Hailey B. - Seeking Work in Indianapolis

22.85 / hour
Full-time hours

Hi, my name is Hailey. I am looking for a full-time or part time LONG TERM family, to help me further my career and reach my goals as a nanny. I am currently studying for my INA certification (International nanny). I absolutely adore children, I am a very take charge person, I get things done very efficiently. I love outings with the children, such as park, museum, zoo, library, etc. I am a nanny, not a babysitter this is my career and I take it very seriously. I love kids and plan to in some way work with them my entire working career. Below I have included my familes mission statement tobetter hel you understand what we are all about. 1. Live simply. We won’t commit to things that will fill our schedule to the point of insane business with little result. We will not go into debt other then for schooling purposes. Christmas time is spent more on creating things together and spending time with loved ones, than it is in buying things and dealing with crowds. I've decided that a perfectly clean house just isn’t going to make the cut, so I clean what’s needed, and don’t worry about the rest. We stick to our little mantra in our home, “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.” 2. Grow. We value the way God has made each of us individually, and we encourage personal and communal growth. It seems like our 5-year-old son Lucas is artistic and right-brained, so we want to foster the space for him to create and explore his interests. If Ben is athletic and shows interest in sports, we’ll provide a reasonable way for him to pursue that – but if he’s not, we won’t force him to be someone he’s not. We’ll encourage him in his weaknesses, of course, and give him a safe place to develop his areas of growth. Addy our baby we will answer to every call of hers until she is old enough to self sooth, we will do everything in our power to make sure she is a happy healthy baby! We WILL NOT give her any medicine/Vaccine we do not feel safe with...if it comes to it we will home-school. We will work daily on activities to expand and educate ALL of our children, we will not allow the TV to be a babysitter. No matter the dirty looks we get we will discipline when and wherever needed. We believe you have 18 years to teach a child to be an adult, not 18 years to be a kid. We’ll all do our best to allow us each to flourish in how we’re made. This also means we choose selectively how we spend our free time. Because it’s important to me that we create... I purposely schedule in time to scrapbook, or cook, or decorate, or whatever. It also means I invest time and resources into making our surroundings beautiful, because being surrounded by beautiful things high value of mine. Leary is an introvert, so we do our best to give him time to be alone. He also loves the outdoors, so if given a choice to do something outside or in, we’ll try to do it out. 3. Honor relationships. People are more important than things. We choose to value friends, family, neighbors, strangers, and enemies more highly than our personal possessions, our right to comfort, or a false sense of security. If a friend needs a place to crash for the night, we will welcome him to our office/guest room, even if our place is a wreck. I’ll have to swallow my pride, but that is better than turning away a soul needing a haven. We’ll schedule time for me to have a lunch date with a friend, because that friend is important. Even if it means not getting anything done that afternoon. 4. Celebrate. As a family, we like to celebrate both the big AND little things. We enjoy decorating for the seasons and holidays. We like fostering traditions, and spending time with extended family. For us, it’s fun to celebrate a birthday in our family for the entire weekend. And little things are cause for celebration, too. Being newly potty trained deserves a fun dessert after dinner. Finishing a tough project at work might mean a late-night movie and popcorn. We’ve chosen to make celebrating a priority, so we don’t feel guilty about spending valuable time doing these things. Please e-mail me with any questions or concerns.

I started watching children when I was 12 after I had taken Safe Sitter. I babysat throughout high school and have always helped take care of children in my extended family. My first job as a nanny was for a single mother who has 3 girls ages 4mo, 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 when I started and she also had joint custody of her two older children that were 8 and 9 at the time. I was a live in nanny and took care of the baby around the clock. I was responsible for waking up the children, getting them ready for the day, preparing meals, cleaning, doing activities with the children including educational ones and taking them on outings regularly. When I started all three of the younger children were in diapers, I potty trained the older two while I was with the family. I also tutored the older two since they were in school at that point. The eldest has diabetes, and I would monitor her blood sugar and administer her insulin as well. The 2 1/2 year old has asthma and needed breathing treatments three times a day. Another family I worked with has 2 children ages 4 and 7 when I started. I was also a personal assistant for the mother who is a physician. The 4 year old had leukemia and their grandmother has breast cancer so I would take them both to their appointments for treatment, labs and any procedures that were to be performed. I administered medicine and injections among other treatments at home for the 4 year old. The 7 year old simply needed my attention, I spent "girl" time with her so she wouldn't feel left out. I would regularly spend one on one time with her so that she would know that even though because her brother is sick, she is still important and special. We would do all kinds of activities including art, writing, reading and going to the Zoo and the Children's Museum. I also tutored her after school. I have experience with multiples and premature infants as well.

I have been caring for children for over 13 years now. I absolutely love it! A little about myself, I babysat for two families when I first graduated high school for two summers, and those 2 families had 2 children each. I then went on to college and obtained a recreation degree from Marian College. Throughout those four years, I worked at a child care center as a floater. I worked in every room and they ranged from infants to 12 years of age. I also frequently babysat for many of those families on the weekends. I then moved to Ohio for about two years and was a lead school age teacher at the child development center. I also volunteered and helped out with youth sports. I soon moved back to Avon and became a pre-k teacher before being promoted after only 4 months to the assistant manager position. In that position, I was in charge of the ones and twos programs. I then moved on to a new phase and became a nanny for 2 separate families full-time and worked for them for 5 years and it was the greatest move I ever made. I have chosen being a nanny as my career not a job! I bring a high energy, fun loving attitude to work each day and I am extremely dependable and flexible. I currently work for another family that has just one infant and he is the sweetest thing. I am comfortable with all ages and multiple children at once. I enjoy taking children to fun activities, the park, the zoo, museum and etc., or whatever else the parents would like their children to be involved in. Reading and crafts are a must and playing outdoors and swimming are also things I enjoy to do with the children. I hope to be the one your family is looking for. Have a great day!
