Amanda B. - Seeking Work in West Hartford

17.14 / hour

I have been a babysitter for 10 families in my hometown for almost 10 years! I was a nanny to a family for 3 straight summers and my duties for them included transportation, meal preparation, laundry, light house keeping, tutoring, and planning various, fun, outdoor, summer activities (especially arts and crafts- I used to be an art student)! I absolutely adore children. I have worked with kids at camps, shelters, church, other community service organizations, as well as volunteering in clinics abroad. I am graduating in May 2015 with a BS in Community Health, planning on a career as a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner. I am moving back home to CT in May, and potentially looking to move to NYC or Boston. I have a lot experience in health and first aid. I am so excited to find new families to become a dedicated babysitter for!

My most recent childcare experience was with a wonderful little boy. When I started watching him he was 6 months old and by the time I was done he was just over 18 months. I performed the everyday duties a nanny is required to and we had a lot of fun during our time together as well.
