Part Time(can Be Full Time) Nanny/ Helpful Hand
I have experience with infants to age 13 years old due to working as a KidZone Specialist at the YMCA. I have a passion for ensuring the well-being of others, especially children because they are very important to the future and without a stronger childhood and upbringing their lives are cut short. I know how to change a diaper, make a bottle, how to get on the level of a child so that they understand me and feel comfortable, I know how to have fun with slightly older kids without allowing them too much privilege, and overall I am up for the challenge. I am a student in college striving for a nursing degree, and have learned many methods and techniques to adolescence since high school. I can also help with homework, mostly Math and English, and I have a car of my owe so I can help out with errands as well. I understand that sometimes life happens and everything can not always balance out, therefore I would love to help. I have a pet experience also.
