Frankford, DE Nannies

Kyra B. - Seeking Work in Frankford

14.28 / hour

I began working with children around the age of 8. Immediately I fell in love with the idea of working with children. As I got older I decided to look into becoming a nanny. I have worked with children of all ages. I myself come from a family of 10, where I am the oldest. Within in my own home I have various responsibilities. I have experience working with special needs children, children with behavioral issues, and have also had to watch triplets at one point in time. I believe that children have so much to offer and its the influence of the adults they come in contact with that will make or break them. So as a nanny I believe in interacting with the children, playing games, letting them be outside. Helping them learn and grow is key.
