Rachel P. - Seeking Work in Eden Prairie

I am a bilingual 3rd grade teacher, and have therefore had extensive experience working with children. Needless to say, I love kids and have always had a passion for caring for children! I love kids of all ages and take great pride and joy in the time I have the opportunity to spend with them! When I was younger, I wanted to start babysitting as soon as possible so at age 12, I enrolled in the American Red Cross Babysitting Class, became CPR certified, and began my babysitting career sitting for a family with one, 1 1/2 year old, Alexandria. I babysat for them as their family grew to include two children and cared for both Alexandria and their newborn son. I nannied for them 4 summers ago, after which a nanny was no longer necessary. I'm still in touch with the family and continue to remain a presence in the children's lives. I have babysat for countless families over the years, and feel comfortable caring for a broad range of children in terms of age. I have experience taking care of newborn infants all the way up to 12-year-old children with family sizes of anywhere from 1-4 children. In terms of nanny experience, I have nannied for a wonderful family for the past 4 summers whose children ranged in ages from 4 to 12. Their youngest son was also diagnosed with Down's Syndrome. As a nanny, my past responsibilities have included: waking the children up and getting them ready for the day, preparing meals, cleaning up (loading/unloading the dishwasher, doing laundry, picking up toys), doing indoor and outdoor activities with the children, driving them to various recreational activities, and providing one-on-one tutoring in math, reading, and writing. I loved the kids I cared for and had so much fun! I would really love to nanny for a family again!

I began babysitting at age 12 for families in my neighborhood and for my younger cousins. I spent two summers as a nanny for my two younger cousins who were 6 and 9 at the time. My responsibilities included making meals, doing light household chores, driving the kids to playdates, setting up playdates, and more. After that, I worked at the Childcare Center for 2 years working mostly with the two to four year olds. My responsibilities included helping to maintain the safety of the children as well as helping to implement the curriculum written by the classroom teacher. After that, I spent nearly three years as a nanny for a family with two girls, ages 7 and 13 when I began. My responsibilities included bringing the girls to activities, helping them with homework, setting up play dates for the younger girl, as well as some light household work. I was a part time nanny working about 25 hours during the school year and 40-50 hours in the summer. Additionally, I have also worked in a high school for the past three years, working with students with the special education label of emotional/behavioral disorders. I work with students ages 14-21.
