20.00 / hour
Full-time hours

I have been caring for children for over a decade. With experience with my younger siblings, volunteering in church nurseries, working in two preschools and a daycare, serving as a youth ministry coordinator, and caring for my own child, I have years of experience that I can offer your child(ren)! I want to provide care for your children that I would give my own child. I love to play games, read stories, play outside, and go to the park with kids! Working with children in a Christian setting has given me the opportunity to help them grow spiritually as well as physically/emotionally. For over a decade, I have been loving children and caring for them, always trying to bring joy to their hearts and a smile to their faces.
