Dear Potential Family,
My name is K Harris, and I have dedicated my life in the field of childcare since the age of 20 years old. I now have 18 years invested and Local, State, & Federal Clearances, I would like to share with you, why I am a perfect candidate for this position. I have always had a natural aptitude for engaging in the nurturing of children. Interacting and contributing towards a child’s healthy development has always been a rewarding and a priceless achievement for me. For instance, I’ve enjoyed providing one on one care and consistency in conducting developmentally appropriate educational games, such as learning techniques to enhance character. For example, images flash cards and matching games, that assists in cognitive development skills along with developing in color, sound recognition, and sensory activities for touch. Learning videos and age appropriate board games like Seek-a Boo, an awesome matching game for children, as young as 1-2 years old. We have hours of fun with this one! All of these structured activities, and learning curriculums, I have found to contribute towards acquisition and development, along with trips to the playground is always enjoyable on a beautiful day.
Furthermore, I have a sense of fulfillment in taking the initiative around the home and assisting the family with daily needs, in order to create a stable, clean and function-able environment, I have always had a clear expectation, as to what my daily goals with the service I am providing. For instance, the relationship that I’ve built with my previous employers have consisted of being organized and managing time well with duties around the house such as, preparing small meals, doing light laundry, running errands, and helping out sometimes with homework. Even in the mist of these responsibilities, I never leave out positive praise towards the children and even the family pet if need be. To add, I’ve also experienced those rare occasions of staying later than usual, due to unexpected emergencies... I understand that some things are out of our control so, when the family needs me, it’s my job to step in and assist.
Having the capability of allowing a child and their family, to express gratitude towards you, for the service that you provide for them, is one of the most fulfilling accomplishments on the earth. Throughout the years of service, my employers, coworkers, and directors have acknowledged my patience and ability to relate to any child and their circumstances by providing an abundant heart and understanding. Being a nanny or a person of support is something I greatly enjoy and have discovered to be an honorable tittle. I am truly excited and blessed for this opportunity and looking forward to discussing this potential position with you further.
Thanks for your time!

I have been working as a child caregiver for 10 years, both in home settings and in licensed care facilities. Beginning as a babysitter, I was incorporated into a family of 6 and took on more of a nanny role over time within the family. In addition to the regular daily care, I would accompany the family on trips and help at large family gatherings.
My experience in licensed care facilities began in 2010 when I became the assistant teacher of a young toddler classroom. Responsibilities within the classroom were evenly shared and I very often assumed the head teacher role during her absences. I continued to work in two other licensed care facilities as a lead teacher of a young toddler classroom and a lead infant caregiver, where I independently cared for infants as young as 5 weeks old as well as both twins and triplets.
Most recently, I worked as a Nanny for a wonderful family with 3 children. My main focus was on the youngest, who was 5 months old at the start of my employment. I occasionally cared for the elder siblings, ages 6 and 9 at start of employment, during school breaks or if they were home sick. I cared for the youngest for an average of 40 hours per week for 2 years, providing individualized care in the home. I planned and implemented educational and skill-building activities that corresponded with her skills and goals, as well as regular excursions outside of the home. Watching her grow from an infant into the amazing kid she is now was an incredibly rewarding experience.

I am also CPR (including infant CPR) and first aid certified.
I absolutely love working with children of all ages and watching them thrive. I am constantly amazed by the ability of children to learn so much and to grow so quickly into curious and smart individuals. Being able to be a part of such a wonderful time in a child's life is the greatest gift, and I am so thrilled to be able to help children discover the wonders of the world around them.

My name is Liberty and I am twenty years old. I am an American. (Did My name give it away?) I am a bookworm, poet, athlete, singer and a very adventurous young women. I LOVE kids and in all honesty becoming a nanny is my dream job. From Reading to writing to singing to dancing to running to biking to volunteering I have a passion for appreciating all of the beautiful gifts this world has to offer and I hope that someday I can share these gifts with your kids as well.

I can do messy and crazy. In fact, I enjoy it because that's what makes it interesting. I've worked with ages from infants to 17 year olds. I currently am studying to become a teacher but am taking time off to work and be able to afford my degree since I am paying for it all on my own. I am very easy going, friendly, caring and would love to be the person you can trust and rely on on a weekly basis. I come from a big Italian Family so trust me when I say I've seen almost everything. From the people I've worked for to my closest of friends I've been told that I'm always smiling happy and upbeat. One of my biggest aspirations in life is to give back to the world and the life that I was so blessed to be given. There are so many different ways you can give back to this beautiful world of ours that we call home but one of my personal favorites is helping families. I hope I can have the honor of helping yours.

I would personally love to be a nanny because I would like to be the person that a family can count on on their busiest of days. I want to be the person that their children can look up to as a positive influence when their parents are not able to be around. I want to promote them to stay active to read beautiful literature and to aspire to be the best person that they can be. I want to be the second best person your children look up to because clearly you will always be the first.

Hello my name is Jennisa Nurse .I am a 16 year old with a big heart for children . Growing up I was the youngest girl in my family out of 7 kids . My little brother was my priority growing up . I had to take care of him and provide him with anything he need because both of my parents was working at the time and the rest of my siblings were just lazy and plus me and brother just connected more. My experience with my younger brother made me want to work more with children of any age . I started off watching the neighbors children and also my family close friends kids. It was honestly the best thing for me. The kids were absolutely wonderful . Every kid has they’re bad days but I tend to lighten it up for them , and when I say that I mean like play games , teach them something new , read to them , and love them unconditionally like they are your family . The best way to raise a child is to understand how they’re feeling and work around that to make sure they will be spectacular in the near future. I also think that children are the future . It’s is super important that they are taken well care of by any means necessary . That’s where u come in . I won’t just take good care of your kids , I will love and nurture them like they’re my real family. That’s where I think most nanny’s / babysitters don’t fit they tend to only care about the amount they’re getting paid instead of the lovely children that needs care . I was raised in a wonderful family , with all love and kindness in my home. I will bring that exact same care and love into your home , if I am hired. Thank you for this opportunity

Sincerely ,
Jennisa Nurse
