I've been a professional nanny (50+ hours a week) for the last 5 years. And a part time nanny in college for 2 years before that. I've spent the last 3.5 years with a family I completely adore, but I am moving to Holden the first week of august, and commuting to my current position will be too far for a daily commute. I'm looking for a September or October start but timing is very flexible. I have my bachelors in psychology, and a certificate in Integrative Nutrition Health coaching. My experience ranges from itty bitty newborns to pre-teens in both private home settings, and at the newton ymca where I worked for 10 years in various areas of the childcare department. Currently outside of childcare, I do laundry, meal prep, and tidy up after the kids and I. When I was working with a baby I would make homemade baby food as well. I also plan a variety of activities and play dates with local nannies and stay at home parents in the area, and take advantage of free activities in the area at libraries etc. Please feel free to send any questions!

I have a daughter of my own, she's 3 years old. She loves other kids though, so if I could bring her some days that would be great but is not required. I have my own vehicle that's already been inspected and is safe for children. The last 4 months I was a full time nanny for two girls, ages 1 and 3. I also used to sit my 4 year old nephew 4 days a week all last year. I have been babysitting on and off since I was 12 years old, I'm 25 now, and I took a babysitting course when I was 14. I am great with kids, and I don't mind doing housework or running errands.
