I started babysitting for many different families starting at the age of 12. During the 2005-2006 school year when was a senior in high school, I took a class that allowed me to work in a preschool for two hours everyday, caring for children that were 2 to 5 years old. During the summers of 02-06 i worked as a nanny caring for two children (1 boy and 1 girl), and sometimes taking on some of their family friend's children (2 boys and 2 girls) as well. The children were ages 2 to 11 years old. I worked in a daycare during the summer of 2007 while i was home from college caring for children that were 2 to 13 years of age. During the summers of 09 & 10 I did some part time nannying for a family with two boys aged 1 and 3. Since then I have earned my bachelors degree in Family and Youth studies and completed an internship working with children living in a domestic violence and sexual assault shelter. I now currently hold a part time nanny job and am looking for another part time job that will allow me to build a schedule around my other nanny job (i get my schedule 1 month in advance).

I am an experienced, dependable, and loving nanny. I have worked with children of all ages for well over 10 years now. I greatly enjoy infants, and that's because I love seeing them do new things and reach new milestones. I also love that I can be active with the older children, and take them on fun and exciting "field trips". The thing that I enjoy the most about every child, is seeing the happiness and innocence that radiates from each and every one of them. Some of my favorite activities, regardless of age, would be arts and crafts, walks outside, visiting the park and zoo, and of course, reading. I currently am not certified in First Aid or CPR (though I do know how to perform it), however I would be more than happy to obtain that certification if requested. My resume is also available by request. I thank you for taking a look at my profile, and please feel free to ask any questions that you may have.
