I am 21 years old and currently a junior at Saint Marys University of Minnesota. I have been working with children for about 9 years now, and 8 of those years I have had paid experience. I have a passion for helping young children learn and grow. When interacting with children, I seek to support their interests and needs, encourage their creativity, and explore their world. I believe that children need nurturing, consistency, and regular opportunities to explore new things. From babysitting family members to neighbors, my clientele has grown over the years and I have many reliable references to show for it. On top of sitting references, I have had the experience of working with all sorts of children at a children's party facility called Pump it Up. There, I was a party attendant and coordinator working very closely with the kids! Currently, I am looking for a full-time summer position. I am very flexible and can do on call jobs, too! I have nannied for the past 5 years during the summer months and loved every second of it! Sadly, the children whom I have nannied for regularly in the past are starting to outgrow childcare leaving me in search of another position. I feel I am a fun, energetic, young, outgoing and honest person who truly loves the joy of the job. I promise that I will not let you down. Please feel free to contact me, as I haven't been able to cover everything in this short post! I'd love the opportunity to learn more about your families particular needs and tell you a bit more about myself and qualifications. Please note that I have a resume and references available per request. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
