Full-time hours

I have childcare experience over 20 years, excellent references and recommendation letters. I have been taking care of children of all ages. I find great joy in providing children with safety, education and happiness. I raised my now 20 years old daughter on my own. I was the caregiver/nanny of a disabled adolescent. I fed, toileted and made transports to schools, hospitals and playgroups. I also administered medications (some through a gastric tube); I prepared meals. I did babysit 2 boys ages 12 months and 3 years; we played, read, sang, colored, went for walks, playground etc.; I did transports to the preschool. I was the nanny of a 10 month old baby. I took care of her in my own home on an one on one basis. I have had held a position as a tutor/nanny for a 6 years old homeschooled child. I do teach the german language also. These are just a few examples; I have more work references for you (too many to list); I am able to provide you with excellent references, as well as recommendation letters. I am absolutely open to relocate for a new job.
