Malerie S. - Seeking Work in Williamsburg

Hourly rate7.83 / hour

Growing up in a very large, tight-knit extended family, I have been around younger children for as long as I can remember. I believe that I was born with a passionate affinity for children - playing "Mommy" or "House" were among my favorite things to do as a child! At family gatherings, I commonly serve as the family's "entertainment" for all the younger children. I didn't begin babysitting alone until I turned 14, when I began watching two of my toddler cousins every day after school. As I got older, more family members began to seek my care and soon, I began working for friends of my family members. I have babysat infants, toddlers, and young children and I truly enjoy working with all ages. This past summer, I worked as a personal aide for a 4-year-old with autism. The job also involved working as an assistant at a small preschool that caters to children with special needs. During high school, I worked as a Red Cross Volunteer in the pediatric ward, playing with ailing children such as those with cancer and other terminal illnesses. I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every babysitting opportunity I have had and I firmly believe that the children are what have made my experiences so enjoyable.
