Caroline C. - Seeking Work in Arlington

Hourly rate8.19 / hour

I have worked in childcare for many years. I began working as an assistant counselor at my local hometown children's camp when I was only 13. I started babysitting when I was 15. Since then I have babysat for many different families with kids of all ages. I also worked at a Camp one summer called Camp Mystic. I stayed in a cabin with 11 year old girls. I taught arts and crafts at camp for children of all ages. I took a full time nanny job in May 2010 and worked over the summer with the family. Once school started up in August, I moved to part-time and picked the kids up from school and stayed with them in the afternoons. I did many things for this family including preparing snacks and sometimes meals, driving the children to practices and after-school activities, helping with homework, feeding pets, running errands, and overnight sitting when needed. I have also worked in childcare at my church since I was in high school.

Hourly rate17.14 / hour

I have been working with children since the age of 10. My first babysitting job was for my next door neighbor. She had two children(ages 4 & 6). At the age of 19 I began a summer camp job at a local recreation center. The ages of the kids I would care for on a daily basis were from 5 - 15 yrs old. During this time, I began to learn quite a bit about the nature of child care and how to cope/deal with the many "surprises" that come with it. During this time, I was doubling my child care duties at the child care center. During the school year I would work at the local child care center; my primary age group ranged from newborns to 2 years old. I can honestly say that I have cared for all children up to 16 years of age. Since graduating college with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and a minor in Counseling, I have been in the education system. I started out as a substitute teacher and I am extremely proud to say that I am nearing the end of my eighth year of teaching. I teach freshman English I and I am loving every second of it; it is never boring (to say the least). Compared to other prospects you might come across on this website, I could very well have the least experience with being a proper "nanny". However, I would like to assure you that you and your children will receive the best care and respect I can possibly give and that you all deserve. Thank you for your time and have a blessed day.
Angel M. - Seeking Work in Arlington

Hourly rate22.85 / hour

I love being a nanny! I have been a nanny for the past few years and have been babysitting since I was 12. I have received certifications in child and infant CPR, First Aid, lifeguarding, and I have even gone to babysitting classes. In working with children, I encourage reading and using their imagination, and limiting time on electronics. I have experience working with newborns all the way to junior high aged children. Not only have I been a babysitter and a nanny, I have also worked in an aftercare program for school-aged children. In working as a nanny I have had the opportunity to cook for families, run small errands, help with laundry when needed, and help keep the house clean, though my main focus is always on the children. I have watched up to 5 children at a time, though I feel most comfortable with 3 children or less. I own a vehicle that is dependable and will get me and your children wherever we need to go at all times! I am an animal lover who owns two dogs. Though I may seem young, I am mature and very responsible. I can't wait to become your nanny.

I had my first full-time nannying job when I was 18. I cared for a new born for a year and a half before the family relocated. A few years later I started working with a family of 3, primarily caring for their 6 month old but also helping out with before and after school activities with the older kids. I was also with that family for a little over a year and half. I am still very close with the family and will babysit for them on date nights from time to time. Along with my full time nannying jobs I also volunteer at my church to help with childcare. I am very comfortable and have experience with children of all ages.
