Currently I've been a nanny in the homes of three families each with twins. One set is 5 1/2yrs and the other is 7 1/2yrs. I started with each family when the children were 3mo. Both will be happy to give references. Loving children, I had a licenced day care in my home for over 7 years. Then for an extended time span I worked in retail management, during that time I was still doing occasional child care for friends, family and former day care families.
