Alexis R. - Seeking Work in Charleston

17.14 / hour

I have babysat/been a nanny previously for different families with kids of all ages (a few months old-13 years old) for the past 7 years. I have also coached gymnastics, been a camp counselor and for the past year was a volunteer assistant coach for the Special Olympics swim team in Clemson. I just graduated from Clemson University earlier this month and will be home for the summer before working with Disney in August. I have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to fun indoor/outdoor activities to do with children to keep them entertained while also helping them in an educational way as I previously wanted to be an elementary education major before switching into business. I'd be up for taking the kids out to the beach, park, movies, etc., as well as staying at home to read with them, play outside, have game time, or anything really.

My love for childcare began when I enrolled in a babysitting course through my local park district which taught a basic understanding of what it takes to care for children, since then I've accumulated a vault of knowledge and experience in what it truly takes: unconditional love, endless patience, and a sense of humor. I hold all of these characteristics to high importance and truly believe in and live through them daily. This has allowed me to have rich experiences throughout the last 8 years as a full-time nanny. I believe learning through exploration, art, reading, nature, and outdoor observations offers children a rich experience and nurturing each child's interests helps them become strong solid people who respect themselves. I am trustworthy, reliable, punctual, detail-oriented, well-organized, patient, adaptive, and an active team player. If you're looking for a caregiver who can truly become a part of supporting the growth of your family, please feel free to contact me.

Hello all, my name is Patti. Thank you for viewing my profile. I have owned two day-cares within my home. One in Brunswick, GA and one in Ferandina Beach, Florida. I cared for children between the ages of infancy and 13 years old. I did this for approximately eight years. I worked for a family up in Raleigh, NC taking care of their two children, ages three and four. I did this for almost four years until I moved down to Charleston in July. Currently, I work at a school with children ages 18 months to six years old. I am a grandmother of 9, a mother of 3 and I have been married 35 years. I am a very experienced childcare provider with a lot of passion for what I do. I am happy to cook, run requested errands and do light housekeeping if needed. I am looking for a long term family and preferably full time. Thank you for viewing my profile and I look forward to hearing from you.

I’ve been involved in childcare for over 14 years, working with children of all different ages. I’m passionate about providing a safe, fun environment where kids know they are loved and taken care of. I previously was a nanny to three different families, two summer positions, and one full-time position. Each of these wonderful families consisted of both parents working, but it was a great honor and privilege getting to work so closely with these families and tend to their children, their daily activities, schedules, and routines. Being a nanny is a rewarding experience and I’d love to be given the opportunity to invest in your children and family.

I have cared for up to three children, including infant. I also tutor and drive to extracurricular/after-school events. I have provided care for mother's on bed-rest and families with home-schooled children. I love the outdoors and being active, which I intend to incorporate with my new family. I also cook, clean and care for pets. I am open and easy-going. I believe children should have manners and respect their elders, which begins with caretakers respecting their children.
