I worked at a child development center for two years. I worked primarily with 4 year olds, but "floated" to other rooms as needed, including ages 1 to 5 years. From June 2010 to June 2012I had the pleasure to work as the full-time nanny for a lovely family with a 18-month -old and a five-year-old (at the time I started), The job ended when they moved to another state and I was not in a position to relocate. Following that I have joined the staff at a local daycare and currently work in the 4-5-year-old room.
Shenishia  T. - Seeking Work in Norman

Hourly rate17.14 / hour

First and foremost, I absolutely love kids and have since I was young! I have had the blessing to work within my church nursery since I was 8-years-old. Then, shortly afterwards in 2007 I ended up working part-time for a nursery working with children ages newborn all the way up to 8th grade. The joy about working with younger kids is just their excitement, joy, imagination, dreams, energy, etc., that you too get to live into those crazy ideas they come up with. I love getting to be a positive role model to younger kids and getting to encourage them. For the last 6 years I have also voluntarily worked with special needs kids. The Special Olympics will forever hold a place in my heart as well as every child I have had the opportunity of working with at these events. It is such an incredible joy to see what opportunities they have within the Special Olympics to feel special and still dream like anyone else. Also, I have been blessed with numerous opportunities to go and serve on several different mission trips directly for child ministry within Houston, Mexico, Chicago, and Haiti. Thanks for taking the time to check out a little bit about who I am and my heart for kids. I look forward to hearing from you and maybe even working alongside you and your beautiful family.
Brooklin B. - Seeking Work in Norman

Hourly rate8.57 / hour

Growing up, as many young girls do, I babysat for various families. My first consistent family I babysat for was two years ago during the summer in my hometown of Tulsa. The children were eight and seven. My duties included making meals, helping with bathing, and taking the children to any appointments or practices. Leisure activities and trips to the park, pool, etc. were common. I am an OU student, and during the school year I currently nanny for four children, two girls ages 11 and two boys ages 8 and 9. They are from two separate families and all four attend different schools. Five days a week, I pick all of them up from school, and then stay with them back at their homes. Homework assistance, entertaining, and cleaning are a few of the things expected from these families. I have always had a passion for children, and enjoy being a nanny. Before I switched my major to nursing, it was elementary education. While in high school, I tutored younger children at the middle and elementary schools. Also, I was a cheerleading coach for 3 years to third graders. I have plenty of patience and have developed skills towards children regarding teaching.

I grew up in a family of five girls and one boy. I'm the second oldest of 6 and there are 12yrs between myself and the youngest of my siblings. I also have experience babysitting for families at my workplace and families who are friends of my parents (ranging in all ages of children including newbornes). I love children and I work with youth on a weekly basis at church (apx 300 youth in weekly attendance). I have a small group of girls that I mentor routinely between the ages of 12 and 16. I also have experience watching, teaching, playing and reading with younger children and of course I love taking care of babies and toddlers (they're adorable)! If you have any specific questions relating to situations or experiences I've had babysitting please feel free to ask me.
Carly C. - Seeking Work in Norman

Hourly rate14.28 / hour

I began working with children at a young age through my church's nursery. When I started my adventure at 12 I was very new at everything and learned so many valuable lessons. I then moved on to becoming the childrens special education director and was able to work with children with all types of disabilities such as, autism, down syndrome, and even hungintons disease. Many of the children who attended the church nursery I also babysat outside of church. I have babysat twins and triplets before also.
