Meredith W. - Seeking Work in Harrington

2 yrs of experience

Hello! What makes me a great Nanny? I am the Mommy of 3 beautiful children ages 5 (almost 6), 3 and 7 months old🙂 I love caring for, playing and being creative with and teaching children of all ages in their own stages of life! Their joy brings me joy☺️

I have an extremely reliable van (2015 Honda Odyssey) with 8 seats (3 more seats available) and was CPR certified in years past, though it is no longer active but if needed, I would do it again. Safety first in all things and then enjoying life with toys, crafts, an age-appropriate movie here and there and fun all around!

I am looking for a reliable family who understands that I am a Mother. This would not change anything for the family that hires me other than them knowing I would be bringing my children to your home or your children are more than welcome to come to my non-smoking, pet-friendly home, as my Husband and I own a safe, 4-bedroom home in Harrington. We are well kept folks and my Husband works full-time as the Music Pastor at a local Church.

I am thrilled to meet you and your family soon!

Respectfully,
Meredith🙂
