Nancy Z. - Seeking Work in Thousand Oaks

Full-time hours

I have found I only want to teach online in the evenings, I have been nannying for almost 8 years now and then have had two accounting positions. In terms of my happiness being with children and teaching online is optimal. I simply missed the joy and softness of chilren in my life and balance is very important. Life is about being happy not about strugling in the corporate world. My experience is with newborns to about 10 years old, though the younger age group is my favorite. It seems I have a special touch with infants and toddlers though older tikes are fine with me too. I love children and having them in my life balances out my world. Dogs are wonderfull have one of my own, but I am allergic to cats.

I was the childcare provider at my family church for 4 years. I was also a nanny for a family for a little over a year until the commute (one hour) became too much.

4 yrs of experience

I've worked with children for over 8 years now. I love it! Especially working with infants and toddlers. Besides being a nanny, I am also a preschool teacher (mainly working in the infant/toddler classrooms) so I love to incorporate plenty of educational play into my time with your child. I have many units in early childhood education and am CPR and First Aide qualified from infant to adults. Aside from being both a nanny and a preschool teacher, I am above all, a mother of my own 3 children. I believe it's important not only to meet the needs of the child but the family as well. Becoming a team with parents. Building a relationship with the entire family means so much to me. Hope to hear from you soon!
