Kristen B. - Seeking Work in Sherborn

22.85 / hour
Full-time hours

My formal child care experience began with volunteering for a local special needs organization. We would set up parties for the kids once a week so they could get a little fun in there lives. It was really rewarding to get to make a huge difference to these kids who have to struggle to go through life. I worked as a group leader at the YMCA which my duties were feeding the kids snack, crafts, sports and homework help. That job was excellent for when I moved to Salem and became a nanny. I have worked with children all over the spectrum along with normally developing children. I have part time and full time experience. I have sat for families with a lot of children so I have become an excellent multi-tasker. Most importantly I just genuinely enjoy children.
