Mary Kate’s Bio
Currently, I work for Arlington County as a Children's Program Facilitator part time. Along with that, and I'm also an aftercare nanny in the afternoons.
I have been nannying professionally since 2006. I have worked part time, full time, and on as needed basis such as date night orafternoon. I would love to find some families who would use me for date night or week nights.
I've worked every circuit you can think of: VBS, camp counselor as well as an Au Pair for a family in Ireland for six months. I worked for a babysitting agency in Memphis for 4 years, 1.5 years in Saint Louis and now here in Arlington (Metropolitan Nannies). I've had a Sitter City profile since 2007.
Sitter City has me on their on-demand sitter service called HelloChime. Out of 5 nannies, they interviewed; only 1 gets qualified and I am one of them. For more info on me + reviews + video, please see the link.
I have worked independently mainly as a word of mouth nanny. I have many families that use me on a regular basis when they need the extra assistance or simply want a date night.
Childcare is an ongoing learning experience because I am presented with the opportunity to interact with so many different types of families that are so diverse. Whether it is in culture, religious beliefs, or just the upbringing of their children, I get to see it all and I feel it educates me. I love learning and teaching children or even learning from children that I sit for.
I enjoy nannying all types of children aging from only a few days to teens. I enjoy working with special needs children; my eldest stepbrother has severe Cerebral Palsy, and I assisted in taking care of him while growing up, so I can relate and can understand the challenges of the day to day tasks it takes to ensure their well-being is taken care of properly.
A few of my qualifications are from the first part of my Bachelor's education was in Early Childhood Education emphasis for the first 2.5 years of my undergrad. I changed it to Non-Profit Mgmt a little bit later when I volunteered at St. Jude.
I love animals and have no problem being around them or assisting with them. I do not smoke nor do I have any allergies that prohibit me from work in all types of environments. I am current on my CPR/AED certs, and I have my own car which is good for running kids around to different activities.
Thanks for reading!
