Hello Families, I'm Jenny a 26 year old college graduate. I have been working with children since I was old enough too and even before then I enjoyed pretending as though I was able too. I also have experience working at a daycare and taking care of numerous other munchkins. I am Cpr and First Aid certified and will continue to be. It is important to me to always renew these certifications. I currently work for a lovely mother of two beautiful twins since they were babies. ( boy and girl. Almost four years)I helped with housekeeping for the children, bath time, all meals, and educating them through numerous outlets. We've been on vacation together and have enjoyed becoming close. I love them to death however I will only be having a part time schedule soon. It will be almost impossible to leave them however I am not sure this will be enough for hours for me. I am looking for a family with younger children who have a separate living space and can pay on top of living expense at least 600 a week I only ask this much because I really love being a nanny and want to continue doing so however do have two bachelors degrees and have to pay student loans and other such bills. I am quite flexible though. This is not a final say. I am always willing to work around different ideas and plans to ensure everyone is happy. I look forward to meeting you and your children. Jenny :)

I started my childcare experience at a young age by working in a daycare when I was 14. From there I became a summer camp counselor and began babysitting before and after school throughout high school. In college I worked for two different families as a nanny. One family shared time between Vermont and Boston and had 5 children, ages 4 through 13 when I began with them. I would work full time in the summer and weekends in Boston. The other family was part-time during the week while I was in college. They had two daughters, a 1 and 3 year old. After college, I supplemented my initial teaching income with a nanny position. I worked for a family with 2 children, ages 9 and 10. I would pick them up from school, take them to activities, help them with homework, monitor them in the pool, make them dinner, get them ready for the next day, and get them to bed. I am 100% dedicated to the families that I have worked for and have created long-lasting relationships with them.

I also worked with youth with developmental disabilities through the service learning program for 5 months from January 2010 to May 2010. Furthermore, I have experience volunteering as an after school instructor with children ages 8 to 12 for one year, from August 2007 to May 2008. Lastly, I worked as a head camp counselor for three summers from 2005 to 2007, with children ages 5 through 12. In each of these settings I utilized principals of behavior modification including a system of rewards and punishments to provide support for good choices and promote learning for positive behavior.
