Molly B. - Seeking Work in Gobles

17.14 / hour
Full-time hours

I love children and look forward to having my own someday, so I guess it would be accurate to say that caring for children is a part of my chosen life's work. I have a huge heart to nurture and help them grow in love. I believe that children should be raised in a loving home, where they are encouraged to be creative and express themselves through play, art, music and reading. I have years of volunteering in church basically all my life (nursery, 4 & 5, parents asking me to watch their kids). I also have 12+ years of babysitting. I have 6+ year experience as a nanny. I also have 6+ years of newborn care. 3 years of daycare experience. I have 3 years experience in a subbing in a public school. I have my associate's in Early Childhood degree. I've had the opportunity to also be able to work in an orphanage in Bolivia for three months. This orphanage was for babies aging from newborn to toddler. That experience forever changed my life and made me so much more aware of my passion for children.
