I am interested in challenging children to be the best they can be while creating a loving atmosphere and environment full of learning and fun. I am nurturing and organized and always on time! I started babysitting at the age of 9, nannying at 16, and have plenty of experience with a variety different types of children at various stages in their lives. At 16, I received my first nanny job for a newborn boy. I was with him part-time for two years. At the same time, I also worked with middle school aged kids up to teenagers. I was there for one year. In 2007 I went back to the xx. I tutored children ages 5 to 14, and was a summer camp counselor; I was responsible for up to 21 children at one time in an eight-hour period, everyday for three months. I have also been a nanny for a family with three girls, twins (since birth) and their 18-month-old sister and frequently sat for them for 7 years. I also have been a nanny for another set of twins (two 5-year-old boys) and their 10-year-old older sister. I have been a part-time mother's helper for a 10, 7, and 1-year-old too. I was also a live-in nanny for one year (2009-2010) and still keep in contact with that family! Currently, I am a nanny for a 3-year-old and 1-year-old, 3-4 days a week and have been with this family for two and a half years. I have also been an Educational Assistant (K-12) for a school district, that includes special needs classrooms also. As of now, the family that I am currently a part of has to knock me down to occasional sitting which means I will be searching for a new position for around 30-40 hours a week. The children who I have had the pleasure of working with who have special needs have had autism, ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, severe food allergies, epilepsy, Kabuki's Syndrome, and cerebral palsy all one-on-one but also in classrooms with up to 12 children with other various situations also. I hope you are the right family for me, and I am the right person for you!

Full Time Experienced Nanny Endless Bellevue, Sammamish, Issaquah, Redmond Hello my name is Alison. I am a twenty-one - year - old experienced nanny. From a young age I have been very passionate about caring for children. I began babysitting when I was ten years old. When I was twelve years old I began taking care of a family in my neighborhood. I picked the kids up from the bus stop after school, prepared a snack, dinner, and did homework with them. I soon found out this is what I loved doing and wanted to be a full - time nanny from that point on. In high school I continued to Nanny for different families and found it very rewarding to see children grow and change over the years with my help. When I graduated in June of 2008 I began to work for a daycare center in the infant room. For two months I worked with eight babies at a time with one other employee or up to four by myself. I soon decided to pursue a full time nanny job. In January 2009 I met a great family and began working 40 hours a week for them. Unfortunately earlier in April 2009 my employer lost her job and no longer needed my service. In September 2009 I started work for two families in one home in Snoqualmie Ridge. I am still currently employed by them. When I started in September the children were 7,5,2,19months,and 2months. Now they are 8,7,3,3,and 1. I work Monday through Friday 11 hours a day a total of 55 hours a week. Currently both of the moms are pregnant. I have resigned to find a new job closer to home with less hours. I am looking for a loving family that wants consistent, quality childcare for their children. Not too strict but always with the best interest the children in mind. My age group is newborn to five but I also take care of big sisters and brothers and can take/pick up from school. (I am looking for long term full time position so you must have at least one little one.) I cook, clean, do dishes and laundry if needed. I have a safe, insured car and can drive children to preschool, play dates, ex. I like to limit TV and video game time and replace it with board games and educational activities. Although I am happy to follow your parenting values if they differ. Please E-mail me for a list of references if you are interested. -Aly

Started baby sitting at age 10 in our church nursery. By 13 I was teaching sunday school to preschool/kindergarten and was on the baby sitting list at a resort that was nearby our family home. I traveled on christmas and spring break with a family that had a summer/weekend home on the golf course where we lived, to be the sitter on demand. When I was 20 I gained employment as a true Nanny. I learned a lot from that very first job and that was it was as important for the family to like me as it was for me to like the family. My first job was just that a job and it didn't take long for me to begin my search for another position, but this time it was with a family that was wonderful. I was fortunate to have found them and it was a life enriching experience. The boys were 1 and 4 when I started and 8 and 11 when I moved on to my next position as the Mother had decieded to be a stay at home Mom. In my new place I was the household manager so I had many other responsibilities in addition to the children. A boy and a girl age 6 months and 4 years. I did everything from errands, shopping, cooking, arranging catering for parties, hand addressed over 1,000 invitations for a large fundraiser for the arts, managed a staff of 4 full time and 3 part time, budget, expense reports, travel arrangements etc. I stayed there for 3 years and that brings me to my last position where the children were age 3 and 7 when I started. The older child wrote me recently. She is grown now and recently married. She said that her foundest childhood memories are the time I spent with their family. I loved them all dearly. I left the family after several years to get married and start my own family.

As a nanny, my number one priority is nurturing child development, mentally, emotionally, psychologically and academically. Experience reveals that parental values must co-align with my own in order to develop a successful and long-lasting relationship. As a parent viewing my site, rest assured that my role acts to complement your own values. That said, I will work best with someone who stresses a healthy lifestyle in all areas, extending far beyond nutritional and physical health. I work to develop communication and critical thinking skills in children from the moment I am able to engage with them, which has often preceded a child's capacity to speak verbally. Body language is very much a means of communication and children learn to communicate long before they use spoken word. One of my favorite quotes is by Ancient Greek philosopher, Aristotle, who wrote, "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” Thus, while I do not identify with any religion or political position, I at the very least engage in dialogue about matters concerning religion, politics and more, with parents and children. My ideal family will be open to developing an understanding of a concept and or problem from multiple perspectives. As Existentialist philosopher Nietzsche once said, "There are no facts, only interpretations," I find it extremely important to listen and, more importantly, to understand before acting on any situation. Children often find a sense of peace around me as I allow room for growth and development through open communication - which often times involves more listening than instructing. At no time do I advocate my own beliefs to children or parents. I merely engage in dialogue for the purpose of exploration.

Hi my name is Taylee, i am 26 yrs old. I have been babysitting for about 12 years and a full time Mother of 2 (Natalia 6yrs & Paetyn 2 months). I have had experience with children ages new born to 12 years old. When I was younger I watched children on a daily basis when they came home from school or on the weekends. I helped them with their homework, fed them dinner, bathed the children, and put them in bed. I also have experience watching my younger brother and younger cousins. I still continue to have experience with children babysitting on weekends whenever I am needed.
