Kayleigh S. - Seeking Work in Ribera

14.28 / hour
Full-time hours

I start working for a day care center in The Netherlands in 2010. Because of the economic crisis I had to find a other job. That's when I found a nanny job. I had to take care of two kids, 1.5 and 4 years old, for 2 or 3 times a week for approximately 9-10 hours a day. I would help the kids get dressed and give them breakfast. Then I would bring the eldest child to school at around 8.30 am. After that I would go to the grocery store with the youngest child and after that go to the park to feed the ducks, to the playground or play at the house in the backyard or inside, depending on the weather. At around 12.00 pm. Me and the youngest child would pick up the eldest child from school and we all would have lunch together. Sometimes with a friend, sometimes the eldest child would eat at a friends house. After lunch I had to bring her back to school at around 1 pm. Then I would come home and put the youngest child in bed. During that time, I would do some light house keeping work, like vacuuming, doing the dishes, doing the laundry. The youngest kid would sleep for 1.5 hours, so at around 2.30/3 pm. I would wake him up, dress him and go back to the school to pick up the eldest child. She would go home with me, with or without a friend or go play somewhere else. At around 4 pm. their mom would come home. I would tell her how the day was, how their kids were and that would be the and of the day.
