I discovered I have a knack when it comes to working with kids, so I decided to go down the nanny road and do something that would both benefit myself and the children I was responsible for. Alas, seven years later it has been an awesome journey. I have taken care of infants to high school kids. Each family comes with different necessities, so I take the time to fully understand their needs. Some of my duties have included, bathing, feeding, changing diapers, driving, carpool, cleaning, cooking, laundry, shopping, homework, enforcer, ultimately running a safe and fun household. Once I gain an understanding of what the job entails I am able to anticipate all principle needs and execute precisely. A bit about me: I am athletic, played many different sports throughout my elementary and high school years, such as soccer, basketball, softball, cross country, on my free time I enjoy swimming, biking, cooking, traveling, meeting new people, and learning about different cultures and love to shop. I am creative, fun, tri-lingual (english, french, creole, and learning spanish), very outgoing and I'd like to think that I have a great sense of humor. I always make sure my kids are smiling, polished, and at the end of the day learn something new. Thank you for your interest and I hope and I wish you all the best on your search. Thank you, Kaina

I am currently going into my sophomore year at Hobart College in upstate New York. I began babysitting when I was a freshman in high school for a family with four kids and have been babysitting that family and many others around my town since. I have experience with special needs (autism and Down syndrome) and feel comfortable with any ages and also with any number of children. I am the second oldest in a family of four children and feel comfortable in any setting. If need be, I am also fluent in Spanish as I have gone every summer to visit family for the past 10 years. I truly love babysitting and am always happy to help in any way that I can! I have no problem with doing laundry or helping with housework as well! I have worked at camps for the past few summers, so I am also very comfortable with babysitting multiple kids at a time. I am looking for a full time nannying job Monday-Friday this summer and would love to speak more about this!

I started babysitting about six years ago for a family with three children under the age of three and discovered that I really enjoyed it! I come from a large family and am the second oldest so even when I am not babysitting, I am around kids and always feel comfortable. I have continued babysitting for many families in my town and as a camp councilor as well. Although this is a job, babysitting is something that I enjoy doing which I believe definitely reflects positively in my job performance!
