Sarah Ann V. - Seeking Work in Fairlawn

22.85 / hour
Full-time hours

I am currently working for a family that has 4 children. Taking care of their 5 year old daughter(since she was 8months old) and now their year old twins (since they were born). I started with the family in Cleveland Heights and decided to move with them three years ago to Connecticut. Recently married my husband and I have rented out an apartment in Fairlawn and are moving in June 30th. I am a do-all kind of nanny. I prepare meals for the children, clean, do laundry, transportation, play-dates, crafts, and run errands. I love children and chose to be a nanny because of the special bond that is formed. I also worked in a preschool during my last two years of high school in my Early Childhood Education class where I learned so many wonderful ways to teach. I decided not to be a teacher because I want to help families who need an extra set of hands. In this new chapter of my life(returning to ohio where I grew up in Dover) I hope to find a family that already has a system that works for them so I can be an extension of you when you can not be around. I wish to work for parents who want to be with their children, but simply need to work. I am very flexible. I don't mind doing last minute overnight stays or staying an extra hour. Things happen and parents need help and time alone together too! You are the backbone of your family and I am looking to be the extension of your loving arms! Feel free to ask me a ton of questions. Thank you for your time! -Sarah Ann
