Loving Nanny With Educational Focus And Household Helper
I have cared for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school age children. The families I provide care for are like my own family. I straighten up and run errands as needed. I am very affectionate with my kids, love to play outdoors, and don't mind getting messy from time to time. I am highly educated, and am able to tutor older children with homework.
My philosophy with children is they learn best through play! The amount of interaction that a child receives greatly influences development. A child learns best through safe exploration. I do not believe in any kind of corporal punishment. Discipline is taught by children making their own decisions with-in safe options, and learning through natural consequences. By modeling good manners, and kindness children learn from their caregivers how to behave with others.
With every child I have ever cared for we have gone for walks every day, and spent time playing outside. I am a huge believer in early literacy and will read with your child everyday as part of our daily routine.
Art and cooking are other passions of mine that I will share with children and families in my care.
