Vanessa R. - Seeking Work in Philadelphia

Hi. My name is Vanessa. I am a loving, responsible, trustworthy and active nanny/babysitter. I enjoy time with kids, play games, read and teach them with fun activities, and most of all give them a lot of love!!! I was raised with love, values and joy, with many youngest brothers and sisters, childhood was just happiness! All this made me a happy and patient girl. In my early 20's, I worked in a daycare, for 2 years. There was where I found I wanted to work with kids. One of my latest jobs; taking care of an adorable 2-year-old baby boy and his big sister of 8 years old. This was for 9 wonderful months. We loved outdoor activities, read, sing, arts and crafts. I had so much fun with them. This ended because the mommy quit her job and wanted to take care of them at day and study at night time, when his husband were at home, so she didn't need me no more. But since then, I've been taking care of the kids for some weekends. My last job was working for a wonderful parents; taking care of their sweet 18-month-old baby girl. She loves to sing, read, dance and snacks! We used to take walks around the park (close to the neighborhood), play games, we loved to draw, and sing about animal sounds, colors, parts of the body, say "thank you, please, hi, bye bye,". I had so much fun and love those moments. This was for 3 months Monday through Friday, live-in. Mommy and dad decided to take her to a daycare. Since then, I help them occasionally. All this through the years has allows me to know many personalities from children, and has helped me to discover how to handle any situation in a good way. Oh, by the way, in case you have pets, no problem. I love pets!!! I really feel comfortable with them. I'm willing to help you with light housekeeping and laundry. Hope to be the right fit for you.

I am a college graduate with a bachelor's degree in Psychology and a concentration in Child Development. I have a sincere love for and understanding of children, and I can be a reliable companion for families. My most recent position was part of a nanny share where I cared for two infants simultaneously. Over the summer I was a mother's helper for two children; a newborn and a toddler. We attended music, tumbling and movement classes around the city. My most recent long term nanny position was with a toddler. I worked hard to help him develop verbally and physically while also nurturing him emotionally. Our days were spent running around in the park, dancing while making music, and reading every book in the house, twice! I like to encourage learning through play and I am good at setting boundaries with patient communication. Prior to this I nannied for an infant for 1 year, twin infants for 6 months, and I worked as a live-in nanny for a newborn and a 3-year-old for 2 years.

My childcare experience started in my own family where, as the 2nd oldest of 5 children, I helped my mother take care of my two youngest brothers on a daily basis when they were born and became like a second mother to them. I then started working in childcare in my local church. I took care of anywhere from three to thirteen 2 yr. olds by myself or with one helper once or twice per month for 2 hours on Sunday mornings. I did that from age 13 to 19. When I was about 14 I started my first paid babysitting jobs for family friends, and I did that until I left for college. When I was about 16 I started working paid childcare jobs for my church on a regular basis, taking care of anywhere from 1 to 10 children by myself or with other helpers. I still work childcare at my church when I am home from school. During my senior year of high school I helped in a nursery for 2 hrs. once per month in a program. Last summer (2008) I worked at a day camp at a local . I was one of eight camp counselors for a coed group of approximately 40 3rd graders. The camp was 8 hrs. per day, 5 days per week, for 8 weeks. Also last summer I volunteered as a teacher for a 3rd grade class at a week-long night camp program at my church. I have been a "helper" in such classes since 7th grade, but last year was my first year leading a class. I have been a nanny for the past year for a child from age 5 months to now 16 months. Overall, my childcare experience has ranged from dealing with tears and temper tantrums to taking care of babies with dirty diapers and kids with allergies and diabetes.

All my life I have encountered experiences working with kids one way or another. Whether it was school through internships at daycares all the way until now working with children with disabilities and I love it. I worked for a family of 3 and I watched two boys while the mother was at work and as they got older the routine changed where they began school and the responsibilities changed to where i was picking them up from school. I also, ran a school wide field day with two partners with my entire high school from grades 7-12th which included several activities and challenging races. I have interned at a daycare for two years that I even continued to encounter with after the internship was over. We on many trips with the kids from educational trips to even road trips with a little more fun like Disney World and Ohio to an amusement park. I now work with kids with disabilities and I make sure they stay on task in class, change and feed the student and just being an all around support to make the student feel as a part of the class as possible. I currently will be starting school for pediatric dental hygienist and have been working on this career since high school through internships and several pediatric dental projects. Which were all presented through my interships at daycares and my field day. I also am currently working on a new project called xx Which will be a girls group starting in September of 2016.

My passion for children has been as long as I am old. I had a babysitting business during my high school years, worked in my church's nursery and babysat throughout college. On holiday college breaks I recall assuming the role of "mom" while the parents were away on business for a week and the children were in school. Throughout college I volunteered with xx. Post college I was a "Big" through the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, continued with scouting, volunteered to teach snow skiing to people with varying disabilities, instructed swimming lessons to ages between pre-school-adults (includ teens). During the summer months I accompanied people with disabilities (same organization as the skiing) on hikes, white water rafting, horseback riding).
