Full-time hours

I am a responsible, mature, flexible, highly adaptable and dependable woman with a natural instinct to care for and nurture children. I have strong family values; respect other people and their property. I understand the importance of having an honest, trustworthy person to care for what we value the most. I think and act with integrity at all times, follow the rules, will initiate new projects to organize/clean, etc. or will complete tasks as I've been instructed to. I enjoy life, laughter and good, clean fun. When I am responsible for caring for a child, that’s exactly what I do…I TAKE CARE OF THEM! I talk to them, play with them, help teach them through age-appropriate activities, read to them or have them read to me, play games (preferably, the non-digital, electronic kind), get active by kicking the soccer ball around together, dancing & singing to sing-a-long songs, doing puzzles or making crafts. Watching television is very rare with me around, unless it is a special part of a routine a parent has established. From May 2010-June 2013, I was a full-time, live-in Nanny/House Manager for a single father with two beautiful little girls (ages 5 & 7, when I started. Now ages 9 & 10). For over 3 years, I worked extremely hard, made many sacrifices and worked extraordinarily long days to help their family become a healthy, happy, harmonious one. As the primary female role-model in girls’ life, I am proud to say that they are doing very well. They are well-adjusted, sociable, compassionate, active girls that are honor-roll students with perfect attendance. They are well-mannered, sensitive, kind, courteous, full of love and are an inspiration to me everyday. After the recent conclusion of a very long and ugly divorce, their father has met a wonderful lady, whom he is now engaged to. She will be moving in right away and taking over all of the responsibilities that I had been carrying out for the family. I am happy to know that we have accomplished exactly what I intended to do when I chose to come accept the position. Their family will soon become whole once again and their home will be filled with the love that every child needs to grow and become all that they can be. This gives me the opportunity to find another fulfilling and rewarding (live-out) position with another family. I believe that honest, open-communication is essential for a successful relationship and only want to work with people that desire stability, structure, a peaceful environment and a healthy, happy, well-balanced life for everyone. Prior to to moving from the Westside of Atlanta to the Eastside for this opportunity, I was a full-time Nanny for an amazing family with 3 boys (ages newborn to 5 years old). In addition, I worked in the Childcare Center at a Church. Every Sunday, I spent my day with 4-5 year olds (I had 3 separate classes-up to 30 children per class). We had a lot fun learning, building with blocks, legos and train sets, coloring or playing interactive games together. I also had several families that I was a regular sitter for. When parents want that much-needed 'date night' out or simply need time alone to attend events, go shopping, etc., I can help in the evenings or weekends. I have some education in the medical field and am currently certified by the American Heart Association for Adult, Child & Infant in First Aid and CPR, as well as AED. I've completed the "lifesaving" course required to be a lifeguard. I am also an active member of the International Nanny Association (INA).

At the age of 21, one of my pride and joys of life is impacting the lives of young children and becoming a better person from them. My child care experience started at the age of 15 when I was to supervise the playing area for kids ranging from 5-12 at a local summer area. From there I began to have a love for kids and also took on babysitting kids in my neighborhood. By the age of 17, I gained the trust of several parents where I would come over and home sit where I was responsible for changing diapers, feeding babies and running errands with the children. Currently, I am heavily involved in the lives of several younger children ranging in age from 1-5! I have had many responsibilities as a nanny but most importantly I have engaged in children's learning experiences, be involved in playtime duties as well as nap time, meal preparation, picking up from school, grocery shopping, and one of the last is laundry duty. I love everything about kids and thats why its rather hard for me to limit this bio to only the most important things! Upon entering Spelman College in 2012, I became an ambassador for the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta, where I worked with kids from all backgrounds. I was responsible for total supervision, bonding and establishing positive relationships, teaching problem solving methods, organizing activities to increase social skills, self respect and anti-bullying tactics. Currently I still take part of this program and have a 2-year-old niece that I have learned to care for since her birth, and I occasionally babysit a close friend's 4-year-old daughter just to gain more experience. My interests include theater/political science. Those are my majors in college. I also love cooking, writing, cheerleading, interacting with kids, shopping, outdoors, and reading. You should choose me over someone else because I truly enjoy enriching the lives of young kids. Ever since I've started working with kids I've found myself bonding with each and everyone of them from doing things like: giving them fun tips on their homework, sharing their favorite hobbies, exploring new games, but most importantly, bettering myself. I may not have had the longest experience, but it doesn't take long to find something you are truly passionate about. I thank you so much for the opportunity.

I have the ability and love to spend time swimming, skating, watching movies, playing different games in the park with children, cooking delicious pancakes or other food, doing handicrafts, and at the moment I´m reading a book titled "Como organizar fiestas y actividades para niños" (How to organize games and parties for children), so I can get new ideas of activities to do with the children that belong to my host family. I also like to study and learn new things, ride horses, four tracks, go out with my friends and go to camp sites. I'm a very delicate and active person. I think that this is so important to take care of children of any age. I had experience and acquired skills taking care children of 1 year or older, with whom I learned to change diapers, prepare and give baby bottles, practice indoor and outdoor activities, play games with groups of 15 children in a daycare center and with only 1 or 2 children (cousins or the children of my mom's friends) in my house. I also learned how to help them in the restroom, give them breakfast, lunch or dinner, teach them vowels, animals or numbers, read stories to them, help them to do handicrafts, carry them and take them in the car to different classes or pick them up at school. From November of 2012 to May of 2013, I was the nanny of two teenager; I used to drive them around to different classes, help them with homeworks and cook them. Then I went to take care of a baby of 1 year and 10 months; to whom I changed her diaper, prepared her baby bottles, teach her Spanish numbers or colors, took her to the park, gaver her baths and sometimes do babysitting with her. And after that I went to do babysitting with the 10 and 12 years old daughters of two police offices, so I used to stay at home since 8:30pm, get them to bed and at the next day wake them up for school, make sure they get ready and have everything in their backpags and then take them to the bus stop.

Hi there! My name is Heather and I have been in Childcare for over 10 years, conquering babysitting, nannying, counseling to children via a Health Department youth group, mentoring, and owning my own Residential Daycare with the state of GA. I am a reliable, trustworthy, patient, understanding, and compassionate individual who has loved helping others for almost 15 years. I have owned my own children's clothing store, am currently in the process of writing a children's book, and have traveled the world, which is how I became a nanny to an affluent London family with three beautiful children. Children have always been my life from an early age, and I'm actually a big kid myself. I studied Children's wear and Business Marketing in college gaining my Bachelor's Degree, and I have a TCC in Early Childhood Development as well. I love fun and exciting outings like jet skiing, boating, horseback riding, monster truck shows, drag boat racing, the opera, the museum, swimming, bike riding in the park and nature walks to name a few. I love to also think that I can sing and dance like Beyonce', but many tell me I should definitely stick to childcare. As you can see, I am a very colorful and unique personality! As a daycare owner, I had to pass an extensive background check, gain my license with the state, as well as become CPR and First Aid certified. Taking classes yearly to stay on top of my craft and stay well informed of new developments in childcare is a must for me. My transportation record is also in great standing, and I have my own mode of reliable transportation. I help with homework, teaching children basic Spanish, potty training, taking children to and from appointments and activities, love to cook healthy yet tasty meals, and doing light housekeeping, grocery shopping, laundry and helping to take care of the family pet(s), including the exotic ones! I love love love family game nights! I am currently looking for a fun, exciting, welcoming family who loves to have a blast while taking care of business, and who hasn't lost the big kid inside us all!
