Anna C. - Seeking Work in Rockton

Caring for children has been a way of life for me since I was young. My mother ran a daycare out of our home from when I was 5 until I hit middle school. I watched and listened to her as she cared for and impacted the lives of the children around her. I began babysitting as soon as I was old enough and have continued to care for children throughout High school and College. I enjoy spending time with children and seeing the world through their eyes. It is such a thrill to watch them discovering new things and growing in their abilities. I have been a nanny for about 4 years, caring for children over the summers and full-time. I love reading to kids and exploring the outdoors with them, going for walks or bike rides, and playing at the park or pool, among other things. I, personally, enjoy hiking/camping, reading, playing with animals (especially dogs), and spending time with my family and friends.

Hi I’m Lexi, I am still currently in high school at Hononegah High School. This is my last year there as I will be graduating soon. I do get out every day at 1:25pm so I am available any time after that. I have never been a nanny before but I do work with kids every day. I work for the YMCA as an after care teacher at Whitman Post Elementary School. I work there 2-6 most days. I’m looking to get more hours and experience with kids. I have many little cousins, nephews and a niece that I have also watched. I’m very gentle with kids but also can be stern if they don’t act right. I can help with homework and make sure the house is clean before you get home. I’m very trustworthy and never am late.
