Nicole  M. - Seeking Work in Charleston

15.00 / hour
6 yrs of experience

I started babysitting when I was 13 years old as a mother's helper, and found that I had a passion for working with children. I have maintained a weekly position for a local family for over four years, and have some basic early childhood education training. I have previously worked for Country Kids Schoolhouse in Bedford NY, and have experience with infants, toddlers, elementary and middle schoolers.(Multiple references from Country Kids can be provided upon request). I have a handful of families that request my service for date nights and for extended periods of time, including over-nights. I love my job as a babysitter because I am constantly being rewarded with every child's growth, while also being challenged and always kept on my toes. I believe my patience and deep love for children is what makes me best at my job as a role model. I am currently attending the College of Charleston where I am am majoring in Psychology. I am available Monday's and Friday’s from 1:30pm- evening, and Wednesday’s from 4:30pm-evening, with some open availability on fridays and the weekends. If you think we would be a good fit, I would love to set up a time to meet with you and hear more about what you are looking for. Thank you in advance for your consideration

5 yrs of experience

My name is Kate. I am 28 years old and originally from Columbus, Ohio. I have a Bachelor's of Science degree from Kent State University. I have been involved in childcare since I was 10 years old. In college, I nannied during the summer full-time and nannied part-time during the school year. I have over 16 years of childcare experience and over 5 years experience as a professional full-time nanny/house manager.

I love children and the challenge of raising them and the reward of watching them grow. I have a very loving, accepting, and patient personality. I'm full of energy and love to have fun and laugh. I left my industry as a Fashion Design major to continue to pursue my career as a professional nanny because I missed working with kids so much. I don't desire to be involved in a daycare scene, I desire to be apart of one family, long-term, and be loyal and committed to their needs. I want to become a member/extension of their family. I view my career not only as a job, but a passion. I'm not just here for a paycheck. My heart is with children.

I am a rising junior at the Univerisity of South Carolina. I am from Charlotte, North Carolina, but am living in Charleston for the summer. I have been babysitting since I was little because I grew up in a very family oriented neighborhood. I was a summer league swim coach for my neighborhood pool for the past 6 years and lifeguarded for 2 years at the same pool. My whole entire life I have been surrounded by little kids and I enjoy having fun with them (playing outside, swimming, or teaching them to swim if they don't know how), but I am also very skilled in making sure they do what they are told. My availability is pretty much whenever!
