Hello! My name is Cait, I am 26 years old, and looking for a new family to jump on board with! Just a little about me: I have worked with all ages. Infants, Toddlers, School-Age, you name it! I have a knack for instantly winning over bff status with kids, and pretty much have been babysitting/working as a Nanny for over 10 years! That includes both live-in and live-out families I have worked with, and your everyday babysitting jobs around the neighborhood. I really do love what I do, and it makes me happy to see your little ones happy. As a Nanny in general, I provide an environment that is fun and joyful, but most importantly, one that is safe and grounded. I encourage your little ones to learn the world around them, and why it is important to do so. I try to bring out the best in whatever situations they may be going through, or your family specifically, may be going through- and bring joy and laughter with me! I listen to what they have to say, and help them discover what this thing called life is all about, as they are developing their unique personalities. In addition, I have been a certified EMT-Basic since May 2012, which of course encompasses both basic life-saving skills and CPR.

I have an extremely large family with my grandfather having twelve brothers and sisters,which leaves me with tons of little cousins! I have grown up with many cousins at least 10+ years older than me, and with 18 little cousins all at least 8 years younger than me. While I was growing up I spent a lot of time babysitting and taking care of them and I absolutely loved it. I have also had a few families I babysat for when I was younger in high school. I have not had the opportunity to really grow up with children of another family, but this is what I am looking forward to doing with your family!
