Kerrie B. - Seeking Work in Wappingers Falls

Hourly rate17.14 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

When I was 12 I underwent a babysitting course and would watch my younger cousins(ages infant to 4) ocassionally. I then went on to care for school age children through my middle school and high school years. When I was a senior in high school I taught a Sunday school class to kindergartens for a year and was good at creating activities to match the education criteria. For the first three years of college I was a student nurse and therefore did not have time to babysit on the side, but still picked up many skills of care during this time. During my Senior year of high school I picked up 4 babysitting jobs caring for children ages 6 months to 2 years old. During this recent time I enjoyed creating fun activities for an inside and outside environment. I enjoyed taking the children I cared for to the park and on other outings. I would also bring in fun crafts to do on rainy days, but prefer playing outside when possible. I am also CPR certified through the American Heart Association and have completed two first aid courses during my time at college.
