I've been babysitting since I was 12 and I am currently a live-in nanny for a family with two little boys in Virginia. I have been with this family for over a year and love them with all my heart! However, due to a series of events, they have cut my hours severely and I am not able to stay with them as their nanny. I still live in their home and we are on wonderful terms. I am hoping to find a fitting family that I love just as much as this one! I have been a member of Big Brothers/Big Sisters , volunteer as a reading buddy at the local library (a summer program where you read to a child once a week), and done volunteer work in preschools in Tanzania, Africa.

At 45 years young, I have been caring for children over half of my life! In addition to caring for family members I began babysitting officially in middle school, & have enjoyed it every since. As an adult I have offered daycare services, tutoring services, and extended overnight care for military families. I have also served as a substitute teacher in the public schools since 2002 and have gained so much insight through all the students and teachers I've had the pleasure of working with. Thus I have much to offer you & your children!

To best describe myself, I am an energetic, friendly, fun-loving 27 year old. While earning my BA in child development, I was a nanny to a family in the area to 4 children aged from birth-8 years. My duties included caring for the children, housework, lots of fun scheduling, and lots of play time! After graduating college, I went on to work at a private boarding school in Connecticut where I work with children of all ages with behavioral challenges. After working there for a year, I moved to GA and worked as a full time nanny for a wonderful family with their daughter who was 15 months old. I believe that a positive, happy environment is what all children should be in. Engaging children in activities to keep their minds constantly learning is also very important. I feel my style is very loving, caring, patient and fun. I believe that being a nanny is not just a job, but a contribution to a childs life. I take my work very seriously in a fun manner. My hobbies include swimming, dancing, reading, gardening, hiking and many more. I have now relocated to Virginia Beach and am looking for a position with a close-knit, good valued-family! Thank you for your time, Gina :)

I am 25 years old and trying to find a family that is looking for a full time babysitter. I hope to making a career out of working with children. I have babysat since I was 12. In the summer of 2009 I babysat for a family with 3 boys from their spring break in April until they went back to school in early September. I was responsible for getting them off the bus, helping with homework, taking them to after school activities if needed, taking care of the dogs and preparing their meals for the day. I am currently helping out with my roommates 7 month old son about 3 days a week. In 2005, I worked in the Child Care section of the YMCA where I was responsible for newborns to 4 years old and I have helped with my 11 year old niece and 13 year old nephew since they were born so I have many years of experience with multiples. I am willing to help out with light housekeeping and laundry.
