The Nanny You've Been Looking For!
Avg response < 13 hrs
Fun, energetic and caring nanny with over 20 years of child care experience. I have experience working with infants through school aged children, with two school-agers of my own! I am a very outgoing and fun loving person. I am young at heart and able to provide care and support for any family. Ready to jump right in and play games and have fun, but can provide structure and school help as well. I was born in a loving family of seven, which included my parents and four siblings. My childhood was very happy. With a stay at home mom and a opera singing dad, my days were filled with activities, sleepovers, music and home cooked meals. I belonged to Girl Scouts, competed on a swim team, and played softball and soccer. I believe the experiences of my childhood have had a huge influence on my career decision. I genuinely care about people and I love children. One of the most rewarding jobs I had as a teenager was babysitting for a family with four children. The children became so attached to me that I was "adopted into the family." For over a year, I worked in a nursing home, where I fed, bathed, clothed and tucked in the elderly residents. It was both heartwarming and sad to have them share their memories with me. For some, I was their only friend. I began working as a cook at KinderCare in 1996, immediately, I began taking on other duties, such as driving the school van and teaching. I also completed the food program paperwork as part of my regular duties. Because of my skills and growing experience, I was transferred to another facility to upgrade their center's performance. In that time, I also became the third key holder, with the responsibility off running the center should need it and provided one on one orientation for new employees. I began at Bright Horizons in 2001, where I was Lead Teacher in Brown Bears. I showed initiative by quickly completing baseline training, presenting workshops as well as training staff members. I also participated in the KWP program which sends staff members to provide child care for children in non-traditional settings. I began working as a nanny in 2007, shortly after I had my second child. The dynamic setting helped me manage my new family, as well as continuing my career passion of providing quality child care for others. I have not only supervised their son, but I have managed vendors, ran errands, some light housekeeping, provided homework help and much more.
