Karalee J. - Seeking Work in Keene

14.28 / hour
Full-time hours

I started childcare when I was 12 years old helping out for the children's service in my church. From that I acquired a few babysitting jobs. Working with children opened my interest to pursue a college degree in early childhood education. When I started college I found several families to provide services for. I started out watching two preschool twins while their parents went on date night. The job with the twins then got me to a before school sitter job for three children. My duties were making sure the children were dressed and fed with teeth brushed and ready to go in time for the bus. I was also there for them when they got off the bus and helped them with snack and homework. I now occasionally watch three children for another family ages 4-12 while still keeping in contact with my other two families. What got me attached to infant care was my first student teaching placement that I just finished this past October. I was a student teacher in an infant classroom for 7 weeks and was able to be the lead teacher for 2. I was instantly fascinated at their willingness to learn at such a young age. In this placement I got to know 6 different infants, each with different diaper schedules, feeding schedules, sleeping schedules, and developmental ability. I enjoyed getting to know each child and understanding their individual needs.

11.42 / hour

Hi, my name is Emma and I am a sophomore at Keene State College studying early childhood education. I have loved working with children since I was big enough to hold a baby doll, and have been a natural caregiver at heart ever since. Throughout high school I worked as a weekly babysitter for families with children aged two to eight. I also worked as a summer camp counselor for several years in the four to five age groups. This past summer I worked as a full time live in nanny for twin five year olds on Martha’s Vineyard. While being at school I miss spending time with the little ones that always put a smile on my face.
