Professional Nanny Offers All Child Care Needs
Avg response < 17 hrs
I have worked for more than 18 years as a PRIVATE PROFESSIONAL NANNY in the Aspen, Basalt, Colorado area. MY SPECIALTIES include: multiple birth children (I worked for several families with twins and triplets), I cover all aspects of AFTER BIRTH CARE including night-shifts; TRAVELING NANNY (I accompany families on their vacation trips), FOREIGN LANGUAGE NANNY (I speak German, English, Spanish and French.), EMERGENCY BACK-UP NANNY. I fill in live-in positions if the parents need to be out of town temporarily.
I offer to help out in pretty much any situation and guarantee to make a positive impact on your children and family. I am a 53-year-old German woman, mother of one adult son, age 22 who lives and studies at CU, Boulder, Colorado. I am a very experienced, reliable and truly caring Nanny. I am structured and organized as well as creative and playful. I am always focused on the children's needs on any level, emotional, intellectual as well as spiritual. I treat children with kindness and respect and praise them frequently. My challenge is to teach children to think and to feel good about themselves. My own happy and forgiving personality sets an encouraging example. I am good about setting rules and limits and I always insist on proper behavior as well as polite language. Problems and difficulties are part of life, they challenge me instead of discouraging me. Children love and respect me, because they can feel that I take them seriously and I always explain all situations and myself in an age appropriate manner. I take my children on all kinds of outside "adventures" and involve myself in our games together. I am outspoken, honest, trustworthy, well educated and absolutely able to deal with any upcoming situation and make appropriate decisions when required.
PS: I am also a very good cook and always prepare healthy and nutritious meals for the children and know how to motivate them to be good eaters. We will not spend hours in front of the TV but be engaged in games and fun-outdoors activities as much as possible.
