Hello! My name is Alyssa Plaut and I am a senior at the University of South Carolina. I am studying Public Health and Psychology and plan on attending graduate school to earn a Masters in Psychology. I am from Cincinnati, Ohio where I spent most of my high school career babysitting children of all age groups. In the past, I have worked as a full time nanny for three children. I also have experience with caring for children with special needs. I am CPR certified and am comfortable watching multiple children at a time as well as taking on various responsibilities such as meal preparation, transportation, homework help, and most importantly want to build a great relationship with your children! I am outgoing, engaging and would always make sure your children are happy and having fun! I have always been passionate about caring for children and would love to help Read more out in any way possible.
