I am a hardworking, trustworthy nanny who loves to have fun with kids! I have three years experience with all ages, up to three children at one time. I also have infant experience. I enjoy helping out families by being a meaningful contributor to the household to ensure everything continues to run smoothly. In my previous positions I have done grocery shopping, run errands, dropped off/picked up children from school and activities, washed laundry, organizing, party planning, prepared meals, light housework and cooking. In addition, I also really enjoy taking the kids out to fun places such as museums, the zoo, the park, movies, cider mill, and anything else your kids like to do! I think it's important for kids to have structure and learn responsibility but still have fun at the same time! I have an easy going positive personality, I am a hard worker and I just like to have fun and be happy! At the end of the day I want you to come home to a clean house so that you can be stress free and enjoy being with your children.

I cared for three children all year Monday through Friday. I have cared for these children since they were born. The middle child was a boy with autistic tendencies, which I have helped with since he was 2. I have experience with all age groups and also have experience caring for children with special needs. I clean the house, wash dishes, vacuum, put away toys and mop. I have my own car so driving to local pools, parks, beaches, and stores is not an issue. My main focus is on giving the children i care for a positive and stimulating environment.
