I have been a nanny for 17years. I stopped working for this family because they moved to another state. I worked for a family that had two children. I was responsible for feeding, playing and educating the children. We went on field trips and did a lot of crafts. The day was very organized and filled with a lot of fun. I prepared breakfast, lunch and dinner for the children. I also took them to the doctors, photo appointments and any other appointment that the parents were unable to attend. I also nannied for two boys from the ages of 2-4. I took children to park, playgroup, zoo, Library and other adventures. We did a craft everyday as some kind of educational activity.

I have worked as a nanny or teacher for over 15 years. My favorite experiences were as a full-time live-in nanny. I have taken care of ages 8 weeks through 13 years. I am a supporter of the arts, as well as the outdoors, I am an avid reader, and children's books are one of my favorite genres. I have degrees in chemistry, psychology and accounting. I worked as a nanny the whole time I was in college, so I have time management down to an art. I also have experience as a household manager and personal assistant, and have managed other employees and household services. I have traveled with the families and just with the children. I have also managed the childrens' health care and done the errands and shopping for the family I was caring for.
