Sarah M. - Seeking Work in Burlington

Hourly rate17.14 / hour

When I was 10 I started working at the church nursery with infants. I also helped care for family member's children. At 13 I began babysitting regularly, and continued through high school. During college, I was an after school nanny for two school aged children for over a year. I had a wonderful relationship with both children and their parents. For over two years I was also a Lead Research Assistant for a social study where I worked with middle school children. I received my Bachelors in Psychology with a minor in childhood development from The University of Texas at Dallas. The summer after I graduated, I worked for the DFW Center for Autism. I worked at the preschool as an individual therapist and group teacher after I received my fourth level certification in Applied Behavioral Analysis Therapy. The preschool was a mix of autistic and typically developing children. I also worked as a substitute teacher for a K-12 private school.

Hourly rate17.14 / hour

I have been working in a childcare center for two years now. This past year I have spent the majority of my time in the infant room caring for children from eight weeks old to one year old. Most recently, I have been covering the maternity leave in the one to two year old classroom. I began babysitting at 13 years old and was a summer nanny for a family with a ten year old for three years. When I began my college career to get a degree in Elementary Education, I continued to babysit. I also was working in schools as part of my student teaching requirement. I have planned and taught developmentally appropriate lessons from preschool to third grade. I enjoy planning hands on lessons that allow and encourage children to explore their surroundings.

I love working with kids and have found it to be one of the most enjoyable and rewarding jobs. This past winter I was employed at a xx in their daycare department working with four year olds.

The previous two winters before that I worked as a nanny for a family with two kids ages four and six.

In my spare time I have done volunteer work for an elementary school. And I have had numerous babysitting jobs since I was thirteen.
Allie S. - Seeking Work in Burlington

Hourly rate11.42 / hour

I began babysitting when I was 14 and continued to do so through high school for many families. For three summers during that time, I had a full time nanny job for a family with two girls. The older girl was 2 when her sister was born. I learned how to care for an infant and continued to babysit for this family until she was 3 years old. I also babysat for a family with four boys between 8-12 years old during high school as well. I watched the boys full time for 1 week while they're parents went on vacation. I took a break from babysitting the first year of college while I focused on my studies. I found a family with four boys ages 1-6. I watched them weekly for over a year until they moved to NH. My classes demanded more of my time my last two years of college and then I chose to travel before getting a full time job. I'm eager to meet new families and beginning babysitting again!

I have had experience with a variety of families in a variety of settings. I am currently working as a personal care attendant for a ten year old girl with autism.
