Brittnee L. - Seeking Work in Wheaton

Hourly rate22.85 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

First and most importantly, I am the oldest of five children and have gained much of my childcare experience from being a big sister. Because my mom was a single mom for the greater portion of my life, I took on many of the every day responsibilities to help her. I also would babysit my cousins and other children in the neighborhood during high school. While in college, many professors would ask me to watch their kids and grandkids while they were teaching, as long as I were not in class, and on the weekends as well. I love kids and have always enjoyed being a babysitter. I am CPR certified and have also took a Safe Sitter babysitting course. I have been blessed to learn the skills that it takes to be wonderful nanny through my family, family friends and professors from my university who have allowed me to take responsibility for their children.

Childcare has been a part of my life since I was a child myself. When I was 9 years old, I began babysitting for family friends. These experiences created a desire in me to continue to work with children. I had my first regular baby-sitting job, for a family with three young daughters, at age 13. I babysat often throughout high school, though usually not regularly. When I was in college at Northern Illinois University, I worked for the Campus Childcare Center (January-December, 2007). In 2009, I received a degree in Elementary Education from Northern Illinois University. For me, this degree has mostly translated into tutoring and baby-sitting jobs post graduation. Since 2009, I have tutored students in kindergarten through 9th grade. I also teach middle school and high school students one day a week for Heritage Home School Workshops, a homeschool co-op in Elgin, IL. Since graduation, I have had several evening/weekend/overnight baby-sitting jobs. Family size and ages vary in each of these situations. During the fall of 2010, I baby-sat one day a week for a family with two sets of twins 11 months apart, children I continue to babysit periodically. In the spring of 2011, I became a nanny three days a week for an infant boy, which is the position I hold at this time. In addition to paid positions, I also have experience with childcare through my church, where I have been a leader at Vacation Bible School each summer since 2005. I have also taught Sunday school to preschoolers since August 2008.

I have worked with all different types of kids. I have two younger siblings. Which was always a challenge because I was always the chosen one to babysit when my parents wanted to go out on the town. I volunteered at a elementary school for two years throughout college. I would play on the playground and help teaching in the classroom. I also was a Teachers Aide in the Special Education Dept. I would also part time nanny while I went to Augustana College. I am very loving and caring. I also am very active. I was a day camp coach for a boys/girls summer soccer camp.
