Sarah P. - Seeking Work in Jacksonville

I have always been fond of children. I started babysitting in high school and when I attended college I worked at an all girls summer camp for two years. I was a counselor who lived in bunks with the girls ranging from 5th to 6th grade and acted in loco parentis for the summer. I would help with daily bunk cleaning, preparing for the day, helping the girls gather laundry, supervising daily activities, ect. I also taught horseback riding to girls of all ages and all levels of experience. I have currently been watching two boys, ages 6 and 9 for the past year but have had experience babysitting children anywhere from 10 months to 10 years.

I was a nanny for one family that I adored! I loved helping the baby learn to crawl, walk, get on a new nap schedule, and watch him enjoy new food. His 4 year old sister was a blast to work with. She was above her level and we learned how to add, subtract, cook, try new foods, and practice her writing skills. I've also worked at a daycare working with infants and toddlers. Watching them change from a Friday afternoon to Monday morning was amazing. I've also done occasional babysitting for families with children around toddler age. When a child sees you here and there but still recognizes you every time you come over it just makes you realize how great of a job you are doing.

I currently work for an amazing family that is planning a move out of the state. I have been with this 1 and 3 year old since August 2014. Watching the 3 year old excel in her education and teaching the 1 year old to walk and learn new words has truly been a rewarding experience. I also do quite a few side babysitting jobs on the weekends. I have experience with special needs children as well.
