Cheryle K. - Seeking Work in Ocala

8.57 / hour

Hi! My name is Cheryle, I am a thirty-two year old female whom loves and adores kids, which is why I have chosen the profession of a Nanny. Currently I am working for xx, which is a service whom places Nanny's with families who are looking for loving, and caring people to help care for their children. I have experience dealing with children of various ages, ranging from five months to thirteen years of age. I have a good standing with xx, and many families have asked for me by name. I am looking for an occasional nanny job for I work for 4 families occasionally as well as working for College Nanny's and Tutors. I am trying to pick up some more hours without leaving any of the families I work for. I have grown very attached to the children and the children are attached to me. I would hate to leave them for it'll put a strain on the parents to find another nanny but it will also affect the children for they will have to get use to a new nanny all over again. Before I moved to North Carolina, I worked for a family in Arizona for eight years. It is my hope that I can branch out a bit more and take on more Nanny positions.

I come from a very large family. Growing up, I used to watch my younger cousins since I was an only child. Now I have a wonderful little girl just over two years old. She is growing up to have quite a neat personality. She is the reason for waking up in the morning and doing everything I can to make sure all her needs are met. If I could have a handful of children I would do it in a heartbeat!
