Meet Carissa

Hi there! I have been caring for children ever since I can remember, 13 years to be exact. In the past 9 years I nannied for two different families full and part time, and also babysat for many other families during those times. My experience ranges from newborns to early teens. I also have two younger brothers - one is in elementary school so I have seen and done it all 24/7. I love kids and want to continue caring for them while I finish my education in Early Childhood. I have excelled in early childhood growth and development classes which have given me more insight to young children. I love music, arts and crafts! Outdoor activities are great, along with library trips, going to the zoo and park. Currently, and in the past, I have cared for children overnight, and driven them to activities and appointments. I can honestly Read more say there isn't one age I prefer over another - every age has its excitement and there is always opportunity for growth & learning at any age - it never stops! I am Italian and have traveled to Italy many summers. I love introducing new cultures to children to expand their minds and how they see the world around them - whether it be in the arts, music, sports or cuisine. -Carissa
