Full-time hours

I have 27 years of child care experience being a babysitter, Assistant Preschool Teacher and a nanny. I have attended some college courses in Early Childhood Education and Social Work and continue my education by attending workshops and seminars. I have experience with children from multiple newborns to 14 years old. I like to stay active and busy interacting with kids instead of them sitting in front of the TV or electronics all day. I have spent most of my time as a nanny providing all aspects of child care such as preparing meals & snacks, preparing bottles, baby cereal and food, changing diapers, giving children medicine, potty training, making sure hair and teeth are brushed, clothes are changed, assisting in getting ready for school and on/off the bus. Assisting in homework and driving to and from schools and activities. I also provide light housekeeping such as unloading/loading dishwasher, sweeping floors, children's laundry, and cleaning up after the children. I take children on outings such as picnics and play in the park, spray parks, museums, bouncy places, the library, walks, petting zoo's, farms, etc. I am good at coming up with fun, creative arts & crafts, like to color and bake.
