I have taken care of all ages from infants to 13+. My most recent experiences include nanny work for some military families in the Meridian, MS area. The children's ages ranged from one year old up to 8. My duties included making meals, helping with homework, light housekeeping, helping the children learn obedience/manners/respect, bedtime routines, school pickup, and much more - basically whatever the family needed. Of course there was play and creative art projects, walks, games, nature, baking, movies (age-appropriate, of course) and the like!

I have worked in a Montessori school and have had years of wonderful interaction with children.
