For as long as I can remember, I have had such a strong and enduring love for children, so in high school I took an Early Childhood Education internship while working as a customer service associate at Brooks Pharmacy. After graduating, I was promoted to Pharmacy Technician and persuaded by the pharmacy manager that I should go on to study in this field since I was learning so quickly. I changed my major to pre-pharm, but not long afterwards I realized that childcare was truly what I am living to engage in. So, I got a job at a preschool as an assistant teacher but left after realizing that was not the setting I wanted to work in. So, I became a nanny for three young children ages 2, 4 and 5. I nannied for them the summer of 2009. After finishing that, I went to hairdressing school and have been practicing hair styling since I graduated in June of 2010. I love doing hair, but I miss working with children. I am hoping to nanny full-time and do hair on the side, or nanny part-time and do hair part-time. :)

Hi, I saw this job opening and I was wondering if the job was still available. I live in Sterling and I graduated from Monty Tech in May 2013 in the business program. I am very organized and the hours are terrific for me. I am currently working at a movie theater in Worcester mostly Saturday and Sundays and was a nanny to a 2 year old boy but unfortunately they recently moved. I also babysat two young girls before school last year and babysat a family friends son on Tuesdays until he went into kindergarten and occasional Friday nights. I have been an all star cheerleader since the 5th grade and love being outdoors. I am very athletic, fun and organized. I have a big family and love watching my younger cousins. I have my own car and would love this job opportunity. Thanks, Cecily Renauld.
