Full-time hours

I've been around young children my entire life. When I was growing up, my mom had a home daycare. I used to help care for the children every day after school and during the summer. As an adult, I've worked as a nanny for the same family for four years. I've grown very close to this family, and their children were even in my wedding :) I no longer work for them, as I've moved away. However, we stay in touch and talk often. Most recently, I worked as an infant caregiver at a non-profit daycare through the xx Church of Dallas, TX. My husband and I are new to North Carolina, and I am eager to work for an individual family again. I hold as Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education, more commonly referred to as a Child Development Associate (CDA). I am also studying Sociology online at Kennesaw State university, where I will graduate with a Bachelor's Degree this Fall 2017. I am also Infant/Child First Aid and CPR certified.

I am on the hunt for a new family to join! I have been working for a wonderful family, however, it's time for both kids to be in school full time. I am looking for a full time position in the Wilmington area. I have experience with all ages of children. I've been working as a nanny for the past 12 years, and I've been watching kids all of my life. From working in the nursery at my church to babysitting regularly for multiple families to live-in and live-out nanny jobs. I am currently caring for 2 children, ages 4 and 6. I've been with them since November, and before then I nannied a little girl from 6 weeks to 3 years. I still watch her here and there over the years. Before working with her, I worked at an academy in Lawrence, Kansas as an assistant teacher. Before that, I was a live in nanny for a family in Bel Air for about 9 months. I started when their daughter was 2 months old, and had to leave because of relocation. I have great references and am eager to speak with you soon!
