Hello, I'm Ciara!
A little about me is that I have been in customer service for all of my adult work life, however, I also have been the designated babysitter with all my friends and family for as long as I've been of age. I have been apart of several kids camps over the years as team leader, and music lead, thus developing the capacity to care for many children, get creative solutions, have fun with crafts and games both indoor and outdoor, and to think quickly on my toes.

Something that I believe makes me stand out from other nanny's is, I have a very loving and caring heart. In my group of friends they've always looked at me as the "mom" of the group. I always want to make sure everyone is okay, that they have ate, and they're always good emotionally. I am also very interested in always going on fun activities, like going to the zoo, aquarium, and the YMCA. I hope to hear from you soon, I would love to help you out.
