Jillian O. - Seeking Work in Elk Grove

12.54 / hour

I have been babysitting/nannying two girls since the time the older one was one (who is now 4) and since the younger, two-year old, was born. I love their family and still see the two girls as often as I can. I have also nannied for my cousin's two daughters, ages 5 and 3. They were family, but they had recently moved close to us and I didn't really know the girls all that well. I was able to grow closer to them through babysitting and nannying them. I have also worked at a Athletic Club where I worked with kids ages 7-17. They would hang out in the club and we were responsible for taking care of them and hanging out with them. I have experience with all ages and fall in love with all children that I work with.

I have been caring for newborns, young children, and teenagers for over a decade. My passion and complete ease while caring for children is evident from the start. I take the role of care giver, teacher, and role model with all seriousness and strive to meet a child's needs as well as a parent's expectations; while creating a positive thriving environment. I pride myself in always putting forth 100 percent of my focus, energy, happiness, and love into a child's development and care. The importance of providing a family with a sense of trust, comfort, and support is a must. Expressing a constant dialogue and transparent communication, ensures the best possible relationship between parent's and their care provider. I look forward to meeting new parents and their children, hoping to become an important asset in one families life.

Hello, My name is Laurie. I live in Elk Grove and I'm 19 yrs old. I know that I am a very good candadite for what you're asking for. I have 3 neices and I've had much experience with them at all ages. My Sister & her daughters have lived me with on various occasions so I'm very used to being around children. I'm very familiar with making bottles, changing diapers, temper-tantrums & everything in-between. I am also fluent in Sign Language if that is something you would want your child exposed too. My older sister is deaf & my mom taught me from the time I was 3 yrs old. I also helped my nieces become familiar with it so they could communicate with their mom more. When I was in my church's youth group, I was in charge of the Nursery occasionally & I babysat for women in the congregation regularly. I would read to the kids, do arts & crafts. I enjoyed it very much. I love being around children, no matter what age. I don't see it as a job, I see it as a very fun privilege.

While attending college in Monterey Bay I volunteered for three years at the youth and teen center. It was my job to supervise the children, conduct fun activities, help them one-on-one with any concerns they had, and to help them with their homework. I have also passed the No Child Left Behind test to certify that I can provide proper tutoring for K through 12th grade children. I have had nanny care prior to that as a babysitter with a family of two children for a year and a half before the family moved. They had a 6 year old and an 8 year old. I was a non-live in babysitter.
