As for nannying experience I have raised three wonderful children. Up until November 2010 I was previoiusly a nanny for two fantastic children. They live on a 10 acre farm and their single Dad traveled to Europe often on business. My duties included all household responsibilities including getting the boys ready for school, picking them up from school, homework, preparing all meals, laundry, housecleaning, taking the boys to sporting events, parties, etc., taking out the garbage, landscaping, caring for the dog Charlie and the horse Rafiell, shopping, dealing with daily problems and paying the bills. Unfortunately, after 4 1/2 years of employment he had the opportunity to work from home and wanting to be closer to his children jumped at the prospect. I am recently divorced for whom I assisted with his business and handled all the finances. I currently still support my three older children and I find this to a unbeievable oppotunity for me. Unfortunately, I could not afford a college education but I believe that my life experience as a caring, loving mother, friend and worker will prove to you that I am the right person to trust in your household.

I have been a nanny for the past 14 years. The first family had 4 very active little boys, from a newborn to five years old. After two years of being in their employ, they were relocated to Germany. I have since stayed in contact with them and have even traveled to Germany twice to visit. I then became employed with another family and have been there for almost 13 years now. I started with them when their the first child was 5 months old, she just turned 14 in October. They also have a little boy who turned 10 in May. I would still like to be in their employ, however the father has just been laid off of work and since the children are older now, they can start walking home from school on their own. During this time I would schedule play dates, doctors appointments, bring the child to and from after school activities, food shop, do laundry, light meal preparations, help out with homework, bath times, make lunches, light housekeeping!

I'm the oldest child of 5. I grew up helping babysit my younger siblings and decided to nanny starting my senior year in high school. I've traveled out of state with families while they moved to help the child adjust since I was the nanny. I've watched as many as 4 children at once, all different ages.
