Linda M. - Seeking Work in Hamden

Hourly rate20.00 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I have worked as a nanny and sitter for more than 20 years. I am fun-loving and energetic and I genuinely enjoy caring for children. I’m also reliable, hard-working, and trustworthy, with a strong work ethic and a sharp eye for detail and organization. I’m seeking a full-time child care position (with optional light housekeeping) in a single household with one to four children. I worked as an assistant aide at a Daycare Center in New Haven, CT for a year, but most of my experience has been in private homes. I have cared for single infants, twins, and up to four children of various ages at a time. Most recently I spent 8 years keeping house and caring for the two children of a busy professional couple, and for 6 years I served as housekeeper and nanny for a single mother with two children. My duties included chauffeuring the children and running errands as well as entertaining the children and cooking. In all of my work I am dedicated to meeting the specific needs of every family I assist. I’m happy to add tasks that don’t fall strictly within the definition of child care or housekeeping if it will help you manage your time and your days better. In the event of an emergency I am quick on my feet, and will take the necessary actions that are required by the family.
