Hello! My name is Marina. I am a mother of two kids and I have been a nanny for 10 years. I love playing outside with the children. I have a lot of patience with little ones that most people can't handle. I enjoy taking the children to the park. And when I take care of children I tend to teach them some Spanish since they have the ability to learn to languages better than adults can.
This a note from my employer.
On behalf of our beloved nanny, Marina, we are writing an advertisement to help find the perfect placement for her. After 7 years of employment, our two boys, ages 8 and 10 no longer need full-time daycare. She has become like a family member to us over the years.
Marina came to my family in April of 2008 when our boys were 1 and 3. Very good friends of ours were seeking daycare for their 1-year-old son, so we decided to seek a nanny-share. For the first three years Marina watched our friend's child 5 days per week and my two on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. In 2011 we transitioned to using Marina full-time as my eldest transitioned to kindergarten, our friend's son, sister was born, and we added a fifth child from the neighborhood, to our mix.
Marina taught our children Spanish, taught social nuances of manners, sharing, courtesy, gratitude and respect for others. She weaned them from bottles to big-kid cups and even potty trained each one. She never forgot to bring them a present for their birthdays and Christmas. They welcome her with hugs and kisses and seek her for comfort when hurt.
Together they frequent parks, have picnics, take hikes and swim at the pool. When school is in homework is completed before play, playrooms are tidy and dishes put away. They go on scooter and bike rides and have a wonderful time. The TV is almost never on unless the kids need quiet time and watch a movie for a treat.
We will miss Marina dearly once she is gone and feel compelled to make sure she finds a good fit with a family, or families, that will appreciate all the love she will bring to your home. Her last day is September 4, 2015. Please contact Marina to discuss further employment opportunities and don't hesitate to contact me for a reference.
