Lynnea D. - Seeking Work in Browns Summit

17.14 / hour
Full-time hours

I’ve been caring for children for 4 years now and I absolutely love it. Most of the children I care for are between the ages of 6 months and 12 years, but I’m comfortable caring for any age. Aside from regular babysitting duties, I help out with anything that needs to be done around the house. I’m a very creative person so I enjoy arts and crafts, and love to share my interest with the children I watch. I’m also a firm believer of educating children at a young age. Due to this, I like to play games that stimulate the minds of the children under my care. For the younger children it’s games that involve colors, shapes, and numbers. For older children, it’s games that involve addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. I also enjoy reading to or with children.
