I have a part-time job with my current family, since 2007. Some of my qualities are that I'm loving, compassionate, patient, safety-oriented, loyal and reliable. I am presently working from 3 to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. I care for 2 kids, 13 and 6, both are very active, beautiful girls. I am a single mother of one awesome and responsible young adult boy who is now 21. I have sat for kids ages newborn to 15 years of age, which so far, I have been comfortable with. I am a native French speaker. In my caring philosophy, I do not believe in spanking but interact with the child at his/her level for a better understanding/negotiation.
I had a full-time nanny as my first experience being a mother in 1993.
I next experienced the nanny position as caring for a newborn in 2000 for five years in Burke, VA. This family moved overseas for diplomatic reasons. Changing diapers and doing the laundry for the baby, feeding baby on schedule, bathing, playing and taking baby out in stroller for fresh air, were some of my responsibilities. It was like a routine, like taking care of my own kids without staying with them overnight. The safety of the baby was put before anything else! It has been a blessing to be comfortable with all the kids I have worked with! I am now trying to be comfortable with pets (cats and dogs)!
