Kassi  G. - Seeking Work in Washington

10.00 / hour
Full-time hours
11 yrs of experience

I have been a nanny for ten years and have been with my current family for 8 of those years. I have cared for infants up to age 10. I try to encourage learning through play.

I have some limited experience with children with special needs. During college I babysat for a girl with Prader willi syndrome and my own little girl was born with one leg. She is now 19 months and has always come to work with me. This has always worked well for both me and the family I care for as I have always treated the children in my care as my own.

The family I am currently working for sent their youngest child to kindergarten last year but I continued watching them after school. I am now looking to be full time once more.
