Full-time hours

I have lots of practice in babysitting neighbors' children and cousins. I volunteered at a private elementary school for an after-school science program and a summer daycare program. I also volunteered with a program, which focuses on reuniting siblings separated in the foster care system, to put on a carnival experience three years in a row. As a result of these experiences, I am very familiar with kids of all ages and feel very confident in my ability to create a safe, fun, responsible, and stimulating environment for children.

This next sentence may confuse you but all I ask for is to be given a chance. I have never been a nanny before and would like to start somewhere. I have a high school diploma and 1 year in college. Even though I have no experience, I would love to watch over kids and I personally think it would be easy for me. I am currently employed and looking for something new. I would always be available (full time).
