Full-Time Nanny Available With Over 4 Years Experience
I have cared for children for a lot of my life. I have had many great experiences with wonderful families and would love to create a relationship working with another family. I nannied/babysat for a family for over 3 years. It started out with only 2 children, ages 3 and 6. During the years of caring for these children, the family decided to have a third child that I cared for starting at newborn. I grew with this family and had the pleasure of helping these children grow as well. I currently nanny for a wonderful family of two boys, ages 3 and 5. I absolutely adore them and the family! We have a great relationship and I'm thankful for being able to care for this family. I have a lot of fun with the boys by staying active, but also reading and giving them some individual play as well! In my most recent years, I have cared for a distant friend's children and their two large dogs for about a week. The mom and dad went on a much needed vacation while I cared for their family at their home. This was a full-time, overnight position and I loved it! I care for my cousin's daughter as well, when needed. I thoroughly enjoy working with kids, I have a great passion for art, being creative and being active which I love to teach the children. I work with the kids teaching them skills such as working as a team, having patience, enjoying small things in life, and most importantly having compassion for one another. Structure and routine is very important with young children, starting from day one. I'm believe children function best with routine, having a sense of stability and normalcy. Breaking routine is okay once in awhile, but when it comes to eating, napping, or bed time it is vital.
