Rachel F. - Seeking Work in Westland

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

For the past 10+ years or so, I have babysat neighborhood children and my two youngest cousins on countless occasions. I also have two nephews (under the age of 2), whom I take care of all of the time. I have watched over my cousins since both of them were born. I have been involved in many activities with the two of them, including reading, writing, coloring, swimming, going to the beach, and so on. I really enjoy having them around and being a part of their "fun" for the day! Nannying and babysitting has given me a tremendous amount of confidence in taking care of kids of all ages! I am also very confident that I could handle just about any situation that is thrown my way. I currently work for a family with a 2 year old, a 4.5 year old and a yellow lab. I have taken care of their every need for the past 5 years. I have no issues with this family at all and I absolutely adore them, but I am just looking for a more steady work schedule. I would really love to get my degree in nursing, but with my current work schedule, it proves to be quite difficult for me. I plan to take all night classes, so I would be available anytime between 8am-5/6pm, Monday through Friday. I hope to hear from some great families soon! :)

My childcare experience began when i was about 12 years of age. My parents had me young so i was the one taking care of my friends and families children all of my life. I have watched children anywhere from birth to high school age and absolutely love it. I now watch my sister who is 9 years of age; i am sort of mom #2 to her. I am always willing to babysit at any point in time and i believe it would be wonderful for me to be able to do this type of work on a regular basis. I also have a daughter of my own now who is 17 months and loves to around others kids and people. I am hoping a family will pick me up and bring us both in to let me help a family in need of a caregiver for their children.

I currently work at a child development center in Canton, and I greatly enjoy my job. I am a teacher with the older toddlers, ages 2-2.5. Because I work in such a large center we are occasionally placed in other rooms on certain days therefore I have also worked with infants, as well as older children up to 4 years old. I absolutely love working with children, something I have been doing since I was 12 years old when I started babysitting for neighbors. In addition, I was a member of an after school tutoring program at local elementary schools in Toledo while I was in college. I also volunteered as a mentor for at risk youth with a church program in Detroit called S.A.Y Yes during my summer breaks. In the near future, I would like to earn a teaching certification.
