Hello! I'm excited at the prospect of working with a new family. I've included my experiences and I can give you the option of contacting the references involved with each experience. My first experience is both personal and professional. I have been friends with this wonderful mother for 11 years and I have had the honor of living with her and her two sons since she was divorced in 2007 to 2013. The boys are now 5 and 10. I have helped her with responsibilities in running the household as well as diaper changing, pottytraining, preparing meals (including meals for the youngest who had a milk allergy), helping with homework (with her oldest who has Asperger's Syndrome), etc. I was also a part of the recreational things like trips to NY and the Grand Canyon, swimming, hiking, tennis, zoo, museums, ect. I nannied for a lovely couple from June 2009 to February 2010. Their two girls were 11 and 13. I was responsible for helping with homework, taking the girls to and from school and camps, taking them to do fun activities such as hiking, shopping at the mall, cooking classes and going to the movies, light housekeeping, shopping, the girls laundry, as well as cooking kosher meals. I nannied for a beautiful growing family of 5 from October 2010 through mid 2012. The children were ages 5, 3, and 1. I started this job a few weeks prior to the one year old's birth to prepare the children as well as the house for a new baby. My responsibilities were transporting to and from school, to and from activities and camp, helping with homework, potty training, preparing meals, and keeping a consistent napping schedule. I enjoyed taking them to do fun activities such as museums, parks, libraries, hikes, swimming and nature exploring. I also managed the children's laundry and living space as well as organizing and light housekeeping. I joined my most recent family in 2012 and I've enjoyed my time spent with their 3 amazing children ever since. I started this job a month before their 3rd child was born, preparing the family and the house for their new arrival. The children are now 6, 4 and 2. My responsibilities were transporting to and from school, activities and camps, helping with homework and school related activities, potty training, preparing meals, naps, doctor appointments, and family gatherings. We spent time out at libraries, museums, parks, local town activities, and scheduled play dates. I enjoyed taking them swimming, hiking, sledding, exploring, etc. I also managed the children's laundry and living space as well as light house keeping. I live a very quiet life. I enjoy being outdoors, going to bookstores, museums, etc. I do a lot of children's activities on the weekend in addition to during the week so I always find all the fun places to go. I don't drink, I don't smoke, and I don't talk on the phone. I am first-aid/CPR certified. I am looking for an honest, loving family to complement. If you have any questions feel free to call. I look forward to meeting with you. Sincerely, Mary

I started babysitting when I was 10 years old, shortly after I took CPR/babysitting classes and became certified. Ever since, I have been babysitting on the weekends religiously. I've sat for dozens of families, with children of all ages. I have experience with just one child, to groups of children, rowdy boys and screaming girls. I love them all and enjoy what I do very much. I love to play tag and hide and seek with the kids, barbies or trucks! I'm very interactive and I love to teach, I feel a sense of pride when I see a child learning. I have been a nanny for 4 years now, for 3 different families, I can't see myself doing anything else, except one day to be a mother myself.

Before graduating from Ohio University with my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education, I had babysat and nannied since I was 14 years old for neighbors, family members, and full-time working professionals. Throughout college, I gained a years experience working in a Child Development Center where I spent the majority of my time working with Infants from ages 3 months to 15 months. I also helped in the toddler room on occasion. Our focus in the this center was to provide childcare but also sensory learning opportunities for our children! I also student taught mainly in Kindergarten, but gained experience in grades Pre-K to 3rd. After graduation, I became a 1st and 2nd grade teacher, where I taught for 6 years. I worked with students of all different developmental and ability levels and became first aide and CPR certified.
