Hello! My name is Kerrie and this fall I will begin a PhD program in Child Clinical Psychology at Suffolk University in downtown Boston. I am looking for a babysitting job for during the week for 16-20 hours that I can have while taking classes. For the past two years, I have been the lab manager at the Harvard Lab for Developmental Studies, conducting social cognitive development research with children ages 2-9 years old. During these studies, I am often interacting with children one-on-one with their parents watching from a different room, and I feel very comfortable working with different age children.
I am also a volunteer through Horizons for Homeless children. I go to a shelter once a week and help run the “playspace” with children ages 12 months – 8 years old. There are usually 4-5 children present at a time and I organize activities for the children and play with them. We do activities such as reading, dramatic play, arts & crafts, and we work on motor skills.
As a undergraduate at Boston College I worked in two different developmental psychology labs and ran studies with children ages 3-9 years old. I would often go to daycares and the Museum of Science to run studies and I feel very comfortable in a setting where there are many children present at once. During college I also worked as camp counselor for 11-13 year old girls. I was in charge of a group of 12 girls and it was my responsbility to keep them engaged and safe during their time at camp.
I am most comfortable with younger children ages 2-6, but I have worked with all ages! I have an intermediate knowledge of Spanish and American Sign Language, and I would love to help with school work if that was required.
I love working with children of all ages and would love to babysit for your family!
