I am 19 years old and have been babysitting since I was 12. I am pretty young but I have tons of experience with children. I have been around children my entire life and I have babysat many different families with kids ages newborn to 14 year olds. I am known for successfully babysitting up to 7 children simultaneously. I love children. Kids always gravitate towards me! I have been CPR certified in the past. If you would like me to become re-certified it would be no problem for me to take a refresher course. I don't smoke. I never have and I never will. I have my own car so I can transport myself and take the kids places! I will interact with the children, get to know them individually, help them on homework, get them places they need to go, cook for them, teach them, keep them clean and keep them safe. I know how to effectively discipline children without physically or emotionally abusing them. I believe in acknowledging what children do correctly. I also believe you shouldn't ignore bad behavior or choices. Instead, you should teach them. I am open to being a live-in nanny, part-time nanny, full-time live-out nanny, etc. I am very flexible, loving, kind, trustworthy, honest, organized, understanding, fun, creative, communicative, adapt easily, outgoing and energetic. I don't mind pets. I have a sense of humor and a huge heart. I can multitask. I have never officially Nannied or Au Paired before. But, I have to start somewhere. Right?

I believe in creating a fun, educational and nurturing environment for your child that encourages creativity, learning and respect for one another. I am 24 years old and have been married to my husband for four years. We have previously lived in South Africa and Uganda, where we opened our hearts for at-risk children and teens to create various ministries including street children outreaches and community children's programs. I have previously cared for children at two different preschools, counseled children at a YMCA summer camp, taught dance to preschoolers and coached a swim team. In addition to my professional experience, I have also completed the MAPP Foster Parent Training Course. I believe that the diversity in my childcare experiences and training provide me with a well rounded knowledge of caring for all ages of children. I will provide a nanny or babysitting service to your children that allows them to have educational and fun experiences.
