Vanessa B. - Seeking Work in Waukesha

22.85 / hour

I have taught at a school in Brookfield, WI for the past 5 years. I "retired" in May when I had my son. At the school, I have taught in all the classrooms, from the infant room to kindergarten. I also taught the after school program, which is for grades kindergarten through 6th. I have nannied during the summers and after school during the school years for the past three years. The ages of the children that I have nannied for range from 7 months to 11 years, boys and girls. My nephew lived with me for the first seven years of his life, and he is now 12 years old. I am quite familiar with caring for both boys and girls, and children of all ages. I have been attending college for the past few years. Originally, I was going to college for Medical Assisting, and then onto Pediatrics. After two years of this, I decided I wanted to work with children in the educational field instead of the medical field, and I switched programs to Elementary Education. Through working at my school and the college classes that I have taken, I have obtained my CPR and First Aid certifications, as well as Shaken Baby Syndrome and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome certifications. I have graduated from my Early Childhood Education classes and have those certifications, along with the rest, available at your request. I plan to continue my education this fall. I have not registered for classes yet, as my nanny responsibilities would come first, and the classes would be scheduled to fit around that. Beyond formal training and jobs, I have been babysitting for families and friends for 15 years. References are available upon request.

These include maintaining a safe and healthy environment, preparing and serving nutritious meals, giving medical attention as the need arises, and being aware of each child’s personal habits, routines, and restrictions. I create a positive child care climate by preparing various activities, playing games, avoiding conflicting situations and nurturing self-esteem. I perform these duties along with light housekeeping. I have been responsible for children ranging in age from newborn to 13 years. References available upon request. Thank you.

I like to be the child's friend and caretaker. I like to see structure in the day's activities. Children feel safe and relaxed in a structured environment. I like to keep them busy, doing learning activities if they are old enough, and going to places that enhance their social skills. I also enjoy taking them to new places. I like taking kids to the Zoo or park when I can. I've had experience with children ages 2 months-16 yrs old. Forgot to add previously, that I have also taken Child Development and behavioral classes at WCTC.

I have been babysitting/watching children since I was about twelve after taking the babysitting class. My mom owns an in-home daycare where she cares for children, so I have always been around children. I have often watched children beyond the daycare hours and extra times that they needed care. I have volunteered at the nursery at Church and the kids programs available. For the past few summers I have worked at kids camps, located in Mukwonago and Oconomowoc. For the past four years I have cared for two boys after school and during the summer.
