ChiChi M. - Seeking Work in Okemos

14.28 / hour

Hello! My name is ChiChi and I have been babysitting for over 8 years. Children are one of my greatest passions and I really enjoy spending time with them. I have worked in various settings including churches, family homes, and a preschool. The children I have cared for have ranged from newborn babies to teenagers and I have worked with as many as six children at a time, so I feel confident in my ability to handle any situation. I understand the importance of spending time with kids on an individual level and helping them realize their own special talents. I am always punctual with my appointments and take my time and yours very seriously. I also work part-time as a tutor and would be happy to help the children with any homework. Looking forward to meeting you and your family!
