Hi, my name is Monica. I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about work experience with children. I hope that after reading my profile, you will take me into consideration and give me the opportunity to interview with you. I have been working with children, ages ranging from newborns to 7yrs of age, for about seven years. I have also babysat my nephews and cousins, ages ranging from newborns to 16 yrs of age. I have worked with 3 beautiful families in the past 10 years. My husband has been relocated to Louisiana. I worked in Keller,Tx with the Schwartz family taking care of Sydney and Hunter. I was hired to take care of them when she was only 3 months old and Hunter 5 years old. I make it my mission to spend quality time with the children. I plan activities for them such as arts and crafts. I divide out the day between reading time, music time, naptime, and outside activities (when the weather allows it). I also teach them Spanish (my native language). I am very passionate about working with children. My priority is teaching children new things and helping them develop their learning skills.

Crystal J. - Seeking Work in Lake Charles

Hello, my name is Crystal. I am a 20-year-old college student. I'm currently an education major, and I eventually want a certification in social services. I love kids, and have my own transportation as well. I have five siblings who I have helped with since the age of eight. I also have experience babysitting neighborhood children throughout high school. I recently worked as a part time employee in a childcare atmosphere. I worked there for over a year. The childcare is inside of a gym facility and I have cared for children from the ages of six weeks to 11 years old, no more than 15 at a time by myself. Though I am not quite ready to have my own children at this age, I couldn't imagine not doing what I do everyday. I hope you will consider me in your search for the right caregiver for your children!
