Full-time hours

I have been a live-out nanny for over 20 years. I have worked in the Washington Metro Area in Arlington, McLean, Alexandria, Great Falls and DC. Presently I am out of work because my employer was laid off. I have taken care of children from the ages of newborn through 16-year-olds. When they are infants, I feed them, bathe them, change diapers, prepare their bottles, go for walks, play with them with their toys, go to the park with them, read to them, do laundry and tidy their rooms. I also take them to their appointments and other activities. When they are of school age, I cook for the kids, do grocery shopping, drive them to their activities, do laundry, play with them and tidy up the house. I love working with kids and enjoy being with them. I am a US citizen and have a valid Virginia Driver's License. I can swim and I am capable of administering CPR if needed.
