Jennifer G. - Seeking Work in Bloomington

14.28 / hour

I have 10 years of childcare experience, ranging in ages 4 months – 13 years old. I love playing with children in a safe and enriching manner and am happy to do light housekeeping and meal preparation tasks as well. I am a recent college graduate from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; I graduated Summa Cum Laude and will be attending medical school in August to pursue a career as a pediatrician. With 10 years of experience working with kids of all ages, I have learned how to promote children’s confidence and build on their unique assets, as well as foster environments that allow children to appreciate each other’s similarities and differences. In my experience working with children 4 months – 2 years old, I value working with families to understand the children’s routines, likes and dislikes, and goals for development and growth. I enjoy playing with children in an enriching environment both inside their homes and outside in the community, and ensure that the child’s safety is always the top priority. I have worked one-on-one and in large group settings with children ages 4 – 14 as a tutor, after-school program supervisor and leader, and a camp counselor and soccer director. In these roles, I have built children’s confidence in academics, planned and executed activities ranging from arts and crafts, community field trips, sports classes, and taught the fundamentals of soccer skills for children of all ability levels. As the after-school program supervisor, I was also directly responsible for training and overseeing 6-8 program leaders per semester. These roles were vital for gaining experience communicating with children and teens of differing abilities, cultures, and life experiences. As I am relocating to Washington, D.C. for the summer, I am seeking to continue working with children in a supportive environment that will foster their happiness and continual growth.

I was a nanny for 3+ years for a family of 3. The ages of the children when I started was almost 2, almost 3 and 5. We parted on good terms and I still keep in touch with them. My duties included everything a parent would do if they could be there. Play, teach, diaper and potty training, meal preparation, activities and crafts, baths, naps, etc. Since then I have worked for many families as a nanny, babysitter and mothers helper. I currently babysit for 4 different families in Bloomington. I have great references and a lot of experience.

I have experience babysitting for a pair of twin gymnasts whom I took back and forth to gymnastics and participated as needed during gymnastic functions in place of their mother. I also took them to the park quite frequently to play and hike the trails. I have cared for a young girl with cleft palate/lip and her older brother, took them back and forth to school, and cared for their Great Pyrenees puppy. Another family I babysat for had three girls and a little boy, these were typically over-nighters where I would cook dinner for them then watch tv with them until bed-time. Any other babysitting/care jobs were inconsistent and occasional! But I do have quite a bit of experience.
