In 2008 I worked as a nanny. I took care of 3 kids. ( 1 year old boy, 14 -year old boy, 13- year old girl), but most of time I took care of the baby, because other two children were at school. Performed various duties, among which: driving and picking up from school, driving to a doctor once a week, playing, serving and feeding meals, going outside, going to library and park, reading books, learning alphabet, helping with cleaning the house.( I worked from September 2008 to February 2010)

I have been caring for children since I was 13 years old, between numerous families. I occasionally still help them when they need me as I'm available. I have become very close with all families that I work for and consider them like family to me. I was responsible for feeding, bathing, and general care of infants. I oversaw many of their developmental milestones such as learning how to walk, potty training and learning how to read. I traveled with them on family vacations for weeks at a time. Also, I stayed home with the kids for the parents to enjoy a little vacation. Driving kids to and from school, activities, friends houses, etc. I loved enjoying a fun hot day at the park, playing tag and going to the pool. I've pretty much done it all! I am able to handle the difficult situation of a sick child, as well as a colicky one. Not only am I able to manage one child, but I am comfortable with three children at once. I am a hard-worker and highly motivated individual. You would find me to be a dedicated person who would pride myself on contributing to your family's goals and objectives.

I started babysitting over 14 years ago. I worked in daycare centers for two years. Then I started my career as a nanny. My first private nanny job was for a family of three kids, that lasted for three years, till the kids were full time in school. For the next year I worked with another family of three kids. All was great but the families finances were not doing well, and they accepted a job offer that moved them to Germany. Then I found another job with a family of three but that position didn't work out. I have most recently been watching one little boy three days a week. Now that I'm ready to work full-time again, I'm back on the search for a new wonderful family that needs help with child care.
