Melanie’s Bio

Hi, I am a CPR-certified nursing student looking for a part time (or one time) babysitting job.  I have my bachelors degree from Providence College, and am currently at UMass Medical School for a nurse/nurse practitioner direct entry program.  I love children, and have been babysitting children of all ages for around 15 years now.  I also have 11 years of experience teaching children of all ages dance and gymnastics.  I've taught up to a group of 6 3-year old children by myself before (and very large groups of older children), so I can handle large families well.

I have additional experience with child and infant care through volunteering at Hasbro Children's Hospital and Women & Infants Hospital in the playrooms and nursery, which gave me substantial experience caring for newborns.  Additionally, I worked in a pediatric psychology office for 3 years with kids of varying mental and physical disabilities, so I have experience engaging and working with a variety of developmental levels and abilities (including autism spectrum, ADHD, bipolar, patients with cancer, epilepsy, etc, wheelchair bound, and so forth).

References, and a background check, if you require one, are available upon request.  I'm extremely dependable, and would look forward to getting to know you and your kids!
