I've been taking care of kids the last 2 years. I have an amazing experience with 2 boys (10 and 13) in Boston, witch I used to prepare breakfast and dinner for them, do the laundry and take and get them from school. We used to have a lot of fun together. Nowadays I'm taking care of a girl (6) and a boy (5), witch I used to do the same with the boys + give them showers, put them to bed, read books, do some arts and crafts. I love all of them so much and I want to have more amazing experiences like those. If you have any questions, I'm wiling to answer it.

I started babysitting when I was 13 years old and have work with many wonderful families over the years. I made the decision to become a nanny because I changed my major in school (to early childhood edu.) I am paying for my own schooling (I go on weekends and online) and LOVE working with kids- I have experience working with children with special needs as well as non special needs- please feel free to contact me with any other questions you might have!!
