I've worked with a variety of families with children of all ages (infant up to 14-year old twins) for the past 12 years. I've acted as an occasional babysitter for "date nights," and also nannied for a few different families for the entire summer (and beyond). I am very energetic and,I love sports, and being outside. Anyone who knows me well would tell you that I am very "hands on," creative, and patient. I've taken children to the pool, to and from camps, music lessons, birthday parties, and play dates. We play pretend, color, dress-up, play-dough, t-ball, basketball, kickball, (any other sport ending in "ball"), and beyond. I enjoy baking and cooking with kids (within reason), as well.

For the past 3 years I have been working full time for a lovely family nannying their son. I started when he was 3 months old, helping to establish his daily and nightly routine. As he grew, so did my daily responsibilities with heavy interest on his social and cognitive development. A large part of my job was scheduling outings and playdates. We visited places such as the Please Touch Museum, Philadelphia Zoo, Longwood Gardens, and countless parks. During his naps, I assisted with light housework and organization. Prior to this job, I did after-school care for a 10-year-old boy which included pick ups, tutoring/ homework help, and driving him to sports and other activities. I also nannied for two girls (ages 2, 4) in my first two years of college in MA. In addition, in the summer of 2012 I worked with under-privileged children at Brantwood Camp, in New Hampshire, where I was the Art Director and live-in counselor. After relocating to Pennsylvania, I helped to raise my now five year old niece. I have babysat children both boys and girls ranging in age from 3 months old to 13 years old.

I'm a 29-year-old fun-loving, responsible caregiver and I have several years of experience with children of all ages. I've been caring for children since my early teen years. In the past, I have worked as a preschool-kindergarten teacher as well as a nanny/babysitter. I have had the pleasure of caring for the tiny infants all the way up to the teenagers. I enjoy and am comfortable with kids of all ages and I typically have a knack for the abilities to interact, communicate, and connect with them. Spending time with kids is an absolute joy to me. I enjoy doing the things they like to do, whether it's painting, riding a bike, listening to music, playing dress up, or just talking about things. I have had the privilege of lending an extra hand with tasks such as picking kids up from school, helping with homework, folding laundry, and taking them to/from their extra-curricular activities.
