My nanny experience is fairly broad. I first got the babysitter-bug when I helped in the infant room as a middle-school student. Then, there was watching my little sister when my parents were gone. In high school I branched out to babysitting my sister’s friends for a few dollars an hour. Once I graduated and moved to Fargo I realized how much I loved working with children. I hopped online and started setting up jobs with local families. Now, I have been a Nanny for more than ten children between the ages of 18M and 14yrs since 2011. I prefer working with multiple children. I like the challenge of keeping up with those little legs, I also find that when there are multiple children, kids have a tendency to get competitive. I believe this is good when working on games, crafts, and cleanup time. It helps kids to set a goal and reach it. Also, with more kids around they can play together. I can help them get started in a game or craft, then assist them when needed and use the time to get other work that needs to be done around the house finished. I also have experience working overnight. I would arrive at the house just as the kids were going to bed. Then I spend the rest of the night checking up on them and doing a bit of housework. I also play the role of chauffer often. Picking kids up from school, driving them to activities and getting everyone home on time is a large part of my nannying career. Part of working as an after-school nanny is setting up play-dates. I live for play-dates. There is nothing more fun to me that rallying up 6-8 children and letting them loose with games, toys, and activities. In short, I have experience with multiple age ranges and numbers of children. I drive, prepare food, and plan activities and play dates. With all the experience I have under my belt, I have become pretty good at keeping kids happy and having fun with them.

I have been baby sitting/nannying since I was 17. I have worked for various families throughout the years. Currently, I am a Preschool Teacher & the lead Teacher for a half day Kindergarten group at a Center in Moorhead, MN. I do everything from daily planning such as sensory activities, art, science, fine & large motor skills activities as well as working on number & letter skills. I currently have an Autistic child in my class of 8 so balancing individual needs, while taking care of the group as a whole, is very much in my skill set. Before I worked at Early Years I worked for 2 years at a Senior Living Community facilitating activities for Seniors with Alzhiemer's and Dementia. In addition to letting you know some of my past & current experiences I would love to let you know of some technical skills that aide in my ability to be a well rounded caregiver. I am CPR certified for infants, toddlers & adults. I know baby sign language, which I find cuts back on many of baby's earlier frustrations that stem from the lack of ability to communicate their needs. In addition I am 1st Aide Certified, have a college degree in Visual Communications & I have completed 80 hours of online teachers training though the state of North Dakota.

Teaching: This is my 5th year teaching elementary education. I've taught grades 1-4 (regular school year and summer school). Although I LOVE teaching, I currently live across the country from my family, and it is time to come back north. I nannied for 4 years in college, and really miss the one-on one time with children and would LOVE to use my teaching experience as a tutor, if applicable to your family. :) Nannying: In college, I was a nanny for 3 different families. 1) family was three girls-two pre-teens and a teenager. 1 year @ 20-25 hours per week plus some weekends/holidays while their parents took out of town trips. The next 3 years, I still took care of them while their parents traveled out of town 3-4 times per year. 2.) family: 1 year, 2 boys-4 yrs and 7 yrs old. 20 hours/week nannying/cleaning. 3.) family: 2 boys, infant, 4 yr. old, 10 hours per week and occasional babysitting. Baby-sitting: I started baby-sitting @ 9 years old for a neighbor friend and continued through college. Taking care of children has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, past baby-sitting, because I am the eldest of 3 siblings in my family, so I have been "taking care" of kids since my siblings were born. :)

Throughout my teenage years I baby sat for a few families during the school year, then became their nanny in the summer time. I helped with the household cleanliness, children's laundry, and kept older children responsible for their chores. In aspects of child care, I woke the kids up and made them breakfast, and helped them get ready for their day. Lunch and dinner were also prepared by myself. I incorporated educational and creative activities, and taught the kids relevant life skills. Additionally, I drove the kids to and from their activities as needed. I also worked as a camp counselor, then was promoted to assistant director of the camp. Throughout the weeks, we worked to educate kids ages 6-17 on horses, equine care, responsibilities and instruct riding lessons. I managed the campers through the full week of camp. My largest groups of campers numbered about 10 - 13. I created a curriculum for the week and coordinated educational opportunities and field trips.

I started babysitting when I was about 12 years old. I would babysit my little brother and for a few families that were family friends. When I was about 15 I started babysitting for a family with 7 children and another family with twins and an older sibling. In 2009 I started working for a daycare. I then started babysitting for a few other families with 2-4 children. After I moved to Fargo in 2011 I started working for a Daycare. They failed to pay me, so I then got a job at a daycare. I was there for a few months in the spring before moving back home in the summer. I am staying in Fargo this summer which is why I am looking for a summer nanny position.
