My name is Elissa. I am 27 years old with a love for art, animals and kids! I have baby sat since I was about 13 Years old. I am oldest of 10 grandchildren on one side, cousins all ages between 2-13. I worked at child care centers since 2016, as a Infant and Toddler Teacher! CPR/ First Aid certified! I have other qualifications as well. I was a Registered Behavior Technician doing ABA 1:1 therapy with kids between the ages of 2 years old to 18 years old, that are on the Autism Spectrum. Prior to Covid I baby sit occasionally for 3-4 families that I have been with for years now! I did nanny before and take all the precautions possible to stay safe for my family as well as theirs. I love art. Any chance of arts and crafts I’m taking it! As much as I love Read more kids I found that daycares are not where I want to be, so I fell in love with nannying! Working one on one with a family to get a child the care, love and guidance they need is how I prefer to work.
