Kaylor M. - Seeking Work in Allendale

9.25 / hour

I have babysat for many years and I absolutely love doing it! I've watched a lot of children for families my parents were close friends with. My dad and mom are both teachers so I was always the babysitter of the neighborhood because they knew I was a responsible and respectable person who would take good care of their kids. I also have little brothers myself so I'm very patient and know how to have fun in a safe way. I babysat for a family before with very shy and uneasy children and was later notified by the parents that both of the boys wanted me to come back again to play with them as soon as possible. Throughout high school I played sports and I was always one of the people my coaches would ask to babysit for them during the summers and weekends.

Full-time hours

I have been a nanny for about 4 summers in the past and have babysat family friends, family, neighbors and students from my mother's preschool back at home as well. I have also babysat a special needs child. Most schedules in the summer would include a 7-5 day or a 9-6 day. My responsibilities would include waiting for the children to wake up, feeding breakfast and depending on the day and the activity would either drive or carpool with other mother's and children. Either 2/3 or 3/3 meals of the day would be provided by me. On free days, I would take the kiddos to the park nearby if it was nice enough to walk or drive to a local water splash pad/beach. I've never encountered an issue while being a nanny, health or emergency wise!
