Jamie S. - Seeking Work in Bradford

22.85 / hour

I have been a childcare provider for roughly four years, with three of those being as a nanny, and I have gotten to work with children in my other years as a lifeguard and swim instructor. My first job was as an open-water lifeguard and swim instructor at a lake for three summers. This was an informative experience for me, as I learned a great deal about how to deal with crises, including those that deal with the safety and well-being of children. It also made me realize how much I enjoyed working with children and having the opportunity to teach them something that will stick with them for their whole lives. During high school, I worked as a part time babysitter both before and after school. It was my job to take care of morning routines for two elementary-aged children and make sure they got to school safely. After school, I cared for four children (two boys ages 7 and 5, and a set of boy/girl twins age 2). Both of these jobs were helpful in allowing me to hone my skills as a childcare provider (and it helped that the kids were absolutely fantastic!). For my last semester of high school, I decided to finish my required courses at a local community college, which gave me a lot of free time. I then took my first nannying job, which began as 3-4 days per week and became more frequent as the summer approached. I was with three boys, ages 5, 3 and 2 at the time of being hired. I stayed with them for about a year and then moved on to a retail job once their mother’s work hours changed and she no longer needed a nanny. Since then, I have been able to do a few babysitting jobs here and there, but have not been consistently with one family for about a year (mainly because I have been attending college full-time).
