Lacey B. - Seeking Work in Stony Fort Road

17.14 / hour
Full-time hours

My childcare experience has been wonderful. I started at part time at xx Center as a 'floater' in the infant toddler and preschool rooms. After working part time for a month I discovered my passion for helping children develop & learn. I went from part time to full time after the first month and stayed there for two years. While working there I also babysat for numerous children of all ages that attended the center. I left the center due to the fact I wasn't making enough to support myself, from there I started nanning. I worked for a family full time with two girls aged 3 & 6. My duties for the family included pick ups & drop off to school and daily activities, homework help, all house cleaning and laundry, dog walking, grocery shopping, meal prep, and lastly bathing. While I nannied for that family I also nannied for a 2 month old boy during weeknights. Currently I am at an in home daycare caring for 2 year old triplets.
