Full-time hours

I worked for a family where I took care of two children, but they relocated back to London. I fell in love with the family and the job and discovered how great I was with children. I also was a nanny for a little girl, age 3. I fed and played with her while she was awake, and during the nap time I did light housekeeping. Then I was babysitting with newborn for a few months. Last time I worked with a nice family with a 9 year old girl. I helped her with homework, and was driving her to school or dancing classes. I'm looking for a nice and welcoming family, and I will be glad to help you with children and the household.
