Cassondra H. - Seeking Work in Reno

14.28 / hour

I can honestly say that I’ve never favored a particular age group over others. I make sure that I have each day planned out based on their needs, personalities and skill levels. For example, in my last position I was looking after kids ages four and eight. The age difference caused them to be in completely different stages of life, so the parents and I worked out a plan to make sure that each day was stimulating for both children.
Jessica S. - Seeking Work in Reno

I have babysat through my teenage years and had much experience in elementary aged children. My father has been in education throughout my life, starting as a teacher and moving on up into administration and special education. This gave me a unique opportunity to volunteer in classrooms with children younger than I both before and after school and during summer vacations. Most of my time was spent in special education classes, whether it be DHH (deaf and hard of hearing) or ED (emotionally disturbed. Now that I am a bit older I do tutor children in math as I am a mechanical engineering major at UNR.

Eryn G. - Seeking Work in Reno

14.00 / hour
5 yrs of experience

I've worked with kids for 15 years. I started babysitting young & fell in love. I worked at a private preschool/daycare working with kids 2-6 years old. I've worked in a Montessori school with toddlers. I served in children's ministry for over six years as well as the youth ministry. I traveled the world from January 2010-August 2010 & most of what I did involved children. I'm not one for the "employer/employee" feel when it comes to nannying. I'm looking for a family that wants to welcome me into their lives, not just pay me to take care of their kids. I've become very close to all my past families & that's what I desire. I enjoyed working with larger groups of kids, but there's nothing like being able to dive into one child's world, watching them learn & see how they discover life. I love being able to lighten the load at home for parents. I like for them to come home & not have to worry about anything except spending time with their kids. I love the freedom in the job & ALL the fun. One of the hardest parts about being a nanny is when communication between myself & the parents is not completely open. I'm a very direct, open & honest person, so I like for the parents to be that way with me; tell me what I'm doing wrong, what I can do better, what you prefer. And it helps to tell me at the time that you think it, not later after you've been frustrated about it. It's great when parents are willing to learn from me too. I'm not a parent yet, but I do have a lot of experience with kids & have a plethora of things I've learned along the way. It's hard when I don't agree with a certain ideal or way that the parents do things. I try very hard to get all of that out in the open before accepting a position so that it's not a surprise later. I thrive on encouragement & appreciation. I'm a hard worker. I understand that all of the things I'm doing are my job & I'm getting paid to do it, but when the parents express love & appreciation, it makes me want to work even harder.
