Laura’s Bio

My name is Laura and I am 29 years old, a woman of faith, got married in June, and originally from New Jersey :) I have always loved children, hope to have many of my own but previously enjoyed caring for others. Although I have not been a babysitter for a few years, I have strong experience under my belt. I joined neighborhood nannies in Haddonfield, NJ back in 2006. The company introduced me to 3 families; one with 3 boys (8 year old twins and a 10 year old) who I watched for a summer, another were two young girls (ages 2 and 4) who I cared for on the weekends, and another were 3 children (8 year old twins and a 5 year old) who I ended up with for a year. Each experience was great and it was hard to leave the one family who I cared for over the year, each day after school. Overtime, I had decided to move to NY in 2008 to finish my Bachelors degree and had to say goodbye. Fortunately in 2009, I was introduced to a new family with two children; ages 5 months and one and a half years old. I cared for the children three days a week from 7am to 4pm; everything from bottles, feeding, naps, learning, and potty training. My academic schedule had unfortunately changed and I no longer was available during the week. I was replaced but continued to watch the children every so often on the weekends. Not long after I graduated and got into the business world, I felt like something was missing. I ended up volunteering for a year, two nights a week at a long-term care facility for children in Voorhees, NJ. I played with children, read to low response children, and became a 'bedtime buddy' to a young boy that stole my heart. The experience was so moving, I decided to go back to school to become a clinical social worker. During my education, the clinical hours involved experience with teens in case management and counseling young children. I will be seeking a full-time position once the Fall approaches but could extend my search if the family wanted a bit longer of a commitment, which is completely understandable. I'm available to start asap. I currently work 25 hours a week in the afternoon and evening. I would love to tell you more about my experience as a babysitter in the past, as a volunteer, and student. I'd be glad to answer any of your questions, provide references, and federal, criminal, and child abuse clearances. Hope to hear from you!
