Lavon, TX Nannies

Carissa-Marie V. - Seeking Work in Lavon

22.85 / hour

Nanny Experience! Worked full-time for a family in Frisco with 3 children under the age of 8. In addition, I have baby sat since I was 13 years old. I have spent the past few years building my family and have a 1 year old son (11/2012) through the gift of adoption. I hope to find a family with a 1-2 year old that is in need of full time care during day hours that I can bring my son with me & they can be on the same routine & enjoy the same activities. I also don't mind the roll of a house manager to extend my responsibilities beyond caring for the child, however the child would always be my primary focus.

I was a part-time nanny for a family with a 4 month old boy and 4 y/o, 6 y/o and 10 y/o girls. I watched them all part-time during the week and I would pick up the 4 month old on Sunday morning, take him to church with me, bring him back to my house for a few hours and then take him back to his house. I also babysat a 5 y/o boy for about a year. He LOVED me (he would grab my legs and beg me to stay). That is the only "paid" child care I have provided, but I have ALWAYS LOVED babies and children and have been very involved in childcare with my siblings, at church, and our other social groups.
