I have babysat for families other than my own for five years. I have cared for children of almost every age ranging from newborns to fifteen year olds. I can prepare food, carpool, run errands, grocery shop, help with homework, and pool supervise alongside babysitting. I also have owned and cared for animals my entire life, including dogs, cats, mice, hamsters, birds, and fish. I love working with both children and animals and connect very well with both. I love spending time with children and will constantly be interacting with those under my supervision. I do not mind getting on the floor and playing, as I am not the type of nanny to just sit and watch the children I am caring for. I have care for up to five children at a time and am able to give all the attention and care they require. I also have experience caring for children with autism, both mild and severe. Simply put, your child(ren) will be in great hands, and will receive all the care and affection they need!

I am the eldest sibling of 6 children, five girls and one boy. From the age of 11, I was able to care for them without an adult present after school and during the summer. When I graduated high school at 17, I began caring for them year round until age 19, when I got married. In the end, their ages were 13, 10, 7, 5, and 2, the 5-year-old being my brother. Since getting married, I've babysat for several friends and various people on the military base that we are currently stationed at. I babysat long-term for a sweet baby boy from age 6 weeks to 9 months in my home until his parents were stationed elsewhere. I am able to care for newborns through preteens. I'm qualified to care for your baby or child because my whole life has been centered around child care on a personal level and I can provide the love and attention for your child that you would. I am willing to provide childcare in my home, as I have an 11 month old son. Games, dress-up, sports, crafts, and even homework, whatever he or she needs or enjoys, I'm willing to partake in. I have two pets, a dog and a cat. I am willing to do school pick-up/ drop-off, as I have a safe and reliable personal vehicle and a spotless driving record. I am open to employment, as a full-time nanny or occasional/part-time babysitter.

I have taken care of children for over 10 years from infants to age 11. I love babies and toddlers and older children. I enjoy arts and crafts, walks, playing outside with them, reading and singing to them, and making them laugh. In addition to taking excellent care of the children, as a Nanny I also like to take care of the house, making sure it is picked up, vacuumed and the kitchen clean. I do the laundry for the children or family as requested, and will start dinner, or have it ready for you!
