Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I have been working with children since I have been a child myself. I started off babysitting for family and friends when I was younger and worked my way up to be a lead toddler teacher and a part time nanny and mother's helper. Working with children is my passion and I put my full heart into my work. While I babysit or nanny I keep the children entertained by creating games and doing crafts or activities. As an Early Childhood Educator, my job is very important. I have had up to 8 toddlers by myself in one day whom I have potty trained at the same time by myself. I constantly keep them busy and making learning fun for them!

I have had much experience in childcare. I have been working with kids since the age of twelve, when I started babysitting multiple families. I have worked in a preschool setting as an assistant preschool teacher and also haven been an Ed Tech III, working with children on improving behavior. I have also worked as a camp counselor with children ranging from ages 4-12 years old. I currently work as an Infant/Toddler/Preschool Teacher and am licensed by EEC. I have enjoyed all of my experiences working with many different children. Because of my joy of working with kids, I am pursuing a masters degree in Counselor Education. I think that with each experience in childcare, my abilities have on increased as a positive role model and caretaker for kids.

I started babysitting for cousins when I was about 9 or 10, and had regular baby-sitting jobs soon after through my teenage years. During my third year of college, I started nannying while completing my education and began to look at nannying as a career choice. I haven't regretted it. I have had so many experiences, mostly good, and some not so good, but in the end it has shaped me in to what I believe to be a good nanny, and house manager, today. I have worked for single parents, families with infants, families with children running hot and cold through the front and back doors. I have worked in a school as a , assisting teachers in Kindergarten classes through the fifth grade. House Management has also become a part of my duties over the years as well- grocery shopping, menu planning, organization, gift shopping and wrapping (though I'm really not great at it. I am so thankful for reusable gift bags and tissue paper!). I've had an enjoyable time doing what I have been doing for almost two thirds of my life and look to continue doing so.

Hourly rate20.00 / hour

I worked with a family with 4 kids for about 4 years, and babysat a lot of children in my hometown. I started out as a mother's helper and ended as a nanny who was responsible for getting the kids on and off the bus from school and making them dinner along with a "to do" list to finish up that consisted of cleaning and taking the kids to the pool etc. I stopped working with the family because I moved to Arlington. The kids and I always had a blast, but also got all our homework and chores done!
