Kathryn G. - Seeking Work in Canton

14.28 / hour

I have been a mother's helper since I was 11 and babysitting on my own since I was 14. In high school I took a babysitting course as well as a CPR course (which I plan on renewing this year). I have worked at a Children's Museum in Naperville Illinois for 2 years where I worked hands on with kids ranging from ages 2 to 12. I come from a fairly large family with many little ones. I being one of the oldest of the cousins, would be left in charge with them while the parents and other family members would do whatever it was that they had to do at the time.

I am a single mother of two very successful, grown children. Not one problem, not even a speeding ticket. My daughter has been married for two years and works at the Hartford as a 401k specialist. My son, age 25 has his own business in the automotive industry. I put both of them through college (on my own) by working two jobs. I love children, especially infants and pre-teens. I am holding my breath to become a grandmother - in the meantime, I am looking for a family to help with caregiving, light housework, shopping and meal preparations. I have an excellent driving record, I am in excellent health and have a great deal of energy. I have lived in this area all my life and know my way around the state of Ct.

I have babysat for children from infant to pre-teen and love taking care of them. I believe taking care of children, should not only include safety and protection, but should also be fun and enjoyable for the children. I love to play games, sports, do arts and crafts, prepare delicious snacks, etc.

I have worked primarily as a babysitter since I was 12, even at the age of 29 I am eager to babysit and care for children. I have spent the majority of my time caring for children under the age of 6. I volunteered my time the last couple of years coaching soccer in my area for children 8-10 so I feel comfortable with that age group as well. Though my exposure has been primarily in the "babysitting" rhelm, I am confident that I would be an excellent full-time nanny.
