Kristen M. - Seeking Work in Houston

Hourly rate15.00 / hour
Years of childcare experience< 1 yr of experience

Hi there, My name is Kristen and I am a 23-year-old college student, pursuing my MSW online in hopes to work with children and teens who are walking through trauma and need a safe person to walk alongside them as they navigate life. I have nannied for about 8 years and I love it! I am experienced with newborns all the way to teens. It's no secret that I love kids, teens, and families, it brings me absolute joy to not only work for a family but to become apart of a families life. I particularly enjoy doing arts and crafts with kids like painting, drawing, sketching, beading, baking, and more complex art like paper mache. I also enjoy all the outside play! I am CPR/AED/and first aid trained with infants, kids, and adults, and I can provide references. I am open to working 20-25 hours a week any days ( including weekends) I am also open to family sharing ( looking after 2 families at once and having families split costs) I am also okay with doing overnight shifts

What are some common responsibilities for nannies in Houston, TX?

As a parent, it’s natural for you to ask your nanny for a little extra help around the house. However, the boundaries for a nannies duties vary from person to person.
