Do You Need A Saturday-Sunday Nanny? I'm Available Weekends And Nights
I am presently employed as a nanny 3 varying days/varying hours per week, but I'm always available for weekends and date-nights! I love to sit and play with little ones, read books with them, do puzzles, coloring, arts and crafts, and sing songs. I enjoy painting, can play guitar, as well as some piano. I can help with homework and I love to play board games. I'm also comfortable and experienced with many kinds of pets. I started out caring for groups of friend's children during weekly women's Bible studies. Later, I organized and ran children's church programs, and worked as a teacher's aide in a Christian school. When my grandmother fell ill, I moved in with her and took care of her for 3 years. In the 90's, I had my own family day care business including a preschool in my home, and also did some homeschooling with my own 5 children (all of whom are grown now) When my aging father needed assistance, I took him in with my family and cared for him as well. Through the years, I have volunteered as a Day Camp counselor, Vacation Bible School song-leader, and Girl Scout cookie Mom. Children aged from birth to 15, and elders up to age 88 were under my care. I organized and ran a large variety of activities and programs to keep them happy, healthy, and safe, kept accurate log books, dispensed medications, supervised indoor and outdoor play, prepared and served nutritious meals and snacks, and provided arts and crafts as well as musical instruction. Bookkeeping, housekeeping, and bathing were also provided at times. Transportation to and from activities, appointments, and shopping were regular duties as well. I believe I have the ability to guide, teach, and inspire young people, with kindness, temperance, and patience, as well as to provide loving companionship for elders in a respectful, loving manner.
