I would take the children someplace educational, such as the aquarium or science museum. At the end of the work day, I made sure the house was kept clean.
