Marissa F. - Seeking Work in Byron

Full-time hours

Every child care experience I've had I've enjoyed greatly! I still til this day keep in contact and occasionally watch my past childcare children. I've worked with kids from the ages of newborn to 12 years old. My first childcare experience was actually with 3 kids. Two girls and one little boy. My most recent was a two month old baby girl! I also house/dog sit for them and wash baby clothes, clean up around the house when they need the extra help since they travel often. As of right now I'm currently a live-in nanny (full-time) for two sweet girls at the ages of 6 and 2, although they won't be needing me as of feb. 2015. So I'm hoping to find another full time live-in/out nanny position as soon as possible :)
