Loving, Silly, Singing Nanny
In my previous position I cared for 3 terrific kids (3 months/4yr old/6 yr old). I was there for 3 years and continue to be part of their lives. Prior to that I also cared for infants and kids under 5 yrs old. I like to sing (though I don't do it very well!), recite nursery rhymes, paint and read children's books. I believe in long walks for fresh air. I also believe in teaching the values of kindness, patience, and team work. I spent almost four months at a mission for abused and orphaned children and I loved it. The ages ranged from 2 to 16. I fed them, helped them get ready for school, made sure they did their chores, played, did crafts with them, listened to them, hugged and loved them, and put them to bed at night. I sang with them, danced with them, and laughed with them. I was their playmate, their mother, their best friend, and adviser. I can also do some light housekeeping and laundry. I prefer a 3/4 day week but don't mind long hours. I'm flexible with schedule.
