Katie K. - Seeking Work in Lake Grove

20.00 / hour

Having a lot of older cousins growing up, I gained a lot of experience at a young age by watching infants and kids. I started babysitting when I was twelve or thirteen years old. I've watched over 15 different family's kids and have had nothing but great times while keeping things under control. Right now, I'm occasionally watching a family with 5 kids, 2 of the 5 being 1 1/2-year-old twin boys. I really do love children and love being a nanny/little's friend/sitter to look up to.
