When I was about ten I began babysitting for my neighbor who just had a newborn, she taught me all about babies and all the important facts there is to know. I was her mom’s helper quite frequently and that's when I fell in love with children and ever since then I have been an active babysitter and nanny. I really feel that being a childcare provider is my niche and I love and thrive on it. I have decided to go back to school and receive my degree in Elementary School Education. I was a nanny for about 5 years for a family with three children. I was with them for 3 to 4 days out of the week at any given time of the day. I was a full time nanny for another family for 2 years with three children. I was with the children 5 days a week from 7am till 7pm. I had to quit due to college beginning. I worked in a daycare for about a year and was let go due to downsizing of the company.

My childcare experience ranges from newborn babies up to 14 years old. I started babysitting as soon as I was old enough and babysat for numerous families in my neighborhood. Up until recently I was employed as a preschool teacher at a private in-home daycare and preschool. Everyday I worked with the kids on fun activities that they would enjoy doing and learn from. I am trusted to be able to take  kids on fun mini field trips to different places. I am a good cook and have made breakfast, lunch, and different snacks for  kids and am always mindful of what is healthy and what isn’t. I have worked with little kids with severe allergies and know how to administer epi-pens and cpr/first aid if ever needed. I am good with giving babies bottles and burping them, changing diapers, calm them when they are upset, and rock them to sleep. I have had experience with babies that have medical issues and need specialized attention. I am good at keeping a calm demeanor and keeping my patience with children at all times. I still keep in close contact with the parents of children I taught and babysit for. I would be happy to provide references if asked!

I enjoyed spending last summer nannying for a child in the area. We had fun going to the pool, doing outdoor activities, going to the movies, and enjoying doing activities both inside and outside of the house. I didn't mind cleaning up the kitchen and the house and often did errands such as grocery shopping and picking up things at the store. Additionally, I have many years of experience babysitting a variety of families with kids of all ages, mostly in the area. In high school, I used to spend entire summers babysitting for a few families and taking care of the kids. I would take them to the park, to the pool, cook them meals, play games with them, take them to their activities, entertain them and keep them safe while also having fun.
