Kathryn  T. - Seeking Work in West Milford

22.85 / hour

As a teen I was heavily involved in babysitting and nannying neighborhood children. As a young adult I moved into working at my grandmothers day camp (Frog Hollow Daycamp, Cranbury NJ). I've cared for children of all ages including my own. I was a single mother of 4 children for the past 20 years. I successfully raised the four of them into their adulthood, during which time neighbors, friends, and myself would participate in a babysitting co-op where we would all care for each others children at different times during the week depending on one another's schedules. I currently care for children on an as needed basis and can provide references upon request.
