Full-time hours

Hi! My name's Ashleigh. I'm 21 years old and I love children. In my teen years I've worked as a volunteer in a few nurseries and was also a babysitter for children and infants between the ages of newborns to 14 years old and I loved every minute of it. Since then I decided to explore my other options for jobs but I keep coming back with the strive to work with children. I love to bring projects and games for us to play and learn new things together. I'm also a big animal lover so pets are definitely ok with me! You can ask me anything you'd like and I have plenty of references that would give you many great stories from my time working with their children. I hope to hear from you soon!!
