I have been babysitting for 8+ years and have worked as a nanny for 4 years. I have cared for children of all ages, from infancy to teenage years. I am CPR and first aid certified. My duties have included light housekeeping, meal preparation, laundry, homework help, and more. In every place I have lived, I have found families that I work with and whose children I care for, and it is always a joy (for both of us!).
