Stacie G. - Seeking Work in Hollis

I started babysitting when I was 12 years old and was an unofficial nanny to 2 little boys starting when they were 7 & 9 until they were 13 & 11. I cared for them every day school was not in session, or whenever both parents had to work. Typically I was with them from 7 in the morning until 3 in the afternoon. I also have worked in the nursery at my church since I was about 10 years old (I was 12 when I officially started). I was itching to work in there so badly they let me in early. I would care for infants to children the age of 5. I also have worked at my church's bible camp the past 2 summers as a nursery leader. I was responsible for running the nursery & taking care of upwards of 13 kids at a time (with help of course). I also have an abundance of cousins ranging in ages and have always enjoyed playing with them and taking care of them. In addition to all of my experience with childcare in the states, I have also worked in orphanages in Haiti for the past 3 summers. I have worked in medical clinics & fed the children. I have worked as an activity leader for the program we put on at the orphanage for the orphans and children in the surrounding area. Every time I go to Haiti I am surrounded by children from morning until night. My main job while I'm there is to just love on the kids unconditionally. It's not something I ever complain about. I absolutely adore making those kids smile. My experience in childcare is vast and important to me. I just love being with children, caring for them & making them smile.

I have extensive experience as a babysitter, nanny, and teacher. I worked for two years with a family of two sons, ages 8 and 11. I drove the youngest to and from gymnastics everyday and spent days with them during the summer, occasionally taking them out for activities such as mini-golf or swimming, and spent afternoons with them during the school year. Both were very well-behaved, but I have experience with more rambunctious children as well. As a substitute teacher in the Hollis and Brookline, New Hampshire elementary schools, I supervised groups of around twenty children (sometimes on game days) who often wanted to take advantage of the fact that I was not their permanent teacher. I know how to be firm and I know how (and when) to be fun. I have a lot of experience balancing a large number of activities while maintaining a positive attitude.
