Kylee F. - Seeking Work in Gloucester

22.85 / hour

For nearly 5 years I have been a stay-at-home-mom and nanny. Prior to having my children, ages 4 1/2 and 2, I was a preschool teacher. As much as I loved the classroom setting, I wanted to be home with my daughter to watch her grow. I have nannied for two different families in that time, one with three children ages 0-8 and the other started with one infant, and then added another a couple years later. I am EEC certified, have my associates degree in Early Childhood Education, and over 20 years combined childcare experience. I like to bring humor and fun to the people I'm around. I love art, music, the outdoors, animals, reading/storytelling, history, and science. I am very passionate about figuring out how a child learns and helping them to be the best person they can be and foster a love for learning. I have recently finished my first year of a three year herbalism program, so I have a good grasp on medicinal plants and how to have a healthy body, something else I'm passionate about.
