Nia T. - Seeking Work in Cypress

I am a mommy to an amazing, smart, handsome, 4 year old boy. He is my world! Kids are truly a blessing, I know he has been for me. I have had paid experience caring for kids since I was 13. I have completed courses in Parenting Education, Child Development and Child Psychology. These classes have given me an insight on how the minds of babies and kids may operate. It has enlightened me and the knowledge has provided me with great patience when caring for kids. I understand the stages and phases kids travel. Child Psychology in particular helps me with the teaching aspect, because it helps me understand how most kids learn, how they think and what phases they go though at certain ages. Not only has Parenting Education been a course I took, it is a life lesson for me. Because I am actually a mother, the passion, the love, the nurturing has come naturally for me. The Education of Parenting is life long! I am dedicated to what I do, this is not just a job for me. I do this because I actually love to care for kids. Childcare does not come easy, and kids are not to be tampered with. They are so precious, and It takes the right caregiver/teacher to nurture their minds in a positive way and teach them in a way that they enjoy learning. - I have worked for Daycares for over 2 years. In the duration of those 2.5 years... I started out with toddlers, I cared for 15 tots in a class at once. I have also cared for 5 newborn/infants at once, 19 preschoolers in my class alone and 30 kindergarten students in my class alone. In addition to that I've provided in-home care for 5 years, kids ranging from Premature Newborn to 13 year olds.

Since March, I have been working 2 part-time nanny jobs. Unfortunately, one of my employers lost her job and is now a work-at-home mom, so she no longer needs a nanny. For that family, I worked 3-4 days a week, caring for a kindergartener before and after school and all day during the summer. I also ran errands, did grocery shopping, and some housekeeping (laundry, dishes, etc.). For the other family, I still work one day a week, caring for a one year old, three year old, and a first grader. Prior to my current employment, I have 6+ years of paid childcare experience, and 20+ years of volunteer/unpaid childcare experience. Before having children of my own, I worked in daycare, as an infant caregiver and toddler teacher. While raising my children, I kept a couple of other children in my home as well. I home-schooled my own children for 11 years, and I'm willing to home-school for others also. I have volunteered every week in my church infant nursery for the past 5 years, and monthly before that. I teach 2-year-olds once a week in a children’s Bible study program during the school year, and I work with older children during VBS each summer. I'm offering individualized childcare in your home, with the opportunity for one-on-one education. If I might be the nanny you're looking for, I would be happy to send you my resume and references.

I have had experience with working with children for over 8 years. I have worked for families, preschools and day cares of children ranging from infants to 8th graders and now have 2 boys of my own, a 4 year old and a 10 month old. While I have learned and enjoyed all of my experiences I believe that parenting and Nanning has given me the most experience. I have recently decided to become a bus driver and go back to school for teaching. It feels good to be able to help parents with their most treasured gifts which are their children. I enjoy being with children and the more the better. I believe everyday a child can learn just as easily as they play. I love playing at the park, hiking and splash pads. My favorite places to go are the zoo, library and children’s museum. I am looking for place where I can be respected for what I do and be happy doing it, and I hope to become a permanent summer nanny for the right family.

My current nanny job for six-year old boy/girl twins is coming to an end due to the mother’s job has changed instead of economic challenges. Spending time with very sociable, smart, loving kids like them has kept me on my toes and has been filled with many memorable moments that I will treasure forever. My job consisted of: organizing their bedrooms and game area, washing their clothes, picking them up from school, helping them with their homework, playing outside and at playgrounds (our favorites have been playing basketball, walking and riding bikes, have water parties), enjoying small art projects at home like cooking, painting, making cards and jewelry, collecting rocks and leaves, doing puzzles on the floor, having tea, play dates with their friends, reading books, and many more. I've prepared their meals and given them baths at the end of the day. When their parents were out-of-town, I spent the night, prepared breakfast and took them to school.

I currently watch 4 amazing little boys which in reality have become more like my own children. I' all honesty the reason I'm on the site is to see what other opportunities are out there. I would only leave my family I currently work for if the hours would be better and if I would be making more money. I love children while heartedly. I want more then anything to have my own. My husband and I are currently ttc. I will be looking to still have half of my health insurance be paid for. I know this is alot that is why I'm telling everything up front. So on to my experience with my family I watch. I watch 4 boys under 5, there will be a 4 yr old, 3 yr old, 2 yr old and a 1 yr old atthe end of September. I do all the laundry including parents, I make dinner every night. I have been with them since the oldest was 8 months. I was his teacher in a private daycare when he was 3months. you might be thinking why would I leave my current family. It's strictly about money and not feeling appreciated.
