Full Time Babysitter/nanny Available
I am the oldest of four children, and my mother had an in-home daycare while I was growing up. I helped my mom with caring for my siblings and daycare kids. I have done babysitting here and there on the side since I was about 14 years old. When I was 17, I watched a boy who has down syndrome in his home and also transported him to physical therapy sessions. I have my bachelor's degree in human development, specializing in early and young childhood. While in college, I had an unpaid internship at a down syndrome achievement center called GiGi's Playhouse, where I worked with individuals in all age groups that live with downs syndrome. I also have several friends who have children aged 6 months to 8 years old that I watch from time to time. I am currently working part time in the mental health field with adults, and I am looking for a full time job working with children. I have my own vehicle and I am a pet lover! I'm willing to do some light housework as well if hired full time.
