Flor M. - Seeking Work in Ridgefield

22.85 / hour
Full-time hours

I started babysitting for a family of 3 since I was 17 years old. After my retail job closing down in 2008, I was offered a job taking care of infant twins and a toddler, I've been working with this family since then. I have seen these 3 kids go from diapers all the way to their first days of school. I'm very close to the family, they've become like a family to me and I'm very sad to be leaving, but due to their scheduling needs, and my college, I had no choice, but to start looking for a new job. I have experience with multiple kids, special needs, behavioral/developmental issues, anxiety disorders and ADHD.
