Bernice M. - Seeking Work in Sandy Springs

Hourly rate17.14 / hour

I have been a nanny for a few families and have loved it. I have always loved children and known that I wanted to be a mother. My daughter was an unplanned surprise but has brought me the most joy of anything in the world.I was a nanny for the Turner family's son which I was with from the time he was 2 weeks until he was 9 months. I ended up leaving that family because of financial issues on my part, and I was needing more work. The next family I became a nanny for was the Peter family. I watched their daughter Leah for almost 2 years, from the time she was 6 months until recently when the family moved to Ohio. Both families and children remain close friends. I have also provided long term child care for many families. The family; I watched their son from the time he was almost a year until he was over 3 years old. While I was working with them they adopted a newborn little girl whom I watched for a few months. I have and still work with the family whenever they need extra childcare for their 3 year old son Davis. I have also provided childcare at my old church in the nursery on Sundays, I taught Sunday school for the 3-5 year old group, and provided childcare for the 'mommy mornings' they had. I know how difficult it can be to find quality childcare for your child. My philosophy when I become a nanny for a family is I want to become a part of that family. I want to come into your home and uphold the rules and expectations of that home. I try to make it as seamless of a transition as possible. I am looking to be a nanny again because it would be a great fit for my family right now. I would love to have a job that I love and that I could also bring my daughter along.

I have been a babysitter for over ten years, starting in high school as many people do for a little extra cash. However, over the years as I have grown into an adult I have learned how much I love kids and have not only committed my life to taking care of children (as an inspiring pediatric nurse) but I very much love being a small part of families and helping them better navigate through the hectic days many of us have while trying to balance family and work life.
