Full Time Nanny/Companion For Hire
I have years of experience jumping into new situations and quickly being able to function as if I've been there a long time. I have been caring for children both in my family and outside the family all my life. I ran my sister's daycare during her extended illness, and took full care of her two infants at the same time. When she eventually died, I helped finish raising her kids (teenagers by that time).
I am gentle, kind, patient and loving. I love children, and they very quickly love me. I am a fun person, from a child standpoint. I am happy to play kid games or read to your children. I could teach beginning piano (and have done it).
I am extremely creative and able to do crafts, arts, and fun activities that also provide learning opportunities for the children. One of my favorite things is making up stories with children, pulling creativity out of their imaginations.
I am an excellent cook. I make nutritious food children like to eat.
I've had CPR and first aid training.
I have been a tutor to grade school children in an after-school program (several years).
I can help with all kinds of homework.
