Before working in a childcare facility, I had baby-sat for several years for various local families. The ages of the kids were from infant to eleven years. I began working at a daycare in Enon called Kiddie Launch Learning Centre in the infant room,so I have experience with infants. I also filled in when the toddler teacher was out sick, so I have toddler experience as well. I quit the daycare due to personal reasons and scheduling conflicts. If you need specifics, I am more than willing to explain myself. After the daycare, I nannied a 15 month old little girl for 6 weeks in her home. I baby-sat over the summer for a 7 and 9 year old boy and girl. I also teach Sunday school at my church for the two and three year olds.

Victoria  V. - Seeking Work in Springfield

Hourly rate9.31 / hour

I was a nanny for less than a year. The reason for this was because my clients moved. I cared for 3 children, ages 2-13. The thirteen year old was only after they got back from school. I was a babysitter for a couple of families in my neighborhood but there was one family that I was a constant babysitter for. Their child was 7 and he had temper problems. I learned to deal with this behavioral problem very well. My time with them ended when their house went into foreclosure and they moved.
