I have a lot of experience with all ages, especially newborn to 4 years old. I also worked at a daycare for about 2 years with the toddlers and as needed in the infant room. I am not really looking for a live-in position, but would consider it. I would love to find a full-time position, but will definitely consider part-time work. Even though I only have a a little over 3 years of experience as a full-time nanny, I have over 9 years of experience working with children of all ages. Please let me know if you need someone. I would love to help out. Thank you for your time.
