Hi my name is Quinn. I am 20 years old, born and raised in Washington DC. I graduated from Woodrow Wilson high-school class of 2018. After graduation I attended Old Dominion University up until the beginning of 2020. Don't let my age fool you. I have several years of experience in looking after kids. Technically I have been taking care of kids since I was eight, watching teachers and neighbors kids after school. Although I didn't start getting paid for it till I was 14 and in high-school. I worked for a handful of families over the years. I was also a camp counselor for 4 years. I am creative, athletic, musical and I really like kids. I more than welcome to help with Light Housework, Crafts, Grocery shopping, and School. When I'm not babysitting I work at Jenis Ice cream about 10 hours a week. Looking forward to meeting your family :)

Kids Make Me Laugh!
Hello! I was in Sales and the Restaurant Industry until Covid19 and then my life did a 180! I do well with children who behave and misbehave, probably because my Mother was a teacher and principal, so it's in my blood! I keep a very clean home and can do the same in yours! I love to have as much fun as possible, and a lot of times that involves being active. I love reading, singing, playing, and answering the unending questions of children!

We are two moms located in Washington DC and we are in search of a nanny who likes crafts, cooking, music, sports with toddlers. We would like someone who can do some light cleaning and also periodically check in on my father who will be living with us for the next 6 months. He is sick and needs a *very* Covid-safe place to live for that time period. We have a 3-year-old who is very expressive and loves to learn! Right now he has an au pair but she will be leaving in January and we would like a nanny to begin at that time. If you will be available, please reach out. Thanks!
