12+ Years Of Experience With All Ages Of Children!

Responds within 5 hours
I have a lot of experience with kids from working at a drop off day care when I worked at a gym and that was with children ages 8 weeks-12 years. I worked there for a year and a half. I work at a Montessori school where there is a lot of structure and I work with the kids more. I love working with kids because, I think I'm a great role model for all ages. I was raised in a family with high values and morals and think that it's important for everyone to know how to be there for kids and show them the right way. I think I'm a well-rounded person and families always trust me. I'm very patient with kids and always take the time for them no matter what. I never give up. I am very imaginative and put thought into every game and everything I do. My games are fun with educational learning and interaction. I'm good with all ages including babies but my favorite age is the toddlers. They are a lot of fun with lots of energy like me. I can work long hours and always have a happy smile on my face no matter what, I'm more than willing to come early or stay late in any situation, anything to help a family out. I've worked in private homes for 10 years now with all ages of children! Kids are my passion and I love helping families out with their children! I'm the best childcare provider, who wants to be at your home that always takes 100% care for your children! I continue to Nanny even when I have a degree because my desire to help families out with there childcare is a passion of mine. It's hard to so find me one who truly cares to want to be there to help with families' kids & I love it.

Hello! I'm a passionate educator with over 8 years of child care experience. I have an Associates Degree in Visual Arts, but my passions go well beyond art! I love learning and being able to share knowledge with others. Coming from a large family and working with kids from all over, I've learned that patience and kindness are the best skills to have. My other skills include tutoring, cooking and baking, cleaning, as well as the creativity to make a fun and comfortable environment for children to thrive. Besides working with the younger generation, I've always had a passion for working with animals. I have worked with numerous species and I am quick to learn about new ones. I do not have any allergies that would restrict me from walking and caring for any type of pets!

I cannot say enough great things about Emma! We have three small children and a number of pets at our house and she juggled it all with ease. Emma was a lifesaver during an entire month that my wife was away on military training. She helped transport the kids from daycare to our house at the end of the day and she would stay until I got out of work. She also watched the kids for full days on the weekend when I had to work. She was punctual, extremely reliable, and she communicates well. Most importantly, my kids absolutely love spending time with her. She even went out of her way to bring things for them to do (very thoughtful!). I would absolutely not hesitate to let her care for our children again (which we plan to do as often as possible, as long as she is available).
