I have experience in babysitting alongside my peers who are nannies and I am interested in becoming a nanny myself. I love children and regularly spend time with my cousins who are now 6, 7, 12, and 14 years old. I played sports growing up so I am very physically active, love the outdoors, and am very creative when it comes to making new games for the kids. I am a Junior at the University of Washington Tacoma Campus and will be done with classes June 1st. Before this date my availability is completely open on MWF and the weekends. On Tuesdays I have class from 8am-3pm and Thursdays 10am-3pm. After this date my availability is completely open.
