Melissa J. - Seeking Work in Matthews

Full-time hours

I have 17+ years of experience with all ages, from newborns to preteens. My experience ranges from one on one with a child, to full-time with two children, to keeping a family of 5 children (ages 1.5-12), to working with groups of children in nursery and classroom settings and as a camp counselor. (Working with groups gives you great perspective when you go back to investing in just one or two at a time!)

I have worked in the daycare setting for 10 plus years. I have had 10 children in my care at one time. I am ready to leave that setting to a more one on one position. I want to focus more on the child than the politics that you get at a corporate daycare.I have 3 children who are older and have families of their own now. I also have 4 grandchildren I help take care of.

I have had a whole lot of experience with childcare! I have been babysitting for over ten years for ages ranging from infant-13 years old. At 18, after graduating high school a semester early, I got a job at xx and worked there on and off for 3 years. When I graduated Appalachian State University and was waiting to move to Charleston, SC to attend the accelerated bachelors of nursing program at Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), I nannied for two different families.

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 :)

I have babysat for different families throughout the years and have enjoyed each experience. This was usually on an as needed basis. One of my more recent babysitting jobs has been taking care of two little girls. I provided both in-home care and driving the girls around to their after school activities. Also, I was a Sunday school teacher for 2nd and 3rd grade students at my church.

Throughout high school I babysat for many families. I would mainly provide my services for weekend nights out. The kids I took care range in ages from 1-year-old to about 11 years old. I also work once a month in my church's nursery, so I have experience and feel comfortable with all ages of children. My tasks mainly include preparing meals for the children, getting them ready for bed, tidying up the house, and entertaining the children.
