Hello my name is Ruth! I live in Alexandria VA. I am a mom of 2 kids and am a friendly and energetic assistant teacher with years of experience in early childhood education. I'm motivated to help children become happy, healthy and well behaved. I'm highly dependable, have excellent attention to detail, bilingual (English/Spanish), I have both certificates for child CPR & First Aid Certified, and am knowledgeable in the medical field (I studied nursery in college in my country). I've worked in a daycare for 6 years as an assistant teacher and I've been a nanny for a family whose child I cared for since they were a newborn to their 2 years old. I'm open to weekend babysitting as well as staying some days later if necessary. I have experience with all ages from new born to elementary school kids. I love being creative with them such as Read more playing games and doing activities with them like crafts, dancing, and going out to the park. Pets aren't an issue and neither is more than one child as I'm open to care for 2, and I can provide transportation as well. I enjoy seeing kids grow and love learning from them too! I hope you can see how trustworthy I am and I hope to we can work together to care for your little ones!
