I have over 10 + years as a nanny/babysitter for children ages 3 weeks to middle school age. I have worked professionally in various roles, but I have realized that taking care of children is more rewarding than anything else. I have a positive, compassionate, fun-loving, caring personality that shines through when I am around children. I am also extremely patient and trustworthy. Recently, I have been a nanny for infants, and a family with a 5-year-old and a 6-year-old. Infant care includes feeding, age appropriate developmental activities (face recognition, tummy time, playing, taking walks, etc.). When the children have reached the toddler age, we work on walking, playing inside and outside, reading, and object identification. As the children get older--we play board games, go to the library, park, arts and crafts, swimming, taking walks, playing outside (sports/riding bikes). I don't have children of my own, so babysitting and being a nanny is a true pleasure for me. I love to laugh, have fun, play make-believe, build forts, any type of activities the children enjoy. As the children get older, I believe in educational activities when under my care. I help the children with their reading/writing skills and any homework from school. I don't like to watch TV when I am taking care of kids. The only time I watch TV with the children is when the kids/parents specially state they would like to watch a TV show and/or movie. I also love to be outside, whether it be taking walks with infants to playing games outside (including parks)--all are very desirable to me. Additionally, I am extremely comfortable working with multiple children of all ages. The ability to multitask is critical, especially with more than one child. I see myself as an extension of the parents. Any type of discipline, activities, etc. that the parent instills--it is my job to "mirror" the values the parents demonstrate on a daily basis. My availability is very flexible. I can work days/nights/weekends and even overnight care. I have my own car so can provide transportation to and from activities, dropping off/picking up from school, and taking "field trips". I also will help with any type of housekeeping/meal preparation/errands the family may need. I love animals of all types, especially dogs! I have one of my own--so I am very comfortable with them. I will also take care of your animals if you wish! Those families of which I have been a nanny, I still take care of their children on a regular basis. I form strong relationships with the children and families I have worked for. The children who are now school age--I have been with them for over 4 years. The infants I most recently took care of on a daily basis--are now 2 years old and I am still their main "babysitter" on the nights/weekends/overnight care. I've loved seeing them grow from the baby stage to the school age stage. I would be able to provide several references from these families, specifically, and others that I sit for on an as-needed basis. I hope to hear from you soon! Upon meeting, you will see that I have a genuine love for children and will treat them with the care and compassion that you provide every day. Thank you very much for your consideration.
