Jenny C. - Seeking Work in Topeka

Hourly rate17.14 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

My past childcare experience was great. I nannied 3 kids that were in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade. I was with them for two hours everyday after school. That time involved picking up from school, taking kids to practices, or staying with them at the house until a parent was home. During the summer I was there from 8 to 6 Monday through Friday. Throughout the summer I do my best to be involved with kids and keep them active. For example we'd often go to the pool or play games outside. I also enjoy taking kids to movies or having them participate in some sort of baking activity like making cookies or rice krispy treats. My main goal is to prevent kids from sitting in front of the television all day long! Overall, my past childcare experience was a great time!

I have worked for families with multiple children, including twins. I have also worked in daycare settings where I have cared for infants to the preschool age. Have also done personal babysitting for multiple families for over 20 years. Currently I am a toddler teacher in Maine getting ready to relocate to the Topeka area. I also babysit for families of the daycares, and still some past clients as well. I have loved caring for children since I was old enough to help my mom with my siblings, and still love it!

Jama H. - Seeking Work in Topeka

Hourly rate8.57 / hour

I got my first babysitting job when I was thirteen. Since then, I have been a constant favorite babysitter amongst my church congregation. Though I have minimal experience with infants (merely a couple of months), I am willing to work with them and I am willing to learn. My speciality is two-year-olds and above, however. This is the age group that I've always babysat. They're most enjoyable and I enjoy working with them!
Kacey H. - Seeking Work in Topeka

Hourly rate8.57 / hour

I have been babysitting informally for family and family friends since I was 11 years old and that's when I knew I had to go into childcare! I joined a nanny service while I was in college and did various babysitting jobs through them, and eventually found a job as a full time nanny for a 3 month old and a 3 year old with autism. I worked with the family for a year, providing childcare, building and implementing a daily schedule, preparing meals and doing light housework. I then took a job as the lead teacher of a one year old classroom at Christ the King Early Education Center. I provided care for 10 children aged 12 months to 2 years.
