I have been babysitting since I was a teenager but broadened my horizons during my college years. I worked as a camp counselor, swim instructor, athletic coach and became the director of a teen program in Rhode Island. I gained a great deal of knowledge about children and teenagers from real-life situations and from coursework for my degree. In the past four years I have been working closely with three families - all with children of different ages. I have been a nanny for a family with one child but have also enjoyed being a nanny for a wonderful family with three children under the age of 5. I have had responsibilities such as helping with homework, preparing meals, doing household chores, transporting children to and from activities, planning events for children and keeping children active and engaged. With my background in education I have also been able to tutor some children who may need additional help in school. I am comfortable with toddlers as well as teenagers. While working with my pervious family I used the same structure and schedule for the children that they were accustomed to. I always encourage good manners and help children realize they can be responsible and helpful - even if it is as something as small as putting crayons in a box. I decided to become a nanny because the expectations are higher and because I genuinely love family.

Hi! I am a responsible and free-spirited 23-year-old college graduate (BS. Biology) with some free time before heading off to Nursing school this summer. I have been a babysitting/nannying for over 9 years. I begun babysitting for family friends at the age of 12. During high school I enrolled in an early childhood education concentration and completed 3 years of course work and practicums in the concentration, including areas in education of the child with special needs. I became a full-time live-in nanny of 3 young children upon graduation of high school, meanwhile attending college. For 5 years, I have also worked as a summer preschool teacher in an early learning center that provides daycare and preschool for infants, toddlers, and children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. I am looking to gain more experience with infants as I am interested in becoming a neonatal nurse practitioner. I have a Health Provider certification for CPR and AED as well as a Infant/toddler/preschool teaching certificate. I have a strong resume and excellent references. I look forward to making new connections with children and their families.
