Looking For Full-Time Job

I am a very professional and experienced nanny. I've been working as a nanny for the past 19 years. Working with children for so long, taught me a lot about them. About their feelings, their needs, and their development skills. My priority as a nanny is to make sure that the children I am taking care of are safe, healthy and happy. Communication between nanny and parents is very important. I also find value in teaching them how to be a good kids, sharing with each other, being caring to others, having good manners and values, and treating others with respect and love. I am a very organized and clean person. I am trustworthy and flexible. I am dedicated, intuitive, creative and fun. And I take care of the children as I would take care of my own. I love to cook and make sure that the children are having very nutritious meals. I believe that if you love what you do, you do it with love.
Background Check
Reviewed by Dayna G. 5/5 stars
Marlene was our primary caregiver for many years when my children were young. The most loving, gentle, kind and responsible person that we could have ever wished for. My children called her 'Mimi' and still do, all these years later. Marlene was always on time, always smiling, always laughing and playing with our children. She really did treat them like one of her own. Marlene is very artistic (an amazing painter), so she would spend hours doing artwork with my kids. She is also a very good cook and a very healthy person, so I always felt comfortable that she was feeding my children as we would when she wasn't around. Marlene would take our children to the park and meet up with other amazing nanny's as well as personal friends of mine who were not working at the time. Everyone loves her. I HIGHLY recommend her. I have known her for over 7 years now and still keep in touch with her. My children still talk about her and remember so many details about their time with her.
