Zahily B. - Seeking Work in Newport

10.70 / hour

I have worked mostly as full time nanny for two families in Florida. My responsibilities were to prepare the children that needed to go to school and driving them there and care during the day for the small ones who were still to little to go to school. Cooking, doing laundry, potty training, organizing their closets, helping with math and spanish and substitute parents while on vacation were some of my duties.

With a significant gap between my siblings and I (up to 14 years) I have been living with small children for quite some time. My experiences in helping my younger siblings combined with my early start babysitting (age 11) I have significant experience and a natural love for children.

I have been a nanny for the past nine years with three different families. I'm very hands on with kids. I always like to find something new and educational to do. I love being active and outdoors as much as possible. I have always had full responsibly while being a nanny. I was there when the children woke up until they went to bed. I brought them to school, playdates, camp, sports, art class, etc. I made dinner and helped with homework. Pretty much everything a parent does, I have done while being a nanny.
