Experienced Babysitter

(8)
Hello! My name is Melanie, I am a recent college graduate with a degree in psychology and a minor in art history. I have been babysitting for close to 10 years, and have experience with children 1-month-old to 17 years old. During my summers at home, I was always in the top 1% of all caregivers on Care. com. I provided care for over 30 families and have had nothing but positive feedback! I love kids, doing arts and crafts, playing sports and I'm great with pets. I'm patient, caring, dependable, punctual, responsible, and FUN! I also know some American Sign Language and have volunteered in elementary school classrooms so I am ready to assist with at home instruction! I was taught to drive by retired police officers at the I Drive Smart academy and have a spotless driving record. Not only am I CPR certified, I also have full EMT training. I am taking the pandemic VERY seriously, quarantining and social distancing with an N95 mask when I must go out. I hope to speak to you soon!

It was clear in interviewing Melanie for a nanny position for our 3 year-old pod that she brings her delightful, cheerful, and creative energy to leading children through age-appropriate activities and caring for them. She shared multiple examples of planning activities and bringing new experiences to the children she's cared for. I would absolutely reach out to Melanie for child care needs in the future.

Caregiver (Experienced In Daycare, Nannying, And Early Childhood Education)

Updated June 2020: Looking to work with families out of my own home during the 20-21 school year/pandemic to offer additional educational help, and comfort. MUST be well socially distanced as we have at risk family members. Before moving to Arlington with my husband and our two children (Now 4&7) with the military, I worked full/part-time and occasionally for numerous families in our previous hometowns. I am CPR/First Aid/AED certified. August 2015 I received my bachelors in Early Childhood Education. I love children, and I find it important that they are able to constantly learn and play. I love crafts, outside time, sports, reading to children and just positively effecting their lives. Some of my most important attributes are patience, trust, kindness, persistence, creativity, eagerness to help others learn through teaching, having fun and keeping it all together! I have a variety of references that I would be glad to share with you. I hope to meet you soon!

Stephanie is fantastic - the proverbial diamond in the rough. She is educated, super positive, compassionate, and above all, adores the children that are in her care. Stephanie looked after our 5 year old triplets over the past year and a half and it was reassuring finding someone we could trust to take excellent care of our children or when we needed a "date night." She possesses the patience of a saint and just has a passion for connecting with children on an emotional and personal level. She is very creative, full of ideas when it comes to activities and was reliable. I could always count on Stephanie, and each and every time she looked after our children, I knew they would be in good hands - and that is not easy with multiples. I highly recommend Stephanie for any family.

3623 Malibu Circle, Falls Church, VA

Starting at $12/hr

According to the United Nations publication on the Inequities in Early Childhood Development, the first 1,000 days of a child's life is the most important part of intellectual development. During this stage, a child absorbs information like a sponge. Experiences are stored in the brain to form a long-term memory that will be embedded in their personality. I treasure this information based on my personal experience. A cousin of mine when she was over a year old, did not say a word and barely responded to any form of communication. I noticed that her facial expression changed whenever she heard music. I sang to her everyday before she went to sleep. One day, as my aunt was singing the song I sing to her, she started singing. The rest is history.

This is a home day care limited to only 5 children. I focus on developing a child's sense perception by letting the child experience what he/she is learning. In this way a child not only learns faster but remembers effectively. I have tried this method with my other cousins as well and it was highly effective. They have grown to be academically outstanding. I have also volunteered in remote areas to prove my method and it has not failed me once. Experience is the best teacher indeed BUT sensory perception plays a big role in early childhood development. It is the bridge that develops a child's brain, hence, should be nourished. I assure you that your child will reach his/her highest potential with my guidance.

I encourage reading, playing, listening to music (melodic genres), constant communication (speaking to a child even if he/she is not capable of responding through speech yet), and story telling (voice inflection, facial reactions, body language, correlation of abstract and non-abstract objects, empathy, and self-awareness).

About Me:

I have a degree in Philosophy and a Master's in International Relations. I believe in one thing when it comes to children: Aside from genetic factors, a child is molded by the environment.
