Full-time hours
8 yrs of experience

Thank you in advance for viewing my profile. Allow me to tell you a bit about myself. I have worked with children for over 12 years, including ages newborn to 14 years old. My experience includes long term nanny care for private families, working for a professional nanny company, working as a independent facilitator for special needs children and working as personal assistant, performing household manager like duties. 
In addition to my work experience I have taken courses in child development. I am CPR and First Aid certified. I am also Trust Line certified. 
I have always gravitated to children. I find it very rewarding to watch children grow and to be a part of shaping who they are. I value honesty, integrity and openness. I find that communication is key to having a successful relationship with the family I work with. I believe that taking care of and raising children is one of the most important jobs a person can have. My role as a professional nanny is to always make sure children are safe, happy, and secure. I also believe that in order for children to prosper they need a lot of love, attention, and affection. To describe myself on a more personal level: I am very outgoing, and silly person. I love to be outside and appreciate every moment I have. I also enjoy a good laugh. I spend most of my time with my family and try to keep things simple. 
I am currently looking for a long term position preferably full-time . I am also available all weekends, and for overnights as needed. If you are interested please contact me with your childcare needs.

We love our nanny. Our daughter is at school from 8:30 to 3:00 everyday and our son stays with our nanny all day. We would love our son to play with a child in his age range while our daughter is at school. We were considering putting him school but would love to explore this option first.
