Hello! I grew up in a huge family. My mother passed way early, leaving an 11 month old and a two year old, along with us older siblings. My father worked full time, with the two eldest siblings working with him. That left the task of rearing and looking after my two sisters to me. While unexpected, it was great! I love engaging with children's curiosity and working with them as they grow. Soon, the homeschooling group was expanded, and there were two more young children left in my care. Along with watching after all four, I was in charge of the whole household's meals, cleaning, and homeschooling schedules. I did this very efficiently for 10 years. I love working with people, and especially children. I have a degree in engineering, with an emphasis in mathematics and environmental health science. And while getting my degree, I began working as an In-Home Care Attendant for the disabled. I've been working with people with disabilities for 10 years now. It continues to be very rewarding, and humbling. I've recently reduced my workload with the In-Home Care Company, and I am eagerly looking at being a Nanny/Governace, again; with the continual spontaneity and curiosity of watching after and helping children grow. If I can be that reliable, energetic, Nanny that's ready to do all those activities (while following your routine), with your child or children, let me know!

I am a 19-year-old freshman in college and I am studying nursing. When I was 13, I completed a safe sitters course and I have been providing childcare ever since! I am CPR, First Aid, AED certified and a CNA. I work at 2 daycares, and I will be working at another one in August. I have worked at one of the daycares for a year and a half and I watch 6-10 children there, every time. On my busiest days, there I care for 10 kids, two of which are 3 and 6 months old. The kids and I have a lot of fun together and I love watching them grow and learn new things! I like doing crafts, playing board games and playing other little games. I have worked as the preschool/kindergarten teacher at my church's VBS during the summer for the past 4 years. I have watched kids from infant to 12 years old, including those with special needs. I have worked for over 20 families and I can say that I have enjoyed working with every single one of them. I enjoy working with kids of all ages, but I really love working with babies and toddlers, and I have a lot of experience with both.
