Candace’s Bio

Hello Potential Family! My name is Candace O’Brien and I have been babysitting/nannying for 11 years. I started off in my hometown of Jupiter, FL taking care of two families before making the move to Savannah, GA in Fall of 2009. I moved here to pursue my B.F.A. in Art History at the prestigious art school the Savannah College of Art and Design. Before I permanently moved here, I went back to Jupiter to for holiday breaks to work in upscale retail and to resume my nannying position for a long-term family. But, I eventually decided that it was best that I permanently moved to Savannah to further my studies into the Summer quarter and to research for my Thesis.

I graduated in May 2014 and decided to return for the Fall 2014 quarter to begin my M.A. in Art History. This is has not stopped me from babysitting for vacationing families. I would like to have a more permanent and occasional/part-time babysitting position in between my Docent and Part Time Sales Associate job (these will not hinder me from babysitting for you and your beautiful family).

When it comes to babysitting, I like to take a hands on approach. I am not a fan of television. I believe that it is best for children to be active whether it is physical, artistic, play time, or educational games. Also, I like to make sure that everything is kept clean after playtime. In addition, I love to help with homework. I come from a highly academic background form my high school education to my Undergraduate and Graduate studies. I find it important to bring in creativity in everything I do with children as it helps to grow their minds.

Children are also my passion. I want to become involved in after-school artistic programs to help children in need. I have a strong passion for children and their development.

My motto for when I take care of children for families is that I provide “Love and Care While You’re Away.” I love children especially since I have two nephews and two nieces (I have a picture of my youngest niece who is an absolute princess).

If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to email me. I respond quickly and would love to answer any question you may have.
