Full / Part Time Babysitter - Nanny
Your search for a trustworthy, nurturing, patient caregiver has led you to my profile for good reason. I have been in the childcare business for a long time and I pride myself in having a consistently excellent reputation as a loving, caring, dependable and talented educator. My name is Nancy and I would like to share more about myself.
Most important, I'm a mom. My husband of 31 years and I have 3 children and I have to say they are good kids, hardworking and kind. Though not really kids anymore my oldest is 30 years old and my "baby" is 14 years old already, each possesses unique talents and is using them to find success. Having fun as a family was always important as our children were growing up as was school work.
I feel that my degree in Elementary Education and my invaluable experience as a preschool teacher was instrumental in my child rearing skills and successful career. Understanding child development is important in determining how to respond to a child's behavior. I understand child development. I expect and accept the challenges at each level. I have been implementing programs to achieve appropriate milestones with success in the 4 year old, 3 year old and 2 year old classrooms. I loved those age levels, oh the stories they tell! I have also enjoyed the past 9 years giving back to my community with slightly older children as a first grade CCD teacher and yes learning their prayers are important but I want my students leaving my class being more compassionate and kinder to each other.
My success was dependent on more than education and experience and that is talent and creativity. My talent is really my creativeness and although I love arts & crafts (any kind) I like to be creative in just about everything I do. I believe in making things fun, having fun singing, dancing, playing games, going for walks, reading, cooking, enjoying the company your with. I happen to love what I do and children know that. They can feel the difference between someone who wants to be with them verses someone doing a job, collecting a paycheck.
I am looking for a position with a caring family in which to bond not only with the child but parents as well.
So parents, don't you think I should be your nanny, I should at least be at the top of your list. Well you know what to do, leave me a message. Thank you!
