Hi Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I've worked with children from newborn to school age. I strive on being the reliable and trustworthy extra set of hands your family may need. I have attained two C. P. R. certificates including infant CPR. I have potty trained, I have been assigned to house keep, drive, swim, and play sports. I have knowledge of sign language which is used especially with infants and toddlers. Have worked extensively on arts crafts and projects with children in various age groups. I strive to provide a balance between love and discipline where the children may learn good manners, right and wrong, rules and consequences, but also love and appreciation. Great with time management not only for the children's needs but also the family and the house I'm working with. I believe a child is a treasure and to help children develop their character is an important responsibility. It is amazing to see how children are born with their own little ways and how they go through each milestone. They look up to the adults around them as they grow, so it is important for me to be a good example to be looked up to. I've seen every milestone form the first few years of childhood but they still impress me every time. I enjoy doing crafts and other educational activities that help the children develop their motor skills and team work. I also like to teach them responsibility according to their age and maturity. I don't believe on TV being educational or healthy for a child's development therefore I intentionally keep TV to a minimum. You can be assured that your children will not have a TV for a nanny. I enjoy helping with school work and also talking about science and nature in ways that are simple fun and interesting for children. Thanks again for showing interest.

My Mother had an in-home daycare for the first 18 years of my life, so I have literally been around children since I can remember. I am able to care for children of all ages, and have experience with children of all ages. I have been a Nanny for 3 different families, and have also had numerous babysitting jobs. I have also worked in an after-school program for low in-come families, where I had a different group of children everyday and we worked with teachers on additional help with homework and other skills. I am so thankful for the experience I gained from that job. I would describe myself as a "real life Nanny" which sounds kind of funny, but I do it all. I cook, clean, laundry, emmotional break downs(haha), errands, doctors appointments, and I am always up for something that I have not experienced.

I am very flexible when it comes to hours. I have worked at a daycare/preschool for 4 years so I have a ton of experience working with newborns all the way up to preteen. I also have experience in watching children overnight as needed. I am CPR and First Aid certified. Having worked in the child care area for so long, I am used to and can easily adapt to working with children of all different personality types. When it comes to activities I prefer to be outside, or doing things that preoccupy them in an educational manner. I have experience in tutoring as well so homework help is never a problem!
