Full-time hours

I've worked with children for a very long time. Either being paid for it or just volunteer work. During the four years that I was in High School at Medical Professions and Teacher Preparations Academy the upperclassmen like myself would go down to the Pre-K and teach to them, play games, prepared snack and lunch and much more. When my youngest sister was born and my eldest sister was not there and when my mother would work. I would stay home and take care of her. The same with my eldest sisters two kids when they were born. Along with friends of the families and cousins infants when they were born. I worked as a Camp counselor for two years with the ages 6-9. With that I got my CPR/First-Aid/AED and Epi-Pen certifications. I worked with all kinds of kids and even some with disabilities and several with food allergies. Even now as my niece and nephew grow I watch them and provide for them when it's needed.

I am a 25-year-old college graduate looking for a nanny position. I have experience with multiple children at a time. I worked at Mother Goose in South Windsor for 4 years and have experience with ages 6 weeks - 6years as well as school age children. I spent the majority of the time with 2 and 3-year-olds but I do have experience with little babies as well as preschoolers. I have also had the pleasure of being a nanny for 2 wonderful families over the past 2 years. I absolutely love children and one of my favorite things to do with them is art projects. I love to watch them grow, learn, and to be a part of the process. I have a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from Goodwin College. I would really appreciate the opportunity to be part of someone's family.

Fun loving & caring. I love kids so much! How their little brains are like sponges and ready to learn is the best thing! I’ve been babysitting kids since I was a young girl and took CPR and babysitting courses. With the job I have now I only work weekends so I am completely free during the week! I’d love the opportunities to be a nanny! If you have any questions feel free to ask!
