Greetings Potential New family: My name is Alexis. I am more than delighted to fulfill the position of becoming your new part time nanny for your loving family. I have been a nanny for a grand total of 4 years as well. I am currently an activd family with another loving family but to my dismay, they are relocating to a completely different state as well. Nevertheless, I am in search of a new family that needs an influential, positive, easy going & generous nanny permanently. I am the absolute best candidate for the position. I have an extensive background in Early Childhood Education which has enabled me over the years to adapt to any setting involving children of multiple age groups as well. I have obtained my 90 clock hour certification through the State of Maryland and upon doing so, I have been honored to work as a past employee for the two following renowned daycares: ** Bowie, Maryland and **, District of Columbia daycare facilities. Currently I am a part time college student at PGCC, I will transfer to University of Maryland College Park in the up & coming semesters. I have my own reliable transportation. If/when we both see one another as the perfect fit I will submit to a background check, provide personal MVA drivers record, give a number of references in which you can contact and set up a mutual date & time for us to speak. Thank You. Best Regards, Alexis
