Hi my name is Jamie, I am 24 years old. I absolutely love kids. I started babysitting 12 years ago and have never looked back. Over the last 12 years I have babysat many kids aged 5 months to 12 years of age. The majority of my experience is with 1-3 kids at a time however I have babysat up to 6 kids at once. For my first nanny position, I worked as a nanny for a lovely family with 2 wonderful girls aged 12 months and 2. 5 years. In this position I was responsible for planning age appropriate activities, making all three meals (breakfest, lunch dinner, and snacks), as well as ensuring the girls stuck to their nap time routine. I also babysat our family friend's 4 month old twin boys. My next nanny position was in Guelph where I was responsible for the full time care of a 10 month old baby girl. I was responsible for her care from Monday to Friday (9-5:30) and was asked to continue to take her to her music lessons and play groups throughout the day. While nannying for this family, I also babysat a lovely 4 month old little boy in the evenings and on weekends. Next I nannied for a great couple in Kitchener where I was responsible for the full time care of their 20 day old newborn and her 5 year old brother. A typical day would be weekdays 11am until 8 or 9pm, and weekends from around 11- 4pm. I continued in this positon right up until accepting my current full time business job and was very sad to leave. Most recently I have been babysitting a 18 month old little girl for the last 7 months. I’m this position I either pick her up from daycare on my way home from work and have her until around 11pm, or I watch her in the morning from 4:15am until I drop her off at daycare on my way to work around 8:30am. While in university I was hired twice by the Waterloo Region District Schoolboard as a tutor in the classroom. In this position I work with students in grades 1 through 6 with reading, writing, math, and social skills. While in highschool, in addition to babysitting I was also a camp counselor at a multi-sport camp where the campers in my groups were aged 4 - 15 years of age. This was a great opportunity and taught me many fun activities and games to keep kids entertained and having fun. A little bit about me, I have graduated from Laurier University and am now working full time for a medical tech company. I definitely love working with kids so I am looking for babysitting opportunities in the evenings and on weekends. I love living an active lifestyle and have been playing sports my entire life. Soccer is my favorite sport by far and I have been playing rep for 11 years. In my spare time I love to get outside and enjoy nature as well as hangout with my friends and family.
Babysitting: 8 years of experience In my various babysitting jobs I have been responsible for children aged 5 months to 12 years of age. The majority of my experience is with 1-3 kids however I have babysat up to 6 kids at a time. In the past I have provided meals, supervised play time, as well as put the children to bed. Nanny: 6 months (Jan-June 2018) Nannied full time for a Kitchener family with a 5 year old son and a 20 day old newborn.

Nanny: 4 months (May- Sept 2016) Nannied for a family with two wonderful girls aged 12 months and 2. 5 years old. This position was full time during the summer months until I returned to school in the fall. This was an excellent experience as I was able to plan daily activities and outings for the girls. I was responsible for providing breakfast, lunch and dinner for the girls as my typical shift was from 6:15am - 6:45pm. In addition to meals I did some light housekeeping. Camp Counselor: 1 year I was a multi-sport camp counselor at a local camp for one summer. In this position I was responsible for a group of 10 kids with ages ranging from 4 to 7 or 7 to 12 years of age. In this position I was responsible for planning daily activities, supervision, and ensuring the safety of my campers. In addition while working at the camp I had the opportunity to get experience working with special needs children which added to my skill base.
