Amanda B. - Seeking Work in Charlotte

20.00 / hour

I am a nurturing, caring and professional nanny with a Bachelors degree in Fine Art. I love spending time with children and strive to ensure their safety, well being, and development at all times. My former employers say that my best qualities are being nurturing and dependable. In my previous jobs I have organized my day using the principles of play-based learning and plenty of story-time for language development. My childcare philosophy includes teaching happiness through self-sufficiency and manners. I earned a Bachelor's degree in Art. While attending college I taught at a preschool working in the 2-year-old class. Upon graduation, I worked as a nanny for a wonderful family caring for two boys, ages 4 years old and 5 years old. The following two years I provided full-time child care for a terrific little boy, age 2 years old, who headed off to full-time preschool. For the past two and a half years I have been a nanny for an amazing family with two little boys age 2 years old and 4 years old. Recently I have also become a mother to a happy baby boy who is now 13 months old. I have had the joy of bringing my son to work with me for the past 10 months and would love the opportunity to continue to do so. I am responsible, thoughtful, dependable and organized. I am looking for a family in need of childcare that will allow me to bring my son to work with me. He is a happy healthy 13-month-old boy who is a great playmate. I have my own transportation and I am willing to consider part time or full time positions. I love animals of all kinds, so pets are not a problem. I have an open schedule and am available to start immediately. I look forward to hearing from you and getting to know your family.
Susan C. - Seeking Work in Charlotte

Hi, my name is Susan and I live in Charlotte N.C. My husband and I moved here 35 years ago via company transfer < he's from Long Island and I am from Greensboro N.C.> I have been nannying for a family in Cramer Mountain NC for the last nine years. Twin boys from the time they were a year old, as well as their older brother. The family is moving after school is out and although my husband seriously considered miving with them, it just doesn't work out. Our daughter is miving back to the state this year as well as we have a two year old grandaughter. I knew this day might come but was not looking forward to it. I am a twin myself and understand so much what goes on with them and why they are special. I would come with glowing references from my "nanny family " and they would be willing to talk with you personally . I have had to take one sick day in 9 years and have onky been late twice. I operated an in -home day care when our children were young for 12 years which I gave up when my last day-care "baby" began first grade and no longer needed me but my second grade son did. Some of my "children" still keep in touch , bringing their own children to visit and one even called me a few years ago asking if I would care for her little girl.I enjoy children tremendously, am very entertaining <theater background> I am consistant and I am kind. With older children, I can think of nothing more rewarding than teaching them art, theater or cooking...three of my biggest hobbies. I then volunteered in the school system ( Fort Mill ), working there as a substitute teacher for several years, became a girl scout leader for my daughter's troup, a den mother for my son's, and my husband and I were band parents . After our daughter left for Clemson and our son was more self reliant, I was able to happily turn my part time mural painting business into full time for the next eight years. During that time. our Godson Brian was born and I have been blessed with being able to help with his care off and on until he started kindergarden. When the economy started taking a dip and my business was slowing down, I was able to turn my love of art and working with children into teaching for three years, ages 5-11 in the school system again. I have had a background check. Of course I have many references , personal, business and from our priest who has known me for 30 plus years. I also direct theater on a professional level in my spare time a couple of evenings a week during a show, oftentimes working with large casts of children. We have such a good time! I am very organized, I deal with children extremely well and enjoy them tremendously. My own two children are grown and it looks like our daughter <middle school vice principal ) and her husband < attorney> have decided to concentrate more on their careers.

Full-time hours

Hi, my name is Jennifer and I am the mother of two wonderful children, a daughter who is 28 and a son who is 23, both of my children are grown and married now. I was a stay at home mom for 20 plus years. When I decided to return to the work force I decided to pursue a career in the field where my heart is most passionate and that for me is caring for children. In my most recent position, I care for a 19-month-old baby boy. I have been taking care of him since he was 12 weeks old. The first year of life is so important and ever changing. I spent my days holding him, feeding him and letting him know he is safe and loved, now we play all day! The family I was with previously have two boys, an 18-month-old and a 5-year-old. I was with the baby all day and the oldest child after preschool. My day entailed caring for the children, naps, and playtime in the afternoons. The family I worked for prior to this family have three boys ages two and a half, five, and 7 years old. The oldest two are in school so I spent most of my days with the "little one." He and I stayed very busy playing with his cars, blocks, and reading. I have a lot of energy. I love to play and interact with the children I have the privilege of caring for. The position I had before this one was working as a full-time nanny for a family with a 4-year-old boy; I was also a personal assistant to the mom and family. In this position my day entailed the care of their child and then during the time he was in preschool I managed their home. I ran errands, did their child's laundry, went to the cleaners, took care of their pets, meal prep as needed, and basically performed any services that would be helpful to them enabling them to have more quality time as a family at the end of the day! I have also been a Nanny for a family with a 6 and 11-year-old. I think the best quality I have to bring as a nanny is a mother's heart of love, and also the wisdom and knowledge I have from being the mother of two grown children. I am a very organized, neat and clean person. I know what it takes to run a house. I can see what needs to be done and will make sure it gets done. I have very reliable transportation. I own a 2011 Honda Accord. I am CPR and First Aid certified. I am comfortable caring for a child of any age, newborn through teens. If you feel like I am the kind of person you hoped to find, I look forward to meeting you and talking to you further about your family. Blessings to you, Jenny

