Loving, Caring, Educated Nanny And Mother Looking For The Right Fit
Responds within 4 hours
Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile and learn a little more about me. I will say up front that I am new to being a nanny, however, I do have a lot of experience teaching and caring for children. You see I have always loved babies, toddlers and children of all ages and I always knew I wanted a career helping/working with them. I spent time in high school babysitting for friends, family and the PTA. I went to college where I earned my bachelors in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. After graduation I became a substitute teacher for kindergarten through eighth grade, which I loved. During this time I was also a private tutor as well as a tutor for a well known learning center. This was working with early school age children.
In September of 2013 I fulfilled my role of becoming a mother, something I always wanted. Since then I have not gone back to teaching but instead I am seeking an alternative route to making a difference with children and helping to earn a living at the same time. So it is now that I am looking for a nanny position.
I am interested in part-time or full-time. It is more about the right fit for my family and yours. My son is 13 months old and would need to accompany me wherever I go, so you must be open to that. He loves spending time with other kids, especially those older than he is. We enjoy spending time outdoors, reading and exploring. We would love to go to parks, museums or any other outing, so hopefully your child would like the same.
I am not yet CPR and first aid certified but am happy to do so and am looking into it with the local fire department. I have taken blood borne pathogens classes and assorted other training's through the schools and I have a food handlers card. I hold a clean driving record, have a reliable vehicle and I even have an extra almost new car seat that will seat a variety of ages.
Please let me know if you would like any farther information, I look forward to hearing from you.
