Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

Whether in preschool, daycare, or in-home i've been lucky enough to work with kids pretty consistently for the last 13 years of my life (geez I sound old :/) Gosh I love it though! My last 3 childcare jobs have all been in-home, and that's definitely what I enjoy the most. I love having the opportunity to just really teach & engage kids through crafts, music, stories, cooking, nature... so incredible watching them grow & learn. They're just all so brilliant & such unique personalities & we just have so much fun! I'm currently nannying 2 toddlers (20 & 21 months) & have been since they were 2 & 3 months. I have them from 8:30-5:30 M-F. At the end of August however I will be moving to East Nashville & will no longer be caring for one of these girls. So I'm looking for an additional child (or 2) to join us in our fun-filled days!! While our days our undoubtedly fun-centric, they're definitely filled with lots of learning. We have a weekly theme, letter, & color that our daily activities are focused around. We do 2-3 crafts a week based on our theme & coloring pages based on our letter. Song & dance time also correlates. Mondays are library days (story-time, puppet show or music time). We also get all of our books to bring home for that week's theme & extras the girls pick out of course. We spend a lot of time outside! The heat's been limiting lately, but generally we go to the park at least twice a week, & the zoo every other (have a membership & under 2 is free). Neighborhood walks are a regular, & we've added some sprinkler action as of late. Many other activities come up, but these are what we stick to on the weekly. Things will definitely change a bit once the move happens, but hoping to keep most activities up. :) A lot will be dependent on the age(s) of the additional child(ren). I am not necessarily only looking for a toddler age child. I'd love to have anywhere from 2 months to 5 years really. The 20-month-old I will still be watching is developmentally where a 3-year-old is typically at, but she is so good with kids of all ages. She LOVES babies (so gentle & loving), but loves playing with older kids as well! I currently watch the girls at her home, & since they will be moving to East Nash as well, would like to continue watching them in their new home. Definitely open to other arrangements if preferred! But yeah, that's the just... if you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me. call, text, email, whatever's easiest :)

I really love Kids. I have been babysitting since age eleven. I have worked in various church nurseries. I worked at an early headstart for a semester through a college job program. I worked for for three years at a daycare as a lead teacher for one and two year olds. Then I left to be a nanny for 7 month old twins and their two older sisters when they got home from school. I got the job through this website. I watched them for 1 year until they moved out of state. For the past year and a half, I have been the lead two year old teacher, at the previously mentioned daycare. I am responsible for preparing daily curriculum for my two's class. I have had 30+ hours of state aproved training classes that focus on early childcare (infant-5). I am CPR and first aid certified. Now that I have my own child, I have learned ALOT more about childcare. Overall I just love working with children and have no desire to have a job that does not involve them :)

I have previous experience as a nanny with my longest and most challenging stint for a family with 5 children(2,4,6,7 and 9). I have also been babysitting for the same family for 10 years now that I look at as family. My availability is open and flexible. I am willing to work nights and weekends as well. I have experience with all ages, from newborns to teens. ABOUT ME: Because of the way I was brought up(single parent home with lots of relocating!), I adjust quite easily to different situations and work well under pressure. I love to shop. I love to read. I love to write. I love to cook. I love to play games. I love to have thought provoking meaningful conversations. I love to travel. I love adventure. I love to laugh. I love to make others happy. I love to smile and make others smile. I am creative. I am loving. I am a socialite. I am silly. I am independent. I am determined. I am a music lover. I am sensitive. I am attentive. I am humorous. I love the comforts of home. I am seeking a family that is as loving as I am and that will accept me as a part of their family. I'm not looking for a job, those are easy to come by. I am looking for a family that I can grow with. I will be a big sitter, a cousin, an aunt. I love children of all ages and I am capable of taking care of multiple children of different ages. I love to entice children with games, songs, movies, outdoor activities, anything that will make them mentally, physically, and emotionally succeed. I am a good cook and have no problems preparing meals for the family. I am also capable of doing laundry, cleaning, running errands, and taking care of home while you are away. I can also assist the children with their homework and help them with other activities. I am also capable of keeping them busy and being productive when they are in my care. I am also capable of assiting with the needs of mom and dad. I have no problem with running errands, grocery shopping, handling dry cleaning. I pretty much can take care of the household in it's entirety.
Sidnye L. - Seeking Work in Nashville

Hourly rate14.28 / hour

Hi! My name is Sidnye and I'm currently a sophomore Public Relations student at Liberty University. I'm nineteen years old and originally from Charlotte, NC. Music is what I am passionate about, and I've been touring with a band for the past six months. We recruit for the school and play many venues, churches, and schools. I also released my own debut EP in August of 2010. I have been babysitting since I was thirteen, and nannying since I was sixteen. When I began babysitting, it was for the four children (who were all five at the time!) of my orthodontist. As I got older, I started babysitting for family friends and neighbors. I nannied three days a week in the summer of 2008 for my neighbors triplets, and in the summer of 2009 I began nannying three days a week for another family. The father worked about fourty-five minutes away, the mother was paralyzed, and their son was seven had asberger's syndrome. I worked for them part-time for two years. I cooked, cleaned, ran many errands, played with their son, and kept things in order. It was an incredible experience and they are the most wonderful family! They ended up moving a few hours away, so six months before they moved or so, I began sitting two days/nights a week for another family I met through my high school. They had one son who was seven at the time, and I've babysat him a couple days a week ever since. I run errands, clean, and cook for them as well. I'm extremely close to their family now and it's been such a great experience getting to watch him grow up. He's almost ten now! Now that I am in Virginia for school, my sister is about to start babysitting for them. I have babysat/nannied children from three months to fourteen years old. I love children, and I love getting the chance to pour into their lives when parents are not able to always be there. I am a hard worker, a straight-A student, and I'm enthusiastic about kiddos. I look forward to speaking with you! Thanks!

With over a decade of experience nannying and babysitting for a range of ages from birth through the teenage years, as well as being a member of the International Nanny Association; I know that attention and dedication is so important to a young infant, toddler, and preschooler. With such extensive experience with newborns and up, I am a very adaptable and flexible person. Potty training, sick kids, preschool activities, are all old hat. I am also Healthcare Provider CPR/AED certified. I have also taken continuing education courses through Texas A&M AgriLife Extension on infant and toddler development, infant-preschool nutrition, and on infant and toddler milestones, as well. Recently, I have been nannying full time for a wonderful 16 month old little boy. I have been with him since he was 7 months old. However, his father received a job offer in Minneapolis. So, my time with him is at an end. It has been wonderful helping him grow and develop from a little baby to the toddler that he is today. Currently, on the weekends, I help at conferences. This past weekend was wonderful as I was taking care of a 4 week old preemie and a 2 month old. I love being with children at their earliest stages. Tidying the kitchen and doing the baby/children's laundry during downtime comes naturally to me. Meal prep, sleep training, sick little ones, bathing, and developmental activities are all things I'm well versed in.
