Nadine S. - Seeking Work in Westport

20.00 / hour
Full-time hours

I babysat for a long time back in my home country. I took care of my dads niece since she was born (she is now already 16 years old) and in the last year I worked as a nanny. I took care of 3 wonderful children with the ages 6,8 and 10 (two girls and a boy). We always had so much fun together. I made them ready for school every morning, brought them over to school, picked them up in the afternoon, drove them to their afternoon activities, played with them and cooked light dishes. Everything that is important to me is to make your children happy and to see them smiling.

Csilla V. - Seeking Work in Westport

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!
