Marsha L. - Seeking Work in Winsted

22.85 / hour

I started caring for my friends' children in between the births of my first and second child. It's been more than twenty-five years now, and I still get my jobs by word-of-mouth based on my reputation. I prefer to stay with a family as their live-out caregiver and start with newborns; I continue until or after the children are in school. The Mom of the families I'm with at present are teachers, so I'm looking for a summer position.
