Maria O. - Seeking Work in Vadnais Heights

Hourly rate8.60 / hour

My large family and love for children have allowed me to interact extensively with children for many years. Growing up, I often babysat for neighbors, family friends and younger cousins, ages infant-12, and as individuals and in groups. I have been in charge of planning balanced schedules, shuttling to activities, light housekeeping and making meals. During middle and high school I was a Vacation Bible School Leader, in charge of groups of young kids, and two summers ago I worked as a facilitator for a program for students entering sixth grade. I worked with them to improve social and academic skills, as well as have fun each day of the summer! Though I've never nannied for an entire summer, I'm excited to take on a challenge and get to know the needs and wants specific to your child/children.
