I have had 4 years with paid experience as a Nanny/Babysitter but I have been around children my whole life. I am a very loving person to any child and family. My ability to be attentive will make you feel safe while leaving me with your children. I am very loyal so you will be comfortable with me in your home. I would be open to any house work that needed to be done and to go on any errands you might need me to do. Simple tasks other than watching the children would include, running errands, cleaning the house, doing laundry, and making dinner or any other meals. I would be more than happy to give your children all of my attention and assist them with anything from just learning simple letters to doing homework with them. Your children would be in very good hands! I hope to be a good choice for you and a great choice for your children!
