Hi! I have 21 years experience in childcare; about 6 of those in a professional daycare/preschool (as opposed to home daycare), and the other 15 as a Nanny. I have impeccable references, and I Nanny for a living, not just until something better comes along. The majority of my experience has been with infants through 5 year olds, but I also have plenty experience right up through 10-12 year olds. I’ve cared for for twins and triplets, adopted children, families with only their first new infant, families with many children, and a variety of daycare, preschool, and after school care environments. I love childcare tremendously, I think I have the best job in the world, and I never want to do anything else.

I am looking for a Nanny share situation in particular. I currently work for two families but one of them is only going to need me for a couple hours of after school care each day come fall because their youngest is starting kindergarten. I would love to add a family to our mix that needs earlier daytime hours so that I am finished with your children very near the time I go pick my other families children up from school at 3 PM. You and your children would be sharing me all day every day with a lovely little two year old boy. Both of my current families are eager to share me, we just need to find people with whom our schedule will work.

I also need to clarify that I had to pick an hourly wage for my profile here, but I do not work on an hourly wage. I work on salary, and with three families, each family could pay a relatively low ammount and still take very good care of me.

Thank you for considering me for your child care needs.
