I have extensive experience as a nanny and babysitter, starting from my high school days as a part-time babysitter to six professional nanny positions, with age ranges from 3 months to 11 years old. I am CPR/AED/First Aid certified and have taken child development classes as well. I really enjoy working with children and can't imagine doing anything else. Being a nanny is rewarding in the sense that it provides a mutual learning experience. Some of my present, as well as past duties include preparing all the children's meals, taking the children to and from their daily activities such as romp 'n roll and the museum, washing and putting away their clothes, making their beds, playing games with them, reading books to them, and helping them through their transitional milestones. Also running errands for the family and grocery shopping. I love to teach children new things and help them grow.
