Csilla V. - Seeking Work in Westport

Hourly rate11.42 / hour

Once a child told me: "You know Csilla when you started to be my nanny I didn't like how you do your job but now after 5,5 years with you I have to say: Thanks for taking care of me and everything I really appreciate it!" So, I think it explains everything, every hour worth for it, to see a smile on a happy child's face!
