I have been taking care of children since I was 15 and I am now 20. I have had a lot of experience with different families over the years. Recently I have been a nanny for two children, one the age of 9 months and the other child was 9. I like taking care of infants because they really need someone to look after them. As of right now, I work at a daycare in Westwood but I am looking for a nanny position instead of taking care of 12 toddlers at one time.
