Laurel’s Bio

My name is Laurel Cappellucci, I'm 19 years old, and am from Bountiful, Utah. I can start as soon as May 1st and will be available until September 5th. Either living in or out can work for me.

I am the middle of five children and my parents divorced when I was in 5th grade. My mother began working outside our home full-time. Beginning in Junior High and up until I left for college, I cared for my two younger brothers to help our family. I drove them to sport activities and to friends, made sure they were on top of homework, cooked dinner, and cleaned up the house. I took the opportunity to help my mother with our family very seriously.

I often babysat for the Johansen family and their 5 children. Occasionally I would water their plants and feed their pets while they were out of town as well. Since I had my own car, I was able to help out in ways other than just child care. During the school year, I picked their daughter up from school and drove her to her horse riding lessons. Occasionally I was responsible for driving the other children to and from various obligations as needed. I also worked with their one of their sons specifically on his homework and reading skills twice a week for several months.

During the last two summers I worked about 40 hours a week during the summer as a nanny for the Jones family and their children, ages 4 and 6. I made breakfast and lunch with the kids each day and the rest of the day consisted of a variety of activities. We often went on walks to the park, swimming, playing games, and finding crafts to make together. I learned the importance of compromising and spending time with each child because they will have different interests. They loved playing with the neighbors both outside and inside, and we were fortunate enough to have their cousins living close by which allowed us to do fun things with them as well. We made it a point a few times a week work on some “homework” to maintain their academic skills and get them ready for the next school year. We worked on reading, spelling, and writing. I believe it is important to help the children learn how to be responsible, so each day the kids would help pick up the toys, games, do dishes, and anything else that needed to be done to learn dependability and be able to gain the confidence that comes from knowing they can contribute to a happy home environment.

Thank you for your consideration!
