Amber P. - Seeking Work in Oceanside

Hourly rate17.14 / hour

Hi! My name is Amber and I am happily married to a Marine, I am 31 years old and a mother of a wonderful 8 year old son. I just moved here from Michigan about 1 year ago but while living in Michigan I attended Wayne State University. I am earning an Special Education Teaching degree. I have worked in the school district as a teacher assistant for special education. I loved my job because it was different everyday. I was able to work with a variety of ages and disabilites. I also was a nanny for a family of 4 children for 5 years. At that job I was lucky enough to have my children present with me..so I was watching 5 children at once. The childrens ages were 13, 8, my son was 6, 5 and the baby was 1. I also nannied for a another family for 3.5 years but only 1 to 2 days a week. They had a 13 year old, 10 year old and a daughter that was almost 4. Through them I was recommended to family and was also the nanny 1-2 days a week for a 1 year old and a 3 year old. I have been babysitting since I was 15. I was the head leader. I had 3 employees under me along with 2 teens that helped out. Together, we were in charge of planning activities for close to 100 students aged 6-12 for the summer. We also went on a field trip every Friday. I love the family that I nannied for here in Ca for the last year but due to job change, I am now in search of another long term family. I am looking for a nanny/personal assistant position, working between 20- 40+ hours a week. I have over 100 college credits working towards a special education/ elementary education degree with a major in psychology. The children that I cared for, nurtured and engaged with are a 2 year old boy and 4 years old girl. I maintain the children's routines in regards to naps and meals as both children thrive on routine and consistency. I use positive discipline and redirection methods. I have taken several parenting classes through the community. I do not believe in spanking or yelling at children for any reason. I am very energetic, honest and complete all tasks that have been asked of me in a timely manner. I am not the type of nanny that will just watch your children, I interact with them. I prefer to be out doing any type of activities that children will enjoy. Along with providing a developmentally appropriate environment for both children. I created age appropriate activities for them. We alternated between botanical gardens, legoland, the beach, the park, Balboa park puppettime, the zoo or animal park, hikes or stroller walks, story time at the library, as well as other various activities that may have occur during the week. I also brought the children to extra curricular activities such as swim lessons and gymnastics. I was responsible for picking up the house and keeping up with children's laundry while the children nap or in between if time allowed. Safety is my top priority. I was also responsible for grocery shopping for the family and occasionally throw a simple dinner together for parents when needed. I prepared nutritious meals for children (breakfast, lunch and dinner) I do not drink, smoke or do drugs. I am willing to be drug tested. I am Infant/child/Adult first aide and CPR qualified. I have a perfectly clean background check along with a good driving record. I have a 2006 SUV that is in great running condition. I am very organized and able to multi task. I have excellent references for each family I have nannied for. As a parent myself, I understand how important it is to have the peace of mind knowing your children are safe while you are not able to be there with them. I would love to offer that to you. I have never called in to work. I have ALWAYS given months notice for a day off. I understand that in order for you to go to work, I must go to work as well. I live in the Oceanside area. Thank you for taking the time to read this. If I sound like someone of interest to you please give me a call and I would love to meet you and your children. Amber

Hi! I am trained in CPR and First-Aide. My first priority is to keep your child safe. I have recently been caring full-time for a darling 11 month old baby girl. I have been with her for 4 months and I just adore her, she is so much fun. Now, unfortunately, she and her family are moving. Before that I was with a family with two boys, age 3 and one almost 2 and another family with a 5 yr old boy and a 5 mo old girl. I'm going to miss them :) I also do occasional date night babysitting for another family. I am a proud Grandmother of three great kids. I love the little ones... when they're at that age where they follow you around and chat away to you for hours, so cute :) I always babysit for my grandchildren on my two days off and have done this since they were born. I have cared for four children from infancy through their teen-age years. I have recently retired from 20 years in a restaurant management position and would like to find a family to work full-time with. My Management experience shows that I am a very responsible and stable person. I enjoy reading to the kids and teaching them new things, going for walks, playing or doing crafts. I love the outdoors and I love kids. I also excel at working with you to keep your baby on a healthy routine. I would love the opportunity to meet with you and your little one.
