Years of childcare experience6 yrs of experience

I have been babysitting since I was 13. So for 6 years I have been working with children and it is a gift I was given and love. Right now, since October, I have been working at my church’s Mother’s Day out as a preschool teacher of 12, 3-5 yr olds. I am looking for something different like I used to do before the day care, such as nanny’ing and child care in general. I’m just wanting more hours and I’m really looking for $12 hr, but need a min of $10 hr at the least. I also do meet and greet/play dates before hand such as an interview and I look forward to meeting you! Thank you!

Years of childcare experience< 1 yr of experience

Hello! My name is Haley Lee. I have been working with children from just a few weeks old to 10 years old since I was about 13 years old because my mother was a single mom working full time as well as babysitting very often for neighbors and family friends. I have quite a lot of experiencing working with children that have Down’s syndrome, Cerebal Palsy, Autism as well as other types of disabilities. They are a joy to be around, and I have a ton of compassion about. I love working with able-bodied children as well and do have a lot of experience. I have never nannied before, but babysitting has been a huge and enjoyable part of my life. As life does throw many obstacles, and although they have prevented me from having a car, etc, each day I’m working towards a better life for myself, and I get to do so by caring for little bundles of joy!
