Morgan H. - Seeking Work in Plantsville

14.28 / hour
Full-time hours

I am the oldest of all my siblings and cousins, which has instinctively made me a nurturing care giver. I have done many different babysitting jobs throughout the years, and also have a 3-year-old sister who I watched quite frequently until my parents moved to Georgia this past summer. I am lots of fun, and I will be continuing my education online so I am available any time for your little one. I'm an expert with legos and dollhouses and dancing to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and I also build a mean fort, so there will never be a lack of fun :). As well, I am currently studying graphic design, so arts and crafts time is always a blast! As far as meal time and bed time, I am familiar with both, and am very proficient with a stove, microwave, etc. I also have a car, and can provide transportation if needed. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any further questions, I look forward to hearing from you!
