Alison L. - Seeking Work in Matthews

Hourly rate20.00 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I have been a nanny for 10+ years working with infants up to age 12. The last family I worked for both parents were physicians. I was with them for 4 years. I'm moving on because I just had a baby and am looking for a family that would allow me to bring him along. They had 2 children when I started and had their 3rd who is now almost 3 yrs old. I took on a lot of household management responsibilities when mom was on maternity leave. At this point with a child of my own its just too much for me to do it all. I would love to find a family with less children or less household responsibilities, in order to bring my child along and care for all the children like they deserve. I also worked in daycare settings throughout high school and college and have many nieces and nephews.

I have never experienced nannying, but have been working in the day care feild since I graduated high school. I have come a long way, and have learned so much about the nurturing and care you should provide for children so they can live a happy and healthy lifestyle. I am currently employed at Chesterbrook academy in Weddington, NC. I am the lead teacher in Afterschool and absolutely love it, but after this years summer camp program is over, I would like to try something different. I don't want to leave the child care field, so I think nannying is going to be perfect for me! thank you for reading and I hope you consider me for the position :)

The last family that I nannied for had one daughter and I worked for them for 2 years. I was able to build a relationship with the family that was priceless. After graduating college and moving away, I am hoping to find another family that I can have a similar experience with. I would love to work with a family for a long period of time in order to build a relationship with the parents and with their children. Some of my go-to activities with kids are reading, crafts, and playing outside. Parks, museums, and extracurricular activities are always a plus as well!
