I am caring person by nature. I have always liked to care for people for as long as I can remember. I especially enjoy caring for infants and children. I have a friendly personality, I am easy going, always respectful, very attentive, patient, and creative. Being a mother has made me excellent at multitasking. Throughout the years I have babysat for friends, co-workers, family, and neighbors who were in need of last minute care or just needed a few hours to themselves.
I currently babysit for two families on an as needed/on-call basis. One family has four year old twin girls. I have babysat per mother’s request since their birth, the other family has a thirteen month old girl and a four year old boy. I mostly provide weekend care for the families and when one of little ones are sick and can not attend daycare. My duties have included:
Prepare formulas and change diapers for infants
Bathe, dress, and fed infants and children of ages newborn-four years
Perform light housekeeping duties and plan meals for children in line with parents instructions
Perform morning/end-of-day routine for infants and children
Read to children and teach them simple drawings, arts and crafts projects, and songs
Organize and participate in recreational activities such as games and outings
Until a few months ago I worked full-time as a CNA/Caregiver. I provided basic care for adults who are developmentally disabled in various healthcare settings. Although working as a cna is very rewarding I want to focus on a job that will help me with my lifelong career goal. I know that I want to work with infants and children either in my own daycare center or in an educational setting. This fall I will be taking online courses in child development and early childhood education to further my knowledge in child development.
I am seeking a part-time nanny/babysitter position with a nice family where I can continue to provide a safe, nurturing, and stimulating environment in the absence of the parents.
