I first started babysitting when I was 14 years old after I had some "mother's helper" expereince. I babysat for many families in my area and also for my own family when I turned 16yrs old. The summer after i turned 16 I started nannying for families in the summer time when school was out. At this time I also became a certified life gaurd. After graduating high school I continued to babysit while I started classes at UC. After a year I took a break and began to work full time as a teacher while I was pregnant with my daughter. After I had her, I became a nanny for another year before re-entering in school. I have continued to babysit for the neighborhood families as I am now finished with my associates degree in Social Work. I nannied for a family with a little boy a year and a half older than my daughter for 3 consecutive years, caring for him in the summer and providing after school care throughout the year, though that position ended (need based) last year. I would love to return to the child care field now! I am looking for any type of offer because my schedule is flexible. Part Time, Full Time, or Summer Seasonal positions would all fit my availability.

I started "technically" watching my brother and sister at the age of 13 and have been babysitting neighbors and my 10 younger cousins ever since. I volunteered to work childcare at my church during high school (about 5-10 kids ages 3-8) and have recently started to volunteer working childcare at the church I now attend in college (about 5-12 kids ages 3-6). I've house sat and provided childcare for my aunt and uncle and their 4 children for the past two years when they go out of town for a week. I also provide childcare for the staff on occasion in their homes and at conferences. For the conference I work in the fall (past 4 years) I'm in charge of room with 2 other students. The conference is for 3 days and the room has about 8-16 kids. For my first two years I was with toddlers room, but for the last two years I've been the lead volunteer for the infant room. I've had experience with newborns and up and feel comfortable with all ages. I'm currently employed at xx as a Research Student assistant and Nanny part-time until June (2014) for a family with twin 11-year-old boys. I have been this family's nanny for about a year now and worked full time for them last summer. Due to requirements for school and increased availability at xx though my availability no longer matches up with theirs. I'm looking for part time work for the summer and possibly throughout the school year next year.

I am the oldest of five children and have extensive experience taking care of four or more children at one time. I have cared for babies, toddlers, young children, and older children. I took Red Cross First Aid, Red Cross CPR, and Red Cross babysitting a few years ago. However, I can no longer say I am "Red Cross certified" in First Aid and CPR, because I have not retaken the classes to renew my certification. In July I will be taking Red Cross Advanced Childcare with First Aid and CPR to renew my certifications. I have taught swimming lessons to children with Red Cross swimming levels for 6 years, and have supervised groups of swim teacher/student pairs as well as taught water safety for 3 years. Additionally, I have led small groups of middle school girls at church and volunteer activities. Finally, I assisted in teaching Sunday School classes to children grades preschool to first grade for two years. I love cooking, and can prepare quick and healthy meals with ease. My interests include hiking, bike riding, dance, piano, music, natural health, reading, learning about different cultures, and cooking. I enjoy being outside and creating fun activities to keep children engaged. I have my own car, so transportation will not be an issue. Childcare providers should exude love, kindness, encouragement, trustworthiness, responsibility, and integrity, and that is what I seek to do. Children are greatly influenced not only by parents and teachers, but also by nannies. Therefore, a nanny should not only care for children, but should also inspire them to be the best they can be.

I grew up in a large, Catholic family and helped take care of my two younger siblings when they were babies. I was five when my sister was born, so my care was limited to simpler tasks; however, I was nine when my brother was born, and I was able to help much more. At the age of 11 or 12, I began to babysit one day a week for my neighbors. They had three kids, ages 2, 6, and 8. This year, I have been working as a full-time nanny for two children who are now 1 and 3 (they were 4 months and 2 and 1/2 when I started). I get them dressed, change diapers, cook meals, clean up thoroughly at nap times, play at the park, do art projects, drive to the library, etc. Whenever I have time off from my current job, I have been helping other families. I babysat 4 children in a family of 7 (ranging in age from 1 to 12), a family with 5 children (ranging in age from newborn to 11) and once for a family of 5 (ranging in age from 2 to 9).
