Stefani S. - Seeking Work in Westfield

12.43 / hour

I have assisted my sisters, in many nannying trips and occasions, who are both nannies as well. One sister is a live-in and the other is a live-out. I also have a niece who is three years old who I spend a lot of time with and a one year old nephew who I've babysat a lot as well. When I was 14 years old I assisted my sister in a three week nannying job with two 8-10 year old boys. We traveled all throughout Europe starting in England, then France, Switzerland, as well as Germany for a woman who is a professor for MIT. I frequently assisted my sisters in trips to theme parks, zoos, and water parks too. We grew very close to one family in particular, although all experiences were rewarding. I'm very experienced with story-telling before bed and finding child-appropriate songs to sing, and board games during leisure hours.

I'm a 21 year old Keene State psychology major looking for a great family to work with this summer. Most of my experience is with children ages 1-7. I've taken Child Development classes, where I worked in a local preschool, and developed lesson plans. My most recent family I worked with in Keene had a 6 year old girl who loved painting,reading, and going to the park. I also work with a family in Western Mass who have a 4 year old boy, and 2 year old girl. I typically plan art and craft projects ahead of time to bring over, and take the kids for walks and bike rides in the neighborhood. I'm calm, but enthusiastic, love planning fun and educational activities, and planning day trips.

I worked at a daycare when I was 16 for only a few months. I enjoyed the activities we would play after the students got out of school, such as capture the flag, soccer, and the monkey bars. Soon after I left the daycare, I started to baby sit for family of 2. Soon, the family grew to 3, and I would baby sit for them when the infant was still fairly small. The family knew I was attending college out of state, but would ask me to call them when home for the weekend because the kids loved when I watched them.
