I was a nanny for an infant, her two-year-old sister and four-year-old brother. I started nannying for the family while the mother was pregnant. She gave birth to a beautiful baby girl two months after I began nannying for the family, so I learned EVERYTHING there is to know about an infant. I worked M-F from 7:30a-6:30p. I always used to ask my mom for a younger sibling growing up, but my mom was finished having children after she had my twin sister and I. I would be too I'm sure! Anyways, I was never given a brother or sister so I filled this void by babysitting at the age of 12. I adore children, but I had to leave the last family I nannied for after working for them for almost three years because of the position I was offered at work. I was working per diem and was offered a full-time position. I am currently the xx in Roxbury MA. I love my position, but I miss nannying so much! This may be my last opportunity to nanny, since I will be going to graduate school towards the end of August. I've babysat for a family with three boys once and they all had the flu. I cleaned up after them, fed them, bathed them, read to them, and they all went to bed happy and content. I know how to care for all ages of children. From newborns to teenagers; I'm comfortable with them all. Feel free to message me if you'd like more information and/or detail about my experience with children. Good luck with the search for the right fit for your family's needs! -Zoie

I've been babysitting since I was 13 years old and am now 22. I've babysat all ages and have babysat for families of all sizes. I spent two months last summer as an au pair in Spain, living with a family of four (two children). I was responsible for caring for the children all day and early evening, taking them to and from the bus stop to school, organizing fun, educational activities for them each day, and teaching them English. I am comfortable cooking, doing light housework, driving the children if necessary, and staying overnight on occasion (for live-out positions). I am kind, compassionate, loving, energetic, and I love to find creative, fun ways to keep the kids entertained and happy. I've become close with every family I've worked for and am still in touch with almost all of them from throughout the years. I have my B.S. in psychology, with a focus on child development, and am working towards becoming a counselor for children and adolescents. I would love the opportunity to speak further with you about working for your family.

My experience with children varies; In addition to ensuring their overall care and safety, I love including art and crafts and out doors activities, especially playing soccer into the daily routine! I also love to swim and cook. Working with children is not just something I do just as a job, but an experience that is fun and one that I genuinely enjoy!

Since age 15, I have been fortunate enough to have others trust me with caring for their little ones. I am strongly passionate about children and believe every child deserves to be protected while individually understood and appreciated. Most recently I have been privileged to work with households residing in San Antonio TX and Boston MA. I enjoy working with all age groups and have experience working with 1 yo to eleven yo children. I do also have professional experience working with k-12 when working for SA Youth as a college intern in 2014. I also have many family members with infants I have provided care for.

My past childcare experience has been amazing. I really enjoy being with youth simply because they are happy for no reason. They are pure and fun spirited. They like to try new things and love to explore. I have taken children to museums, the park, gymnastics classes, rented a movie and camped out in the living room. Played hide and seek in the house and went to the Copley library for an outing. Made our own home-made pizzas and created cool arts and crafts projects plus made up a performance for the children's parents comprised of singing and dancing and acting which was a lot of fun.
