I'm a nanny because I love being an additional positive influence in a child's life. As they say, it takes a village to raise a child and I'm happy to be another source of support. It's important to me to have fun with children as well as encourage manners, teach kindness, etc.
I have a passion for caring for children. I've been babysitting/nannying for about 7 years now. I've taken care of children from 0-12+. Years of babysitting has taught me to be more loving, nurturing, professional, educated, a better communicator, honest, respectful, and safety-conscious. I'm a college student at LACC, soon to be at Northridge, and, currently pursuing a degree in film. I work part time online editing podcasts for a few clients and doing some social media management because I really like that space and want to learn as much as I can.. I love to be outside and like taking child(ren) on daily walks, weather permitting. I like playing games, doing arts & crafts, watching movies, swimming, etc! Naturally I have a very calm, and understanding demeanor which is definitely an advantage to me in working with children because I feel very comfortable during tantrums, handling arguments, fights, etc.. I truly enjoy spending time with children and watching them grow. Being able to be another support system in a child's life is so rewarding. I still stay in touch with many of the children I took care of years ago because this is more than just a job for me. I am Trustline Certified as well as CPR/First Aid Certified.
I think it's very important to have fun, but I also believe in staying active! I love to be outside and will take your child(ren) on daily walks, weather permitting. I love sports (I played soccer and volleyball throughout my life). I really enjoy bike rides, swimming (I was on the swim team for about 4 years so I'm a very able swimmer you can trust), and all sorts of fun outdoor games (such as tag, hide and seek, etc.) I have loved doing arts and crafts since I was a kid and I'm always in for some coloring/scrapbooking/painting/etc. We can visit local museums, libraries, parks, etc.
