Hello families! My name is Kristen Wentzell. I am a mother myself and a care giver. I do casual work in group homes but only a shift or so a week. My son is 8 and I have him week on week off. I am looking for some extra work here and there. I love little ones!

Hi! I'm Nia, an experienced babysitter/nanny in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I'm looking for a family seeking excellent care for infants and/or school-aged children. I have grown up babysitting my two younger siblings throughout their infancy and childhood. I took care of them full-time during the pandemic when they couldn't go to school, so I have some teaching/tutoring experience from that! I have also been a kids' volleyball coach and camp counsellor. Most recently, I have been substituting at a daycare for school-aged children. I'm passionate about making learning fun and outdoor adventures! I am currently seeking a flexible, casual position as I currently work full-time and will return to full-time studies in September. In addition to caring for your little ones, I can also provide housekeeping, meal preparation, and pet care. My asking rate is $18.00/hour. I am dedicated and reliable. I have a driver's license and my own vehicle, so I am willing to travel to you. I am certified in Standard First Aid & CPR/AED. If I sound like a good fit for your family, please send me a message so we can discuss further!
