I'm The Nanny/Babysitter For You....Why? Because I'm A Mom So I Have The Best Experience — Brooklyn, NY
My name is Jenna, and this is not a typical resume. I rather tell you about myself and my background then you decide the next step. I have 10+ years experience as a nanny/babysitter, you can say I have the best experience because I am a mom myself. I'm fluent in English, I was born here in Brooklyn. Through the years, I have worked with children from newborns as young as 5 weeks to age 17. I have experience with twins, to special needs children as well. I have a can do attitude. I'm a great asset to first time parents. Why do I love being a nanny/babysitter? Because I know I make a difference in the lives of the little ones I come in contact with. What a joy to know I've been a positive influence in their lives forever - even long after I am gone. I love seeing a child's smile when they learn something new, hear a new sound, even better when I'm the person responsible for that. A child's giggle is the best sound in the room. In my opinion a screen is not a babysitter for a child no matter what the age, you should always have crafts, music, games, toys, walks, go to a museum, zoo, a park, and story time for them. Stimulation is growth. People forget that now with all the technology we have. Singing and talking to babies as well is also a wonderful way to teach them and stimulate their senses. Working as a nanny, there are endless moments to teach through exploration, discovery, observation, sensation, and performance. I seize every opportunity to expose the children to new activities and experiences which would be of the greatest benefit to them. So to sum it up a nanny wears many different hats every day here is my definition: Nanny (nah-nee) n. childcare provider, activities director, teacher, dresser, beautician, nutritionist, chef, hygienist, janitor, nurse, dramatic reader, performer, entertainer, costume-maker, arts-and-crafts instructor, dance partner, stroller pusher, personal shopper, secretary, historian, detective, confidant, companion, counselor, coach, body-guard, self-defense instructor, tutor, cheerleader, appreciative audience, hugger, boo-boo kisser, potty trainer, learner, listener, helper, arbiter, peace-keeper, honorary extended-family member, life-long influence, shaper of the future, the list is endless and like I said changes to each child/families needs. References available up request. Thank you.

Part-Time Babysitter/Pet Sitter/Assistant/Home Care — Brooklyn, NY
I started babysitting at the age 12 along with working at a summer camp. The longest family I babysat for was my next-door neighbor. I babysat her child from when she was 3 years old up until she was about 13. They also had a dog that I cared for while I babysat and when they went on weekend getaways. I worked at a nursery school summer camp where I started as a counselor and overtime became a head counselor/teacher. The camp included children ages 2-5 years old. My responsibilities included, but weren't limited to: developing games, supervising children independently, conducting arts projects, leading group reading time, organizing snack time, etc. Working at the camp was an amazing experience and something I took very seriously and dear to my heart as I do with babysitting. I also taught a Jazz class with ages ranging from 5-10 years old. Watching the girls improve from September to the following May was an amazing experience for me and something I love to see in children: watching them grow. When I babysit, I don't like to just sit around and not interact; I really love engaging with the child and being inspired by them and hope that I inspire them as well! I love to go on walks, to the park, bowling and such activities (for the older kids) and so much more! I want to make sure that your child/children are having fun and being safe. I am extremely active and work out on a daily basis and am very interested in nutrition and fitness and believe in a very healthy, active lifestyle! Being a professional actor as well, I love the arts and believe any form of art is so important for kids as a form of self-expression and joy! I hope to hear from you soon! :)

Enthusiastic Babysitter — Brooklyn, NY
I have been babysitting children since I was 12 years old. However, being an older sibling to my brother and sister, was one of my first important responsibilities in the child caring field. During this time, I learned how to discipline children in a caring way. I brought the tools I learned there into my professional babysitting jobs. I have been babysitting for a little over 4 years now. I enjoy working with children they have such a contagious positive loving energy. I love being apart of their daily growth and watching them grow from babies to young functioning independent children. I have cared for children ages 1 years old to 12 years old. While taken care of toddlers I have changed diapers fed and bathe them. I also worked with the parents to help create healthy eating habits for the children. Taking part in building and putting together napping schedules. With the older children I have assisted in drop-offs and pick-ups to and from school. As well accompanying them to after-school activities and play dates. Working with older children I've noticed that building a friendships where they feel comfortable is very important and they come to me with any problems they may be dealing with. I am a very loving caring individual with an spunky personality. I love getting into arts and crafts anything that really allows me to be creative. I look froward to bringing my style of child development to your family.
