I am a South African born childcare provider with over 8 years of experience in childcare, working with children of all ages, from newborn to elementary school age children.

I have experience with singletons, multiples and children in group setting of up to 20.

I believe in creating a positive, safe and happy environment for children, one in which they feel protected and can thrive. I have good organization and communication skills, which I believe are among the most important skills for a nanny. 

Furthermore, I am first aid, CPR and AED certified. Ive also completed an NCSA approved Newborn care specialist course with Gentle Ventures. I am a non- smoker and posses a current California drivers license and a reliable vehicle. I have wonderful references from previous and current employers to back up my work history.

My ancestors were from Italiy: Voglio ought to be last name.
I am passionate about early childhood education as I understand the importance of : freedom, choices and observation facilitating age appropriate to children.
I am not into task oriented day-to-day activities. Rather, I allow each child to explore the environment at their own pace: eating, getting ready (on this I practice letting them know what is the routine for the day).
My portfolio holds excellent letters of recommendation.
I hold criminal clearance and all medical documents to start work right away.
I am willing to travel. I want to make a long term commitment and full time to a family that will learn to appreciate my strong acumen in development and growth in children.
My approach to discipline is by choices; therefore the child understands natural consequences at an early age.

We're convinced we have the best nanny in California. She studied early childhood development at San Jose State and has been an amazing extra 'parent' to our 3 year old daughter since she was 4 months old. She's intelligent, kind, fair, playful and genuinely loves being around children. I think spending 5 minutes on the phone with her would make it immediately apparent why we think she's so great.

My wife and are are both busy professionals in tech and are looking for another family to share our nanny with. We would continue to operate out of our home in Menlo Park, which already has an extra crib, nice private backyard, playroom full of toys, children's potty in each bathroom, etc.

We're looking for a child close to 3 years in age who doesn't have behavioral issues like bitting/hitting etc. We of course understand that kids sometimes act up, but want to make sure our home is a safe environment for both children which is the reason we're parting ways with our current nanny share family of over 2 years.

We would like to give them 4-6 weeks notice and would plan for this arrangement to start sometime in May or early June. Care would take place in our home from 7am-5:30pm Monday-Friday and we'd split food costs, which typically are around $500/mo. If you'd rather pack meals/snacks you're welcome to do that as well.

We'd love to talk with you and introduce you to Shannon if you're in the Menlo area and feel this could be a good fit for your family and little one.
