Full-time hours

About two and a half year ago I graduated from the University with a bachelor's degree of arts in Early Childhood Education. I have been working with children since I can remember. When I was in high school, I was a nanny to four children during the summer for three years which created in me a love for nannying, little did I know that a few years later I would become a professional nanny. I have a wide range of experience with age groups starting with newborns all the way to 13 years old. Working with children at a kid's club weekly became a hobby of mine when I was in middle school and continued all the way through college. Since I was an education major I also have volunteered in many elementary classrooms. I have also worked at a preschool where I organized fun games and activities that are learning centered. I love pets (especially kitties) and have skills at both cooking and cleaning and am certified in first aid and CPR.
