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.

I started as a babysitter/mother's helper when I was 11 years old and continued with the same family until I left for college. During high school, I babysat for multiple families. While in college, I worked as more of a "nanny" for one family in particular. At the time, they had a 2 year old and were expecting a baby. I cared for these children regularly until the 2 year old turned 5. I have worked with children from birth to 10 years of age, but prefer the 0-5 age group. Since college, I have completed a Master's in Child Development (2007) and have worked as an in-home behavioral specialist for the past two and a half years.

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.
