Sabrina C. - Seeking Work in Lee's Summit

8.57 / hour

I have been helping take care of kids from infant through elementary in my church nursery/childcare since I was in 6th grade. When I turned 12 I started babysitting for close neighbors and friends. Since then I have had lots of experience with all kinds of age ranges. I have babysat for many families in my church as my name has spread by the moms and kids, and have even babysat for some of my dad's coworkers' children. I have cared for twin babies before, have taken elementary age kids to their soccer practice, cooked dinners, helped with homework and music practice, done light housework, taken kids to the park, taken kids swimming, and many other things. I worked at my church's summer day camp 2 summers in a row. In the day camp we would take the kids on field trips and other various activites as we had them from 7:30 to 5:00. I also take care of infants in our church nursery once a month. I will be graduating from nursing school this May (2013) and am interesting in babysitting till I pass the state test for licensure and get a job in a hospital. I am currently working for school so I have plenty of experience with premature and sick infants, so a healthy baby will be no problem! :)

I have spent the last year and half working in an orphanage in Mexico. I am a caregiver to 21, 8-11 year old boys, and am constantly interacting with children of all ages within the house. I recently graduated with my degree in Elementary Education, and I spent much time in the classroom through my practicum and student teaching experiences. For four years during college, I worked at a Child Development Center with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. For two summers, I was a live-in nanny for a family with a 10 year old girl, 8 year old boy, and an infant boy. I also have alot of experience keeping my nephew. I was 11 when he was born, and he is now 11. I began babysitting on my own, off and on when i was 13. Then when I was 15 I got a job nannying for two boys, age 5, and age 7, everyday after school for 3 hours, and then everyday in the summer from 8-5. The older child had Aspbergers syndrome. Also, I have had experience working with children through my church.

Hello my name is Kayley, I'm 20 years old and am home for the summer from Kansas State University. I am looking for a position that will fill up all my free time and allow me to bond with children. I have been babysitting and working with children for five years now. During high school I was secretary of xx. In being secretary for this club it allowed for me to plan nanny nights at my high school's daycare. I have taken care of newborns to teenagers. Also in high school I took multiple Childhood Development classes to educate myself on child behavior and the proper ways to be an efficient caretaker. For the past two years at Kansas State I have volunteered and raised money all year round for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. My sorority is top 10 raising chapters in the nation!

I have been caring for my siblings, nieces, nephews and cousins since around the age of 8, starting at family gatherings where I was almost always delegated to keep track of the smallest kids and the babies. I then moved on to babysitting relatives' kids when they went out, and also babysitting neighbors' kids. I babysat two children everyday after school for a year and continue to watch my nephews on a regular basis.
