Full-time hours

I am dedicated caregiver, its something I am passionate about, something that comes naturally to me and gives me joy. After graduating from high school I joined a non profit organization and volunteered abroad working in environmental conservation for four months followed by another two months of backpacking through Central America. I was lucky enough to see all that we take for granted in our daily life and what the most important things in life really are, which is our family in the sense of community, connecting to people and loving them freely. I have experience with caring for infants and children of all ages. I had my first paid babysitting job at the age of 12 and have been babysitting ever since. Last year I worked as a live in nanny for two children, 4 and 6. My job included watching the children for 6+ hours a day, six days a week, taking them to appointments, play dates, sports, and school, cooking, cleaning, and any other requested work. It didn't feel like a job and I was able to adopt them as my family and am still in contact with the them. I also cared for the children during vacation time and while the parents were out of town. My driving record is clean, not even a parking ticket. I worked as a nanny for another family, watching two children (2 and 3) for 7 hours five days a week. I enjoy doing crafts with the children and helping them express their own unique creativity and personalities. I also like getting the children active by getting them outdoors and moving around, learning and using their imaginations. In between nanny jobs I have been a long term babysitter for several children. One young girl for five plus years, also watching for her while parents were on business trips. I am dedicated, responsible and understanding. I have studied child development and have a special interest in cognitive and behavioral studies. I am also interested in holistic living, and creating balance in mind, body, and spirit. Clean, organic, local, seasonal, plant-based foods are my specialty. Cooking healthy food that people enjoy and keeps them able to live a life free of sickness is essential. We cannot thrive without our health. I understand that it is not easy to choose someone to care for your children as there is nothing more precious or valuable. I would be honored to not only care for your children, help them grow, and find comfort, but become part of your extended family.

I have had eight years of experience in childcare/role modeling. I started off as a fifth grader working as a mother's helper. Also, at this time I spent a lot of time with one of my neighbors--who is my age and has autism. He needed a friend to keep him company when his parents had other commitments. I began babysitting in sixth grade. Over the past seven years, I have babysat for several families, all ranging in size, gender, and age. I have eight families that I regularly babysat for a period of time. In tenth grade, I worked at the xx as a Lifeguard and Water Safety Instructor (swim lesson instructor). In eleventh grade, I began working at xx Child Care Center as a Toddler Teacher's Aid. Currently, I am a Infant Teacher’s Aid at the xx Child Care Center.

I've worked in the childcare for 10 years. I have cared for variety of children from infants to 10 years old. I have studied Early childhood education in college, which I learned a lot more about children. I have experience being a nanny, babysitter, especially for my family and other families as well. However, I have experience of being a teacher assistant for a after school program from Pre-k to middle school kids. When I am with children I would find so many creative games for us to play, proper food and snacks for them, have nap time, playing at the park and sports. I have always loved children, they can teach you a lot and fun to have around. I treat other children as like they are my own children with love, kindness, care, and respect.

Edie D. - Seeking Work in Saint Paul

Hello! My name is Edie and I am currently the lead preschool teacher at a child development center. I fell into preschool teaching back in 2004 and have loved it every since. I started at a center in St. Paul where I stayed for about 3 years. I became pregnant while there and made the tough decision to leave my job to be home with my daughter. I enjoyed being a stay at home mom more than anything. After being home for 2 years, I decided my daughter was ready for school and I was ready to get back to work. I was a nanny for a family in Minneapolis very short term and loved it. Unfortunately, schedules changed and I was no longer available during the hours they needed. I worked in an office for a while as well and was bored out of my mind! Luckily for me the company closed down and I was put out of my misery. I was able to once again be at home with my little one while job searching. I found another preschool teaching position and jumped on it. I was not there very long before another teaching opportunity presented itself. Being a parent myself, I know how hard it is to find someone to care for your children. I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have and provide many references. Hope to hear from you!
