I was the "go to" neighborhood babysitter growing up and had FT jobs lined up 2 years in advance. I have raised a brilliant, sweet and highly successful daughter in her 20 who runs an international boarding school; I sent her to the best private schools from at a young age and she went on to become high school valedictorian and graduate Ivy League college w/High Honors, since garnering 2 graduate degrees in Education. I was a FT, 24/7 live-in nanny for a 2 y.o. girl & 5 y.o.boy in 1993-4, a live-out nanny for a baby boy for 12 mos. in 1996; a FT 24/7 live-in nanny in 2006 for an infant girl for 7 months; and a 24/7 FT live-in nanny/tutor, cook and driver for a troubled 10-year old in 2012 for one school year.

During highschool, I worked as the 4/5 year old teacher at Vacation Bible School during my summers off. I apprenticed music theatre camps, too, teaching piano and vocal performance to middle school-aged kids. I loved it! During my junior year, I began working at Kumon Learning Center, teaching reading and writing to pre-K through 1st graders. I also babysat for local families, mostly infants through elementary aged. We'd go on outings to the waterpark, library, nature hikes, etc. I believe that children need to spend as much time as possible outdoors, having fun! not in front of the TV. After high school, I moved to Richmond to attend VCU and began working at a Nursery School, where we take care of 8 infants daily. Our responsibilities there include maintaining a happy, safe, and clean environment for the little ones, diaper changes, educational fun, arts and crafts, basic potty training, feeding and etiquette, teaching basic sign languages to be used at mealtimes, and above all, teaching the power of love and compassion at an early age. It's been very inspiring to work with the infant age group. Their purity and propensity to learn everyday forces one to remember the simple joys of life. To say the least, its been the best job I've ever had the honor of having. I'd love to work with children for as long as possible.

I have experience with ages ranging from new born babies to teens and have done everything from housework to pet-sitting and maintaining the house while the family is away. I do have experience volunteering in high school with children who have special needs and have babysat for a family with a child who had moderate downs syndrome. I have experience with errands, and planning grocery lists and balancing the budget. My responsibilities with the families I've worked for have included : Formula mixing, bottle warming, feeding, changing diapers, bathing, putting down for naps, transporting the children to and from activities, cooking and preparing healthy meals and snacks and preparing dinner for the family if necessary, take the children to the park, museum, pools or whatever the children enjoy doing, played games, made sure they're teeth are brushed and gone to the bathroom before bed and read bedtime stories and make sure they feel comfortable. I have zero pet allergies and will help out with the pets if needed and am available to do housework such as dishes, laundry, etc.

My name is Kate and I'm a 26-year-old graduate from VCU who is currently looking for a new family to care for. I have been taking care of children since I was child myself. For the past 15 years I've watched over at least 100 little ones ranging from newborn to 12 years old. I'm also children's xx and have my own small business. Here is a quick catch up on my nanny past, hold tight!. Four years ago I nannied for a family of 3 ages 1, 3, 5 in the mornings for a few hours Monday-Friday. I became family with this group and I would still be there but the mom decided it was time to leave her job and become a stay-at-home mom 2 years into it! While I was nannying this family I also worked at a Preschool full time taking care of kids of all different ages. After these two jobs I started working for a photography company taking newborn portraits here in the Richmond hospitals. I'm currently still with this job but I've also continued to work with families to help make ends meet. One was a family of 2 little boys ages 8 months & 20 months, and the most recent is a little 4-month-old baby girl. I can't wait to find a new family and help your little one grow!
