Danielle W. - Seeking Work in Wichita

I was previously a nanny for a family that had three children one of them having Down Syndrome. The mother was a single mom and I was working with the children for over 50+ hours a week. I picked up all of the children from daycare and school as well as taught the youngest who was Down Syndrome how to write her name as well as how to be potty trained. I helped with all of the children's homework and extensive house work. I was also a babysitter for two years from when the child was born until he was two and preformed all duties that were required per mothers order.

I have been doing childcare for a long time. It started with caring for my brother and sister. I'm 8 years older than my brother and 6 years older than my sister. I've been babysitting them since I can remember. I have also volunteered in our church nursery. Last year I had a babysitting job where I took part in watching a 2 month old baby girl, with her 2 year old and 3 year old brother. My latest experience with childcare was subbing for two people I knew that had daycares. There has been multiple times I have subbed at the daycare and watched 8+ kids all under the age of 6 while she ran errands all day. I absolutely love working with children and would love to find a family to nanny for.

Well, I have never been a nanny but have babysat for a family down the street from where I grew up starting at the age of eleven. I have always been good with children, and at my church I always helped to provide childcare during services. I've lived with a couple different families with children in my adulthood and have cared for, cooked for, and cleaned up after. The most recent family I've helped had a child as young as 1 and the oldest is five with one in the middle, 3, and she has one more on the way. I love them like my precious niece and nephew who are around those ages as well.
