Hello! I am currently looking for a full time nanny position, and I am looking to start soon. Since the age of 13, I began babysitting. Ever since then, childcare is primarily what I have done for work. From working at an in-home daycare center, to working as a nanny, and lots of babysitting in between. I have taken care of infants, toddlers, younger children, older children; basically all different age groups and needs. I love working with kids! My husband and I live in Slater, Iowa, and I am now looking for a wonderful family that I will blend into well, as their nanny. I am looking forward to connecting with a family and caring for their children and any other needs they may have. A few extra things about me: I enjoy cooking and keeping things organized. If you have any special errands or tidying for me to do, I am good at keeping the house in order. I also enjoy arts and crafts and being outdoors. Please feel free to contact me if interested. I would love to get to know you and your family. Thank you! :)
