Lauren C. - Seeking Work in Guilford

17.14 / hour

I have worked as a full-time nanny, currently work part time as a nanny. Previously my neighborhood and family friend's babysitter, now I have a full clientele which provides for great references. I have been providing cheerful childcare, housekeeping, and tutoring in addition to any errands or chores families may need accomplished. I'm looking to meet families who need help during the day and after school. evenings and overnights are fine too. Previously, I have watched all ages of children and enjoyed every minute of it. I still visit and email with them, even though some are now driving! Friends, bosses, and children would describe me as energetic, entertaining, a bookworm, and funny. They say I always find the postive side to every situation. I enjoy literature myself, but I strongly value reading with the children I care for (since birth!) As you may have seen through my profile, I am also a reading tutor. Reading is very important to me and I insist on making it a priority in every child's life! I also love to play sports and do outdoor activities with kids. Cooking, baking, hiking, crafting, building, learning and playing...it's all fun for me! Infant care is a strength of mine, as babies feel calm in my arms. I am familiar with breastfeeding and formula feeding, as well as the baby food stage. Infants are carried and held whenever they are not busy at play.
