Elise Morgan
    - Seeking Work in Boston

Full-time hours
6 yrs of experience

My name is Elise and I am a 23-year-old professional nanny. I have years and years of experience taking care of children (and animals) of all ages. I used to be a theater camp counselor during the summer and I coach volleyball as well.

I am originally from Boston, but have spent the last few years travelling around. I am now headed back to Boston and will be there for years to come.

I am fun, caring, and watchful. I know how important development and learning is for younger children and am a very creative nanny. I love the outdoors, reading, art, and music. I am also an athlete, and I graduated at the top of my class and was a great student. I also have twins experience!

Some of my favorite activities to do with the children I take care of are going to parks, trips to museums, reading, sensory play, dancing, singing, listening to and playing music, and many more. I make it a point to get the children in my care out of the house for age appropriate activities, every single day (except for newborns of course)

I have attended National Nanny Training day, have received my Credentialed Nanny certification from the International Nanny Association, and will be undergoing training to become a CPST (Child Passenger Safety Technician). I also have college coursework in early childhood education.

I am first aid and CPR certified for infants/toddlers/children/adults. I also have my own safe vehicle (2014 Nissan Rogue) and have experience driving children.

I come from a very large family so I was raised with knowing how to care for children my entire life. One of my cousins has spina bifida and is wheel chair bound and I have taken care of her many, many times. I also have lived with a family of 4, single Mom who's husband passed away in Iraq to assist her with her 3 children as well as had numerous babysitting positions with different families throughout the years when needed. I previously worked at 2 different after school programs, one in Brooklyn and another in Manhattan with children ranging from five years of age to 12 years of age. Being a part of those programs I also have experience in homework help with grades K-6th. I also have worked for summer programs, one being a stay away camp and another that was a daily program in which included educational activities as well as trips to local parks, museums where we'd take the subway as a program, and extra-curricular like sports and art & crafts. This past November I graduated from college abroad in Sydney, Australia, previous to college I worked for the NYPD and have most recently moved to Boston. I have had classes in CPR as well as had background checks done in which I have been cleared to work children, if necessary I am willing to retake CPR and first aid classes. I do not drive, but am willing to transport via public transportation.

Hello, My name is Shanetta Holder. I’m 26 years old , finishing up my senior year so I’ll be a Suffolk University College graduate which is exciting. I study broadcast journalism hoping to one day travel the world and venture the different exotic Caribbean islands. I want to be able to share my experiences with my loved ones and the world. Right now, I live in Roslindale with my two loving grandparents who are very special to me. They always expected me to be great and that’s what I intend to be. I’m very punctual, reliable, caring, a protector and friendly. Oh & I can’t forget I LOVE KIDS. I grew up taking care of all of my 4 siblings being the only girl & granddaughter. My aunts knew who to ask when they needed a sitter and I was there of course. I watched all of my baby cousins and of course being a SITTER came to my liking. I loved the company and made sure fun was always in the picture. But most of all knowing the I was a younger child’s Role model and inspiration was why I decided to take on a NANNY ROLE. I’ll soon be expecting my own and think this is a great way to experience what its like being a Full time Mom, Caretaker and Provider.

Hello, my name is Charlotte and I am 38 years old. I have been working as a nanny for over 8 years. Being a parent at a young age has taught me patience; how to listen and care for someone other then myself. What I enjoy doing the most with kids for activities are reading books that are age appropriate, arts & crafts, going to the playground and exploring in and around the Boston area, whether it's by walking, driving or taking public transportation. I enjoyed taking kids to the local library for story time, museums and walking trails around the city. My prior and present experience with children has taught me to be responsible, dependable, kindhearted and I'm very flexible. Some of the duties that apply to my job are cooking, errands laundry, light cleaning and organizing.
