I have been a live-out nanny in the past as well as have worked in a daycare/preschool. I was there for about three years. I am also the oldest of five children and also helped my friend to raise my godson when he was born. I have been a live out nanny for over 12 years. I was a live-out nanny for a wonderful family of three girls. I was there for over three years. I then went to a family with three boys and was with them for a year. From there I went to another family as a temp and ended up staying a year with them also. I then went to another family with two girls who I grew really close with but unfortunately they needed to relocate for work and my services were no longer needed. I had been with them for 2 years. I then found a wonderful family with boy/girl twins that I have been with for about 4yrs now but both children have some medical issues and need more specialized care and someone who is more experienced with treating and handling autism and some severe learning issues. So I am again looking for somehing long term and permanent.
