Sloane K. - Seeking Work in Sidney

7.32 / hour

I've been an active babysitter for the past 5 years, experienced with kids aged from infant to early teens. I've also counseled for 3 years at a Music Camp for kids Pre-K to 4th grade. I've also counseled at a summer reading program (headed my own group in caring for kids, providing snacks and entertainment, and teaching them the joys of reading) and worked for two years at a "Homework Club" for 1st-6th grade. I offer my services as a babysitter or nanny (live in or live out), but I can also tutor in all core subjects for ages Pre-K to 9th grade, as well as basic spanish (4 years training), saxophone (7 years training) and piano (12 years training) skills. I also love arts and crafts and have been an artist for all my life. I love hiking and taking kids for picnics or for a swimming/outdoors excursion. I am currently renewing my CPR certification and I have taken basic first aid training according to the regulations of my high school. I always have activities, healthy snacks, and fun games ready. One more thing: ever get tired of watching those Disney movies over and over again? I was raised on that stuff, and I would gladly watch "Lion King" or "The Little Mermaid" as often as their little hearts desire, and even supply popcorn (provided of course, they finished their dinner!).
