Hi! I'm Opal, a nanny with five years full-time experience with babies and toddlers from ages 3 months-4 years old. I am seeking babysitting jobs or nannying jobs on a fill-in basis, but nothing full-time for now. I'm available most evenings, and would be happy to join a family as a weekly babysitter for date nights or other regular commitments. I'n also available to lead playgroups/story circles for groups of up to four toddlers, and have experience with this (contact me for more details). More about me: I am a poet (MFA in Creative Writing), singer, yoga instructor (RYT-200), storyteller, and general joy-lover (School of Life ;). I delight in playing, singing, dancing and exploring nature with kids. I am CPR/First Aid certified (Red Cross 2015), an excellent communicator from years in the classroom and workplace, and have my own reliable vehicle. My philosophy of childcare is a holistic one Read more focused on unconditional love, joy, deep curiosity, listening, and mutual respect. I understand the trust entailed in inviting me into your home to care for your children, and I value/cultivate happy relationships with every family I meet. I have excellent long-term references I can share upon request. I look forward to hearing from you! In warmth + gratitude, Opal
