Chantelle S. - Seeking Work in Garland

22.85 / hour
Full-time hours

Hi, my name is Chantelle; I was born and raised in Downey, CA. I graduated in 2012 from New Mexico State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing. I have roughly nine years of experience caring for children. I am a very enthusiastic, mature, energetic, fun, loving, responsible, and reliable. I speak both English and Spanish, and I used to teach dance for about four years. I have been taking care children for a majority of my life. When I was younger, my mother operated an at home day care, and taught me at a really young age. The majority of my experience is with infants, and toddlers between the ages of 2 weeks and 4 years old. However, I would be happy to nanny for all children under the age of 16. I have been responsible for serving well-balanced meals, facilitating age-appropriate activities, providing transportation to activities, and regulating schedules (meals, naps, activities, etc.). I have experience taking care of sick children and administering medications, as directed. I have been in Texas for about 3 years now. The first two years I provided care in Hurst with two families that joined together to receive care. I started working with their amazing and loving little ones since they were about 3 months old until they were about 2 .They are two weeks apart, so in a way, it's as if I was caring for twins. For approximately the last year, I have been working for a family in Dallas. When I started the little guy was 5 months I have loved and enjoyed helping provide care for this family. Unfortunately, some unforeseen personal complications have arisen with the family and they are no longer going to be able to have a nanny. I have my own transportation, and I m looking to start ASAP. I am looking for a loving caring family that wants a full time nanny (long term).

I've been nannying since I was in High School, starting with my uncle's kids during summer break. Since then I've had about half a dozen families, most starting when the kids were infants and ending when they started school. I have also worked with teenagers and multiples, everything from a single child (with special needs) to six children (while the mother was working from home). I come from a small family (one sister and a brother who didn't live with us) and have always been a care-taker to my parents and my younger sister. Set to graduate UTD in 2016 with a double major in Child Learning & Development and Speech-Language Pathology & Audiology, before starting on my Masters in Communication Disorders.

My name is Alexandra and I have been in the nanny business nearly 4 years. Since an early age I knew helping people was what brought joy to not only myself but the people I surrouded myself with. Working with children daily keeps me energized and motivated. Not only do I interact with each child I come across, I try to guide them with their decisions and listen to what they have to say. Also, the parents are a huge part of my job. If they aren't up to par this reflects on the child's behavior.

Most of my child care experience has been with families that know each other I have work with them because of their own recommendations, I have taken care of infants as young as 1 yr old to 5Yrs of age. in my past experience as a nanny/baby sitter I hate met families who up to today still keep contact with them, as I spend most of the day with the kids their is a bond and a trust that is build between them and I and that has allowed us to still keep contact whether it's for birthday wishes or a baby sitting night.
