I have been in some form of child care and family service since I was sixteen, now I am about to turn 30. So, about 14 years! Right now I am a part time live-in nanny for a busy couple and thier three children ages12 , 10, and 5. I have worked and lived with this family for almost five years! When I first began thier children were 7mo., 5, 7. They are like family to me, and I am moving to part-time capacity because thier wonderful youngest son is moving into full days of pre-k! They grow up so fast! My duties include providing care for the three year old during the mornings while the parents are at work and thier older children are at school. I play with him, take him to parks, provide educational activities (help with teaching letters, numbers, colors etc. I also help "Mom" with household duties such as laundry, light cleaning, errands, and transportation. I also assist with homework etc. Prior to this position I worked as a Foster Care Case Manager. My position there lasted only a year because I was fresh out of college and even though I loved all the kids on my caseload, government red tape is not my strongsuit. Therefore I moved into my current position from there. Before that I worked as a fulltime live out nanny most summers to various families in my neighborhood, the most memorable being the four year old twins (so cute). Before college I babysat for the children in my neighborhood and all the younger children in my own family (cousins etc.). They were so much fun! I learned how to change diapers and perform the really fun duties that way! In college I took plenty of Child Development classes and occasionally watched the Resident Directors young three year old girl.

I have been doing this for 11 years. I could fill a book with my experiences. But my duties with two families encompasses all of skill sets. Family G had two children: 4 yo girl and 6 yo boy. For four and a half years I picked up both children from school, I made them a snack, helped with homework and school projects, and I took them to soccer practice/play dates. In the summer time I had them full time and would create activities for them (this included things like hikes, trips to the beach, library days, pool days, camping ect). Family S has 3 children, a 4 yo boy, 2 yo boy, and a 8 week old girl. I was with this family for 3 years, I started when the oldest was almost 1. My duties for this family changed ever year as new members were added to the family and as the older kids started school. But my typical day now is as follows: get to the house right around breakfast time (730). Help all kids get ready for school and out the door- then I would watch the baby. In the early months there are a lot of walks around the neighborhood and at parks. But as they get older story time at the library, trips to the museum, and play dates are a regular thing (I consider myself a savant at finding events for babies to go to). I would then pick the older kids up from school, take them home and prepare lunch, and put them down for nap. After nap I would usually plan a small activity close to home (park trip, playing in the backyard, fort making on rainy days) until their mom got home at 430/5.

I am a responsible, caring, young mother of a 3 year old toddler that is looking to use my love of children, early education, outdoor play and cooking to develop a strong work relationship with a local family. My babysitting career started 10 years ago with adolescents. Most recently, I have been caring for newborns and toddlers. I enjoy playing games, reading books and teaching the children new skills. I enjoy being active with the children, playing with them at the park or taking them to different activities. I have had the opportunity to care for children that have special needs including autism, mental retardation, bipolar, and learning disablilities. I have learned many skills from caring for these special children and they have impacted my life tremendously. I have experience with children diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, Aspergers, Asthma, and OCD. My last nanny position was for a prominent family in Biltmore Park with children ages 10 and 15. Requirements of this position was to transport the children to school and activities. I was also asked to do light housekeeping, keep appointments, and stay with the children for 10-14 days while the parents were on vacation. I am a young, fun-loving, patient mom that is looking to develop a special long lasting relationship with a family. I have completed CPR classes in the past. Although my certification is not current, I plan to enroll to obtain my certification again. I have taken a basic first aid class.

I have been caring for children for over 10 years. Since then, I have cared for many families and for kids ranging from infancy to 18 years and have made lasting relationships with every family. Aside from being heavily involved in my own child care endeavors, I worked at, and eventually managed a summer pool and recreation center where I provided swim lessons and was a swim coach as well being a mentor to the young staff and members of the facility. I now work as a toddler teacher at a Montessori school where we instill a sense of independence and practical life learning in our classroom every day. I plan to bring these skills along with me to provide a well rounded child care and learning environment. I believe that every aspect of life has a learning component and I strive to include ways to learn, grow, and develop every day.
