Experienced, Fun, Energetic Nanny
I began babysitting when I was 14, starting with the children of family members and family friends. As a young adult in college, I spent my summers as a First Aid/CPR certified lifeguard working at a small water park with an average attendance of 1200 patrons, largely comprised of young children. I also taught swim lessons to more than 20 children over this period between the ages of 2 and 12. After graduation, I began nannying for a family with three small children, a son and twin daughters. When I began, the eldest was 3 and the girls were about 1. 5 years old. I was with the family for three and half years until the children began school. I spent last summer as a live in au pair teaching English in Madrid, Spain to two wonderful girls, age 4 and 5. My most recent job was working as a full time live-out nanny to three kids between the ages of 2-7. I love playing sports, especially basketball and soccer, as well as being outdoors. I like to be an active nanny who engages children and encourages growth and learning. This can be achieved through reading, games, crafts, play time, or outdoor exploration. As an avid reader myself, I love to encourage reading by either reading to children or being read to. I'm comfortable with almost all animals and I am willing to take on, and have experience with, additional responsibilities including: laundry, meal preparation, errands, housecleaning, potty training and homework help/tutoring. I adore working with children and assisting parents to the best of my ability!
