Recently moved to Highland and worked for many months as a wrangler at The Rocking Horse Ranch where I was able to use my horse skills and childcare skills to provide a great vacation experience. To allow myself more time to commit to my interests outside of work, I left Rocking Horse Ranch and am seeking a Childcare position where I can be part of the family and help out wherever needed. I am personable and outgoing and a person that people like being around, especially kids. My approach to childcare is to present a service that leaves the parents feeling confident that their children are safe AND having fun. I love to play, be active, dance and create art. I am patient and loving. If you would like to hear more how I can become part of your family by providing amazing care for your children and helping out Read more in other areas, please reach out and schedule a phone call. I have a detailed resume of past childcare experiences with ages 2 months to 13 years, along with references to share. Some examples from my resume: Caregiver for 3 month old twins Meir & Miriam, Brooklyn, NY April - June 2020 Part time immediate position providing care in children’s home from 10am-4pm, four times a week. Dressed babies, bottle feeding, nap time, tummy time, daily walks, music and play. Worked hard to keep babies on the same feeding and nap schedule. Diligently recorded feeding and nap times for a seamless transition of care when parents took over. Essential parents and so I was flexible to continue and end care until my replacement was found. Family Chef and Caregiver for 1.5 year old Penelope & 4 year old Jupiter, Los Angeles, CA Jan - Mar 2020 On hand babysitter. Worked 6 hours on Sundays to cook a week’s worth of dinners that family would reheat and serve. Provided a detailed menu and shopping list. Family did not have dietary restrictions but made sure food was child friendly and adult tasty. Caregiver for 6 year old River and 2 year old Wilder, Los Angeles, CA October 2019 - Mar 2020 Date night babysitter for Thursday evenings from 7pm - 11pm. Ensured a safe environment for River and Wilder and spend time with River before seeing him through his bedtime routine. Monitored Wilder for his diabetes and able to provide care if necessary. Available to mom by phone for check-in.

What an excellent sitter! Chaya watched our daughter for our date night and we couldn’t be happier. Her experience with kids shows from the moment she came over when introducing them. My daughter even cried when we got home and didn’t want her to leave!
