My past childcare experience: I took my first just to watch job at age 10 but it was only in the church and did not know what I was doing. My mom had a baby when I was 12 years old. I helped to take care of her until she had a son when I was 14. I helped to take care of them until they were in kindergarten and first grade in which I was in college. I also would nanny on weekends with my youth pastor. While she was studying for church. While at my first college, I started watching kids. I helped to nanny nanny in the summers for a family that had 2 kids. Started watching them when the baby was 6 weeks old and the boy was about 1 and 1/2 years old. Also while watching for that family, there were about 4 to 5 families that needed to have a babysitter so I started watching for them all and sometimes on the same night. I would change houses so that the different families all had a chance to have food for supper and the kids had a different place to stay each time. I have also worked in the church nurseries in several of the churches I have attended starting when I was 15. When I was married, I helped to watch my nieces, a set of twins and then she had 3 other girls to go with that. I now have a nephew I watch from time to time. So I have about 20 years experience. I don't just like to sit and watch kids, they have toys and things to be played outside. I like to get on the floor with the kids and either read a story or whatever the kids wants. That would be why I watched all those kids in college, they liked that I didn't just sit and watch tv while the kids were in the other room. When you come to watch or nanny a kid, the kids come first then if there is a special movie or show then maybe watch it. I am very patient with kids. The only way they will learn is for someone to be patient with them to learn a task that we as adults have been doing a long time. I have cooked, cleaned, laundered, bathed, read books, helped with homework, and learning problems, and have put kids to bed. I also teach at church for the kindergarten and first grades. I am good at helping do different crafts, learning some sports, (ex: basketball, softball, volleyball, and track sports).
Additional Comments: If you want someone who won't just sit on the couch with the kids in the other room, will get out and go to the park, or an event with your kids then you will be happy. I am a very patient person and laid back person, yet I know how to give correction in a way that the kids understand that what ever rules that have been put in place by the parents will still stand even if there is someone else watching them. I am not there to take or be the parent just the help when needed as a nanny. if the kids aren't happy then the parents aren't happy. I have also studied in school about kids, as well as read books to find the best way to care for kids. I am not cpr certified now but I have been, I will get certified prior to any job placements. I know a little Asl sign language, and pick it up easy, so if there are words that you have been using with your little one, I can learn and use them as well.
