I have worked in a daycare. Once I left the daycare, I cared for a family that I met through the facility. I watched her two boys for about 4 years. I currently nanny for a family that has a 1.5 year old and a 6 year old. I have been with them for over a year! I do light housework including dishes, children's laundry, tidying up play areas and children's rooms. I prepare meals and bathe the children as well. I am lucky enough to be able to drive the children to play groups, the park, library and any errands the family needs.
