Aphtyn M. - Seeking Work in Durham

14.28 / hour

In the past, I have cared for children of all ages. I have 8 years of experience babysitting my two older sisters' children from the time they were newborns. Boys and girls have specific needs when it comes to play time and social activities. I love to take kids outside to play rather than let them vegetate in front of a TV screen all day. I enjoy helping them master their creative and fine motor skills with crafts and fun activities during our time together. My nephew and a few other children that I have babysat have had allergies to be aware of and also Type 1 diabetes, which requires around-the-clock care. I can assure you that your child/children will be safe and have an educational and fun time while they are in my care. I look forward to hearing from you!! :)
