Reliable and fun nanny/babysitter!
| I have been in childcare on the side since I was 13 years old! I was always the reliable neighborhood babysitter until most of the kids were old enough to take care of themselves. I would help with homework, make dinner, bathe and put them to bed. Most recently I helped with a newborn up until he was 3 years old, I stopped because I moved to the UK but still in touch all the time!

Hi my name is shayea, I am a fun and caring individual with a passion for child development
| My passion for childcare and education began as a young teenager, as I was set on becoming a teacher from a young age. After going to college to study sports coaching and working in different schools for work experience, I decided that an apprenticeship at a nursery would be an exciting adventure, this is where my drive and passion for working with children and young adults really sprouted. I enjoyed 5 years of working in a nursery, all whilst learning and gaining lots of experience. I enjoyed building relationships with the children and parents and providing them with a safe space where they were welcome to learn, play and build relationships. After working in the nursery and gaining the relevant qualifications, I decided it was time for a new adventure. In early 2022 I began working in a special education school as a teaching assistant. I now work closely with children from ages 5-19 and I am super proud of the work that I do as I am rewarded everyday. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. Thank you for your consideration. Shayea
