I worked in Glendale, California for 4 years with a wonderful family as a Nanny/Housekeeper. My responsibilities included cleaning laundry, shopping and meal preparation. These tasks included doing the family's laundry, cleaning and organizing the kitchen in depth, vacuuming and dusting, cleaning the children's bathroom and organizing the playroom and closet. I also cared for and watched over 3 large elderly dogs that required extra attention due to health issues. I prepared and executed meals for the family. This was as simple as preparing sandwiches and soup, but I was also in charge of menu planning, grocery shopping and learning special recipes for the family's special-needs. My transportation tasks included making sure their child was on time to several activities and appointments. This included, but was not limited to driving him to preschool, the library, special classes and doctor's appointments. I also helped create and implement a curriculum. This included playing games, simple math, problem solving and art projects. I attempted to incorporate play into the curriculum, because I believe it's through playing that children learn effectively.
