Full/Part-Time Nanny, With Three and a Half Years Experience
I am the oldest of three in my family. I took on babysitting at age 13, and my love for working with kids has only grown. I went in to working for an in-home daycare/preschool for three and half years. I loved everything about it. Ages ranged from 2 months to 12 years old. I taught preschool in the morning. This is where my love for teaching has grown, seeing first hand how much kids under two can learn. I also taught baby sign language and helped with after school homework. On the other side, I feel making sure kids get enough exercise is just as vastly important. About a year ago, I started thinking about going solo as a nanny. I feel my skills would be put to even better use in a small group, or one on one. I struggled with not having enough time with each child. My ideal job is working with kids under 6, helping to raise and get them ready or ahead for school. Don't worry though, I believe learning should be lots of fun. My communication skill are strong, and I am great with constructive criticism. I'm also open to help enforce religious beliefs even if they don't match my own. I have a healthy understanding of how to blend into a family and help keep things running smoothly. My CPR and first aid certification are up to date, as well as my TB testing. I feel very passionate about consistency in the field of working with kids, so I take being punctual very seriously. I hope in reading this, you can see I am very motivated in being a key player in helping to raise kids to their full potentials. At the same time, I have a clear understanding that each child is as unique and grow at different rates. I also come with a letter of recommendation.
