Josephine M. - Seeking Work in Walnut Cove

22.85 / hour
Full-time hours

I currently work for a family full time that has an eleven month old baby girl, I started working for them when she was only 3 months. The reason I am seeking another family is because they will be moving out of state. The family that I worked for before this one had four children (a five month old baby girl, three year old twin girls, and a seven year old boy). They also moved out of state. Both of the families that I have worked for were wonderful I really enjoyed working with them (and both are references, should you wish to contact them). I truly love children and I love being a nanny it is a very rewarding opportunity. I have been working with children for about twelve years (seven of those in a professional childcare setting), I also have my associates degree in early childhood development. I am very interested your position and hope to hear from you soon. You can give me a call or email me (I check email every few days, so phone would be best for an immediate response).
