Full-time hours

I have been babysitting all of my adult life. In the past 5 years, I have been a long-term nanny for four families in Virginia. Two part-time in Northern Virginia, and full-time in Charlottesville. I have experience with children of all ages with the majority of them under 8 years old, including infants. I have never had any negativity with any of the families and have always become a part of their daily lives. I've fallen in love with the children and treat them like my own. I am fun, energetic, and very interactive with the kids. I love being outdoors, swimming, playing sports, reading and doing arts and crafts. I believe in redirecting children when they are misbehaving. I am able to set boundaries and inforce good behavior.
