Mary M. - Seeking Work in Ridgefield

Hourly rate22.85 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I am a responsible and conscientious young woman with twelve years of experience caring for children of all ages, including newborns. Within that time I have worked as a “Live Out” nanny on both a full and part time basis. I am first aid and CPR trained and I am comfortable and confident in my ability to meet the needs of any child in my care. In my time as a nanny, I have taught growing children how to read, count, and write. As a nanny with backgrounds in childhood education, I also have experience providing both basic homework help and more subject-specific tutoring. I believe in being a very active and energetic caregiver. My goal is to make sure that all of the child’s needs are met while also making sure the time I spend is as enriching and engaging as possible. During the course of my caregiving career I’ve assisted new parents with day-to-day childcare duties and household chores and am also able to assist with special occasions. For example, I’ve attended parties to look after small groups of children for guests and helped parents with children’s parties. I have a love of animals and have often looked after the pets of my friends and family. As such I am perfectly comfortable and able to care for children with pets and, if needed, can assist with basic pet-care duties. I am available full time.
