< 1 yr of experience

Hi! My name is Allison Sugar and I am 20 years old, and currently finishing up my sophomore year at Franklin Pierce University, in New Hampshire. I am a student athlete, and am a member of the Women's Ice Hockey team. I am majoring in Psychology and minoring in criminal justice and I hope to work with children once graduated. I'm looking for a mother's helper job opportunity for the 2018 summer. I love kids and enjoy being around them, I am the third of four kids so I have always been around a variety of age ranges. I am pretty flexible and open once I get out from school in early May. I would love to work as a day nanny over the summer, whether that be just a few days a week or a 5 days a week kind of deal! But preferably I am looking for a more frequent and often opening. I currently live in Canton, CT but am willing to commute to other times within reason. I have lived in CT since I was in second grade, having also lived in PA and NH. I grew up in a very active family, with my parens and 3 siblings, and two dogs. I graduated high school from Berkshire School, a boarding school in Massachusetts.
I am comfortable doing play date supervision, afterschool care, and swimming supervision, or just watching the children during the day! I am comfortable working with sick children. I first started off as a lifeguard for two summers, during those two summers and then last summer I worked both day and overnight camps in Avon, as well as in New Hampshire and Vermont.
