Nanny With 9 Plus Years of Experience, Excellent References, I Enjoy Spending Time With And Getting To Know Children

I have worked with all age groups as well as personalities. I have been a nanny for over 9 years. I have been working with children in various areas for around 20 years including in-home daycare, a center, as well as a church volunteer in the nursery. I am CPR/First Aid certified and I have excellent references. I am patient and always teaching. Being an excellent communicator helps my relationship with parents. I am prompt, flexible and very reliable. I am also active, fun, creative, outgoing, loving, caring and still love watching children learn and grow. My philosophy is that when parents are away, children need to feel safe and loved. I am a mother of two older children so I am very active with sports. I love to be outside, rollerblading, running (new) and reading. My family likes to travel to different destinations. I love animals and I have two cats. We would have a dog if time permitted. I am very involved with my sons' sports. I prefer to work part-time but I am open to other options. I have completed a little college but I was a stay-at-home mom. I plan to someday return once my duties at home are complete but it will be geared toward the child care industry. My current family is having another baby and has decided to stay home. I would really love to find a family with an infant or young children so we can establish a long-term, lasting relationship.

At Dawn of Discovery, our goal is to promote emotional, intellectual, social, and physical development in each child in a safe and nurturing manner.

We have been sending our children to DOD since 2016 and have loved it! The staff have become like family to us. They know each child's name along with their parent's names and truly treat each of them as someone special and not just another kid at a center. When we were looking around for a center, their prices were the most reasonable. Also, it is always very clean, and their COVID policies make me feel safe. We love this place!
