Nadine R. - Seeking Work in West Orange

Hourly rate22.85 / hour

Dear families, my name is Nadine and I am 25 years old. I have been working as a nanny and housekeeper for 5 years. My babysitting experience goes beyond that. I am experienced with kids of all ages. My duties included: driving the children, homework supervision, cooking, preparing snacks, cleaning, doing laundry, running errands for the family, and of course a lot of playing. Since I am going to college, I am taking education very seriously and I think it is really important. I try to transfer that value to the children I watch and it went really well until now :) In the summertime, or when the weather allows, I like being outdoors. I enjoy doing crafts, and I love to read. I love playing board games as well :) I am punctual, reliable and hardworking. I am a safe driver and I have my own car.
