I started out caring for children in 2006. I did before/after school care for 5 children for 3 consecutive school years. When I moved to PA in 2009 I was a nanny to an amazing girl in Lancaster, PA. Since then I have met and cared for amazing children of all ages and have enjoyed every minute of it. Currently I am hired by xx families. I care for 2 & 1 year old siblings for 5 mornings per week and a 4 year old 2 days per week. Saturday is my busiest day. During the day I care for 4 children in Manheim ages 7, 5, 4, and 1. My evenings hours are spent caring for 3 children in Lancaster ages 9, 6, and 2. It's just awesome!

< 1 yr of experience

My name is Brooke Ryan and I am currently a college student. I was a student at the University of Alabama last semester as a freshman. This semester I decided to come home and take classes online just to save a little money and be closer to home. I am a biology major and will be attending Lehigh Univeristy next year. I have lots of experience with kids in my lifetime. I took a few baby sitting classes when I was younger, so I am certified in CPR and First Aid. I have never had a full time job as a nanny just because I was in high school and I was working another job. I am devoted to work full time or part time as a nanny. I am a fun and outgoing person and would love to spend my time with kids. If you are still in need of a nanny I would love to meet your family and help you out!

I work with 2 kids, a girl and boy throughout my life from infancy on up. I'm a hard worker, a fast runner, responsible and caring that loves to play games and care for children, a real honest type of interaction. I don't believe in too much television. i'd rather read and/or help a child progress and not regress. or such negative things. I do play soft music only at nap times though that can be flexible dependant upon the parents wishes.
