Holly T. - Seeking Work in Belle Plaine

22.85 / hour

Briefly I will let you know a little bit about my background and my experience. I am a 24 year old who has years of experience in child care. I started off nannying for my sister in 2008 and have nannied and babysat for several families thereafter. I also have worked in a child care center for a year. I worked so I was expected not only to watch up to 12 children or four babies on my own, I was also expected to change diapers and give bottles. As you can tell, I have a great amount of experience and am looking for the right family to commit to. I am planning on going back to school in the spring for psychology counseling but am taking online classes so therefore I have a very flexible schedule. I love to to do arts and crafts to help a child's imagination grow, and I also am an active person who likes to cook healthy meals as well. ( I am a strong believer in the power of healthy eating!)

I look at myself being a responsible 19-year-old. I recently moved to Belle Plaine Minnesota from Nebraska not to long ago. Although I do not have experience being a nanny, I have gotten the chance to watch my 3 nephews and niece over the years. My nephews are ages 3, 1, and 7 months, and my niece is a little over 1 1/2 years old. The reason I mentioned watching them is because any child that I would get the chance to watch would be taken care of by me as if they were one of my nephews or niece. I have also watched other children of different ages. I absolutely love being outside with them, taking them to the park, going swimming, on walks, playing catch, having water fights, reading to them, playing with cars, dancing, doing arts and crafts and just having a lot of fun. I definitely have the energy to keep up with them. I am a very caring and loving person and I do take watching young children very serious.

I grew up in a small town where I watched my parents friends children from the ages of 11-16 on a very regular basis. From those experiences my name was passed around to outside families that I developed relationships with to care for their children as well. Though I haven't had child care as a profession in many years, I have always maintained a habit of caring for my friends children along with my own nieces and nephew.
