Amanda N. - Seeking Work in Niles

22.85 / hour
Full-time hours

My life revolves around children. I come from a big family of 5 brothers and 3 sisters, and we are all still pretty close. I have 25 nieces and nephews and one more on the way this summer. I love working with kids of all ages, and I love being able to get on their level and learn with them. I love the outdoors, reading, playing, doing puzzles, parks, and much more. I am reliable and trustworthy. I put all my attention into the children I nanny for and I do not believe in hitting. I believe in teaching in an authoritative role, which is both high control and warmth. I believe that both are necessary to helping mold well-rounded individuals. I am also attending college full-time online, but this never takes place at work. I am a Psychology major, with a double major in Social Work. I love being busy and learning new things. I have learned, in the last few years, that being a nanny is one of the most rewarding and ever-learning positions. I love taking care of children, and I would love to take care of your children.

I've been around kids my whole life. Infants are my favorite to care for but I've watched kids ranging from newborn to 10 years of age.

5 yrs of experience

As a young girl (age 12) families loved my personality enough to ask me to watch their children. I was all for it since I loved children and was getting paid, since I was too young to get a job. Ever since then I've never stopped taking care of other kids as well as my own, it's such a joy to be a part of helping the young ones grow. It makes me feel refreshed to know that I have the privilege to keep children in my care instead of them falling into the wrong hands. Now a lot of the children I took care of are growing up or have become adults and they all still love me and I'm always there for them if needed. I decided to try new things and work different places, but I've found myself wanting to help others by them trusting who they are leaving their children with as well as being a positive influence while I have them. To all parents, I promise that you will love me too!
