Jennifer P. - Seeking Work in Toledo

My name is Jennifer. I am 49 years old and the mother of 3 children. I have been caring for children for over 25 years. I have ministered to children at Mother Teresa's Orphanage in Africa and Haiti. I also had a 5 year old girl with cerebral palsy come from Russia and live with me for several months while she received medical treatment. I took several classes, CPR, First Aid, ect. to have a day care in my home for 2 years. I home schooled my two oldest children through seventh grade. They are now both attending college. I also have a 9 year old son who attends xx. I am a very happy, outgoing person and I love children. I have ministered to and cared for children of all ages from infants to teens at our church for years. I am a fantastic cook! If it would be helpful to you I could have a meal prepared for you when you get home. I want to bless you and make your life easier giving you more quality time with your children. I would like to meet and talk to you about helping your family. My daughter wanted to write a reference so I enclosed it for you. I am Jennifer's daughter, Hannah, and I am 18 years old. I thought it would be helpful to write to you because I see her motherly nature first hand. She can't do enough for you, her number one priority is always your needs and they are never her own. I am grateful for the sacrifices she made to homeschool us because it gave me confidence and skills I know I would not have gained otherwise. She didn't just teach me how to read and write by four years old, or how to multiple and divide by seven, she taught me how to love, how to work hard, how to forgive, and how to always have the courage to keep going, no matter how bad you want to quit. Her compassion makes you feel so loved and accepted and when she walks into a room you can feel it. She is an encourager, and will make your child feel like they are the center of attention, always. You can pay anyone for childcare, but there are few people who's character is so pure and powerful that they instill it in someone else. I am so grateful that I am able to be a portion of the woman my mom is, and I am honored to say that she'll be as great a nanny as she is a mother.

Ever since I was 12 years old I have loved looking after children! Probably because I was the oldest of four and I was always the helper. I loved to babysit all through middle and high school. Sometimes my families would call me just because the kids wanted me to come and play and the parents knew their kids would have fun, the house would be picked up and nothing would be "going on." Then off to work, got married and my husband and I were blessed with two girls of our own. Shelby is a Senior and Mandy is a Junior this year and have their own activities. I miss the little ones again. Of course, I borrow the neighbor children when I can, but they do have their own families! They do love to visit Miss Lynne's for fun! I retired from a major law firm as a legal secretary to care for my own children and my mother-in-law when we moved to Sylvania in 1991. Since I have been out of the workforce for so long, I thought I would try the "nanny" experience first.

My childcare background began in high school. When I was 13 years old I began babysitting for a number of families. I worked at the church doing childcare and nursery for ages new born to 5th grade. For two summers I was hired to watch two kids between the ages of 9 years and 12 years. While at this position I was responsible for the overall well-being of the children for 8 hours each day 5 days a week. I generally made 2-3 meals a day for them, took them on fun outings, disciplined them as need be, and drove them to practices or appointments. At the age of 19 I travelled to Mongolia to work in an orphanage for 3 weeks. There I played with children of all ages doing arts and crafts, playing outside and just being there to put a smile on these beautiful children's faces. In August of 2007 I was hired at a church as the Christian Education director. There I organized an after school program for elementary students and taught sunday school. During the summer of 2008 I was hired to work at a children's camp at a conference center in North Carolina. I worked 5 days a week, for 10 weeks, with children ages 3-4 doing arts and crafts, music, swimming, nature walks and much more! It was after college that I moved to Vancouver to work as a live in Au'Pair. Once I returned I earned a Masters in Sociology and began working as a social worker in Toledo Ohio. For the last four and a half years I have worked with children ranging in age from 1-14. I have worked in the home as well as in an individual therapy setting.

The baby I watched Fall semester was 9 months, so I am experienced with young babies. I have taken the red cross babysitting class in 2007. I have babysat my young brothers, ranging from infants to 12 years old over a course of several years starting in 2006. I am experienced at babysitting multiple kids at a time. My little brother, who is now 7, has non-verbal autism and my younger brother who is now 16, has Aspergers. I have babysat my young cousins when they were little and still babysit occasionally now. I think I started sometime around 2006. With having a young brother with non-verbal autism, I have learned many skills in putting babies and toddlers and children to bed, feeding, and teaching how to talk and walk, seeing how it was a challenge to get my brother to do any of that. I have also babysat for my aunt's neighbor who had a baby, toddler and elementary school child. I have babysat for countless other families who had multiple children of all ages. I am fine with pets; I actually love them. I am a non-smoker. I have my own car. I am available whenever. I volunteered at my church in the children's ministry with the ages 3-5. I volunteered at Sunshine Children's Home in their therapeutic horse riding barn with children and adults with developmental disabilities. Both I stopped at the end of the summer of 2012, due to starting school in Kent.
