I have been a part-time nanny to two children since the beginning of the school year. I am quite dependable & take the job very seriously; I have never been late nor have I needed to take a day off. I have been a stay-at-home-mother for 13 years. I have a 13-year-old who attends Catholic school & a 4-year-old who is in afternoon part-time Pre-K in Waldorf. My oldest is a 4.0 NHS student & regularly volunteers for the county. My youngest is into Batman & loves to play with anyone of any age. My youngest will accompany me if this is a morning position, which has never been an issue in the past. I also tend to do quite a bit of volunteer work for my oldest's school. Last school year I worked as both a classroom library aide & a recess aide; this year I have been volunteering for fundraising & book fairs so far. I did a lot of babysitting for family and neighbors & took babysitting classes in the past.

I started babysitting at the age of 10 years old and started being a Nanny a few months after graduating High School. In high school I took a child development course and passed with flying colors. I have been a part time nanny for 3 different families for 3 years, about 6-8 months for each position. I have a lot of experience with infants and toddlers, ages 3 months to 4 years old, but I wouldn't mind working with older children. I do offer homework help, assisting with potty training, light cleaning, meal preparation, and light laundry. I also keep a daily journal for the parents of the child's daily activities, accidents, meals, diaper changes, etc. I do have a 2-year-old son that I would like to bring to my future position, of course no extra cost with him being there. I plan on getting CPR and First Aid certified again within the next month.

My mother has owned her own day care since 1992, the year I was born. Since I was about 7 years old, I've always helped my mother with the daycare kids. We have had children from 6 months old to 12 years old. We watch kids Monday through Friday, sometimes on weekends if the parents ask us. The most children we've had to take care of were eight children every day for five days in about a year to two years. In high school I took early childhood development classes as well as cooking classes. I've babysat some of our daycare children on the weekends when their parents went out for some extra money.
