Outdoor Educator And Child Development Professional, Looking For A New Family To Work For!

Hello! My name is Lynne, I really enjoy working with children and and look forward to meeting the new family I'll be nannying for! One of my greatest passions is child development, I believe in providing an environment where children are free to explore and learn about the world around them in a developmentally appropriate way. I can provide your children with a balanced day that includes plenty of time for art, music, outdoor play, and when appropriate I encourage children to get involved with preparing their own healthy meals. My relevant qualifications are: Associate's degree in Early Childhood Development, CPR, General First Aid, Wilderness First Aid, Food Handler's Card I have experience working with children from birth to age 6, and last year was the lead teacher at an outdoor classroom. Currently, I'm attending night school for my Bachelor's and teacher certification, and have a son in kindergarten. Look forward to hearing for you! -Lynne

Lynne is my all time favorite babysitter. Her knowledge and background in childhood development is obvious in the way she interacts with the kids. They call her Teacher Lynne because she is always looking for ways to teach them about all things - things outside in nature, things in the kitchen, art work projects, etc.! The kids love her! And I enjoy coming home and seeing the joy and excitement in her as she tells me all about what they did while I was gone. She even takes notes throughout the day so she doesn't forget to tell me things that happened. And the house is always nicely cleaned up, too. She gets the kids to clean up! I'd highly recommend her and will be using her again.

Amazing Grandma Will Care For Your Family Like My Own

Avg response < 12 hrs
I am a 62-year-old mother and a grandma. I am on Social Security and I wish to help care for your children to supplement my income. I am a trustworthy, honest, considerate, loving and reliable woman. I started babysitting a family of four when I was 12-years-old and I am still in contact with that family. I babysat my grandchildren from birth until school-age so their parents could work. My daughter is extremely protective and would only allow me to watch her children. I love being a grandma and just recently moved back to WA State where I could spend more time with my family and grandchildren. I would be happy to meet with you at your convenience. I am available for Full Time or Part Time depending on your needs. ***NOTE I HAVE A COPY OF MY CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK ! NO NEED TO PAY FOR ONE ! DATED 12/28/2018 *I'll do fulltime, parttime, or occasional nanny/ babysitter jobs.

I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you for taking such amazing care of my precious little guy J. while i was hunting .. You've been my godsend over the years from babysitting my unruly son... to bailing me out with"trying" times over the years! You have never let me down... you are defiantly my first choice to care for my grandson, the most kindhearted, loving and patient person I think i will meet in a lifetime ...a real guardian angel! Since day one, Ive committed to taking care of him ... my river trips, racing, snowmobile excursions etc... basically all my activities have all been put on hold ... (but well worth it I love him so much) That taking a month long trip to MT... I thought would be out of the question!, heck I didn't want J. to feel abandoned by his Grandma or be stuck in a daycare that I've heard horror story's about I was freaking out I almost didn't go! I am grateful to you for watching my "second" generation and making me feel like it was "ok" for me to leave

Caring Nanny Who Loves Children

Avg response < 23 hrs
Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile! While I may have many duties, first and foremost, is making sure my kids are in a fun and safe environment. Music is a huge passion of mine, I love to dance, sing, and I can play a few musical instruments. Music and Art festivals are so much fun for me, so I try to attend a few throughout the year. I love listening to music, cooking, being outside, traveling, learning, and exploring new places with friends! While I don't do a ton of cooking at my current job, I do most of the cooking for my husband and I, and try to eat clean and healthy. I believe that it is important to be a good role model for the kids, in all aspects of life. I have a cat named Taco and have love animals! I try to be a well-rounded individual, so I am always trying new things and looking for new places to go. I am creative, open-minded, and can follow instructions well. Thanks again, please check out my reviews, and I hope to hear from you soon!

Chelsie has been watching our two children for the last three years, and has become family to us. She is SO MUCH MORE than a nanny! Chelsie is an educator, a house manager, a friend, a confidante, and an amazing person. Over three years, she's been unbelievably reliable, on-time, and an amazing communicator. Chelsie came to work every day with ideas and plans of what to do, but was also flexible to our desires when we wanted to see something different. She plays, teaches and guides the children to make thoughtful decisions and choices. She takes on household projects without us even asking (um, hello, how many other childcare providers go through your kids clothes to pull out things they've outgrown, and tell you when you need bigger sizes, etc.??). She gets on the floor to play, sings songs, gets silly, teaches age appropriate materials, and has helped mold our children into polite and respectful little humans. Anyone would be LUCKY to lock in this girl!

I am the proud Mom of 3 grown boys. I have lived in Covington for 30 years. I volunteered in the classrooms and have my Para-educator license. I am pet friendly. I have a clean background check and driving record. I am CPR/First Aid certified. I love watching children of all ages! I feel it is important to be involved with the children and participate in their activities and interests. I like to bring my own fun ideas, too. I believe in nurturing children, playing with toys, reading, playing games and anything else that makes them happy and content. My highest priority is keeping your children safe and secure. I am extremely reliable, caring, trustworthy and outgoing. Also, I am available for families seeking childcare on weekends and evenings for date nights.. Thank you for your consideration!

We hired Julie to watch our 2.5 year old son on a regular basis for half days. From the moment we met her we knew she would be a great fit for our son and we haven't been disappointed. She has a calm and patient demeanor with boundary setting approach that works well for any age. Julie understands our son's need to be physically active outside our home and even researched age appropriate activities in the community to engage his curious nature. Julie is respectful and mindful of our family routine and rules. We are very happy with Julie and hope to keep her forever! (or at least until he goes to school!)
