Hourly rate22.85 / hour

I have over 10 years of experience caring for children ranging from newborn to teens. I spent 3 years as a Preschool Teacher. My responsibilities inculded teaching children basic fundamental skills, potty training, and instroducing self-help skills. I was recently a nanny to 2 1/2 year old triplet girls, but due to a relocation I had to part ways with the family. I contributed a lot to the family and made it my duty to make the arrival home from work, for the parents, an easy tranisition. I did the laundry, vacuumed, loaded the dishwasher, and made sure the girls were fed and bathed. I am looking to become a part of another family and impart my love and knowledge into their lives.

Hello, My name is Ashley and I'm 20 years old. I am an Early Childhood Education major who loves children. I started nannying/babysitting when I was 16 for a family with two children who were 3 and 7. I was their full time nanny for a year until they moved. After that, I continued to babysit part time for a neighbor with one child (12 months), until my family relocated. Soon after moving, I became a full time nanny and kept my nanny position for two years. I've just come back England, where I was an Au Pair for 8 months. The children were 8 and 10. I regularly volunteered at their school and helped with homework and school projects. Au pairing was a life changing experience that I will never forget!
