Full-time hours

Hello! Since I was young, I have always enjoyed taking care of children. My neighbors all had children younger than me and they would ask me to take care of their children frequently. I have about 4 years (2005-2009) of babysitting experience watching children of multiple ages. I went to the University of Maryland in Baltimore County for two years (2010-2012). I took 2 semesters of introductory child care courses and 2 semesters of upper level child care courses and now I am focusing on starting a full time job providing care to children. I moved to New Jersey in June 2012 and started watching a 1 1/2 year old boy. I was with him for about a year before he started full time daycare. Through his family I met the next family who I am currently with. I started working with their 1 1/2 year old boy and a couple months later his little brother was born. I have been taking care of him since he was 3 months old and now the older brother is 3 years old and his little brother is 15 months old. I will be moving to the New Windsor area within the month so I am now looking for a loving family there. I have experience with every age group and multiples but mostly with newborns, infants and toddlers. Not only do I enjoy playing and having fun with the kids, I know it is also very important to help them grow mentally. I want to grow with the children and family to make this experience a trusting and fun relationship.

Since I was 9 years old I willingly helped my mother with my little brother by feeding him, changing his diapers, bathing him, and putting him to bed. I always had a love for teaching him. As he grew up I attend his games, took him to practice, and helped put together his uniform. While my mother worked at the office, I helped with doctors appointments and teacher/parent conferences. When my mother would go out of town for a few days at a time, I would stay home with my brother. I would take him to Busch Gardens, movie theaters, dinning out, or any other events he enjoyed. I have been recommended by many mothers for babysitting jobs. Last summer, I was asked by someone in my church to take care of his 6, 10, and 12 year-old children. I would make sure they ate at least 3 meals and snacks in between. They loved the pool and the library. They were recommended to have a silent reading time for at least an hour so that they did not spend too much time using technology. I've also volunteered as a teacher at a Church where I taught children from the ages of 7-11. I've held a position there for over a year. I've also been in the youth ministry ages 11-18 going on 3 years. I was offered a Nanny job last August for a 6 month old infant. I care for the baby from 8am-6:30pm. Unfortunately, this position will be ending when the baby is 12 months old.

All my life I have babysat for experience and an extra income, however when I entered college I was interested in teaching. I was employed by a wonderful family with three girls (3,5,7) and I worked for them as a babysitter during the semester and nanny in the summer. I stayed over night for days at a time, cared for their house and pets. I was also responsible for tutoring, bathing, meal prep, personal help, errands, and family support through difficult circumstances. I have a bachelors in education and throughout the school year I teach 4th grade in Florida. I will be living in Chicago for the summers, and would love to provide families with reliable care and also further my education and knowledge as well.

I have been a nanny in the past to a family with three kids starting from ages 6-10, until they were 8-12. Responsibilities included everything from food shopping for the family, to homework help, meal preparation, and supervision at the pool. I have experience with bipolar children and children with ADHD as well. At times working for the most recently family I nannied for, I would have 8 children to watch including all of the children's friends. The most recent nanny job I had was for two years until I moved. The job prior to that was caring for a 4 year old. I was responsible for getting the child ready in the mornings, feeding her, and driving her to school. Aside from these two nanny jobs, I babysat for multiple families since I was very young. Ages ranged from 2-12. I am starting to develop more experience with infants and babies now that I have a niece and nephew.
