Sara H. - Seeking Work in Irwin

I have had over ten years experience babysitting and interacting with small children. Having a family full of younger cousins I have spent many a weekend taking care of them. However, my experience does not stop at family members. I have been a tutor for over 10 years and can easily assist with homework. Through these experience I have come to understand how children function best and what type of caregiver I am. I also found a love for children that allows me to see them for what they are, little friends!

I have an associates degress in early childhood development. I have had many jobs from a preschool assistant/lead/and professional nanny. I have work at many esteemed places such as Kansas State University ECE center, Ft. Riley CDC and have been a nanny for a couple of working professional families. ( including children with special needs) I love the more direct attention and activities that can happen as a nanny vs a classroom setting. Keeping busy with age appropriate activities and being outside are my favorite things to do. I am having a baby in July and am looking for work by the end of the year or beginning of 2019. All clearances and cpr are up to date and can be shared upon request.
