Jessica  D. - Seeking Work in Kirkland

For years I have baby sat for my family. I would help out with infants and toddlers as well. Watching and caring for them as they grew older gave me the opportunity to experience caring for children ages newborn to about 5 years of age. I was more experienced with older children, but I just had a son of my own May of 2014. This has given me LOTS of experience and I have learned so much about caring for an infant. I am in mommy-mode 24/7!

I have over 20+ years of experience caring for children from newborn to preteens. I have found that my calling in life is to be around the little people of the world. I enjoy working and growing with children. I love hearing their laughter and when the time comes, drying their tears. I enjoy art and crafts, field trips, walks in the park/neighborhood and going on fun adventures and play dates. Currently, I am working as a part-time nanny for a family that I have been with for six years and part-time as a massage practitioner. My current nanny position is closing soon and I feel that this is a good transition time for me to find a full-time nanny position. I am looking for a position that will ideally start in mid-April. Please let me know if you have any further questions. I look forward to meeting you and your little one(s) soon!

I am very enthusiastic and positive person so working with children is a joy for me. I don't even consider it as a job because I love children and enjoy being around them. I have more than four years in baby sitting. I taught children English language and helped them learn and grow. I engaged children in home activities by reading them stories and playing games with them. I made sure children enjoyed their day by taking them out for a walk and to parks. I ensured that children ate on time and went to bed on time as per their daily routine. I maintained healthy and safe environment at all times.
