I began my first experience with childcare when I was seven years old and my baby brother was born! I wanted to feed him change him bathe him and basically be a mommy. I did what I could do at such a young age but realized how much fun it was. My mother decided to help out a friend and fellow nurse with some childcare out our house a few nights a week when I was eleven, needless to say I took over that job at once. And since my mom was already raising her own three kids and working a full time job she was grateful for he help. Hanna was just three weeks old who I started taking care of her. This was a hard job because she had colic and the only thing that made her crying stop was for me to hold her face out and just keep walking. But jo matter how hard it was I loved that little baby, and all the cute and cuddly things made up for the hard work. I took care of her sister two years later wine she was born and alps had babysitting jobs around the neighborhood. Over the next several years I didn't have a regular job in childcare but whenever the opportunity came up I was there for anyone who neede help. Mainly my sister and my beautiful niece. When I was 24 I got a job at a daycare. I started in the infant center as a helper but then quickly moved up to the toddler room where I was a main caregiver for a group on one year olds. This job was so much fun and I loved working there every day. After two years there I moved away to the east coast for a short time. And when I moved back a family I met through the daycare asked me if I wanted to nanny for their two girls. And of course I said yes! I took care of them for a year until school started and then came back for summer breaks. I still am in contact with this family today, even though the girls are now 13 and 15. After that job and even in between I took care of two other siblings who were 11 years apart. And now I hope to meet a wonderful new family to help out again!

I have over 10 years of experience working with kiddos. 6 years of those were spent in a professional after school care program where I was a director at my own program creating safe and fun curriculum. For about 4 years, I did in home nanny care for 2 families, one with a set of newborn twins. I also do childcare during random hours, date nights and special situations for families as they arise. I have experience with all ages but love the learning to walk and talk phase best as its a great opportunity to guide children into their unique experience of coming into their independent world. I am certified in cpr and first aid and check in on the latest infant rescue techniques each month. I also have a clean driving record and I am registered in the Oregon criminal history system.

Most recently, I filled an overnight position for a 2 child family in Tualitin ages 6&8. I would get there about 6:30 and stay overnight. I was responsible for making sure homework was done, before bedtime activities, bedtime routine, morning routine, making/packing lunches, and getting the kids on the bus. Aside from most recently, I've been babysitting for my younger brother since i was 12 because both my parents worked. I have also babysat for friends of my parents, my relatives, and other families. While in college, I'd babysit my niece during the summer months to help out my brother.

I have experience in babysitting various ages, as well as two summers' experience as a camp counselor (head counselor during the second summer). This camp counseling job was an 8-week, full-time, live-in position. Throughout the summer I was responsible for two to three campers (ages 13-15), and in this setting I was basically like their substitute parent. I was also responsible for leading activities, such as sports and arts and crafts, for up to 30 campers (ages 8-18) at a time. After these two summers, I gained two more years of experience at a year-round camp for at risk-youth. At this camp I was a live in counselor, responsible for 8-12 campers, ages 8-15. Although most of my experience thus far has been with elementary and pre-teen/teen aged children, I absolutely love caring for infants as well and would feel very comfortable in doing so.

My personal experience in childcare began early in life as I have three younger brothers. I soon began babysitting for many local families and during my first year at college, I was a nanny for a five-year-old foster child. I have been a nanny for 15 years, as well as a lead preschool teacher in an infant room (for eight babies). I developed a very close bond with all of the children in my room as well as most of the parents. While managing eight infants was trying at times, I always found myself missing them on the weekends and looking forward to going to work Monday morning. Loving a job this much was definitely a first for me, and only reinforced that I had made a great choice to work with children and their parents. Almost all of my experience has been with newborns and infants, throughout the toddler phase.

We're two teachers with a one year old who are losing our other kiddo in the nanny share. We'll be starting care back up in the fall. We're looking for another kiddo, hopefully not too far off in age from our child (she'll be 15 months in August, when care starts back up), hopefully not too far away (we're in NE Portland), and hopefully with a family that needs full or part time care during a somewhat similar timeframe (we need 6:30am-3:30 pm M-F). Looking forward to hearing from you! Our nanny comes with a Montesorri background, loves toddlers, and has been with us all year. She's great!
