Full-time hours

ENERGETIC, RETIRED PROFESSIONAL WITH YEARS OF EXPERIENCE I am a retired attorney from Columbia. I love children and raised two boys who are now productive, responsible adults of whom I am very proud. In my previous position I was caring for two children, 18 months and three years old, (both parents are professionals). I was completely in charge of the children from waking in the early morning to bedtime. I prepared all their meals, dropped them off and picked them up from school, took care of their clothes, their laundry, grocery shopping as needed, kept the household organized and taught them Spanish, good morals and manners. Above all, though, our time together was fun and positive. I am honest, hard-working and very responsible. I hope to find a position where I ‘fit’ with the family and can be a true benefit. I am flexible as to schedule but will need at least forty hours per week.

I have nine years of cummulative, paid childcare experience, including experience with multiples, children with special needs, tutoring and youth mentoring. I have a bachelor's degree and additional training in child and youth development. I am currently a live-out nanny for twin 3 year olds, one of whom is severely brain damaged. For the child with special needs, I assist in tracheotomy suctioning and care, bathing, feedings through a G-tube and various occupational and physical therapy. I take the healthy child out on excursions to the library, parks, museums, swimming lessons, etc. and generally provide stimulating and individualized attention through games, puzzles, arts and crafts and outdoor activites. Around the household I provide basic cooking, housekeeping, errand running and organizational duties. I also frequently stay overnight. I worked at a private preschool for six months, where I worked with children from infants up to age twelve. In addition to my time spent in the classrooms, my duties also included transporting/chaperoning children on the many field trips we went on this summer and transporting children on before and after school drop offs/pick ups. I have extensive experience as a babysitter and have been caring for the children of many families for six years now, with ages ranging from three months to thirteen years, including several sets of multiples. Additionally, I volunteered extensively at several orphanages and schools for special needs for over six months while I was in India studying abroad.

My training in infant care covers full care including feeding (breast milk/formula), bathing, diapering, soothing (5 S's), swaddling, holding, burping, nutrition, illnesses and more. In addition, I am aware of developmental milestones and how to stimulate and encourage learning with natural play. My experience includes caring for infants as young as one week, organizing and directing various children’s groups, filling many short-term temporary child care assignments for children of all ages and providing long-term nanny services to five wonderful families over the past 20 years. I began with Hannah when she was 6 months old and provided 3½ years of home care until she entered preschool. Our days together were filled with love, laughter and learning. I cherish my continued close relationship with Hannah and her family. Her 21st birthday is November 2017. Jake, a delightful boy, was 6 months old when I began home care. He loved singing, cars and games. Like Hannah under my care, Jake was verbally advanced for his age. Before turning two, Jake happily and successfully completed potty training. For fifteen months, I cared for children from two families simultaneously. I began with these families when their children, Madeleine and Sean, were both 6 months old. I enjoyed the differences in their development and growth. For the past three years, I was nanny to McKenzie, who was 10 weeks old when I began, and her sister, Aubrey, who was born two years ago. These sisters loved reading, singing, dancing, crafts and outdoor activities. McKenzie is excellent at make-believe play; Aubrey is fearless at exploration. Both girls are now in school and Mom is home. My goal when supplying child care services is to provide consistency and dependability. My first priority is to support the family as a whole and to help the family’s life run more smoothly. I seek to provide peace of mind and security for the family by nurturing the children in a loving, safe, joyous environment while stimulating interest and learning and promoting confidence and positive self-image. When interacting with children, I seek to provide a warm, comforting physical presence and to support individual differences and uniqueness and to encourage each child's participation. My philosophy is each day is a celebration, each hour is a wonder, each minute is an opportunity to learn. I believe that learning is fun and “there for the taking” as learning is experiencing. The point is to experience. Books, music, and exploration are great learning experiences. Later learning experiences include participation in daily personal and household activities and exposure to languages, movement, art, sports, and individual interests. I love participating with children in all these activities.

As the oldest daughter of 5, I have been around children my entire life. I grew up babysitting children and taking care of my siblings. Once I started to attend college I would spend my summers nannying two different families. One family had two children ages 8 and 10 and the other family had one child who was 10 months. I was the nanny for both families for two years before I moved officially to Orlando to attend college at UCF. Once I moved to Orlando I got a job as a nanny for newborn twins. I have been with them for two years watching them full time during the summer and part time during the school year. I have been able to watch them start grow from just 2 months old to almost 2 years old. I have been there for almost all of there firsts and I have loved every minute of it. In December, I graduated from UCF with my Bachelors in Elementary Education and a Reading Endorsement in ages K-12th. I was hired as a full time teacher in Orange County for the remainder of the school year. As I taught, I realized that my heart was not so much in teaching but in having a personal relationship with children and being a personal nanny to a loving family. Because of my degree I am able to tutor children along with giving them the care and attention they deserve. I can assist children with homework and also tutor them over the summer in all areas.

Ever since I graduated from High School I have been working in the childcare realm. I really love kids no matter the age, they are amazing to me. I have developed a love for children from my Grandmother. She has owned her own daycare for at least 22 years now. I can also say that I get my care for children from her. After working with her for a year after I graduated High School, I moved here to Florida. I found myself with kids again as I substituted for Orange County for 2 years. Substituting wasn't as consistent as I needed it to be so I had to move on. The next 4 years I had the privilege of working as a toddler teacher and caring for infants. It was at a local xx daycare. It went well and I was asked to consider staying but all along, my family was growing and by the end of the fourth year, I decided to stay home with my own children. I ran a small,in-home daycare for over 2 years until my fourth little one was born. I enjoyed it and plan to reopen once my little ones are school-aged. Now I'm enjoying the ability to focus on my kids and the daily tasks of a home maker. My, wonderful husband works for the public school system and may have this summer off. That is why I am seeking a summer position. I believe that caring for children in a personal atmosphere as in the home would encourage me to use the skills I have to the utmost.
