Former Children's Art Teacher, Babysitter And Nanny!

Hello, my name is Kenzie. I'm 28 years old and I adore working with children. I have experience in babysitting, nannying and teaching. I worked as an Art Teacher for children ranging from 4-12yrs for years at Watkins College of Art and it was one of the best experiences of my life. Children are so much fun and their imaginations are a gift I love encouraging. I also have 9 nieces and nephews ranging from 2 yrs - 19 and I've been taking care of them since the day they were born, often times all 9 at once! I am safety, first aid and CPR trained; my certification needs renewing and I'm happy to do so if you'd like. I have my own car with a high safety rating and an excellent driving record. My schedule is extremely flexible, any hours or days. I'm also available for overnight, full-time nannying or last minute needs. I would love to chat with you to learn more about your family and your family needs. Please feel free to ask me anything. I look forward to meeting you!

Mackenzie worked for us for years as our Children's Fine Art teacher, for our 4-7 and 8-12 age groups. I will say that I have seen very few people have as much patience and kindness when working with children, especially with a full, and often chaotic, classroom at all times. She even managed to make bathroom breaks a fun game (ask her about her Ninja Hall game. Genius.) She also is great at putting out fires i.e.: when a child falls and bumps their knee or if there aren't enough of the same crayons to go around. I would gladly hire her again if she would move back to Nashville.

Hey, my name is Bethany! First off, I am a Christian and I strive to honor God in every single thing I do. I have experience as a preschool teacher as well as school age care. I have a few families that I regularly babysit for and am looking to gain a few more! I have been watching children since I was 13 and I absolutely love it! If you have any questions please reach out to me. I look forward to hearing from you!

Bethany is such a blessing for our family! We have a 4 year old little boy, a 2 year old little girl, and an 18 month old little boy and all three of our children absolutely love Bethany! Bethany has been our babysitter for date nights, Saturday events, and weekly Bible Studies for the past three years and if she is available, I don't use anyone else! She gets all three of my children fed and to bed with ease and on time, every time! My children always look forward to time with Bethany because she plays so well with all of them and you can tell as soon as she walks in that they know she really cares about them. We trust that she will do a great job and we really like that she is willing to ask questions when needed to make sure that everything is done perfectly! Her training and how fantastic she is at her daily job gives us added confidence that she is a special care taker! I wish I was enough business to not have to share her and you will feel the same, I'm sure!

Caring, Energetic Babysitter/Nanny

Avg response < 12 hrs
I have over 15 years of childcare experience from infancy through teenage years. I was a nanny for a family with 4 children. I cared for all 4 children since they were born and I also helped their mom with her in home daycare. I have experience running my own in home daycare as well, with up to 5 children in my care at a time. I have spent the past two years with a fantastic family. I started working for them right after having their first child, and now they have 2 children two and under! We are relocating to a new area, so I'm looking for a new family to work with and to create a strong bond with! I love singing, music, crafts, outdoor activities and laughing as much as possible. I cook, don't mind cleaning, and I like to make learning fun with educational games. I'm a nonsmoker, CPR educated, and have my own transportation.

Leah was our family's nanny for over two years. We hired her when I was about to become a first time mother, and she has be invaluable to us since then. She opened her home to my daughter, and took such excellent care of her. When we became pregnant again with our second child, she rose to the occasion and added her to the crew! My girls absolutely loved going to spend the day with Leah - every morning they would run right in and only look back to blow a quick kiss or wave goodbye. Every afternoon, my oldest asks "can I go again?". There really is nothing more I can say about the peace of mind that brought me. I will be forever grateful for her caring for my girls when I couldn't be there to do it myself. Your children will be engaged, well cared for, and nurtured in Leahs's hands! We would recommend her over and over again!
