Hello! I am a wife and a stay-at-home mother to a beautiful and sweet almost 2-year-old baby boy. I have almost 10 years of child care experience, paid and volunteer, for family and for others. I am excited to be considered for your position, and I look forward to meeting you and your children! I am looking to nanny/baby-sit in your home, though I will consider positions where I babysit in my home. I love children, that is why I do what I do. I hate that some caregivers just sit around all day, not playing with and interacting with the children in their care. It really frustrates me, if they are not willing to invest the time, love and energy into the children that they are caring for, why bother? Go find another profession if you don't really care for the children, and all you are doing if for is the money. That is NOT me! I love to interact and play with the children in my care. I am someone that is full of energy, and I love to spend my days with children. They are so exciting and wonderful, and their imaginations and creativity continues to amaze me, even though I have been around it for years. It is just the things that we neglect or take for granted as adults, that little children see and take note of, making every little moment one of surprise and wonder, and that to me is special. I would never want to miss that for the world! Baby-sitting and caring for children is not just a job to me, but it is my heart and passion as well. There is nothing I love and cherish more in life than caring for little children, and that is why I do what I do. Your children would be in excellent hands with me and would be treated as my own! I have had experience as a nanny for 17 months. The first family that I worked as a nanny for, I cared for 2 children, a 2-year-old and a 10-month-old. The second family is one that I am currently working for, and I watch 6 children (and help out with a 13-year-old occasionally). The children that I watch are 2 children that are 1, 2 children that are 3, a 5-year-old and a 6-year-old. I have been recently told that I would have to be let go due to financial reasons, and I am very sad to leave, but am looking for a new family to love and provide excellent and dependable service to. I also have spent many summers volunteering at children's summer camps and get-a-ways. I have also volunteered a couple of summers at a summer day care for children from low income families and I have volunteered at special needs camps. I also volunteered as a kindergarten teacher's assistant for a school year and I absolutely loved it! I graduated from high school (I was home-schooled) and I have completed some college. I am very experienced with teaching and educating children, and I have even helped my mom home-school some of my siblings. If I were to watch your children, I would incorporate education into everything that we do, from playing, to eating and everything in between. I try to make learning fun and exciting, that way as your children get older, they love learning and think of it as something great and wonderful, instead of boring and tedious. I do know First Aid and CPR (Infant First Aid and CPR as well). I have a clean background and I have never done drugs. I DO NOT smoke and I love animals. I am a very patient, fun-loving and optimistic person. I am also very clean and organized. I am looking for a full-time position, but I will consider part-time positions as well.
Mary - Seeking Work in Lancaster

Hourly rate22.85 / hour

I started babysitting whem i was about 12 years old. I helped care fpr a 3 year old boy, Drew. He was definatly a hanfull, but was fun and kept me busy at a young age. i then started babysitting for a family down the road. Hollie (10), clayton (9 months), and blue (the dog), were my next family that i would grow to love. Me being 15 and watching a young lady at the age of 10 was rough at the beginning, but after a few weeks of fun they soon learned i wasnt so bad after all. I would come over around 8 a.m. and leave around 7 p.m. I would make breakfast, lunch, and help out with dinner, which wasn't a problem at all fore I absolutly love to cook! we would go outside and play on the trampoline and swim in the pool. Every summer for 2 years i watched them, and occasionally added a few more kids when friends stayed over, or if theyre family friend needed some extra help. Either way they always kept me going. There have been tears, laughs, screams, and giggles but I know i provided them with great help and the chuldren with great fun! I am now 19 years old, i have been babysitting my 2 ( almost 3!! yikes!) year old neice Jyllian. I have watched her grow from a little 7 ounce baby to a 35 lb. little girl. I would watch her from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. my duties would include meal making, and then cleaning up the mess. I take her to parks, we do the grocery shopping together. For a while i was known to her as "mommy katie".. it was cute. For the past year i have been going over books and falsh cards, she has learned alot! we have accomplished potty traing and are now in 'big girl panties'. She is the smartest 2 year old i have ever talked to! i also have learned many things from her as well. She learned spanish from a show she watches, and 'taught' them to me. I love having her around to see how much enjoyment she is having out of life, like every child seeing something for the first time. Yes i have my boundaries, and most of the children i have been with have learned that. I don't tolerate violence, or tantrums, but there are ways to go about them with out hurting feelings.
