April C. - Seeking Work in Chester

Full-time hours

Hi, my name is April and I have been caring for children for most of my life. I have experience as a pre-school teacher and as a nanny. I have been a nanny for the last eight years, six of those with the same family. I have worked with children of all different ages and it does have its challenging moments, but it is also very rewarding. I have experience caring for children ages three months to 13 years, caring for multiples, and caring for up to five kids at one time. I take children to and from school or activities, amusement parks, playgrounds, museums, paint your own pottery places, schedule play dates, do arts and crafts, carve out time for learning, cook meals for the children, and encourage independent play. Currently, I am going to school online to become a teacher. Working with children is, and always has been, my dream. It's a great joy to watch children grow and learn. Also, I have references upon request.
