4 yrs of experience

Hello! I am a very experienced and caring nanny who loves being around children. I have completed two years of college as an education major and acquired my 90 hour early childhood certificate. I have enjoyed all of my nannying and babysitting jobs so much that I am not yet ready to start my career as a preschool teacher. My current nannying job will be ending in August, and I am looking for another great full time position with another family. I am open to nanny shares, and can help out with any housework or cooking that needs done.
