Rachel N. - Seeking Work in Manhattan

Hourly rate8.12 / hour

I began babysitting when I learned to change a diaper around the age of 11. In the summer of 2010 and 2011 I was a nanny Monday-Friday 8a.m.-6p.m. I watched two boys who were a handful most of the time but I enjoyed that experience. Around the same time frame I also was a nanny for a couple who had two girls ages 2 and 5, along with a 6 year old boy. This job I had for about 8 months and worked monday-friday from 3p.m.-8p.m. and occasionally on weekends as needed. Both girls were well behaved, and the boy was energetic. I love a challenge and keeping up with the children I nanny/babysit is always a goal of mine. The last family which I still currently babysit for when I am back in my home town began when I was only 12 and she was 4. At this time I was not getting paid and knew this family from down the street, she ended up loving me and now she is 11 years old and I still visit and babysit when I can, in many cases free of charge as we have grown so close in the many years I have spent watching her grow! I have loved every one of the children I have watched and am ready to take on any challenge.

I have been working/managing where I have also had the pleasure of teaching swim lessons! I have taught all ages, including a parent tot class. I also have had the honor of teaching a deaf & blind child, who taught me so much about perseverance and trying your hardest. From this I received employee of the month from the City of San Ramon, for going above and beyond my duties. I am certified in CPR (which includes child & infant CPR) , AED, First Aid, & Title 22. I also graduated high school with a bilingual diploma by the state of California. Which means I am fluent in American Sign Language. I have always worked with kids, and considered myself very child friendly! I have babysat since I was 12, from my sister to neighborhood kids, to other families. I have also worked for a child who had oppositional behavior disorder and understand how to work with kids that may be considered difficult.

Child care has been a part of my life ever since I was 14. I had many younger cousins that I would watch. I was a part time nanny in Leavenworth when I lived there during high school. I participated in camps that worked with elementary aged students for 4 years. Most children beg their parents to invite me back to babysit them and children love me. I love thinking of fun, new ideas to do with the children. Since coming to college, I have babysat for various couples and now I am looking for a more perminant part time job with scheduled hours. I truly enjoy looking after children of all ages and I hope that watching children and having experience with them will help me with my future career in family studies and human services.

I have a large family with many children. I have spent the majority of my teen years babysitting my neices and nephews (ages infant to 14), my cousins, friends' children, and more professional forms of babysitting. I am very close with one of my neices, and we spend several days a week together doing different activities. I also volunteer in my church nursery. Usually I am placed in the infant department, but I have been placed with all ages. In addition, I spent the last 6 months being a nanny for a 1 year old boy, and I love it!

I come from a family of 8 and have had lots of childcare experience over the years! I live in a small town and have babysat for several families all through high school and during the summers. My youngest siblings are twins and I took care of them growing up and helped my parents with my younger siblings: running errands, taking kids to extra curricular activities and helped with cooking and cleaning up after the kids.
