Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I have worked for years with children of all ages, from infants to teenagers. I am currently a nanny in Atlanta, GA, for two wonderful little boys with mild autism. Unfortunately, the family is moving at the end of April, and I'm moving to New Haven, CT, a few weeks later. Prior to my nanny experience, I worked for a little more than 5 years for the YMCA as a school aged care provider. I began as a program staff, worked one on one with kids with special needs for two years, and then finished off with them as an assistant site director. I worked with children ages 5-10 in the program. During the school years while in college, I volunteered in the local hospital pediatric unit and worked part-time at an after school program for children with special needs. I have a ton of experience with kids with disabilities, and am especially interested in autism. I also serve as an ABA therapist for one of the boys I currently nanny and plan to get my master's in ABA sometime in the near future.

I have been working with young children for the last 14 years. I have worked with young children in daycare centers as well as a live out nanny for 2 1/2 years for a family of 5. I truly enjoy working with young children. To be apart of a child's life when they are babies then watch them grow so rapidly is the most amazing thing to watch. It gives me a warm feeling to know that I had something to do with them growing into wonderful little individuals!
