Madrina M. - Seeking Work in Savannah

Hourly rate7.46 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I have been a professional nanny/mother's helper/household manager/personal assistant for over 18 years. I have cared for mothers prior to giving birth, infants from birth to 16 years old and all ages in between. The last two positions I had were a lovely little angel girl age 8 months and twin 4-year-old boys. I have a Bachelors and an Associates Degrees in Early Childhood Education with a minor in Art Education graduated with high honors and I was on academic scholarship. I had thought I wanted to become a teacher, however after the beautiful experiences I had throughout college in nanny positions I knew in my heart that nanny work was my true calling. I truly love what I do. I love helping families in giving them the security in knowing their children are in the absolutely superior care possible. I am also a mother myself, so I understand how important it is to have someone you know 150% is caring for your child/ children as if they would their own. I am CPR & First Aid Certified in child and infant with certification certificates that I bring with my letters of reference when we meet to see if I am the ideal Nanny for your family. I have worked for 6 long term positions and many "on-call" positions over the past 18 years. I have letters of references from each family I have been so very blessed to be a part of over the years. The last 4 were military families and they were relocated. I am hoping for a long term position as over the years and my experience I find that a long term arrangement works best for the parent and children thrive in a stable regular nanny. I am very artistic and I love to do art projects. I bring age appropriate "bag of art fun" (which I tailor to the age of the child) books, crafts, learning activities and many things to enrich your child/children's days. I also love the outdoors (playgrounds, nature walks and etc.). I love the water too and have taught many children I've cared for, including my own two sons, how to swim. I love to go to the story time readings that the library has. Our city has so many wonderful places for outings and even has children DIY workshops on Saturdays that are totally free and the children get to make amazing little projects such as birdhouse. I love to utilize these wonderful places for the children I'm blessed to care for that are old enough to enjoy such activities.

I started babysitting at age 11 and was a mother's helper before that. The first child I babysat for followed a strict medication schedule. There are several families I have babysat for, taking care of their children until they didn’t need a babysitter anymore. I nannied for a wonderful family in Boston with a 3 year old and an 8 year old. In Illinois, I nannied for an infant for the better part of the year, until I moved away. Upon returning to Illinois, I worked at a daycare in an infant room for three years. Then, I held a nanny position with twin 8 year old boys and an 11 year old girl until they moved to France on sabbatical. I am an incredibly confident, fun-loving, and competent care taker and hope to share my experience with other wonderful children.
Molly S. - Seeking Work in Savannah

Hourly rate8.57 / hour

I am 24 (almost 25) years old, and I grew up in Savannah, Georgia. I graduated from high school in 2008, and have 4+ years of college under my belt. I began babysitting children in my neighborhood at the age of 10, and it quickly became a love of mine. I am currently a full time photographer, but will be moving to Eugene, OR in early August for my husband to attend U of O, and will lose my photography client base - so back to nannying it is! I started my very first nanny job at the age of 16, while I was still in high school. I continued with that job for several years during high school, and then after I graduated, I became a counselor at a overnight camp in North Carolina. I ended up working with fifteen 4 year old - 6 year old campers for the entire summer before I started college. During college, I nannied for two different families part time, and then one family (with 4 children, ages 3-14) full time for the last three years. I have experience with infants/newborns, toddlers, elementary age, and middle school. This year, I coordinated a tutoring program for children, and have several years experience in tutoring/helping with homework. I am trained in first aid and CPR, but will need to renew my certification, as I have not taken the class in several years. I am also a strong swimmer, and have had countless years of swimming lessons. I am comfortable with working with special needs children, and children with learning differences.

Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I was always requested by friends and family to babysit. I use to watch 3 young boys on a regular bases, ages 4,2, newborn. I loved it. I started babysitting very young. Just something that came naturally. I am the oldest sibling in my family and through my parents divorce and even after my father got full custody i found my self taking care of my little brother and sister. Therefore i had to kinda grow up fast. Taking on big responsibilities and looking after my siblings was hard at times but paid off in the end. We all have such an incredible bond and it helped me become more adaptable to any situations and prepare for the future when i want to create my own family someday.
