Loving, Experienced And Passionate Nanny
Hi, I am Shalom. I am 34 years old. I have extensive training and experience caring for infants, toddlers and children, including multiples. I am a professional, qualified and responsible nanny, who is very passionate about working as an early childcare educator. I don't only take care of basic physical needs like safety, good nutrition and good hygiene. I also work with the parents and do my best to help the children I care for, grow and develop to their fullest potential by forming good habits, having good manners, being fair, courteous and considerate of others. I teach them to be able to solve problems on their own. Also to have a positive self image, I encourage them to express their feeling and desires and to use their creativity. My philosophy of teaching good behavior is through positive reinforcement, making sure they are listened, feel loved and respected and given as much attention as possible; and if needed give them timeouts, I think the important thing is good communication and to be consistent. I take the children I care for to fun outings: parks, museums, libraries, theaters so they can explore have fun and learn new things and interact with different people. I also have experience as an ESL teacher. I am also certified in CPR and First Aid, Infant & Child Health and Safety, Child Development-Ages and Stages, Age Appropriate Activities, Building Positive Self Concepts in Children, Nutrition and Feeding. I am fun, have lots of ideas and skills for crafts and teaching. I am very good at preparing healthy snacks, purees and meals for the children I care for, also have a lot of experience and techniques for feeding. I am very organized and don't mind doing housework, including, laundry, cleaning, dishes, sweeping and keeping rooms clean and straight. I am patient and responsible. I have lived in MD for the last 9 years working as a nanny. Before that, I lived in Brazil where I worked as a nanny and teacher for 4 years. I absolutely love children.
