I am great with kids! I’ve been babysitting since I was 9 years old. The kids easily warm up to me and love to play with me because I make sure they have fun. I know how to follow task that the parents give me when it comes to their kids as well.

It is amazing how much children learn through constructive play and how they can teach themselves from just playing with something as simple as playdoo. I have also helped the children learn how to solve their problems and improve their social skills. I have taught gross motor games like baseball, basketball, four corners, and soccer. I have assisted in cooking activities, set up and taught art activities, setup dramatic play areas, taught the children gardening and woodworking. As a tutor, I help teach children the days of the week and months of the year, counting, and calendar time. I helped teach the children to read and write, to use phonics and to be able to write their names in cursive. We taught some basic math like odd and even numbers which lead to adding and subtracting. I also did art and science projects every week. And all throughout high school I babysat so I could have spending money. I am a warm, enthusiastic person who lives in the world of possibilities, and can become very passionate and excited about things. This enthusiasm lends me the ability to inspire and motivate others. I love life, and strive to make the most out of it. I have the amazing ability to intuitively perceive the truth about a person or situation, which is important when being a nanny/babysitter/tutor.

I have been babysitting since I was 12 years old. Between school years of '07 & '08 I worked at a 3 star registered day care in Nashville. At the day care, I worked in the "Bed Babies" room with infants six weeks to 14 months. Because of this experience, I consider infants & toddlers to be my specialty! I also babysat regularly for multiple families during that time with children ranging from newborn to 7 years. When I first moved to Atlanta I nannied for a newborn starting at 6 weeks, & then a 3 month old & two year old, then from May '13 until this past November I was nannying for a family starting when their baby was 3 months old! They just had a second baby & the mother decided to stay at home with the kids! Currently I'm working with a premie who's 3 months old until we move in April & she goes to daycare.

I am a mother of 2 children ages 3 and 8. I have been involved with children since high school. I have been a kindergarten teacher and a third grade teacher in Sunday School, an outdoor coordinator for the County after school program, and the director of a summer program at the Club Hotel. After having my first child I went to Valdosta State University and obtained a bachelors degree in Early Childhood. I spent time in grades from Pre-K through 5th grade. The majority of my time with Valdosta State University was spent teaching Kindergarten during my student teaching. Soon after my student teaching I gave birth to my second child. I then became a teacher of 20 Pre-K students for 1 year before I decided I wanted to spend more time at home with my daughter. I loved my job and I LOVED my kids (students) but I wanted to teach in a different kind of way. I am CPR and First Aid certified. I obtained a job as a Nanny through this site for a terrific family that moved to our town for a year and a half, but the kids are growing up and I was no longer needed. I then served as a substitute in the school system but realized how much I missed having a small group again. I am now looking for a new family. I am willing to relocate if needed.

Nearly all of my previous work experience has been with children. I have been working two jobs for a long time. I work as a child care provider at a local nursery in which I look after children from infancy to the age of four. Some of the tasks invovled include feeding, changing diapers, art activities, and teaching basic skills among others. My other job is at Kat's Happytime Preschool in which I am an after school teacher to children within the age range of four to ten. In my class, we focus on basic skills including Math, Reading, Handwriting, and socializing with others. I stay with the children during naps, take them to play, and help them with homework. My living situation also provides me with experience with children. I live with a family with two children; a two year old girl and a four year old boy.
