Full-time hours

My name is Stephanie and I'm 26 years old. I am currently looking for a family to care for. I'm a student at Concordia University studying Early Childhood Education. My schedule is pretty flexible since I'm taking my classes online. I also have a 1 year old son and he's been doing really great with other children. I am willing to work part time or full time, ideally no less then 30 hours per week. I have 11 years of child care experience with children of all ages. The majority of my experience is with infants and toddlers. I am CPR and First Aid Certified by The American Red Cross, I have my own reliable vehicle with insurance, and I have excellent references. I enjoy reading, outdoor activities, crafts, story time at a local library, trips to the children's museum (I have a year membership), zoo's, local parks, aquariums or simply playing at home. I am willing to do light housekeeping, laundry, and cooking if needed. I absolutely love caring for children and have been doing so for the majority of my life. Some of my most recent experience includes; Working as a live-in nanny during 2010-2012 where I cared for twin girls who were 3 months old when I started. I worked on an every other week basis and I provided 24 hour care for them. During 2012-2013 I worked as a full time nanny, 40+ hours a week for a 4 month old girl. In 2013-2014 I worked as an art teacher, I would teach art classes after school in different elementary schools around the metro area and few classes in Wisconsin as well. In 2014 when I was pregnant I worked for several different families doing a lot of temporary care/babysitting. Caring for children from age 2 to 13 years old. Then I took about 5 months off so I could spend time with my son. After that I worked as a temporary nanny where I was able to bring my son with and I worked about 45 hours a week caring for a 6 month old and an almost 2 year old girl. If you think I could be a good fit for your family please tell me a little about your family and what your childcare needs are. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you, Stephanie

Well I was used to baby sit for a neighbor for 6 years. Two boys and one girl between ages 2 and 5 years old. I would care for them while the Mother was at work. I would cook, bathe, clean the house, do activites with the kids. I also used to work, which we would care the kids while the parents go to workout. We did everything from feeding, changing diapers, clothes, playing games, watching movies and learning activities. I did that for 2 years.

I have always enjoyed watching children and have been doing so for a while. My parents were involved with foster care during my childhood, so when I was younger I would always help them out with babysitting and such. For the past five years I have been a nanny for a family that lives in Milwaukee. I was a nanny for two kids, whom are seven and ten years old. I would work from 7 am-7 pm, so I cooked them all of their meals and brought them to the places they need to be.
