Amber R. - Seeking Work in Wayne

Full-time hours

I have been babysitting for family and friends for many years. I have also worked professionally for two families, in the last 2.5 years. I started with my first family in April 2015 and finished up in June 2017. They had four children - ages 3, 7 (has ADHD, ADD, Autism & extreme hyperactivity), 12 & 17. I provided transportation as well, to/from school, doctor appointments, and friend's houses. I also carpooled their daughter and her friends to cheer practice. During my two years with them, I have grown very close to the children. Due to some unsolved differences with the parents, despite being loyal to them, I decided it was best that I would quit and find a new family to become a part of. I started working with my second family in September 2016 and finished up in June 2017. They had two children - ages 9 months & 13. The mother worked part-time for a school district. Originally, I was going to have the summer off and come back to work next school year. However, the mother decided it was best for them if she stayed home, so I'm no longer needed.

I have 7 younger siblings ages ranging from 2 years to 16 years old. I have been babysitting my siblings for 6 years and have babysat 5 at a time. I love playing games with kids like duck duck goose or simon says. I would much prefer a game like that than sitting a child in front of a TV and calling it a day. Of course with older kids duck duck goose isn't a game of preference, I enjoy board games as well. I'm not a big fan of video games, I've always found board games to be more entertaining.

Hello! My name is Amber, I am 19 years old. I am currently working full time as a QC in a factory, but am looking to find a new job ASAP! I am attending college, majoring in Child Care & Development. I am looking for a job, where it allows me to continue with my studies, as well as gain more experience with children. I have experience with every age group. I have 3 younger sisters, ages 13, 9 and 18 months. I worked for two different families. One was when I was 13, for a family at my church. During the summers, from 9th grade to when I was a senior, I worked for a family friend. I've always helped my mom take care of my sisters, especially the newest baby. I look forward from hearing back from you and hope I can become apart of your family!
