I have watched and babysat for about 5 years now. I have worked for multiple family's, as well as watch and take care of multiple kids of different ages! I love being around kids! I watch over 16 girls from ages 8 to 14, on a weekly basses. I coach for the xx team around 4 days a week! It takes a lot of patience and energy sometimes to be able to coach! I still love it though! This is my second year coaching, and sadly my last. I have loved teaching the girls and looking after them! In the past I have also taken some child development, and child care classes to prepare me to be a nanny! I have wanted to be a nanny for a very long time! I believe it is the perfect job for me! I may not have a lot of experience, but I sure am a hard, dedicated worker when it comes to something I really care about, like being a nanny!

Hi, My name is Taryn, I would love to apply to become your child’s babysitter/nanny. To give you a quick summary of myself, I am a 23 year old recent graduate from small Christian college in Santa Barbara called Westmont College, and I graduated with a B.A in Psychology. I moved up to Oregon about 6 months ago, and I have been a caregiver for the elderly. I mostly do companion care, creating fun activities, making sure that the client is receiving any physical help needed, simple meal prep, cleaning, exercise etc.In regards to my experience with children, I have a range of experience from babysitting (up to 3 children at a time), tutoring (ESL & physically disabled students), teaching Sunday School (3 months-1 year and Kindergarten), Camp Counselor (Fifteen 5th graders) Volunteering weekly at a shelter for battered and abused women (I worked with children while mothers were in counseling), and Interning at a transitional housing program for homeless families (Watched children while parents took time to themselves and participated in group activities). I am CPR certified for adults and infants and First Aid certified. This is a brief description of some of my experience working with youth. But I absolutely adore working with children. I really enjoy getting to know families and finding various ways to serve them. I am really easy going, flexible, and hardworking. I enjoy being outdoors, going on hikes, bike rides, walks to the park, and at the same time, I enjoy just sitting and reading, watching a movie, and playing goofy games. I love to be adventurous and try new things and see new places. I believe some of the most important aspects to watching children are showering them with a lot of love and encouragement, giving them healthy boundaries, making sure they feel known and listen too, and just simply being goofy and having fun.
