Melissa H. - Seeking Work in Indianapolis

7.97 / hour

am a full-time mommy and have been a nanny for eight years working with wonderful families and children. I stay at home with my 4-year-old son and 5-month-old daughter. I am looking for a family that needs care one to two days per week in my home. Ideally, I would love to find another child to care for who is close to my son's age so they could become great friends! I live in a child friendly home and have plenty of room if your child still naps (mine does!). We love playing outside, going on walks, painting, going to the park, and the library. I live in Meridian Kessler. I have excellent references and a detailed resume I can e-mail. I graduated with honors with a Bachelor's in Graphic Design and Creative Writing. I am an avid reader and lover of all the arts (design, dance, architecture, painting, and photography). I love spending time with my husband and children in my free time! I have experience caring for children ages 0-13 with almost all of my experience being with infants and preschool aged children. I have worked for over 6 families in various capacities ranging from full-time care, part-time care, summer care, overnight/extended care to the occasional evening. I don't believe that there is any one way to care for a child. I believe that every child has their own personality, wants, and needs. I am a hands on nanny. I enjoy playing outside and doing art projects. I like taking children to museums, parks, zoo, and play dates. Every child deserves to be loved, respected, and kept safe. I believe that every child should be encouraged to explore and ask questions concerning anything that interests them. Every child should be treated and thought of as one of the most interesting human beings you might ever meet. I am a creative, open-minded, free-spirited individual, and I view the opportunity to care for your child as an exciting opportunity to help shape, educate and motivate them to become a wonderful person.

Hello, potential employers. You are upscale, devoted parents fed up with lazy, disorganized, immature babysitters who work cheap but cost a fortune in stress and hassle. You recognize that you get what you pay for, and are able to provide fair salary and benefits required to employ exceptional full-time child care. Imagine the security that comes from knowing your children are being cared for by a reliable, devoted professional with over 25 years experience. My sense of humor and easygoing personality will fit right in with your family's dynamic. From newborns to teens, there are very few situations I've not encountered. I've truly seen it all! You'll find yourself relying on my organizational skills, gentle disciplinary style and fun-loving nature. Do you have young children? Visits to the zoo, Children's Museum and parks will become part of our active days. Older kids will benefit from my help in establishing good homework and chore routines (laundry, dishes, etc.) to help stay on track. No matter what age, I'll be "your voice" when you're away from home, providing consistent, integrated guidance in accordance with your parenting methods. I am a graduate of Ball State University with a BA in Journalism. My hobbies include cooking & baking, music, reading and spending time with my family. There will be no issues with driving record, fingerprinting, or criminal history. I have a reliable vehicle, and will re-instate my CPR certification ASAP upon hiring.

I absolutely adore children. I have interacted with children in many ways. During summers while in college I was a nanny in Jackson Hole, WY for four children ages 1,3,5 & 7, so I have much experience with having a bundle of kids in different age ranges with me. I also nannied for two boys (ages 2 and 4 when I began) for a couple of years in Los Angeles. Recently, I have been working on the child side of a mental health organization- working with elementary kids in a school setting and now working with older youth in foster care. I have done quite a bit of babysitting and have also participated in group activities with children. I worked with the daycare and youth in my church for many years and I have also done student ambassadors which involves interacting with elementary classes. I have also been a mentor.

Since I was in elementary school and my mom brought home our new baby sister, i've been careing for children. I've loved them too! My mom had 2 more after her. I've changed diapers, made bottles, played with children and have also learned how to properly discipline them. Along the years, i've cared for cousins, nieces, nephews, and children of family friends. Over 10 years now, and my love for children have not faded! Through all the reading, singing, dancing, puzzles, cooking, cleaning, coloring, tickling, NAPS and educational tv, not only do I know what the children love, but I know what they NEED as well. Let me show you by being the #1 babysitter on your list. Hopefully the ONLY 1! Actions speak louder than words...

Coming from a big family someone always needed a babysitter, and I was always happy to volunteer. Being one of the oldest grandchildren (out of 22) I have always had a love for children. Since I could remember I wanted to make an impact on children's lives. I knew I wanted to one day become a teacher. On my journey of becoming a teacher I have had the chance to work with children who will hold a place in my heart forever. In 2005, I was fortunate enough to gain the position of nanny for the family. The two boys, Sam (at the time 4 years old) and George (at the time 2 years old) had many great adventures throughout our time together. I was then employed in the preschool. I worked there for 4 years . I loved working there, getting to explore with 2-5 year olds every day. I unfortunately had to leave because a family member of mine needed help. I moved to Indianapolis, IN with my Aunt Margaret and her 3 Children (Jonathan-2, Grace-4, and Lauren-9). My aunt lost her husband suddenly in late March 2009. As soon as I found out I knew I had to be here to help her through the rough times ahead. I left Jacksonville to be in Indianapolis with my family. I watched Jonathan and Lauren from 7:00 to about 5:00 when my aunt returned from work. I made dinner, gave baths, and cleaned up. Though my aunt is home I don't stop helping I was always available for her from taking Lauren to basketball practice to picking Grace up from school, going grocery shopping and so on.I returned to Jacksonville at the beginning of August. I am up to date with my CPR certification. I have passed the 40 hour classes DCF mandates for working in Early Childhood. I am also certified to teach art K-12 in Florida
