Hourly rate7.54 / hour

I've loved working with kids for as long as I can remember. I've learned a lot about childcare through my little sister, who is now 3 years old. I babysat elementary age children during Junior High. During my freshman year of high school, I participated in an after school program in which each high school student in the program is matched with one second grader, and spends two hours a week playing games and doing group activities with him or her. I completed the Counselor In Training (CIT) Program at a Camp during Summer 2013. The ages of the campers ranged from 9 to 12. I currently work with kids in Portsmouth.

My recent childcare experience has been nannying for two children for the past four years. I was responsible for light cooking, cleaning, driving the children to their activities as well as being attentive to all their needs. When I began my nannying position the children were 2 and 4 years old. Both children are extremly active and have very different interests. It was my responsibility to encourage their separate interests (sports and art) in away that both children were able to develop their interests while also learning about the others' qualities. I have enjoyed watching them grow and become very independent. Now that both kids are school aged I am looking for a new position. Also, most recently I have been taking care of my newborn son who is now three months old.
