Hi! My names Josey and I’m a local here in Santa Cruz. I’m attending Cabrillo as an Early Childhood Education Major. In middle school and high school I did babysitting off and on for family friends. I did volunteer work with Cowells junior guards as a captain. The captains help the instructors with the junior guards (ages 5-12). Before I was able to work with the children I was certified in CPR and AED. My first job was as a lifeguard at Simpkins Family Swim Center for 2 years. I was certified in lifeguard training, first aid, CPR and AED. I taught swim lessons, all ages but mostly ages 2-8. Toddlers are so much fun! I also did child care and little guards. Little guards and swim lessons were really fun because I got to know the children. By the end of the sessions we would be laughing and playing Read more around together. I am currently working as an on call TA with Head Start. I’m sorry but I’m currently not available for any more positions.

Josey is outstanding! She took care of my 11 month old for the day, came prepared, asked the right questions, immediately connected with the baby, and handled naps and mealtime very capably. She's smart, thoughtful, and did nice little things like recommend places in the area (we are new to the area) and comment on the baby's mood and things when we did handoff. I am super excited to hire Josey again and would absolutely hire her as a nanny!
