PAID EXPERIENCE: NANNY-4 YRS EXPERIENCE- I was a nanny for two separate families and can provide phenomenal references, from both the families (whom I still receive holiday pictures from and still talk to as though they are family friends) and any play dates that I took the children on (nannies and parents of neighborhood children) as well as references from places like where both the parents and employees recognized my exceptional gift with children and were often surprised to find I was a nanny and not a mother.) There is not one person I have come across while caring for children that I would not be proud to use as a reference and who could say anything short of how amazed they were at the loving way I treat children as my own. ABOUT MY FAMILIES: For 2 years I loved and cared for 2 year old twins (boy and a girl), and for 1 1/2 years I taught life lessons and abcs/numbers to and snuggled with at every chance an adorable 3 year old boy and beautiful silly 18 mo old girl. The baby I helped to raise from the day she arrived as a beautiful newborn from the hospital! DAY CARE EXPERIENCE-3 YEARS- I started as a teacher's assistant (in a 2-3 year old room and also worked with ages from infant to 5) and quickly was transferred over to another location where a teaching position/promotion was waiting for me. I completely turned over a classroom that was less than cleanly and less than structured, and cared for up to 12, 1 1/2-2 year olds with only one assistant. The way I took that classroom and transformed everything about it and every corner of it for the better was extremely appreciated by the parents there. When I decided to leave to become a nanny, I had several parents and children in tears to lose me at the center. Likewise, I shed quite a few tears myself. But I was proud that I left a mark on that room and changed it for the better before I left. OTHER PAID EXPERIENCE: Long before that I worked during my summers in high school as a summer camp instructor, caring for children of all ages. Even though it was paid, I would hardly call that a job, because it was just too much of a blast! I also did some babysitting after school when I was in high school around the neighborhood. UNPAID PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: I cared for my younger siblings--all (4 of them) more than 16 years younger than myself- my 2 brothers who are now 10 and 8 (time goes so fast!) I helped to raise from when they were born until I left home. I also have experience caring for many younger cousins of all ages. I even mother's helped when I was 10 years old!! I have watched children since I was merely a child myself and it is as natural to me as breathing.

As the oldest in a family of 3 girls, I have been familiar with caring for children since I was young. Throughout high school, I babysat for one family of three young children (1,3 and 5 when I started) and performed such tasks as bathing them, getting them ready for bed, taking them to the park, feeding them, and supervising them at the pool. In college, I babysat fairly regularly for several different families and was a summer nanny for two 9 and 11 year old girls. I was responsible for entertaining them and making sure they maintained chores in the house and were fed and bathed. I've always gotten along well with children and have never had any problems disciplining and entertaining the children I babysit.
