I have nannied for 4 wonderful little girls for 4 years off-and-on thru my college career. Sleepovers were a special treat, as well as our own New Year's Eve party with movies, games, and junk food, trying to stay awake til midnight! I arranged playdates, transported to and from swimming lessons, soccer, birthday parties, etc. Occasionally, we would go roller-skating or to the matinee, to the lake, and the park and pool were near every day outings in the summer! I also provided sporadic baby-sitting for these same girls since they were babies. CURRENTLY, I am a full-time nanny in Omaha, providing care for 4 children, ages 7 yrs (boy), 5 yrs (girl), 4 yrs(boy), and 2 yrs yrs (boy). I ready the children for school/preschool, drop-off and pick-up from school, cook lunch, do laundry and light cleaning, and also ready children for after-school activities, such as swimming lessons, ballet, tae kwon do, or soccer/basketball. I also recently nannied for a preemie baby boy, from September 2008-Sep 2009, providing special one-on-one care. I administered medications, performed physical therapy with him, and provided lots of hands-on exercises to help him gain mobility and improved mental function. I transported him to and from physical therapy and have accompanied his mom on hospital visits to Denver. I provide excellent care, treating them as though they are my own children. I cook meals, have art projects, take the kids to the pool or lake, go on walks, play at the park, etc. I do not allow TV watching except for one movie once a week or every two weeks--active play is better! I have helped with potty training, teething, and learning to walk/ride bikes. I try to ensure that the children get plenty of exercise and mental stimulation while having fun and being a kid. I also teach the children Spanish in a fun and engaging way. Slumber parties are a favorite pastime for the girls, some of which have been preceded by a trip to a roller skating rink.

I have worked as a nanny since August of 2007 for a total of 7 kids between the ages 0-11 for 3 different families since 2007. Two of the families I cared for were actually at the same time. Meaning the moms of both sets of kids were sisters so I cared for both of their kids all together. I have changed plenty of diapers, fed them, bathed them, read stories, played, and basically did anything you can think of. Anytime the weather is nice, I make sure to take the kids outside, go to the park, and also we go to the zoo, museum, to the pool, or any other fun activity as often as we can. I kept journals of the kids for the parents to see like how much they ate, when they went potty, how long they slept for naps, and any other special notes. The parents and I always communicate about the kids and made sure to keep in contact. I have also cared for a young boy that is developmentally behind and I would take him to speech therapy and sit with him through the classes and with his occupational and physical therapist. I helped to help improve his disability and did anything and everything I was asked to help him. I have plenty of experience with kids of all sorts of ages and all with very different personalities. I try to make sure the kids are all on a schedule and do things as fair as possible.

I have worked with a wide range of children in ages and with their families. I am currently a Behavior Specialist working with children who have behavioral/mood disorders. These children have been as young as 2 and as old as 7 as I have worked with them and their families for long periods of time. I believe this experience has allowed me to grow in understanding different family systems and situations in which I have adapted to and learned the importance of flexibility!! Through this job experience I have learned how to cope with stress and crisis (meltdown) situations of all stages! I strive to be as interactive with the children as possible and imaginative when playing games/activities, doing school work, or including them in household chores. I believe in following through in disciplinary issues (if needed) and have learned that consistency is key! I have also done countless hours babysitting all through my teenage years with toddlers (as young as 3 months) and families with 3 or more children at a time, including over-night stays when asked.

I have been babysitting since the age of 9. I had worked for almost every family in the neighborhood as a youngster. I was a nanny for a single mother of two for approximately two years when I was in my early 20's. Staying active with kids is always my goal. Reading books, putting together puzzles, playing games, sharing stories, drawing pictures and coloring are things we would do on a daily basis. Physically it's important to keep kids active, but it's important to keep their brains active as well. Art projects are great on rainy days. Art has always been a huge part of my life as both of my parents were artist. Using our imagination and being creative has always been important. Teaching kids to paint and draw is a thrill for me. Currently I work for a community center in Elkhorn where I work with children from 6 months to 8 years of age. We have classes to keep the kids active (gym time and yoga class) and keep minds sharp with puzzles, legos, coloring and reading activities. I give gym classes to kids 3 on up! That is my specialty!

Being big sister to seven younger siblings has given me the opportunity to care for children my entire life. Throughout my own childhood, I learned how to care well and carry the responsibility of caring for others. During my teenage years, I became a reliable and frequently called upon babysitter. I also led Sunday school for toddlers. My first experience nannying full-time was a treasure of learning and growing with a one-yr-old girl and her family. I also was able to nanny an energetic 4 year-old and a creative 6 year-old. As I began to look into areas of study for higher education, my belief in the importance of investing in children led me to pursue a degree in education. Sine I was pushed to study the development and needs of children and young adults, the training and experiences I acquired in University help me to care more skillfully. After University, I taught Humanities for 7th to 10th Graders in an International Baccalaureate school. I learned so much about encouraging the creativity and supporting the growth of children's minds and personalities! I have also grown through other experiences, including leading a Children's Conference for missionary kids in the Solomon Islands, teaching after-school English through songs and games to children ages 5-12, and leading 4th and 5th graders in the Rock Children's program! I truly appreciate the gift and responsibility of caring for children!

For 3 years throughout high school, I worked in a child care center in West Omaha where I cared for children ranging from ages 3 months to 12 years old. I spent most of the school year engaging with and taking care of the younger children, and in the summers I worked with the older children doing rockwall camps, swimming, games, and arts and crafts. Here i was trained in adult and infant cpr, as well as first aid. After this job, I then moved on to work at a daycare where I was in charge of the summer school age classroom. Each day I and another teacher took this classroom of 18 kids, ages 4-11, on different field trips around Omaha. At this daycare I also substituted in infant, toddler, and pre school rooms when needed. At these two jobs I learned everything you need to know about safety, child development, and caring for a child. I also have spent 6 years babysitting for a family of 4, and have babysat for numerous families around the Omaha area.
