Paula S. - Seeking Work in North Bergen

22.85 / hour

I have been providing childcare for just about six years now, and have loved every second of it. I started by earning my certification from the American Red Cross Association to provide childcare, and dove right in. I spent some time as a sitter for the Magnanimi and Ritz families in Hoboken. I would often care for their two toddlers and infant simultaneously. I'd set up play dates and take them for walks, along with preparing meals, changing diapers, giving baths, and putting the kids down for naps/sleep. When they moved away, I started to provide part-time care for 4-year-old Alex while also working at Spanish American Daycare Center. I always took Alex for walks and to the park. At the daycare center, I was in charge of the school-age children. I would help with homework and studying, as well as preparing fun activities to do afterward. Although I no longer work for the daycare, I still volunteer every summer for their Vacation Bible school, during which I am typically in charge of looking after fifteen to twenty children. I am currently working with the Davis family as a tutor/sitter for their two children. My responsibilities include pickup from school/after-school activities, effective test preparation (with marked improvement), homework help, and light meal prep.

I took care of a 3 month old baby girl, Elizabeth, and a 5 year old girl, Peggy. I was responsible for giving them breakfast lunch and dinner, playtime, reading, bathing Elizabeth, play dates, taking them out to places like the zoo, the park, etc. When it was naptime I would do my duty of cleaning the house. By the time Elizabeth started attending school at age 5, I started to do full housekeeping in the mornings until it was time to pick up both children. When they got older, I began to take them to their activities, such as guitar lessons, softball, soccer, etc. They are both very lovely girls I’ve seen both of them grow and am proud of the bond which was formed. Elizabeth is now 9 and Peggy is 14. Also I took care of 3 month old baby girl, Elizabeth, and a 5 year old girl, Peggy.

I have been doing "date night babysitting" since the age of 14. Although I have over 8 years of nanny experience I have only been with 2 families (3 years with one family and over 5 years with the current family) I find this to be a very rewarding career, especially the fun i have with the children, the opportunity to be imaginative and creative, the variety offered by the job, helping children grow, explore and learn about life, the positive responses and appreciation i received from a child.
