Anna S. - Seeking Work in Dummerston

22.85 / hour
Full-time hours

I have known that I enjoy working with children my whole life it is something that has always come naturally to me. I have been babysitting since about age 12. I worked as a teaching assistant in an early learning center for almost three years with children ages 8weeks to 6years. Throughout my time there I got the opportunity to go to many trainings concerning early education as well as work side by side with some great teachers. I learned a lot there and got even more experience than I had before. I also got a lot of experience with children with behavioral and mental disabilities while working there. I am CPR and first aid certified. Im looking for a nanny position because I enjoy a smaller group setting or one on one so I can grow a connection with the children and it would also allow me to do more activities with them. I am very caring and really love caring for children.
