2 yrs of experience

My name is Lisa, I'm 26 years old and I have 6 years of childcare experience. I'm looking to help a family out full-time starting 02/18. I've watched children as young as 9 months up to 12 years old. I'm comfortable with diapers and potty training, and willing to help out with that as much as I can. Cleaning up after the children, putting them to bed, or down for a nap is not a problem. I really love kids and kids seem to love me. I enjoy being active indoors and outdoors with them, and helping with homework is not a problem. I'm comfortable with pets and taking care of them in is no problem. I've been a nanny and I worked at an elementary school for two school years doing before and after school care. My present position as a nanny is for a 16-month-old and 2-year-old. I am looking forward to my next opportunity.

Though these seem like two subjects far from child care, I actually plan to run my own daycare center in the future. I started off as a nursery worker for infants to toddlers at my local church, later became a Sunday school teacher from Pre-schoolers to 1st grade. I later became the go-to babysitter for all the moms there until I found the perfect family who I later became a nanny for. I see myself as a big sister, who supports mom and dad. I try my best to help out not only with the children but with the families daily activities. I have traveled with the family I use to nanny for and I most definitely loved the family, they treated me as family rather than a worker. I am extremely flexible and excited to find a family who I can love and be a support.
