Desiree’s Bio

My name is Desiree. I live in Thornton and I have 14 years of child care experience. I have a degree in early childhood education and have worked with children ranging from infants to 10-years-olds. I have volunteered in a daycare, worked in a home daycare, and worked as a private nanny for several families. My experience includes taking care of infants, toddlers, twins, older children, and children with special needs. I have helped children with everything from toilet training to homework to learning piano. With my nurturing and patient nature, I easily taught children how to use sign language. Bringing comfort and joy to children has also brought confidence and new ideas to those entrusted to my care. I am reliable, caring, trustworthy, patient and a loving caregiver. I am also CPR and First Aid Certified.

Desiree Labor served as a part-time (after school) nanny for my children for 2011-2012 school year. She cared for my two children ages 9 and 10. I highly recommend her for future employment. She was very dependable and I feel blessed to have her as a part of my children's lives. Desiree has a kind-hearted, patient and nurturing personality.

She went above and beyond her duties as a baby-sitter. Our 9 year old struggles with school and she kept him on track. She provided our 10 year old with fantastic care, because he struggled with Epilepsy. Desiree had her hands full with our two boys and handled it with great ease.

We always felt safe leaving our children with Desiree. She was very understanding, even when having to work overtime. She even transported our children to doctor's appointments if needed.

I believe Desiree would be a fantastic babysitter for you or your organization.

Great babysitter

Desiree is great with my kids, they have a lot of fun with her. She's patient and easygoing and keeps up well with my 4-year old's boundless energy. We plan on using her again!
