Ashley M. - Seeking Work in Boston

Hourly rate17.14 / hour

I love working with children. I have six younger cousins I've been babysitting since I was 13 years old. Over the years I have worked with wonderful families and have loved caring, teaching, and playing with children from infants to 16 years old. I have a passion for teaching and the ocean. For the past four years I have been an educator and naturalist. Currently I work in the Education Department at the New England Aquarium and am able to combine both of these passions while also inspiring children to love the ocean and care for our planet. At the aquarium one of my specialties is teaching a class for 2-3 year old ocean lovers called Sea Squirts. Being able to interact and see how much fun my students have learning about the ocean is one of my most rewarding aspects of my job. I am caring, intuitive, responsible, hard working, creative, loving, patient, and have a wonderful repport with children.

My older sister has an almost 3 year old daughter, since she was pregnant I was there for her support and when my niece was born that was the best day of my life and since that day I cared for her as if she was my own daughter, I have helped in the growth, education and development of her, she is 2 in a half now. I was working in London caring after 2 children,one which was 2 years old and the other 2 months, I was there for six months, which later I returned to mexico because I had to finish my studies to get my college degree, I maintained the cleanliness of the kids, I took them to the playground and when it was time to eat I cooked for them. I came to Boston last year where I was working in Brookline, MA. caring for a 5 month old child, Monday, Wednesday and Thursdays and sometimes on Saturdays if the parents wanted to have a night out. I cooked, cleaned, housecleaned, and ran errands for them. the family later moved to New York in late March early April. They can also be a great reference.
Laura J. - Seeking Work in Boston

Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I graduated from from college with a business degree. After working in management, I realized I needed to forego my career path and pursue my passion: children! I had experience as a lifeguard, camp counselor, babysitter, and swim coach, so it was an obvious choice for me. I became a full-time nanny for a family of 3 in Indianapolis, Indiana for a year before I moved to Denver, Colorado. In Denver, I joined a multi-family nanny share that I helped grow into many children. I have extensive experience with ages newborn - preteen. I am CPR certified and am happy to run errands and help out around the house as well.
