I've had the joy of caring for loving families the past 14 years. My recent family, I was with them for four great years. I started with a new born little boy, and 3 years later his baby sister was born. Sadly for all of us this family had to reclocate to Indiana this summer after the dad completing his medical degree. I enjoyed coming to work every day playing with the children, teaching them in a fun way, and always keeping them safe. If I'm taking care of school age children I always take time to ask how their day went and what they did. I always try making homework fun! I like doing extra things in helping the family so their evenings will be more enjoyable! My past families stay in touch with me as I love to hear how they are doing. :-) I love all the children I've taken care of, including the parents and even the grandparents. The best part is knowing they love me. :-)

Hi there! I started babysitting when I was 12 years-old. The first children I cared for were 2 years-old and 6 months-old. Since then, I have cared for children in groups of three. The first family consists of 3 little girls, ages 2, 5, and 7. The second family consists of twin boys, age 7, and a 10-year-old boy. I also volunteered in the children's ministry at my church. I have been the only adult supervision in a room full of eight 3-5-year-olds and I absolutely love it. Kids are so awesome. I enjoy their honesty, their vitality, their energy and their purity. I love to make kids feel special, important, and understood. I am comfortable caring for babies and kids of all ages. I can also clean, do laundry, grocery shop, etc. I am looking to leave my current place of employment to pursue full-time nannying for a long-term position. Please keep in mind that I would need to give my two weeks notice to my current employer before starting to nanny. Also, I can't leave my job for a salary of under $40,000. I'm so excited for the future; God is up to something good! Thanks for your time.

Hello my name is Susan. I am a 25-year-old recent college graduate from Oakland University where I received my bachelors degree with a major in psychology. Although my area of study is psychology working with children is really a passion of mine! I have worked with children in a number of settings including private nanny positions, summer camp, after school tutoring, babysitting and full time child care as well as an educational based state licensed child care center. At our center I worked in our under 3 building where I spent time working in all our class rooms from 2 weeks to 3 years before I became the lead teacher in our 2 year room. As a lead teacher my responsibilities included lesson planning for a state approved curriculum (including language, math, science and social development as well as fine and gross motor stimulation), healthy meal preparation, minor cleaning, medical distribution when needed and potty training. I am also annually certified in First Aid and CPR.

I started caring for children at the young age of 11 years old. Often I baby-sat for many of the teacher's children at the school where my mother taught. I also baby-sat through my high school years as well. Upon graduation, I took a full-time nanny position for a family with three young children. A few years later I took a full-time position with another family with two children. Not only did I care for the children 5-6 days a week, I was responsible for cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping and other errands, taking the children to sports and appointments, and making sure the children were happy and well taken care of. After a year they added another addition to their family. There were a couple other part-time positions I have had as well. It has been fun and rewarding to care for children of all ages.
