My name is Karly and I am a 26 year old mother of an almost 2 year old boy! I have been nannying for about 3 years now and the boys that I am nannying for no longer need care so I am looking for a new family to work with. Before nannying I worked at the OSU child care program both as a student aide (2 years) and as a full time teacher (3 years) and it was a great learning experience. I am comfortable working with all age groups, with multiples and children with allergies. I love being outdoors and active so I take the kids on tons of outings, rain or shine! I also plan many developmental and fun activities for the children to ensure they are being engaged and are working towards hitting all of their developmental milestones. I also have the fun and unique opportunity to bring my little one along with me when I nanny (if you have any questions or concerns about this, the family I nanny for said they would be glad to answer any questions!); it has been a very fun experience to see the kids grow up, learn and play together. I hope for the opportunity to speak with you and your family about possibly becoming your nanny! Thank you!

Hello! I am a 31-year-old mother of 3 who would love to have another child around during the day to play with my 2-year-old! I would provide care in my home as I have my own child during the day, but we are smoke-free, and there are no animals in the home. We do have goats and chickens out back though! I have my own transportation, and also live in Galloway. I drive a mini-van that is very reliable. I am able to help with going places throughout the day, but I do have to get my children on and off the bus. I would be able to drop-off and pick-up your child from preschool if needed. It would be wonderful to have another little around to play with my 2 year old and I, and to have a little baby around again! Mine are getting too big too fast! Although I do not have professional experience when it comes to childcare, I believe that you will find I am very passionate and hands on with my own children, and would do the same for yours. I can prepare meals and we have plenty of toys and fun things to do in the house! I would love to hear more about your child and what you are looking for!

Hey there mom and dad! My name is Jada Little-Sales. I've been working with kids practically all my young life. From one relative to a relative's friend, I've spent a great deal of time taking care of kids. I don't have any of my own biologically, however, I have three godkids. Not only do they have both of their parents, but me as well. Sort of a co-parenting situation you could say. I feel that I owe my ability to love a child like my own comes from the lack of connection I had in my own childhood. I guess I simply find myself wanting to impact a child's life just by giving them everything I would've wanted in those crucial moments when all a child needs is connection with as many positive influences as they can get.
