I am an 18 yr old nanny, grew up in henderson, but am currently living in the southwest. I graduated from basic high school last year with an advanced diploma, and i plan on going to school next semester to become a teacher. I have been a nanny for the last 5 months and i love it. I like having tasks to do during the day, and having the responsibility of watching over another. I cant wait to have a family (but the first step would be my boyfriend coming home
from iraq). I live off of blue diamond and durango.... my parents live in henderson (so id babysit anywhere between there). The benefits of having a young sitter.... i can play with your kids, i am a late-bird (stay out late without feeling guilty!), and your kids will actually WANT me to come again.
I have been babysitting kids since i was about 12. It started with kids on the street and grew from there. i am currently a live-in nanny for a 6 month old girl that Ive watched since 2 months. I also have experiance watching older ages too. My favorite age is probably 3 or 4 (they're so entertaining).
i am very responsible when it comes to taking care of others. I tend to take care of others before myself (i guess thats a mom trait). I can bring over activities too if you'd ask....i have recipes to make play-dough, we could bake and decorate a cake... or artsy things so the kids can make a picture. (ofcourse no messes will be left behind)
WHEN IM AVALIABLE:
i work weekdays til 5:30pm. So im avaliable to babysit evenings (6 and later), or on the weekends (anytime). I ask that we plan ahead by a week or atleast acouple days, so that i can guarentee i am free to babysit. Also, parents canceling the night of leaves me without a babysitting job for the night... so i ask you cancel atleast a day before. OFCOURSE things happen, everyone has to cancel sometime, but hopefully not too often ;)
The amount an hour depends on how many kids, how often (if you want a babysitter
acouple times a week), or how far you live from me. The best thing to do is to offer how much you'd like to pay and we can go from there. Im not babysitting just for the money, so im not going to overcharge you. I babysit to help pass time, to get out of my house, to help pay for bills, and for the enjoyment of being around kids.
OTHER THINGS I CAN DO FOR YOU:
1) I have my own transportation... so if you ever need a ride for your child to go to a birthday party, pick up from somewhere to be taken home, or if you'd like them to get out of the house ( i can take them to the movies, the park, mcdonalds...) As long as its during my time im avaliable, id love to do that for you.
2) Also, id be willing to clean up a bit for you. If you have dirty dishes out, the kid's rooms are messy, or maybe the laundry needs to be done... i can do all of that while im babysitting, and the extra work can be added onto the amount you owe me for babysiting. Just let me know if you want something done and id be happy to.
3) i can also help with homework. alil tutoring is always good. I've helped my brother growing up, and ive tutored before too.
*** Well, thats about it. i hope you find the right babysitter. Every kid deserves to be put into good hands while their parents are away. and OFCOURSE every parent deserves to get away too! If you have any questions, or would like to meet... just email me! thanks!***
