2 yrs of experience

Hi! My name is Cheyanne! I am 21 years old!
Ever since the age of 10 i can remember always wanting to be around younger kids. I started out working in my church nursery and from there i worked in a daycare with children of all ages. When i turned 18 i moved to Tacoma and started working through DSHS as a nanny. Nannying is one of the funnest things I’ve ever done. Not only getting to know these kids on a personal level but being able to be apart and help a family! If you have any questions or maybe some concerns please get a hold of me!
