Full-time hours

I have 32 years of babysitting, and nanny experience, as I started babysitting at 11, and I became a live-in nanny at 16. I have also taught all levels of classes(newborn-5 years old) on top of leading/teaching Birthday parties for all age groups. I have been both a day, and a night nanny/ baby nurse for newborn twins, and triplets, as well as working for families with older multiples too. I am considered a newborn care specialist due to my extensive experience taking care of newborns, but I have taken care of all ages of children from newborn, starting at a week old, up to the early teenage years. I have also been a vacation nanny, and a travel nanny, traveling with the families that I've worked for, both domestically, and internationally. I feel very fortunate to have taken care of some terrific children, and to have worked for some wonderful famulies, who have treated me like part of their family.
