Full-time hours

For the past three years I have enjoyed some of the most fruitful and exciting experiences of my life through caring for children. - I have watched children newborn and older. - I have spent some of my time volunteering through several organizations that cater to babies, middle school aged kids and teenagers, so no matter what the age group, I have developed the skills necessary to be sensitive to the needs of more than one child at a time. - I am able to handle meal preparation, waking up and putting to bed, keeping a set schedule, bringing out a child's gifts and talents (some kids enjoy arts and crafts, others want to play tea), reading, creating a stimulating environment for the child(ren) to learn and develop properly in, tidying up and doing laundry! - Building a relationship with the parents is a must for me. As a long term care provider, my desire is that the family feels comfortable and safe. I also like to keep consistency in the child's life by learning the parents discipline patterns and periodically sending mom and dad updates on how the day is going . -I believe a positive attitude is important in any job! Children are sensitive to the environments they are in and I believe it is my duty as a nanny to keep the smiles alive even in fussy moments, rainy days, and sick days. - I have volunteered over 100 hours at xx Hospital so I am well acquainted with handling sick children and paying attention to those extra needs that nursing a child back to health requires. -While in high school, I took a childhood development class that has really sharpened my understanding with young children and teenagers. Every single person goes through developmental stages and I have learned to become sensitive to the different needs and learning patterns that comes with each stage. - In three years I have come across VARIOUS babysitting and nanny experiences, so I have really found my stride. Sometimes it is almost amazing what kid's can discover (especially when learning how to crawl or walk!), but everyday is an adventure and I am ready to take it on! At the end of the day, I am excited about providing childcare and building relationships with people from all backgrounds. Thank you for taking the time to read over my profile and I look forward to hearing from your family! Currently I work for a great family of five. Three kids (2 yr, 5 yr, 7yr) and two awesome military parents! I have had an awesome time nurturing all three kids, playing with the pets (two dogs, one cat and two Guinea pigs) and building a great relationship with the mom and dad. I spent the summer teaching the 2 yr old the basic colors and animals. I taught the 5 yr old the alphabet and addition. I worked with the 7 yr old on his reading skills and since he is such a math wiz, we learned multiplication as well! I have had a blast playing games with all the neighborhood kids outside and building large forts with pillows and blankets inside.
Erica C. - Seeking Work in DuPont

Full-time hours

I am Erica. I am 24 and recently just made a huge move from Michigan all the way to Washington to better my life. I grew up with a daycare setting because my mom ran a licensed home daycare ever since I was a year old. I am familiar with my state regulations and have been helping care for children my whole life. I believe working with children is my calling. I have been a nanny and have been babysitting since I was 12 years old. I have experience with all age groups; from newborn all the way to school aged. I am looking to nanny a family hopefully full time, but part time would work perfectly also. Before I moved, I was attending a local community college called Kalamazoo Valley Community College. I was studying child and family studies. For over a year I participated in the big brother-big sister program. References available upon request.
