Full-time hours

Hello, I'm Stephanie and I am currently seeking a Nanny/Babysitting position within the Capital Region. I am originally from Kings Park, New York but attended the College of Saint Rose for the past four years and graduated this May with my teaching degree. I am also starting Graduate School at the College of Saint Rose in the fall for Music Education. I recently turned twenty-two years old, and have had a lifelong passion for working with children. Although I am not from a large family, I have a variety of experiences babysitting from a young age and maintained several long-term babysitting jobs with families. I believe that I am creative, energetic, and cooperative with children as well as fully involved in a teamwork approach with families to match their values and views on raising their children. As a recent graduate from The College of Saint Rose, I have obtained a Bachelor of Science in Music Education with a concentration in Voice to become a General Music Educator. Upon completing my rigorous coursework in the field of education, I have gained advanced and innovative techniques for classroom management, functional behavior assessments, lesson planning, and childhood development. Not only have I gained a thorough, well-rounded education, but also a true passion for teaching with a purpose. As an undergraduate student at Saint Rose, I have had many experiences with students from pre-k to grade 8 at schools including Sheridan Preparatory Academy, Delaware Community School and Oliver Winch Middle School in South Glens Falls. I am currently residing in Albany, and will be available to begin employment as soon as possible. As a nanny, I hope to be a trusted, dependable member of your family and work continuously to gain vast experience with children and families. I do have night class Monday and Wednesday nights, so I would have to leave by 3:00 PM and Thursday nights by 6:00 PM. If you can work around my school schedule, please feel free to contact me at (631) 942-0821 with any questions

Hello Families, I'm Jenny a 26 year old college graduate. I have been working with children since I was old enough too and even before then I enjoyed pretending as though I was able too. I also have experience working at a daycare and taking care of numerous other munchkins. I am Cpr and First Aid certified and will continue to be. It is important to me to always renew these certifications. I currently work for a lovely mother of two beautiful twins since they were babies. ( boy and girl. Almost four years)I helped with housekeeping for the children, bath time, all meals, and educating them through numerous outlets. We've been on vacation together and have enjoyed becoming close. I love them to death however I will only be having a part time schedule soon. It will be almost impossible to leave them however I am not sure this will be enough for hours for me. I am looking for a family with younger children who have a separate living space and can pay on top of living expense at least 600 a week I only ask this much because I really love being a nanny and want to continue doing so however do have two bachelors degrees and have to pay student loans and other such bills. I am quite flexible though. This is not a final say. I am always willing to work around different ideas and plans to ensure everyone is happy. I look forward to meeting you and your children. Jenny :)

Full-time hours

I started my childcare experience at a young age by working in a daycare when I was 14. From there I became a summer camp counselor and began babysitting before and after school throughout high school. In college I worked for two different families as a nanny. One family shared time between Vermont and Boston and had 5 children, ages 4 through 13 when I began with them. I would work full time in the summer and weekends in Boston. The other family was part-time during the week while I was in college. They had two daughters, a 1 and 3 year old. After college, I supplemented my initial teaching income with a nanny position. I worked for a family with 2 children, ages 9 and 10. I would pick them up from school, take them to activities, help them with homework, monitor them in the pool, make them dinner, get them ready for the next day, and get them to bed. I am 100% dedicated to the families that I have worked for and have created long-lasting relationships with them.
