Hello! You may have just found someone to make your life a lot easier and your children's lives richer and fuller! I've been a nanny for 8 years now, but as is the way of these things, my current charge is getting ready to enter school full time in the fall, leaving me with new availability. I would like to find a position that will be full time and ideally long term. If your family is growing, wonderful! I am great with all ages and have a special gift with babies (I have been called the Baby Whisperer by a previous employer!) I am a very hands on, interactive, educational and most importantly playful caregiver. If/when the children I care for sleep, I turn into a super helper around the house, doing dishes, laundry, general tidying or, if you are working from home, I can even run errands. I have some evening and weekend availability for babysitting, but I do think it's important to have a healthy balance of personal time, so I try to schedule babysitting in advance, and no more than two weekend days/nights a month so that I can also have a social life.
Before going into the private sector, I worked in a wonderful daycare for 2 years, specializing in infant and toddler care. I also worked in the children's department of Borders for a few years (when there still was Borders!) and created a very popular story hour complete with crafts and other activities. While in college I volunteered with the Gratiot County Child Advocacy and even won an award for my efforts! Before that I always helped out in my parents' church nurseries. Basically, there has never been a time in my life when I wasn't working with children!
Everything else you want to know will require getting in touch with me, so please do so! I look forward to hearing from you!
