India’s Bio

 
I am a college educated, experienced Caregiver with excellent credentials!
I’ve been a sitter/nanny for over 10 years with six of those years being a mother of one, which makes me that much more understanding to the level of comfort the parents and child need to establish with their caregiver.
While most of my experience is with children, I have also worked for senior living facilities as well as adults with developmental and cognitive disabilities.
I follow guidelines set by you and stay within those parameters, making my childcare decisions accordingly.
I use a combination of experience, motherhood, education and common sense to foster the best care possible.
I hold a culinary arts degree and am well versed in proper nutrition and the importance of water.
(I used to make my daughters food from scratch. She also has a peanut allergy so I am careful and detailed if needed for dietary needs)
I also hold a B.A. in Psychology and completing my M.S. in Family and Human Development this Fall.
We can be at your house or mine, my house is well kept, I have air purifiers and we don’t allow smoking. We do not have pets. (Again my daughter is asthmatic and has allergies so it’s important to have a clean, dust free home)
(I do have a 2012 safe and fully insured vehicle. I also have a squeaky clean driving record.)
I don’t mind being background checked. I also have excellent professional references. I am still close with many of my families I was/am caregiver for, often babysitting for free just because I loved and formed bonds with the children.
I am looking more for short term commitments and even one day, nights or overnights right now. Although I am open to Nanny shares which I have experience in if it is the right fit for me (and you).
I can be contacted via email anytime with quick response.

India has been taking care of our newborn full-time in our home for 2 weeks and is doing a wonderful job. I feel completely confident in her abilities as a caretaker for my son. She is a joy to be around and have in our home. She is also very reliable and gentle natured. She will be an excellent teacher. I would recommend her to anyone.
