Kendra C. - Seeking Work in Shelbyville

22.85 / hour

I just recently moved back to Indiana. I spent the last 6 years living in Maryland. Many of my friends in Maryland are military families. During times of deployments and other military assigned duties, I would help several of my friends by providing childcare, transportation, pet care, house work, etc. I do not have children of my own; however, I have always been the fun "Aunt Kendra" to many of my friends' children. I do not like to just sit kids in front of a television and let it entertain them. I like to interact with them and have fun with them. Exercise their minds! Besides, who doesn't like to color in coloring books or hurry to get "home" in a game of "Trouble?" :) Even though I'm the "Fun" Nanny, I also am very responsible, punctual, and dependable.

Since middle school, I have helped my parents take care of my younger sister. I have helped a few families through middle school babysit while they had date nights. In high school, I was a nanny for a family with three children during the day while their parents worked. I did lunch preparation, pick up from school, homework, playing, and got them ready for their evening. I also worked with an autistic child during the summer. I did tutoring, activities, meal preparation, cleaning, cooking.
