I have been caring for children for 11 years now and I have been a nanny for almost 4 of those years. I started my babysitting business when I was 12 years old, caring for children in my neighborhood. I decided to become a nanny the summer after my first year of college in 2012 and I have loved it ever since. I am 22 years old, the oldest of 3 younger siblings and caring for children is truly the highlight of my day. I am planning to finish school at MSU and earn my Bachelor's degree in Human Development and Child Studies. I hope to become a Preschool Teacher. My schooling may begin by next spring or summer of 2016, but I would start off as a part-time student for a while. I volunteered in my high school day care for 2 years where I learned how to properly change diapers, bottle feed, spoon feed, rock to sleep, read to, and educate children between the ages of infancy to 4 years of age. The past 3 families I have nannied for had infants all beginning at the age of 4 months old. I still am in touch with all of these families today since they are like family to me. I am a very dependable and caring person who truly loves to care for children. You would be able to rely on me and I always work extremely hard. I have a resume and references if you are interested in learning more about me.

My name is Chandricka, but everyone calls me Chan. Allowing children to learn and grow is rewarding to me because it gives me a sense of motivation. My past childcare experience was with a child whom I watched from an infant until the age of 2. I was able to feed, care and nurture the child as though it was mine. Being able to care for someone child is one of the biggest responsibilities ever and I never take it for granted.
