Elise D. - Seeking Work in Dubuque

Hourly rate8.12 / hour

I have been an experienced caregiver for children for 7 years. I began as a babysitter when I was 13 years old and became a part-time nanny when I was 16. During these years I cared for all ages of children; newborn-10 years of age. I have taken care of numbers of children ranging from one child or infant at a time up to five children at a time (two infants and 3 children). I have a very positive outlook on caregiving and I have the ability to work out struggles in a given situation. While some would say two infants and three children is a bit of a handful, I look to it as a positive experience which enhances my ability to take care of children. I am certified in Adult, Child and Infant CPR as well as have had completed the VIRTUS Training on Protecting Children and proper nutrition courses. Outside of the classroom environment and into the home environment with childcare I have done many things. I have carpooled children to activities. Before bedtime often parents ask to give the young children and infants a bath before putting them to bed. I also do a fair amount of cooking and preparing meals as well as laundry and household cleaning. I fully believe that helping children is what I was born to do. Helping children is in my blood. I learned from a great role model how to be a positive teacher and mentor for children; my mother has taught me many valuable lessons and I hope to share those lessons with every child that I have the pleasure of meeting and helping in all instances. My passion for children started at a young age. I have grown up with two younger siblings and many cousins. I enjoy being in the company of children as they possess zeal about life that makes me smile. Smiles are truly contagious.

Hourly rate20.00 / hour

I was a nanny for a family of three young boys for the past 3 summers. The age range was from three to seven. We loved to be outside. We went for bike rides, fishing, to the pool, and for walks. The boys and I would go to a local museum to explore the Mississippi River. We played board games, went on adventures throughout the neighborhood and played with their dogs. I was there from 7am to 5 or 5:30pm and on occasions was their until 9pm. I made the boys breakfast, lunch and a snack everyday. I cleaned up after meals and occasionally did laundry.
