I have over eighteen years of experience as a professional Nanny. By this point in my Nanny career I have worked with 3 day old newborn babies, on up to 12 year old pre-teens. I adore working with infants and toddlers, as it's so fun to get to help them learn, and watch the milestones in development, as they occur so quickly those first few years. I like to be very active with the children in my care, doing daily outings, going to the park, or swimming, to children's classes or museums and storytime. There are so many avenues to learning, and establishing comfortable schedules and routines, that I believe are integral to those first few years.

My mom has been a home daycare provider for as long as I can remember. She's a great caregiver and I feel I've learned a lot from her. She's had kids of all ages so I'm an expert at a range of things. From changing diapers to playing soccer outside with the big kids, I've got it down! I started with the regular babysitting jobs when I was in sixth grade and my weekends have been full of those jobs ever since. Because my mom has so many families that she takes care of I'm always their number one sitter. I have babysat all different kinds of kids. Kids from a range of ages, kids with autism and kids that never slow down! Last summer was the first summer in four years that I wasn't a summer nanny. I would usually get to the house before the kids woke up and got breakfast ready for them. I shuttled them around to whatever activities/practices/play dates they had planned for the day and kept the house tidy. I am a clean freak and actually enjoy cleaning so even if it's not in the job description.. the house is going to be spotless when you get home! I love taking the kids to the pool and planning other fun activities or crafts to keep them occupied such as tie-dying or going bowling. Also, last year I was an after school nanny for two kids. I picked them up from school, got a snack ready, did their homework then usually played outside until their parents got back. I like being organized and having some kind of a daily routine to stick to.

As the oldest child in my family of 7 I have been watching children for the majority of my life. My parents became foster parents when I was 13 and remained foster parents until the adoption of my 2 youngest brothers three years ago. I was a nanny part-time for a family of 3 children during the summers I spent in high school and accompanied them on a trip over seas. The past 4 years as a college student I have maintained several part time jobs all of which involve interactions with kids. I have been working as part-time Child Specialist at an center as a preschool teacher as well as temporary help in the toddler and infant rooms, this will be my 4th year at the facility. I occasionally pick up shifts with the development center as well as shifts where I interact with kids ages 12-18 supervising them and teaching them basic life skills. I am also a aid to an 8 year old girl with physical disabilities, my tasks include getting her ready for school each morning. As an additional part time job I have began providing care to children ages 5 and under in an elementary school setting while their parents attend english as a second language classes. In my spare time I enjoy volunteering as a tutor for children after school.

I began to watch children at a very young age. At 14, I was regularly babysitting a 3 month old, a 3 year old and a 6 year old. A few summers ago, I was a nanny for a family of 5. I watched 4 fun-loving children. Their ages were 3, 5, 6 and 8. They were a fun bunch of children and we spent hours on end doing what kids love to do...having fun! From walks to the park, picnics, trips to the zoo or pool...the summer went by fast and memories were made that we will never forget! During my freshman year of college, I was a nanny for a boy and a girl. Their ages were 7 & 5. They were fairly independent so my duties were primarily to supervise their morning & afternoon routines. I ironed the children' school clothes, helped the little girl with her hair, fixed breakfast & sack lunches, went over spelling words & made them flashcards. I engaged them in fun learning activities that encouraged their creativity & raised their self-esteem. After making sure they had everything in order for the school day, I would drive them to school. In the evenings, I would pick the two of them up from school & take them home, to choir lessons, gymnastics, or 4-H Club. Over the years, I have gained a lot of experience & a lot of friendships.

Jessica C. - Seeking Work in Lincoln

Hourly rate9.45 / hour

My name is Jessica and I have been in childcare for over 10 years. Let me tell you a little about myself. I have worked as a Toddler Teacher for many years. I love how curious and enthusiastic little ones are towards life. I really enjoyed being a Toddler Teacher, but love being a nanny even more. I feel like I'm able to really get to know each child on a deeper level and care for their individual needs and schedules in a much better way. I have nannied for 5 families. The first one was a live-in position for twin infant girls. They were 5 months old when I started and two when I left. I had so much fun! My second nanny job was for a 3-year-old boy and his 6-month-old sister. This was a part-time afternoon/evening position. My third position was for a 6-year-old girl and her 9-month-old sister. I spent the morning with the little one and then picked up her older sister from Kindergarten, and then cared for them both when summer came. My next position was for a wonderful family with two kiddos. The oldest was 3 when I started and 4 when the job ended. His little sister is now 16 months (3 months when I started). I was with this family full-time for 1 year and loved every minute of it. My most recent family I was with for 5 months. They were a wonderful family with twin infants. 4 months when I started and are now almost 9 months. I really enjoyed these little ones but made the decision to move back to Lincoln, so had to leave this family end of Dec. All five of these families I still am very close with and keep in contact with. They have offered to be used as references for new job prospects and if you would like their numbers just let me know. I also have personal references as well. I am also CPR and First Aid Certified.
