Sarah R. - Seeking Work in Fort Worth

Full-time hours

I'm incredibly hands on, outgoing and energetic and it certainly shows in the way I handle children. I love to entertain-I'm not in the least bit shy-and every child I've worked with (and their parents) would zealously agree. Typically I will handle discipline and 'sensitive' issues per the direction of the parent, unless otherwise directed. I'm very patient, and have handled so many toddler-stresses I'm a pro. I have a gift for disarming individuals, and children are no exception-though you will always have a child who hits a mood that's unbreakable, I pride myself in the fact that most of the time, I can find a solution where the child is happy-and no rules or principals have been compromised.I’ve worked with infants hours after coming home from the hospital (can puree circles around any kitchen, swaddle with the best of them, and distract even the most fussy of newborns!) I’ve spent hours with wobbly legs helping them master the art of standing, and cheered and clapped as they take their first steps. I’ve sang praise songs through their terrible two’s (because let’s be honest, nothing else will get you through ‘em, not even excedrin), and tiptoed my way through their mischievous toddler years. I’ve been so blessed as to experience kids all the way up to grade school and further. I majored in Children and Youth Ministry at Liberty University and am not only educated, but even passionate about teenagers if a position calls for it.

I was a nanny of two children for two years. I started with these children when they were 5 and 9 years of age. They were a girl (age 5) and a boy (age 9). My duties included picking up the children from school and taking them home. I would feed them a snack and occasionally dinner. I would help with homework and play with them. The play included park time, outside time, or board games or even imaginary play. I was also a babysitter for children of all ages. I would feed them and put them to bed. I have changed diapers. My clients have had children from infants (2 months old) to around 13 years of age. I have provided care for a little boy since he was around 5 months of age until he was two. My duties included feeding (formula and baby food) and changing diapers. I also took him to his other babysitter when I went to school during the afternoon. I have also babysat for a family with eight children. The ages ranged from infant to 12. I have enjoyed all of my jobs and this list is not the only jobs I have had this these show my widest range of jobs. If you have any questions or would like a full list just contact me!

I worked atin the Childcare department located in Sugar Land,TX from June 2008-June 2009. I took care of anywhere from 1 to 10 kids by myself at a time, from ages 9 months to 10 years of age. I changed diapers, fed the children meals and snacks, and generally just played and colored/entertained the children. I learned how to overcome obstacles that you may face with children of all ages and feel that I am very good with kids. I would have worked there longer, but I left for TCU in early August and wanted to have a last free summer at home with my friends.

I am qualified for this position through practical experience and I love children. I am very comfortable with feeding, diaper changing, etc. and will give all the care and love that a baby needs. I raised 2 wonderful children and now I’m very active with my grandchildren to keep their bodies and minds busy when I am with them and would be active with your children as well. We have fun with the following activities: reading, music, singing, dancing, putting puzzles together, playing ball that requires running and jumping, cooking/baking (when age appropriate), coloring/activity books, playing card or board games, movie night (child appropriate movies) and other activities. I also try to make everything a learning experience, but still have fun. My resume does not reflect Nanny/Babysitting experience since most of my work experience was in an office environment, but I will be glad to send my resume to you for your review. I am a loving, caring, honest, responsible, fun and energetic person who loves children. I have a reliable vehicle with a good driving record and I do not smoke.

I am 25 years old and I am currently take online college classes and have started my career as a Realtor. I am looking for a part time nanny job so I have stable income for, at least, the next year, if not longer. I have many years of babysitting and nanny experience. I worked with children of all ages and have worked with special needs children. The last family I worked with had 2 young girls(5, 6) and I was with them for two years. Our parting was mutual. Their grandmother had retired and wanted to watch the girls and I was focusing on starting as a Realtor. I have now started my career but need a part time gig to keep me on my feet. I love working with kids and helping them grow. In the past I have taken kids to the museum, the zoo, to paint pottery, to different lessons and activities around town and to the library among other places. I also have enjoyed relaxing days at home with kids reading, doing crafts, taking walks, building forts and watching TV(if allowed, of course).
