Years of Childcare Experience: 10
I was born and raised in Tahoe, and find myself always returning. I enjoy the many outdoor activities living here provides including skiing, mountain bike riding and hiking. I consider myself very outdoorsy, and think it's important to take advantage of this beautiful area. I am also a creative person, so art (more specifically painting) have been a great outlet and passion. This led me to attend Sonoma State University as an Art major, with a Human Development minor. As a childcare provider, I enjoy sharing my love of the outdoors and creativity/art with kids. I have over ten years of experience including babysitting, pre-school teaching and most recently an au pair for a 6 month old baby boy who is now 3. I think it's important to provide children with a fun, fulfilling and enriched environment. I am an enthusiastic and responsible person and look forward to meeting you and

My name is Chloe and I absolutely love caring for children! My husband and I recently moved down from my hometown Portland, Oregon to our new home in Carson City, Nevada! After growing up in an in-home daycare setting where I began working with children, I then became a private nanny to some wonderful families. For the last year I have had the pleasure of working for this outstanding company Sierra Sitters, where I am able to work with many great families! I have a total of 13 years of experience, with ages ranging from newborn-10 years old. I enjoy playing outside, arts and crafts, reading and creative play. I believe the children should have a memorable experience while visiting the Lake Tahoe area, and I will help make that experience unforgettable! I look forward to meeting you and your little ones during your stay in the beautiful Sierras!

I am a compassionate, loving, go with the flow woman who adores children, yet can be firm at times if required. I have two children of my own ages 11 and 13, and seem to attract the angel eyes of little kids. I enjoy bringing my love of art, dance, outdoors, healthy foods, Steiner style learning and exploration to children. Interactive choices and empowering others to be confident in their own freewill while still being respectful and honoring of those around them is key.

My name is Julie Cooley-Rieders and the Tahoe Truckee area has been my hhome for all my adult life. Taking care of children has been my ppassionn. Allowing children to grow, explore and learn is a rewarding experience that keeps me excited as I continue caring for children of all ages.
For many years I owned a Family Daycare business in my Truckee, Ca home. This created an opportunity for me to spend time with my own children. Learning through exploration, art, reading, nature, and outdoor observations offers children a rich experience. Nurturing each child’s interests helps them become strong solid people who respect themselves.
Working as a Nanny for Sara at Sierra Sitters is a wonderful experience, providing opportunities to meet many families and children of all ages. I am honored to take care of the children I meet, and have a positive impact on their lives. The variety of families that request Nanny Services continues to make each day I work an interesting and fun experience.

About Me: My passion for being around children began when I worked as a counselor at the world renowned Santa Barbara Zoo. As a counselor I was responsible for creating and implementing daily agendas for up to 20 children. I worked as a mentor, leader and personal guide for over 150 children throughout the summer. I also implemented and taught education and arts and crafts. Bonding and mentoring with the children led me to nanny positions at the end of summer with a few families of young boys and girls. I carpooled them to and from the zoo for many weeks. Also daily planned play dates and "day adventures" where we traveled to the beach, amusement parks, community parks and pools, etc.
My excellent work and dedication to the Zoo led me to my next position. The Advisor of Teen Volunteers. Where I direct and managed more than 50 teen volunteers daily, trained more than 250 teen volunteers in safety and leadership, coordinated overnight events for 50 teen volunteers, as well as work as a mentor, director and counselor for the approximate 250 teenagers. I absolutely loved managing, working and even more mentoring the teen volunteers for my last two summers.
My passion for children led me into an internship with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Butte County. Where I assisted the BBBS event coordinator in marketing, PR and event planning. Communicated with sponsors, donors and volunteers and participated in interviewing, meetings and company events. My love and compassion for children is what drove me behind my hard work as the Event Coordinator Assistant Intern.
I moved to Tahoe City in November 2010 and got a job at the Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe where I was a Kinder Care Assistant. I cared for up to 50 kindergartners everyday. I taught, played and challenged there minds and bodies. I fell in love with Tahoe and the Kinders' and am hoping to use my experience with children in the Tahoe area.
After a few months at the Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe I got a promotion to Teen Manager. I manage the Teen Center and about 40 teenagers a day. I plan programs, daily activities, field trips and fundraisers. I teach, mentor and lead teens daily with hopes to change there lives.

Growing up, I knew I wanted to work with children. In high school, I was accepted to be part of a teaching academy program. Throughout my four years I was able to team teach at a variety of elementary schools to kids from kinder-5th grade. My first job out of high school I worked as an assistant at a childcare facility. I began my college education in 2002 at San Jose State majoring in elementary education. In 2003, I made the move, along with my family to the Reno area where I lived for six years. There I attended UNR and TMCC majoring in Child Development. I have earned my Certificate in Child Development. While living in Reno I worked as a nanny, a kindergarten teacher assistant, as well an assistant and lead teacher at several childcare centers. In 2008-2011, I worked at KinderCare as the lead teacher for the two year olds. I am currently 31 years old and living in Truckee, CA. I work as a nanny for Sierra Sitters and at a shelter in Reno for children who are in the process of being fostered or adopted. I have experience working with all ages, infant to teen.
Working with kids for so many years, I have come to understand that children come into the world with a blank slate. The experiences, environment, adults, as well as surroundings are what shape them into who they become. I feel our responsibility as parents and teachers is to provide children with the best possible education, knowledge, and choices so they are able to grow to their maximum potential. I believe that children should be given the ability to become independent individuals by setting limits with positive discipline, praise, and encouragement. I enjoy being surrounded by children because of their imagination, innocence, and creativity.
I am a creative person who enjoys making crafty items for family and friends. I love listening to music of all different genres, reading non-fiction books, dancing, and meeting people of all different cultures. Learning is a lifelong passion for me enjoying the many different cultures around the world.
