Meet Gretchen

  • Speaks English
  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

Hello, My name is Gretchen and I love children with all my heart and they love me.   I am very comforting to children and they trust me. I am also very attentive and aware at all times. I am very energetic and athletic and like to be outdoors. Reliable and flexible as well. I can also care for Autistic or disabled children. Looking for a loving family to become a part of.   I also enjoy volunteering at the children's schools that I care for, because it brings us closer, gives me a chance to give back and it's good experience for my career.  So if you are interested, this is also a possibility.    I was born and raised in Tiverton and worked in Newport for several years.  I attend the University of Rhode Island and am persuing Speech Language Pathology. ****I will be available starting in September (possibily a Read more bit earlier if necessary) and will be attending school as well as caring for your child(ren) but my hours will be flexible because I plan to take classes only one or two days per week or in the mornings or afternoons. I have cared for children between the ages of 2-11 and have watched 4 at a time. I am also an excellent organizer!! I will care for your children as if they are my own and I can garentee you excellent care.
