I was the youngest of seven children. Although I had no youngest siblings, my mother did childcare in our home, giving me the experience of caring for children younger than myself. Most of my childcare experience sprouted from the families that I know from my church. I have cared for families with up to seven children, usually on nights and weekends. I also often watch my four nephews, ranging from age 3 to 7 years old. They can be quite a handful, but we have always worked and played well together. Most of my experience comes from a fantastic family with three children. I did part-time nanny work for a family of three adorable girls ranging from age 1 to 7 about two to three evenings a week. They were often the highlight of my week. Together we would make crafts, go to parks, play outside, sing, dance, and invite neighborhood children over to socialize. We always tried to find something creative and safe to do that didn't have to include electronics. I also worked on homework with two of the girls since one was in first grade and the other was currently enrolled in preschool. Together we worked on math flashcards, read books, completed chores, and had pick-up parties to help keep the house clean. No parent likes to come home to a messy house, which is why I helped prepare dinner, do the dishes, and helped the children clean up the messes we make. While occasional discipline was sometimes needed, I treat all children with respect, and in return I've found children respond with more love if you treat them with pure kindness. Recognizing that children are often most influenced by their peers and those they spend time with, I work to be a good role model for children and teach them good manners and values. I understand the importance of a trustworthy, responsible, and reliable childcare provider and have always worked to be the type of caregiver that I would want for my children.

I honestly love children- something about them. They are special little people. I have grown up babysitting, for my younger siblings when I was little. When I was older, 12 years old, I babysat neighbors, family friends, and friends. I started babysitting part time September 2010. I met 7 different families. Most of the families were occasional weekends but 3 became routine. I graduated high school early in January 2010 and began babysitting full time until I started college at BYU. At BYU, I volunteer at a Children and Family Treatment Center weekly. During this, I would play with the children in the nursery. I have been on several humanitarian trips. I went to Tanzania, Africa in 2008 with Africa is life changing, Inc. We visited two orphanages, several schools, and a hospital. I met many children there and I loved to play with them. In 2009 and 2010 I went to Cusco, Peru to an orphanage. The first time was with a a group and the second time I went by myself and stayed at the orphanage. The children at this orphanage are amazing little children and some of my greatest friends. The first trip, the group helped to build onto the orphanage and onto a nearby school in a village. The second trip, I helped the children at the orphanage in their daily routines, learning english, and working in farming fields in and outside the orphanage. In fall 2010 I went to Iasi, Romania for an internship through BYU. Here we spent half the day in an orphanage for special needs children and half the day in a hospital playing with children without mothers. I saw and experienced things in these two places that I never did before. In the orphanage- we made progress goals for the children and played with them and helped to feed them lunch. In the hospital we always brought pampers and toys to play with children.

I've been babysitting since I was nine years old. I've had families that have regularly called me for jobs and various times I've stayed with kids over a weekend. As well as a regular nannying job where I made meals for the kids and took them to school, at that time I would run errands and clean the house and study, making sure I got things done in time to pick them up in the afternoon, then we would eat and do homework before their mom came home.

I grew up in a family of 10 and I am the baby! I think I will always be a child at heart. I never got to take care of my siblings and I think that's where my love for this comes from. I always wanted to be the big sister! At any family gathering I'm often the one entertaining the kids so the grown ups can socialize. Aside from 3 previous full-time nanny positions I have babysat for countless families, many with 5 kids or more. (Typical for neighborhoods in Utah where I grew up). My duties included cooking, feeding, cleaning, entertaining, helping with home work, reading bed-time stories, and keeping watch sometimes all night. I am a great tutor for all subjects though I really excel in Math and English and beginning Spanish. School work is something I always took pride in and enjoy helping children do the same.

Hi! Here's a little background about me! My husband and I are both studying at universities out in Utah and I'll be graduating in Elementary Education with a double minor in TESOL and dual immersion French teaching this December, needless to say I love working with kids! I've been watching kids since I was 10 years old and I'm 23 so it's been while :) During high school I nannied for a family with 3 boys, although that was challenging it was so fun! We would play outside, go to the neighborhood pool, do a bunch of fun activities in our town (go for picnics, berry picking, movies, etc.). My most current nanny experience was in France where I watched an 8 year old girl for 8 months. I just loved it! I've also had a lot of experience caring for infants as well!

I am the 7th of 10 children and family has always been my number one priority. I babysat my own siblings from the time I was 8, and I babysat for others at the age of 11. I was trusted by many adults in my area and spent a lot of my time babysitting. I have babysat children ranging in age from young infants to 12 year olds many times for both family members as well as friends and neighbors. I am used to having a lot of kids around and I have a big family myself so the more the merrier! My family also does foster care so I have learned a lot through that experience as well. I know there are many different needs that children have and each child is different. I have seen quite the range in my day and I have had many different learning experiences. I spent 2 months teaching in a pre-school that is held on my campus, and I have volunteered in a Kindergarten classroom and the after-school program for the last year and a half at an elementary school nearby. I am going to Ecuador this summer to volunteer in 4 different orphanages and I intend to have a great experience there and learn a lot.
