My nanny duties included nurturing, safety monitoring, and home schooling/tutoring. Children's care included food choices, medications, personal habits, restrictions, clothing choices, disciplinary methods, potty training, initiated and implemented the use of award charts, assisted with school assignments/projects, children's meals and snacks/bottle feeding. I devised and implemented a schedule that met the physical and emotional needs of the children, enhanced children's emotional, physical, social, cognitive and language development, growth and milestones. I provided stimulating and age appropriate interactive activities, planned play dates, and fun excursions. I initiated and implemented positive self-imaging activities, i. e., books, movies, plays, initiated and emphasized connection and importance of empathy, positiveness, inspiration, service, success, and meditating.
I created a positive child care climate by avoidance of or effectively handling sibling conflict situations, while keeping each child's self-esteem uplifted and intact. I helped the children keep bedrooms and play area tidy. I was responsible for children's hygiene including children's laundry, teeth brushing, bathing, diapering, bed and crib changing, bottle washing and sterilizing, etc. I initiated and implemented a team work, ownership environment where the children ultimately accepted responsibility for their actions, learned to resolve conflict with little intervention, and were able to work as a team to accomplish tasks that I strategically challenged them with. Other services included bill payments with check or credit card, checking mail, phone messages, scheduling service, maintenance, and medical appointments. I put the children down to bed, kept detailed diary of daily activities, met with parents and children weekly to discuss the next week's plan, disciplinary challenges or improvements, recorded any challenge that occurred during the week, reported situations that needed to be addressed by the parents, and overnight stays when parents were out of town. In addition, I've attended several infant, toddler and school-aged seminars and events.
