Hello! I have been a full time nanny for 3 years and my duties have included pick-up/ drop-off to school, planning schedules and activities, as well as attending those activities with the kids. I love taking the kids to the zoo, COSI, the library, parks, and the pool in the summer! I have helped the kids learn their numbers, shapes, colors, alphabet, and manners! I love planning activities to promote fine and gross motor skills, I adore helping little ones grow and learn about the world around them! Most recently, I have been working full time for a family with 4 children, a newborn girl, a 2 year old girl, a 3 year old girl, and a 6 year old boy. I have experience swaddling, establishing schedules including feeding, sleep, and activity schedules for all 4 children. I am responsible for transporting them to and from their activities, helping with homework, planning age appropriate activities for the 2 youngest, and keeping the children engaged with fun learning activities while they are home!

Previously, I babysat for almost 10 kids with a partner for my church who varied from ages 3 to 10. I also occasionally babysit my cousin since she was 3. Also, although I do not have a regular babysitting job, I often have my parents friends want me to watch their kids while they go out. Last, my boyfriend has a infant nephew who I watch very frequently, probably 3 times a week.
