I’m a nanny because I'm looking for a nanny position to fill my mornings. I'm a student at the University of Colorado but have recently decided to take a bit of time off to work. I love kids and have a real passion to work with them. They're so fun and provide a sense of imagination that is so wonderful. I feel as though working with kids really inspires me to act more like a kids myself-- in the best possible way. The energy and spirit kids provide creates a fun and entertaining work environment.
My past childcare experience When I was about 12 I started babysitting for a family that lived across the street from me. They had a 3-year old boy that I loved playing with in their cute backyard. We both really enjoyed playing with Leggos and getting messy in the sand box together! Our other neighbors had three kids that I watched over. I was probably about the age of 14 when I sat for this particular family. They had three children at the ages of 7, 5, and 3. I enjoyed hot summer days with these kids, playing with sidewalk chalk, swinging, and even holding lemonade stands. I babysat for these families for a couple of years and then my family moved to Colorado (from Michigan). The first family that I babysat for in Colorado had three kids, 6, 4, and 2. I would set up the sprinkler for these energetic kids. I also really enjoyed making cookies and coloring with them. Most recently, I work as a nanny after school for a family in Boulder. I pick these kids up from school, take them home to help with homework and eat a healthy snack, and then I usually drive them to their after school activities. I was also with this current family all summer from 8 to 6. Growing up babysitting, I have grown a love for it because it has taught me a lot about myself. It has taught me that I’m a very patient and understanding person and really a kid at heart!
Additional comments I work as a nanny m-f from 3 to 6. I would love to find a job to fill my mornings.
