 I am an experienced nanny, babysitter and daycare teacher. I'm working part time as a teacher assistant in the infant classroom( 4 weeks- 12 months). But looking for a full time position. I'm available to start immediately if needed to. I am a student at college online receiving my Associate's in Early Childhood Education. Taking care of children has been my passion. I have a big personality and an even bigger heart. I am very reliable, dedicated and trustworthy. Being punctual is my motto, I hate being late for anything. I am a determined person with an amazing mind set who has the ability to form bonds with people quickly. I am also very proactive and have an incredible work ethic. I can assure you I am well suited for any job you have to offer. While in daycare, I was the teacher assistant in the toddler & infant classrooms. While in daycare, I was required to take continuing education hours and get my CPR and first aid certification. I usually had eight children and one other teacher in the room with me. I learned so much through my kids and as much as I taught them, they also taught me. Watching them grow, some from 4 weeks to even 5 years old was great and I loved being a big part of their childhood. I take great care of children and I love to help out parents as much as possible. I know having children and balancing everyday life can be a bit of a challenge and at one point or another everyone needs help. Being a babysitter is more than just getting a paycheck. It means helping and going the extra mile to make sure children are safe and happy and helping out the parents including housekeeping, errands and anything else you may need me to do.

I started my experience with children in 2005 as a live in nanny (Au Pair) in South Carolina. Those two years that I lived there I worked for two wonderful families. The first family had two children, a 3 years old boy and a 11 months little girl. I used to wake them up, get them ready and walk the boy to school while the little girl would stay with me. When the weather was nice, I would stroll her around the complex where we used to live, feed her, read before naps, play until was time to pick up her brother. They used to have all their activities scheduled, they had time for breakfast, snack, lunch, arts and crafts, educational activities, read, outdoor activities, nap and tv. So I’m good at keeping kids in the schedule, although it might not always be possible considering that we are talking about kids and they have their own mind J. The second family also had two children a 5 years old girl and a 3 years old boy. They used to have a regular schedule. I used to wake them up, get them ready for school, drop them off, pick them up from school, drive the girl to her ballet classes, take them to play dates, playground, library, zoo, to the pool. We used to play board games, go to the movies, science center and whatever else they wanted to do, as long as it was approved by their parents. Recently I’m working as a nanny in Jersey City, also two children, when I first started to take care of them, the girl was 4 years old and the boy was 9 months. I’ve been living with them for 4 years and now they are 8 and 4 years old. Considering that the parents are divorced they have basically two different schedules, eating habits, activity habits which I try to combine their dad’s habits with their mom’s and keep in balance. But basically their activities consist in having play dates outdoor or indoor depending on the weather, go to the movies, play board games, watch TV, go to the pool on summer time, science center. I’m also to take them to dentist, doctor, if necessary. I always liked children, for me they express freedom, they are care free, innocent, they see everything in a creative, magical, dreamy way, and that’s very important. Children need to be children. Every child that I took care, it was like I was taking care of my own child. I try to create a nice, happy and safe environment, but also let them be themselves. I rather “force” them to use their creativity, perhaps read a book, drawing, collage, play lego and so forth, then to place them in front of the TV all day.

I have plenty experience with children of all ages. First of all I have younger brother that I used to take care of. During my high school I started working at summer camp, where I supervised kids between ages 6-13. In 2014 I moved to the US and for almost 2 years I worked as an aupair- live-in nanny for a family of 3. Their daughter was 10months when I started working for them and almost 3 when I was leaving. I have also twins experience of various age. For over 6 months I was working for a family with 9 months old twin boys. The past year I was working for a family of 4 as a full time live out nanny, spending over 65hours a week with toddler boys of now age 3,5. Occasional babysitting or date night sitting has been a must for me ever since my high school and I can provide excellent references from all my previous employers.
