Full-time hours

Though I have no formal nannying experience, I have a lot of experience caring for children. As the oldest of six siblings I have had numerous opportunities to take kids to school and activities, prepare healthy meals for families of 8 and help with housework. I have also frequently been called upon to care for children in my neighborhood and community and have been able to perform similar duties. While working as an assistant to Dan Oaks of DVO Enterprises, a recipe software company, I was often called upon to drop his children off at school, activities, haircut appointments etc. This was my favorite part of the job and I was able to cultivate a relationship with his children so that they felt safe and comfortable with me.
