Professional Summary

Childcare professional seeking a full time childcare position. 

I have been working as a nanny for almost 20 years. In recent years I have also done some personal assistant work. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching these families grow and being with these children as they have said their first words, taken their first steps and now gone on to being in school full-time. I am looking to work with a family who needs a nanny for at least 40 hours per week. Experience includes  working with children from infancy to high school age (some with special needs), running errands, cooking, baking and educating and entertaining children.
