Kerrin T. - Seeking Work in Waldorf

Hourly rate14.28 / hour

From August 2004 to June 2006, I served as a full-time nanny for a family with 2 young girls, ages 7 months and 3 years when I began. My start time was flexible: most days I began at 9 am but due to medical appointments and military obligations, I would report as early as 5:45 am. Most days I would leave after both parents were home for the night around 6 pm. Each day, I would wake the girls for preschool, bathe and dress them, feed them breakfast, and drive the older daughter to school. During the day, I would take care of the younger daughter and provide light housekeeping support for the family. Once the 3 y.o. was finished with half-day preschool, I would work with her and her sister in the afternoon on enrichment activities. We would also take daily/weekly trips to the park, playground, and other fun, engaging places. During that time, I also part-time nannied for 2 other families. One family had a newborn daughter and a 3 year old son. In this position, I cared for both children and provided light housekeeping support for the family. The other family had 2 boys, 5 and 7 y.o. The younger son was physically handicapped with a prosthetic leg. I would wake both boys for school, get them dressed and fed, and take them to the bus stop. I would provide light housekeeping duties for the family until one of the parents relieved me for the day.

I adore children! I have over 13 years of experience caring for, educating, and nurturing children. I began my career as an early childhood educator with children ages infant to preschool. I worked within the daycare environment for several years and then transitioned to being a 4-year-old preschool teacher. During my career I eventually transitioned to being an assistant director of a childcare center and then I was promoted to being the Director of a private school. I have always had a passion for the education, growth, and nurture of children. As a teacher I prioritized exploration limitless learning experiences. As a director I prioritized safety, quality staff, and parent partnerships. I am looking forward to providing excellent care for children in a home and private environment where I can offer them one-on-one care and attention.

I started babysitting at the age of 10 years old and started being a Nanny a few months after graduating High School. In high school I took a child development course and passed with flying colors. I have been a part time nanny for 3 different families for 3 years, about 6-8 months for each position. I have a lot of experience with infants and toddlers, ages 3 months to 4 years old, but I wouldn't mind working with older children. I do offer homework help, assisting with potty training, light cleaning, meal preparation, and light laundry. I also keep a daily journal for the parents of the child's daily activities, accidents, meals, diaper changes, etc. I do have a 2-year-old son that I would like to bring to my future position, of course no extra cost with him being there. I plan on getting CPR and First Aid certified again within the next month.

I have at least 10 years experience with children and love every minute of it! I have worked with infants as 6 weeks old to children as old as 12. In my previous jobs, I had a set schedule of days of the week to be at the home full time, but I was also available for nights and weekends on an on-call basis. In full time positions I was also resposible for household duties such as cooking, cleaning and running errands. I am also a certified nursing assistant.

I come from a rather large family. My first experiences with children started at a young age. I am the eldest of 15 grandchildren so I was always babysitting one of my cousins. I also have 8 brothers and sisters, 5 of which are younger than me. My first real experience in an organized childcare enviroment was when I worked at The Goddard School last January. I worked with the 2-3 year olds, the ratio was 6 kids to 1 teacher, it was the lead teacher and myself with 12 children. The experience was overall amazing. That was where I met the family I was just recently working for. Their daughter was in my classroom and her mother was looking for a nanny for her infant son and I ended up leaving the school to take care of the baby. Shortly after, her daughter left the school and I was taking care of her as well full time 5 days a week. Though it could be overwhelming at times, I wouldn't have changed a second of it. I absolutely fell in love with every child I have ever worked with. The experience is amazing.
