Hi my name is chana shull, I have had experience with kids since i was 13 years old and i am now 20. I used to babysit the kids around my neighborhood and had a community center across the street where i would assist preschool teachers for afterschool or for camp! I ended up getting a job there working as a lifeguard/ swim instructor. So i am CPR/firstaid/ and swim instructor certified. I have worked with newborns all the way to 5th graders and special needs, and this has been my home for the past 4 years. This job has taught me how to talk to children and calm them down and since i also worked with 12 kids at a time it helped me be able to control 12 screaming kids (lol). I would also work at their summer camp and i did that the past 3 summers. I have always had a relationship with the kids i have taught and the parents and usually end up babysitting them in my off time. I love working with kids and hope you would see me as a potential! Thank you :) (if you need to look me up my facebook is chana shull instagram:chana_shull)

I am a working mom of 3 lovely princesses. I am hoping to share my nanny who from the first day we met has been a joy to my family. She is honest, caring and definitely follows instructions.

Hello I’d like to offer my home for a Nanny share with another family. I have identified a few potential nannies to start on November 4th. I have a 6 month old boy. I have asked the nanny to be available from 8 AM to 6 PM, M-F. Please message me if you are interested in sharing the cost at a very affordable rate in a more private environment than a daycare with another baby to socialize with.

I am located in Kingstowne, Alexandria VA off of Beulah street.
