Trustworthy And Patient Nanny/Mother's Helper, Available.
I have been caring for children for 15 years now, more professionally over the past 10 years, for children from birth through age 5. My experience ranges from full-time to part-time help, assisting new moms a few mornings a week, to working full time as a nanny for over 8 years. I have extensive experience with newborns and toddlers (twins too!), as well as setting and maintaining routines while still leaving room for flexibility and growth. I believe in supporting children's natural exploration, curiosity and free play by providing a developmentally appropriate play space. I love singing with them, reading countless books, and playing at local playgrounds. Outside of the home, I have worked in a preschool where I gained experience caring for multiple children, preparing organic, balanced meals and leading outdoor playtime. I am trustworthy and loving, patient and nurturing and I know how to lead by positive example!
I am Trustline certified, have Livescan fingerprints, a valid CA driver's license and a clean driving record. I have my own transportation.
I also hold a BFA in Visual Arts, and specialize in maternity and infant portraiture.
