I have had quite a bit of experience as a nanny with varying ages. I have tons of experience with kids in general. I’ve been a lead teacher in an infant room and a two year old at a daycare. Growing up I helped out my mom with her in-home daycare that she ran for 16 years and have been babysitting since I was 11. I love doing crafts, learning activities, cooking, cleaning, playing outside and reading. I adore getting to work with kids and have found it to be my passion in life. There is nothing better than watching children grow and learn. :)

I'm a college student living in Ankeny for the summer! I'm transferring to Iowa State in the fall and am planning on majoring in early childhood education. I've had experience babysitting for different ages all throughout high school. In high school, I had experience working with preschool and kindergarten classrooms and help them learn in lessons I would teach them. I'm CPR certified and have some experience with children with disabilities. My schedule this summer is open so my availability is very flexible.
