I was a nanny in Pennsylvannia for over 4 years, and then when I moved to Colorado, I recieved a position as a nanny for a one year girl for over an year and a half. Then I was a babyistter for 2 little girls twice a week for 2 years. I have 2 children of my own (Scarlett 3 and Penelope 2) and I am also a nanny for 2 children, ages 5 and 2. There family is moving in the spring, so I am currently looking for a new position. Ideally I am looking for 1 child to watch, so that we can still do all the fun things (zoo, museumsetc.) I have always loved being a nanny, so I am just glad that I can still continue to do it while getting to spend time with my children.

I have been working with children since I was 16, so it's been about 4 years. I worked at Primrose Schools for 3 years and loved it. I worked with ages 6 weeks to a year then soon moved classrooms and began working with children 18 to 24 months. I had the hard decision of leaving xx for a job offering I had received to be an infant teacher at a School in Thornton. I chose to except the offer and say goodbye to xx. I am CPR and First Aid certified and always keep that up to date. I just recently got my CDA (Child Development Associates) through CareCourses.com. I have been employee of the month at least three times and was just recently awarded "terrific teacher of Adams 12" and I was very honored and proud. I love kids of every age and I learn something new from them everyday.
