11.42 / hour
Full-time hours

After having my twins in 2009 and deciding not to go back to my full time job,and stay home with them I realized just how much I enjoyed staying home with them and taking care of children. Six months later I decided to nanny for my best friend after she had her daughter so that she could go back to work. I love children and enjoy helping someone feel comfortable leaving their child(ren), to go back to work, where I feel that they can receive more care and attention vs. being put in daycare.
