Full-time hours

My name is Hannah, and I am 23 years old. I recently relocated myself from Illinois about 6 months ago. Because of my love for children, I decided that a nannying or babysitting job would be absolutely ideal for me. I have much experience babysitting groups of children in the past. I have helped with various daycares, and watched children in church. I have also taken many a babysitting job in my day. As a nanny, I would be committed. I hope to be someone that can provide supreme care to your children and fulfill their every need, but also be their friend and someone that they will remember fondly for a long time. I currently reside with my best friend and her father. I would be open to being a live-in nanny, because of the fact that we are in a small apartment with little space. I would be willing to clean, cook, provide homework help and many other things that I could do to contribute. Unfortunately I had to leave my car in Illinois, as it would not have made it across country..but a car is the first thing on my priority list to buy, so my lack of one is only a temporary hindrance. Thank you for your time and consideration!

I have been a child caregiver since 2005. I began as a mothers helper in 2005 for a family with two children, one with mild down syndrome. I worked with this family three times a week. As I got older I began to babysit for a family multiple times a week sometimes up to twelve hours. Since then I have been on and off nannying or babysitting while in college. The summer of 2012 I nannied for a family full time. This included breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Driving the kid to camps and the pool. I also did minimal house work and lots of healthy and delicious food preparation!

I consider myself a great nanny as I've told I'm caring, loving and very passionate about people in general. I'm Filipino and we have traditions and values that I learned while I was growing up that molded me to be a great person with a kind heart.
My mother was a grade school teacher for 25 years and I learned from her how important it is to teach little children the foundation of learning before sending your children to school. My son was a year old when I had him learn how to read and write. Now he's in senior in college and thankfully, the tuition is all paid for as he gets 100% sholarship.
