Mom Who Loves Kids
I have worked in several daycares in the past as well as receiving my CDA. I have worked with children all of my life and have a 5-year-old daughter and a 2-year-old son. I have my own transportation and would need to provide transportation to my daughter to and from school l, so would just need to work that into our routine. I do like having routine and from my experience kids thrive on having a routine. With naps and such. Love doing different activities such as taking kids to story time at the library.

Hello! I'm an architect that works out of the home and need someone to watch my 14-month-old son. He's a pretty happy guy that loves to have someone play with him. I know when I am going to have work lined up 1-2 months in advance so this would be a month by month position, and I'm super flexible about hours but would ideally work Monday Tuesday Thursday. I have two big dogs that stay with me in the office. It would be a big plus if you would be interested in occasional dog sitting as well, but not required!
