Ksara T. - Seeking Work in Watertown

14.28 / hour

FIRST AID & CPR CERTIFIED. I have been babysitting for a while now and have been a nanny for a couple years for various families. I have worked with infants and younger children starting at an early age. I enjoy children very much. I enjoy playing with children and allowing them to be creative in expressing themselves, however, I was raised in a family that respect for others was important, so I would emphasize respect for siblings, parents, pets, property and self. I am very loving and compassionate, and understand the importance of listening to children. I will give them every attention and care.

Hi! My name is Katie, I'm almost 21 years old, and I am a Junior Elementary Education major with several semesters of work as a Music Education major as well. I currently attend SUNY Potsdam and received my music credits from The Crane School of Music. I have been a nanny for three families, and a frequent babysitter for more than ten. I've always gotten on well with children, and my Elementary Education background has given me professional skills for working with them and caring for them in the most efficient way possible. I have seven significantly younger cousins that I've helped take care of as they've grown up. My child care experience ranges from children who are only months old to middle school aged children. In high school and again in college, I've had opportunities to work with children with special needs as well and feel very comfortable with them and caring for them. My availability is from Memorial Day to the last week of August, every year.

I grew up the second child in a family of 10. Both of my parents are in the military so I was in charge of my younger siblings most of my life. It is for this reason most our friends and family have always trusted me to watch and care for their children no matter the age or situation. I am CPR and First Aid certified. I also have experience working with children with special needs, and illnesses that require special attention. I am available to work any hours during the week and would be willing to work a few weekends if needed. I have my own transportation and do not mind taking children places if that is required or requested. Meals are not an issue at all, I have cooked for many children I have watched, even a few with multiple allergies.
