Full-time hours

I used to babysit my next door neighbors 4 children when I was in high school. I then was a Nanny for my mothers friend who had a 3-month-old, 2-year-old, 4-year-old, & a 10-year-old. I was their nanny for 6 months until they moved. I can cook breakfast & lunch for the children ( I will do dinner if the family is running late) I will watch the children, take them to the park, take them out and about; If they are school aged children I will pick them up, help them with their homework and watch them till I have to leave. (will do more if asked). I was a floral designer for awhile so I love to do arts and crafts! I will find fun things to do with the children that are active, creative, and things that they can learn from! I also have a friend who is a nanny that watches a 3-month-old, 2-year-old, & 4-year-old that I will occasionally get with to have play dates with the children so they are social with other kids instead of me all day. These gatherings will be at parks, Chuckie Cheese or other children friendly places.

I started babysitting when I was ten years old and have continued ever since. I began to nanny at the age of twelve for a family with two older kids, five and seven. I watched them from 8am until 5pm. I worked in childcare at my church for five years and babysat on a regular basis through high school. Now that I am in college, I continue to babysit and work as a teacher at xx as a part of their after school program. I am currently CPR and first aid certified. I have been through extensive training for my job at Rainbow Bible School and have a lot of experience with kids.
