Tammy C. - Seeking Work in Southbury

I have a lifetime of experience taking care of children of all ages. I believe in safety first and taking care of children like they are my own. I have excellent references and I am a very reliable, caring and tidy person. I am a stay-at-home-mom of a funloving, sweet 7 1/2 yr. old daughter and I have been blessed to take her along with me on other nanny jobs for the past 7 years. It is not for everyone that I bring my daughter and I understand that but it can be a very nice situation for the children to have a playmate and a new friend! Of course, the children are all treated equally. Please consider calling me to chat and discuss your families needs! Thanks for your time! Tammy (41 yrs. old)
