I am a 51 year old mom of a 14 year old boy with over 35+ years of experience. I have taught in many preschools as a head teacher, as a Preschool paraprofessional in a parochial School, and as a nanny locally and in London, England! I studied Early Childhood Education in college so I feel I have that professional training in the ECE field that can help me care for and tend to children age appropriately in any situation. I feel I would make a great nanny because of my professional training and background, as well as being a mom, I have the nurturing and caring that is needed when working with young children. I am also a community theater actress, as well as a director and teacher of Children’s Theater, so I love to incorporate my love of the Arts with the children I ate for!

Hi my name is Kiera. I am 17 the oldest child of three in my family so I have grown up learning how to take care of kids. Although I am still finishing high school I love to help out families for a weekend or after school. I am friendly and kind and caring. I have experience with care taking in the past with helping out families in my neighborhood and they keep saying that the kids have had a great time and would love to have me again. I am certified with CPR. I have taken care of children from ages 0 - 14 and have taken on 3 kids at a time. I think the best part about babysitting is connecting with the families not just the kids. I am comfortable with any job after school hours and also on weekends. I also love pets so I can do any pet care job as well. It doesn't matter what animal from fish to monkey I'm good.
