I am willing to help with light housework, laundry, homework, meal prep, swimming supervision and transporting your children to and from school / activities. My job is to make your life easier!

I have worked with children since I was 13 when I began as a mother's helper. At the age of 15 I began babysitting and I have made a lot of connections with families I have worked with. I have traveled with families (including a trip to France this past summer) and done many overnights. I am comfortable caring for children with special needs as well as families with multiple children and twins. I have also worked in daycares for the past 4 years, all of which I am happy to use as references. I have a Bachelor's degree in Pedagogy (concentration in early childhood education) with a minor in humanities and completed many practicum hours in childcare centers.

Nothing makes me happier than caring for children. I pride myself in the effort and creativity I put into finding new and exciting ways to teach children of all ages. I have spent many years as an Equine Instructor giving private and group horseback riding lessons as well as hosting Summer Camps. This has given me a great amount of experience in watching multiple children at once, as well as multi-tasking in several different activities. I am DCF Certified to work with children and families, as well as CPR/First Aid certified. In the past I have been a stable nanny for two little girls ages 2 and 5, as well as part-time babysitter for an infant. I am an extremely easy-going, patient and reliable 26 year old female looking to find a loving family in need of my help!

I was a previous babysitter for a fantastic family from 2010-2014. It was a brother and sister that I would transfer from school to their homes and extracurricular activities. The parents were divorced and lived less than 5 miles apart therefore on alternate days we would have a different schedule. Occasionally I would also help out with their stepfather's two twin boys! On average I would spend about 30 hours per week with the children and the occasional weekend.
