Monongahela, PA Nannies

Mikayla R. - Seeking Work in Monongahela

22.85 / hour

I have been watching children since I was a child myself. I would always look forward to the days at Sunday School when it was my turn to go help in the nursery with the infants/ toddlers. During family events or parties you would (and still do) always find me with the children. I started babysitting in middle school for family members and church friends- which quickly escalated from word of mouth. I have worked in Daycares and Preschools also but I learned that I like the one-on-one nannying aspect more. I believe that you are able to teach and learn more when it is closer nit. I have babysat/nannied from infants up until 15 years old.Being a nanny has been such a great fit for me as I get to enjoy working with children of all ages and in a variety of ways. Whether it is potty training or teaching respect, I have found that nannying combines my love of teaching and planning with my love and joy in playing with and nurturing children.
