I have always loved children and working with them. Even when I was still a child, I loved sharing knowledge and joy with younger ones. Now that I am older, I find it to be even more rewarding. I have gotten more practice with discipline, which is challenging, but with the two girls I am currently a nanny for, the results are quick, and longterm, and they even thank me sometimes and tell me "I love you" just for disciplining them! It amazes me. I am looking to work for a new family, who provides a private living arrrangement, and also weekly or bi-weekly salary. I am currently in a 24 hour a week trade system, and it simply isn't enough for the quality of work I perform. I need to get ahead, and not be held back financially. This isn't about money for me, but unfortunately it is something I must consider. I would also like to have a family of my own one day, and not being able to save any earned money for things like a house or a new car, is really effecting me mentally. I do not want to go into the corporate world, however it is tempting for the security. I would rather not, of course. My love of music is definitely something I find to be useful when I have hours to entertain babies or toddlers or children. I am an expert vocalist, and I also play piano very well. I read sheet music at an advanced level, and I very much enjoy teaching and sharing all that I know. I hope to hear from you and chat with you soon! :)

Hi! My name is Charlette and I have been in nanny work and child care for the past 10 years. I have had the opportunity to work with so many wonderful families and children from the ages of 5 weeks old to 10 years old. I am an extremely loving and caring person who finds great pride in taking care of children as they are our future generation and deserve to be treated with love, kindness and taught only the best life qualities in their early years. I enjoy spending time with the children by reading, playing outdoors and indoors, arts and crafts, spending one on one quality time with undivided attention all to make sure the children are learning and having fun on a daily basis. I go to the fullest extent to make sure that not only the children are comfortable and happy in knowing they are always safe and in good hands with me, but that also the parents have comfort and confidence in knowing that also! I am looking for a full-time or a part-time position as a nanny as the children I cared for prior have grown up and attend school now. My references are impeccable and I will gladly email them to anyone upon request! Thank you for taking the time to read just a very small amount about myself and I hope to hear from you soon!

I'm 28 years old and I'm from Brazil. I used to take care of my cousins (age 1 and 3) when my uncles need work or work travel, so I know how important to take good care of kids and specially for a family. I'll take care of your children with the same love and disposition as they were my family. How I said before, I'm from Brazil, so my language is Portuguese. I came to California to study English, so right now I'm not fluent yet. For me, it is not problem and hope that it is not a problem for your family too. I would love take care of your children and learn with them. I have two college degrees, on Business and Environmental Management. I love pets, specially dogs. I love cook, go to the beach, running and walk. Actually, I love to do sports in general. So I think I'll be a good friend and company to your children. I'm patient, calm and energetic person, I can keep up with your children everyday. I'll help you in everything you need. I learn fast and I'll give you my all to execute the chores the best way possible. Hope to see you soon. If you have any questions about me, I'll be pleased to answer! Thank you for your attention.
