Dedicated Nanny Available For Date Nights
I've been working as a nanny for about 15 years now, with one of those years working in a preschool. As much as I liked the preschool, I missed the personal relationship formed with the families I worked for as a nanny. I've worked for 6 families, most of which I've started when their first born were infants, and then their newborn siblings who came along later. My typical day consists of lots of playtime on the floor with the baby. Along with lots of conversation, usually on my end anyway. I also love going for walks with the baby, whether it's to the library or park, or just to watch the world outside. For slightly older ones, our day is still filled with lots of floor time play, along with even more conversations! I love to introduce crafting projects and simple games at appropriate ages. I enjoy taking toddler to group classes, and more interactive places like museums, zoos, or libraries. I take my job very seriously, and my goal is to provide a safe, loving and nurturing environment for these little VIP's. I love doing this job. Yes, it's a challenge sometimes, but there is nothing like watching these little people grow and learn everyday. I would say I'm extremely interactive, playful, caring, patient and I am also very firm when it comes to safety and teaching good manners. I usually like to keep a daily log for parents, just so I can keep you up to date on the days events, accomplishments, or just funny stories. I look forward to meeting a new family who would like to create that extended family relationship with me while I care for their little ones. I am CPR certified, and recently completed the Newborn Care Specialist training course. I have excellent references and years of experience. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
