Monica W. - Seeking Work in Tacoma

I have experience working as a full-time nanny for two families. The first was for a family of three boys (18m, 4, and 6) and we enjoyed doing a lot of activities such as swimming, playing soccer, going on scavenger hunts, and reading together. I was with this family for nearly two years. The last family I worked with has two girls, 2 and 7 and when we weren’t doing homework or at a lesson we spent our free time doing crafts, dancing, and playing “girlfriends.”

Hi, I'm a 21 year old experienced child care provider. I have a year's experience teaching preschool ..., and I have nannied for four families, the longest of which I worked for for six years. I nannied all four children until the youngest was in school. I have CPR and First Aid certification. I'm energetic, responsible and trustworthy. I can Cook and Clean. I would love to work in a challenging position. I'm Currenly Looking for a FT/PT job. From an early age, I have always had a love for children. Because of that love for children and the influence of my solid family oriented upbringing, I started baby sitting before I was in my teens, eventually becoming the primary babysitter for numerous families. I also love to interact and develop relationships with parents and I have many continuing close friendships that started with me caring for their children. Perhaps the biggest blessing for me is watching children develop into their own persons. I find great satisfaction in being allowed to be a part of their growth, knowing that in my small way I have contributed to their lives and vice versa. I've been taking care of children since I was a little girl. I started babysitting properly when I was 12. I was a nanny for two families in the summer, working 60 hours a week when I was 15. I absolutely love children! I am the proud auntie of 4 girls. I have had adult and infant CPR and first aid training.

Currently, on occasion, I will babysit my 14 month old niece. I have been caring for her since she was about 3 months old. A couple years ago, I would watch a 3 year old, on occasion, while her mother went to work. For quite a few years I was a camp counselor at a horse camp. I didn't necessarily have to provide child care, but I was still in charge of a group of children (2-5 children, ages 5-16)and had to look out for their safety and teach them the basics of horse care, management, and riding.

I've been in the business of caring for 9 years now. I started my first job at 16 with an after school program for kindergartners through 8th graders.

As a CNA I have taken care of people in a long term care facility, a rehabilitation center, a respiratory unit, a behavioral health center, a hospital setting, and an in home care agency. At 24 I went back to daycare and am currently caring for children from 3 months to 5 years old while going to school online to further my career. I have my stars training in early childhood education, a portable background check, CPR first aid certification, blood bourne pathogens certification, and food handlers card. I also have a wide range of knowledge in animal care. I enjoy arts and crafts with the children and have included a few photos of them. I look forward to helping you with anything you need.

I have worked with children on and off for years. I am almost 21 and have been baby-sitting since I was about 13. I love children and they love me. I am a very patient, loving, a go getter who loves to help parents out and ensure that they are completely comfortable with who their children are with. Since becoming a mother myself I have a whole new outlook on the care of children and a better sense of what the parent expects. I plan on bringing my son with me on the job which some people are not comfortable with but I think children being exposed to other children is great and more fun. I am currently working at a salon which I work only on Saturdays. During the weekdays I am completely open and ready to start working for a wonderful family.
