I was a nanny for a family of four and two grandparents. I loved my job and the whole family loved me. I went many places with the baby and their oldest son. Sometimes I kept them while they went out or on vacations at my home but all of the other time was spent at their home. I cooked and I cleaned for them. That experience was great! My major is Early Childhood Education so I know a lot about children and I love them! I am also teacher qualified.
