I have worked in previous childcare centers for the last 8 years of my life and would like a career change, and work one on one with children in a more in-home setting. I have enjoyed my time working with children and creating curriculum, singing songs, and just making children laugh. I love putting a smile on any child's face! I have loved every minute of being a childcare provider and hope to continue to grow as an educator and a teacher.

I first started as a teachers aide in the infant department at a Child Care. I also helped in the toddler, and preschool classrooms from time to time. I was there for about five years before leaving to pursue a nannying career. I have since worked for two wonderful families. My current family I have been with for six years. My time with them will end on Thursday June 5th. I do bring my children to work with me, and it has worked so well. I love working with children, they are truly a blessing.

I have experience as a nanny from my years in high school. I worked with a family of four boys, three of them triplets. I started nannying them the summer before my freshman year in high school (2010). At that time the boys were ages 3 and the triplets were 1 so I worked with another girl. I nannied for them the summers of 2012 (5yrs, 3yrs) and 2013(6yrs, 4yrs) as well. My jobs included preparing meals, taking them to camps/sports, planning things to do, common sense cleaning, laundry, making beds, make sure the boys did their chores, working on reading/spelling, and most importantly having a fun summer!
