Hi! My name is Nancy and I am a retired active young Sr, citizen. I first started babysitting the neighborhood young children and babies when I was around 10 . I just love kids, love to teach them. nurture them, play with them and I Love to make them giggle!! I have no current babysitting references...although I HAVE baby sat many times thru-out the years, but my career has been corporate retail and wholesale But feel free to do a background check on me and call my character references. Basically, if you are looking for a reliable, fun, active young "Grandma Type".....we might be a good fit! I am looking for the occasional opportunity..... like a backup to your ft sitter or nanny like "date nights!!" out of town needs school is canceled for the day your child is sick So.....etc. etc.......whatever your needs are! I live very close to Read more Downtown Ottawa should you wish to drop your child off. I also love puppies and would like to pet sit/cat sit......and walk your dog. My 13 tear old 9 pound Shih Tzu died about a year ago, and I miss him so much and I have a lot of love to give to your pets, and of course your kids! Also, I feel very strongly in engaging and interacting with your children. I don't watch TV, and I would not be on my computer when I am with your child. I love to take kids to the library, playgrounds, etc. So any questions, please just ask...and.thanks for your time reading my short bio!
