Linda R. - Seeking Work in Weare

22.85 / hour
Full-time hours

I've grown up always helping my mom with my younger siblings and was always helping out with other family members such as nieces, nephews and cousins in sitting for them. I have continued working with taking care of children because I really care about them. I have been a full time nanny for the same baby boy since he was 6 months old and now he is 13. I feel so much love, confidence, and a connection with the kids that I've taken care of and it makes my work so much easier. I engage with the child's emotional and psychological health. I love being outdoors and love to plan different activities especially because I have my 13 month old son. I am more than confident that I will help your child feel safe and loved. I can help your child learn responsibilities, respect and love for him or herself and respect for those around them. Most importantly, I will let your kid be a kid and enjoy these youthful years. I also take care of prepping meals, help with homework, light tidying up around the house and doing your child's laundry.
