Danielle H. - Seeking Work in Westminster

I have variety of interesting childcare experience that makes me feel like I can handle anything. I have done the typical one night or once a week babysitting job for family friends, babysitting toddlers - 10 year olds, never more than three children at a time. I was a nanny for a year in Paris, caring for a 5-year-old. Picking him after school, taking him to his after-school activities, supervising play dates, making him dinner, giving him baths, and generally entertaining him. I have worked as a children's birthday entertainer, throwing birthday parties for children between the ages of 2- 6. For each party, I am in charge of communicating with parents, organizing the kids through the different activities, setting up arts and crafts, controlling play in the gymnasium, and ensuring that everyone has a really good time. I have also worked at a children's summer camp in Russia for two months during summer 2010. I was a camp counselor and an English teacher. During this experience, our camp was in danger of a forest fire, so I helped with evacuation, safety, and organization of ninety kids. During winter 2012, I worked at a home for children (ages infant - 18) with disabilities. I helped with the transportation of children to and from the city (roughly an hour commute by bus). I fed, entertained, disciplined, and took care of the kids for 12 hours a day, while also helping with house chores. It was extremely intense, but by far the best experience that I have ever had.

I currently work at an accredited childcare center where I work with kids from ages 18 months thru 12 years and I have been there since I graduated high school. While in high school, I did volunteer work with xx (an organization for elementary & middle school aged kids) and xx (expectant single mothers where they go to get on their feet and gain some support etc.). I have been babysitting and helping with kids of all ages ever since I can remember whether it was helping out in the church nursery, or getting babysitting jobs as I got older. I had the opportunity to go to India to an orphanage/school in 2012 and teach the little kids English for about a week and a half and the experience has deepened my love for children even more. I have experience with various backgrounds and cultures, and I am always up for learning something new!
