Candace A.|Akron, OH

$10-15/hr 4 yrs exp 63 yrs old

Occasional Babysitter/Caregiver Available

I started out babysitting at the age of 11, and I had many wonderful neighborhood families who hired me to watch their children of all ages. I raised 2 children, a son and a daughter, of my own. They experienced a unique childhood, living in 3 different countries and growing up trilingual. I have 3 granddaughters now, and I have thoroughly enjoyed caring for them as needed, from infancy to now the teen years. After many years in the workplace, in 2015 I was offered the position of full-time nanny for my youngest grandchild. I became her caregiver when she was 3 months old, and she recently turned 3 and began preschool. I loved our time together, and we were active every day- story-times at the libraries, Kinder-music classes, visits to local zoos, parks, festivals, and museums. I thoroughly enjoyed being responsible for her and seeing her blossom and grow! I'm available for occasional weekend/school break childcare.

Candace has been our Nanny for the past year (my kids are off to kindergarten full-day, so we no longer need childcare), and we absolutely lucked out in finding her! She took wonderful care of our three children: she made sure our daughter got on and off the bus for school, she shuttled our preschooler back and forth to school, took him to the library for story time, visited the Nature Realm to feed chickadees out of the palms of their hand, and various other activities. She loves to keep busy, and that is one of the things we love about Candace. The think I find most admirable about Candace, though, was her ability to care for our child with special needs. There were various things she needed to do for his care, and each time we presented her with a task, she was ready and willing to learn. We felt comfortable and confident that he was in wonderful hands. I recommend Candace without reservation for your nanny needs! She is flexible, extremely dependable, and my kids adore her.
