My past childcare experience(s) were with two families in my neighborhood and one family out in Charlton. I stared babysitting my neighbors two kids when they were newborns to the ages of 4 and 6. I would watch them sometimes 3 days a week plus weekends for date nights. Without them really asking, I would wash the dishes in the sink, do simple cleaning chores and clean up the play room. I would take them out for walks, make them dinner and put them to bed at the correct time. The kids were sound asleep by the time the parents got home, which always made them happy. Back in 2007 I have offered my babysitting survives to my other neighbor for her two girls; at the time ages 4 months and two. She hired me quickly and within a month I have developed a family-like bond with the kids. Two years later she had another baby and I was excited to be babysitting the two girls along with a newborn! If the kids were outside I would walk down the street to play with them and even help Mom out with the baby. Every now and then the kids would still ask if I'm available to visit, which touches my heart. A couple of years ago I would babysit a family out in Charlton. They had two kids and they were ages 4 and 6 months. I then started babysitting about 3x a week in the summer while the parents were at work.

I am interested in receiving the Nanny position you are seeking to fill. I have over 5 years of combined diverse working and educational experience, that has contributed to the wide range of skills that I have gained and seek to refine through a professional nanny position. The opportunity this position has to offer is exactly what a driven and passionate individual such as myself needs to combine and utilize the knowledge I have gained from my experiences in teaching. I would be beyond ecstatic and honored to be a considered candidate for this opportunity to extend my background in a new and healthy environment. I have 5 years of experience teaching and working with students that has given me a thorough understanding of what it takes to organize and manage a classroom, lesson plan, and foster positive character development and self-esteem. I also have non-teaching related work experience such as being a Resident Mentor and a Executive Office Manager for the Housing Director that has also given me a heavy background in working comfortably and professionally with students and parents. These positions taught me the ability to be creative in planning for student activities/programming, as well as how to solicit and use resources to benefit me and my students. The Resident Mentor position specifically, required me to have a multitude of leadership skills as I was required to present and cover programming initiatives, deal with personal matters discretely, and delegate issues amongst students living in the dorms. As an Art Education college graduate with a vibrant personality I have a fresh and creative methods for working with children. I am very knowledgeable of what it takes to be a nanny, and with my background I am well groomed for this position. I believe that this opportunity would be the best next step for me to take in my employment journey. For the past 5 years I have been a nanny for a single mother. I have worked with her son since he was 2 years old.

Hi there! My name is Laura, and I am a 24-year-old mother to a wonderful 19-month-old little boy. I am a former Behavioral Therapist and nanny, turned stay-at-home mom. I'm looking to get back into nannying - either at your home or mine. I want to bring my son along with me, as I think it's a great learning experience for both your child/ren, and mine! Also, more fun for all of us! Its also important to me to take advantage of every second I can spend with my son, so nannying again will really be perfect for us in so many ways! My son used to attend daycare while I worked, so he's very comfortable being with other children, and does a great job playing, socializing, and sharing attention! In January of 2010, I started nannying full-time for a professional couple with an adorable 3-month-old boy. I was with this family right up until my son was born in October 2012. Both parents are available to speak with you and give both a personal and professional reference. After all, nannying is a very personal job, so while employers get to know me on a professional level, they also become family and there is certainly a very personal relationship as well. In addition, references are available from other former babysitting employers, and of course my most recent place of employment where I worked as a Behavioral Therapist. I truly love what I do. I love children, I love teaching them, and watching them grow. Being a mother is the most rewarding job in the world, but being a part of other children's lives is a close second. I am so passionate about education and fulfilling children's developmental, emotional, social, and academic needs. I look forward to speaking with you, and am so eager to find another great family to work for!
