Loving Nanny Seeking Full-time Employment In Gig Harbor Area

Avg response < 2 hrs
(1)
As a nanny, I have spent the last two years caring for two active and inquisitive boys. I have found joy and fulfillment in building lasting relationships with my children. Prior to my experience as a nanny, I worked in Early Childhood Education for 20 years, where my focus was developing children socially, emotionally, cognitively, and physically. As an employee, punctuality and reliability is of utmost importance to me. I proactively communicate throughout the workday via pictures, videos, and text to keep you connected to the daily activities of your children. I am responsive to constructive feedback and welcome the opportunity to partner with parents to improve the quality of care for your children. I enjoy planning outdoor adventures for the children, as well as planning educational activities around their interests, including science, math, literacy, art, and music.
