Carli L. - Seeking Work in Avon

9.04 / hour

Having worked for a number of different families and their children, I have learned a great deal what takes to make the relationships that are formed run smoothly. The key is communication and consistency from both myself and the parents I work. Bringing in a third authority figure ontop of mom, dad and outside influences such as teachers and other family members can be tricky. I have formed lasting relationships with some of my previous employers and still get called upon by them to do occasional sitting. I find what I do to be priceless!

Shauna H. - Seeking Work in Avon

11.42 / hour

In high school, I had normal evening jobs. During the summer, I would take care of children all day. When I got married in 1990, I worked for a couple doctors families that each had 1 child. Because we moved often, I would find new jobs that were fulltime until I had my own 2 children. I continued babysitting parttime because I had my own family to care for also. I took a break from babysitting because of the high demand of my own families care.

I am 21 years old.I have been babysitting/nannying for 7 years. I have the most experience in newborns and toddlers but I have also cared for older as well. I have great experience with multiples. I have mostly cared for more than one child at a time. But I do well with one on one as well. I know how to stretch myself and to accommodate which is important. I have a lot of patience which is a must with children but my heart is also loving and nurturing as well. I love being with children and seeing them smile and giggle! That's what it is all about. I love being creative with them and their imaginations as I'm sure you know are very big :)
