I have cared for children off and on for 30 years. I started off by helping a friend out and had so much fun with the kids that I wanted to do it for a career. I enjoyed raising my own as well. I took early child care classes and have a two year certification from tech. school... The military kept me busy, but worked with child learning centers out of state when stationed in other cities.I have references when asked for.Some of them are grown now and I do not know their location or status.I am a mother and grandmother and very active on my own. I am not scared to the point of not being able to keep up...I swim, fish like sports and camping.. being active is good.I do believe that learning is a part of having fun, and I have a very unique way of combining both, since I used to be an art Instuctor Volunteerly, I can associate both. I am an outdoor person by far and love to travel.So I am pretty flexiable when it come to having fun.

My child care experience started as a baby sitter in high school. My calling to help children started when I was the teacher's assistant for the kindergarten at my school as a senior in high school. As an adult, I have provided childcare for my baby cousin, been the children's social director at a church for a year, was den mom for my son in cub scouts, was dugout mom and am raising two intelligent, happy and healthy teenage boys. I was fortunate to be able to stay home with them in the early years, but I have also experienced the concerns of leaving them with various types of childcare situations. I fully understand the need for parents to feel their child is safe and well cared for, above all else.

In high school I worked at a dance camp with children ages 2 to 9 years old, for 3 years. I then attended Endicott College as an education major and completed a month long internship with a 1st grade class as well as LEAP preschool. I completed my pre-practicum in a preschool in Beverly, MA and completed my student teaching in a first grade and kindergarten classroom in Salem, MA. I was a trained lifeguard for 3 summers while teaching swim lessons to ages 5-11 and worked with LEAP preschool at their summer camp for 2 years working with children ages 4 months to 4 yrs. I then graduated from Endicott College with my early childhood education Licensure and my EEC certification. I was a summer nanny for two children ages 4 and 7. This past summer I was a nanny for a wonderful family in Lexington, MA with children ages 7, 9, and 10. These past few months I have been a nanny for a 3 yr old girl, sadly her family has decided to move.
Sofia P. - Seeking Work in Gainesville

Hourly rate8.71 / hour

I have two younger siblings; they are ages 8 and 10. I have helped watch them basically since they were born. Aside from that, I began babyysitting for a family just down the street when I was in middle school, about 12 or 13 years old. For 7 years I have baan babysitting a family with three boys. They definitely taught me how to be patient yet firm when watching kids. They were very active boys and we were always outside. They often had neighbors over which was added fun. In my time babysitting them, the youngest boy was born and I have watched him grow from a newborn to a crazy fun toddler. I have watched other families, most with multiple children. I have helped with homework with most of the kids, and very often made meals. I have had jobs as more of a nanny than a babysitter where I had to drive the children to and from activities, as well.
