I love kids and enjoy having fun with them with creative work and outings. I have worked as a private nanny, worked in a kindergarten, babysitted around Auckland and in the Waikato. I raised my kids with special needs and taken care of children with health issues. I have also trained as a youth mentor and worked with youth. I am in my mid 50's am reliable, responsible, versatile and easy going. I enjoy cooking also with kids and teaching them in the kitchen and home and love reading to them stories or helping them with reading and education. I am registered with a few nanny agencies and babysitting agencies. Happy to travel a bit further if longer hours.
