Rachel D. - Seeking Work in Hopatcong

22.85 / hour

I've taken care of a 12 yr old for 3 years in a home with 1 parent. It was more like a household management, keeping the house neat and doing errands, driving the child to after school lessons,using the family car. It was a very well paid job and enjoyed the "family" life! :) I also worked with a 4 and 6 yr old girls while the parent worked and the grandmother came over often but it was my duty to play with them take them for walks and feed them, read to them, etc. I've also cared for fraternal twins with an older brother and sister for about a year. I just recently cared for a 3 & 5 yr old in FL and it was delightful! Will miss them. I would now like to be in Florida,GA, SC, NC, NY,NJ. My priority will be with your family first and then time-off will be mine :) although I am flexible on the weekends.
