I started babysitting when I was about ten years old. My mother would leave me with my younger twin siblings for a few hours at a time. As I grew older I started babysitting for families around the neighborhood and friends of my parents who had children. Most of the time these children were from the ages of two to ten years of age. When I turned fifteen I started working at child development center. There I worked with children anywhere from infants to twelve years old. Most of the time I worked with the school-age children. After school we would work on spelling, math, or any other homework the children would have. After everyone had their homework done for the day, we would enjoy a snack and then work on art projects or if it was a nice day, we would head outside to the playground. My junior year in high school I started working at Chuck E Cheese’s. There is where I meant my manager who was looking for someone to watch her child on the side. Starting the summer of 2009, I began to look after her infant son. Still to this day I watch her son from time to time and beginning again this coming summer of 2010, I will start to look after both of her children. She has a one year old and one on the way!

I started babysitting for family friends at a young age. I havev always enjoyed caring for children. In high school I was an after school care provider for elementary students. I helped with snack time, activities, and homework. From there I got my first nanny job for the summer. I watched 2 school aged boys for 3 summers. I prepared meals, helped with light house work, planned activities, took the boys to their practices, and helped stay on track with school learning. When the boys were old enough I went on to work in daycare. I mainly was in the infant room but often moved around to toddlers and preschool. I had up to 5 infants alone and up to 10 preschoolers. Duties included diapers, feedings, development skill teaching, naps, and play time. I enjoyed working with all the daycare children. My most recent job was for the past 3 years. I nannied for 4 families. The families set it up to switch houses every couple months. I worked from 7:30am to 5:30 pm. When I started the boys were 12 months. The third child joined at 6 weeks old and the fourth at 3 months old. The kids being 3, 2, and 1 now. Being with 4 young children was a challenge but I loved it and found it to be fun.We went on many field trips including the zoo, park, and pool. I taught preschool type lessons and did art and music each day. I prepared meals, changed diapers, helped potty train, nap time, and learning activities. I decided to move to Lincoln, NE to further my education and am currently looking for a family who needs a caring nanny. I would love to help.

I starting babysitting was I was twelve years old, and I absolutely love kids. I have babysat for children of all ages, from infants to young teens, with family sizes up to five. I love doing activities and playing games with the children while babysitting. I've babysat for neighbors, family, friends, and families from church. I stayed with my aunt and uncle in Colorado for two months during the summer of 2010, and babysat for their three children, ages 4, 8, and 10. I also occasionally babysat their neighbors. I've taken marriage and family classes as well as child development classes.

I have 4 women whom I have babysat for. The first one who I babysat for had only 1 child and he was 1-2 years old, I babysat for her during the summer for about 2 hours a day 2 days a week. The second woman I babysat for has 4 kids now, ages under 1, 2, 5, and 6. I have babysat for her since the eldest was 3 months old, off and on, mostly weekends when she wanted to go hang out with friends and at one point in time when her middle child was still an infant, she lived with us for about 6 months and I was watching them constantly while she went out with friends, played on the computer or just plain ignored the children(which was almost constant). Since the 3rd was born, I have babysat all 3 only a few times and only for a couple of hours at a time. The third woman, has a 2 year old son and I have babysat quite a bit while she would take her ex boyfriend to work, or when she would go to work if her regular babysitter couldn't. Even when she is around, I offer to help feed him and change his diapers and change his clothes and am always wanting to play with him and make him laugh and smile. The 4th woman is my cousin. I lived with her at during the summer and she has 4 kids ages 12, 10, 9, and 7. I babysat them a lot while her and her husband were at school and when her husband was working. Her 10 year old and 7 year old are a little slower and require a little more closer attention. Since I moved out I still go over and babysit now and then.
Wongani M. - Seeking Work in Lincoln

Hourly rate10.08 / hour

I started babysitting when I was nine years old. At that age, I would just do short, two hour jobs, usually only for one kid. Since then, my ages have varied and the number of children I watch at a time has increased. The most number of children I've watched for at one time is four, and the ages of which I have babysat range from infant to about 12 years old. I have done jobs that required me to transport children to and from activities and school, do the laundry, clean, help with homework, and prepare meals for the children. Last summer I even did a job that required me to drive two children to and from gymnastics practice in Lincoln, which is two hours away from my hometown of Norfolk, two days a week. I also have experience doing over nights and getting the children prepared for the day ahead in the next morning, whether that includes school or just a fun day around the house.

I first babysat when I was 16 for a family with a 4 month old daughter. I cared for her from 8 am to 5 pm each day throughout the summer. When I was 17, I was a nanny for a 7-year-old, 8-year-old, and newborn baby for 10 months. I arrived at their house as they got off the school bus and helped them with homework and supplied snacks and sometimes dinner. I also helped with laundry, pet care, and driving the children to and from swimming, parks, and various other activities. Starting when I was 17, I also started to babysit a 9-month-old a few times each month. A few months later, the couple had another baby girl and I babysat for them occasionally. This last August, my sister-in-law had a baby girl and I absolutely adore spending time with her. I babysit her whenever I have the opportunity to go home.