I am a mother of 5 grown children (whom I home schooled through senior year), and a nanny with 7 years experience. I have been taking care of children for my entire adult life and it continues to give me a great sense of satisfaction. It is important work raising the next generation and I am thankful to have a part in it. I love juggling schedules, establishing boundaries, teaching kids life principles, and cooking. For my first 4 years as a nanny, I cared for a family with 4 children. At first, there were 2 girls, one 4 years and the other, 18 months. Among my duties were dropping off and picking up from preschool, serving lunch, transporting the 4-year-old to after-school activities, serving dinner, giving them baths, and tucking them into bed. We often went to the park, Discovery Place, or in the summer we went to the pool. About 1 year later another girl was born and I cared for her as well. In addition I was responsible for the family's laundry and running daily errands for the mother. About 4 months before I moved on, a son was born. For the following 2 years, I was personal assistant for a pediatrician and her husband, a family physician, and nanny to their twin 15-year-old sons. I gave them rides from school and sports everyday as well as taking them to all their other appointments, including hair cuts, book store, gym, etc. Every week the mom made a dinner menu and a shopping list. I shopped the ingredients in the afternoon and cooked the evening meal for them to eat at seven. I also did light housekeeping and all the family's laundry (wash dry, hang, fold, and put away.) As seniors in high school and approaching 18, the twins no longer needed a nanny. Currently, I am a nanny for a family with 2 girls, ages 11 and 10, and a boy of 5. Two of the children are special needs kids. In the course of a day, I pick them up from schools and bus stops, drive them to after-school activities, and direct them in their homework. I make the dinner menu and a shopping list, shop, and prepare dinner. I also try to keep the laundry on schedule. I give most of my time to the 10-year-old, who only has a half day of school. We spend time learning to cook, going to the park, playing with the dogs, and sometimes just hanging out. She spends a lot a time at the gym so we enjoy car rides together. Sadly this family is facing a financial change and can no longer afford a full time nanny.

My name is Cassidy and I would love to be a part of your family! I am 21 years old and have 4 years experience working with children from newborns to teens. My love for children sparked when I started volunteering with the special needs cheerleading team at Charlotte Allstars. It was then that I knew my future was in childcare. It lit a fire inside me and took off from there! There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a child take their first steps, accomplish a goal, develop new knowledge right before your eyes, and knowing that you had a part in it. I'm very kind, a bit soft spoken at first, and patient. But I am also energetic, playful, and love to laugh. I love to sing to, dance around with, read to, play games, play outside, be active, engage and encourage learning with the kids. I really believe in hands on learning and learning through experience. I would much rather take kids to an interactive museum, an aquarium, or a park than to stay at home all day. I'm also really big on arts and crafts! I don't shy away from hard work. I enjoy doing anything I can to be helpful! Whether that be running errands, doing laundry, or just tidying up. I've always enjoyed a clean, and organized, work space and I always intend to leave it better than I found it! I am currently in search, at this point in my career, of a new family to love long term. Although nannying is my job, I treat the children as if they were my children. I enjoy building relationships and growing with families I work for and sticking around for as long as they'll have me. My ideal job is full time, busy, long term, and reliable. I am educated, dedicated, and passionate about my career. I am certified in CPR and first aid and always looking to expand my knowledge and stay up to date on current safety practices. I have a clean driving record. I strive to be punctual at all times. I am also great at keeping or establishing a routine. I know all families are different and I am great at adapting to all styles of parenting so that we can work as a team to give your children a consistent and positive upbringing. I will do my best to always keep your little ones stimulated, happy, and constantly learning and growing in every part of themselves. I come to work everyday with a smile on my face! I truly love what I do and wouldn't trade it for anything.

I kept parents informed on the progress of their child and any educational and behavioral issues I encountered. Parents and I partnered as a team to help meet the needs of their child. On weekends and after-hours I offer babysitting services for any family in need. I babysit for children whose parents work late hours and/or weekends, go out for date nights, run errands, and for parents who just need a break. I keep the children I care for entertained by taking them to exciting places and by planning fun activities to do around the house. For children I care for on evenings I assist with homework, preparing dinner, bathing children and preparing them for bed. I also have assisted families with drop-off and pick-up to and from school and also with transportation and supervision of children’s extra-curricular activities. I have a total of 10 years of experience working with children of all ages. I believe working with children is my purpose in life. I plan to make a wonderful and rewarding career out of working with children.
