Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

In addition to over 10 years of babysitting, I have two years of experience working with children in the formal setting. First, I worked as a day care teacher's aide caring for children ages 6 weeks to 7 years. I did everything from diaper changes, potty training, meal preparation, educational instruction, and of course fun and games! Last summer, I ran a classroom of over 30 second and third graders as part of a private school's camp program. I led two field trips each week, organized arts and craft projects, and facilitated games. Both experiences were so memorable and enjoyable, and I am now looking to become a nanny for an individual family. I am able and willing to care for any type of family, including those with multiple or special needs children. I am primarily looking for a full-time position for the summer, but would be willing to consider working with a family through the school year.
Leslie - Seeking Work in Washington Dc

Hourly rate22.85 / hour

I began babysitting when I was thirteen, and have worked with children as a lifeguard and swim instructor, camp counselor, babysitter, child care provider, and teacher ever since. I am currently working toward my Montessori teaching certification at the elementary level and co-taught at a Montessori school last year. Before that I lived and taught in China for ten months, and during my senior year of college I babysat regularly for two families in Charlottesville and worked as an infant child care provider and as needed child care provider for children of all ages at Thomas Jefferson Memorial Church. I have volunteered with Jumpstart to help preschool children learn how to read and have spent three summers as a residential lifeguard and unit leader at Hiram House Camp with girls ages 10-13. Before that I was "Big Sister" to one little girl during the school year at Roanoke, and during the summers taught swim lessons and lifeguarded at my local pool. I have babysat on and off all during this time for families with children aged 9 mos. to 13 years old. As you can see my childcare experience has been various and vast.
