Nora C. - Seeking Work in Valley Center

16.00 / hour
2 yrs of experience

Hello there, it's Nora (Nonni) Cunningham.
A little bit about myself: I'm a very cheerful and loving individual. I have been nannying, babysitting and taking care of children since I was 15. I'm 22 now and still absolutely love caring for, playing with and helping little ones grow up to be independent, confident and truly happy. Although I have worked in customer service and retail U still prefer taking care of children. Among my usual duties at my previous nanny jobs, other than being a best friend, were playing with and teaching little ones how to be good workers/helpers, sometimes schooling and helping with homework when needed, light housework such as laundry, kitchen, picking up and engaging little ones so they can learn as well. Also feeding, bathing.....getting dirty and enjoying every minute :)
I am experienced with infants and babies as well as kids up to the age of 12. Somehow I have an endless amount of energy so keeping up with busy children isn't a problem.

I've been frequently commended for my ability for learning quickly and staying calm in stressful situations and emergencies, my patient and creative nature which makes it easy for me to come up with adventurous and exiting things to do all day long and my gentle and loving but very firm guidelines for tiny people. I am not opposed to adapting to parental discipline and family rules as every family is different but a few things I do NOT allow at ANY time is foul language, potty talk or excessive access to any electronic device such as unnecessary use of iphones, vidio games and tv. Maybe an hour a day on good behavior but little ones need to be exploring and developing their brilliant minds especially at a young age.

Anyways, if u have any other questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact me by phone or email! As for working availability my schedule is open any time between 7:30-5:30 Monday through Friday and Saturday mornings
