2 yrs of experience

My name is Jenny and my love and experience for children reaches back about 25 years. Since then, I have cared for dozens of children (including my own 4). My experience with babysitting outweighs my nanny experience, however the care is the same for both; love, patience, nurturing, creativity, fun, learning, training, helping and caring!
Not only do I have plenty of experience with all ages and stages of kiddos, but I also have spent a lot of time with children that have various special needs, such as; learning disabilities, `ADHD, ADD, eyesight or hearing difficulties, Autism, emotional struggles, rebellion, reflux, colic, and many more.
Pets and light housework are also no problem whatsoever as I enjoy maintaining a household and everything that entails.
I look forward to working with a new family that will be glad to entrust their children in my care and also call me friend:-)

I am a 35 year old kind, compassionate and honest lady that has loved working with children for the last 25 years!
I have worked with dozens of children over the years and also have four children of my own.
When spending time with kids, I love to keep them active in mind and body and engage them in meaningful play that will help them to learn and have fun! Whenever possible I also try to incorporate character training in every day activities. (For example, explaining and showing how we could show kindness to a person in need).

At this time I am available for full-time nanny work and would love to find a family that wants to work with me long-term and become close friends. Besides extensive experience in the childcare field, I also have my CPR/first aid certification along with multiple references.
Please let me know if you think I am a good fit for your family !!
