I am a very loving and caring Nanny, that will treat your babies like they wet mine! I have extensive experience with new born twins and toddlers! I love what I do! I am currently employed with 22 month olds, who I've been with since the were 6 weeks ! I love to be busy, that's why I choose to work with twins.

I have worked with children aged newborn to 18, from healthy to gifted to those with serious illness or functional limitations, and I have loved each and every one. I have experience with multiples. Specific experience includes caring for premature infants, caring for children with serious illness, and caring for children with serious behavioral challenges, ADD and those children on the autism spectrum - as well children that have just the normal amount of challenges in this life. Through it all, I've learned to connect with and understand the child as an individual, to love, nurture, support and challenge the child's individual personality and strengths, and to work with parents, extended family and others to make each day meaningful, happy, creative and purposeful. I can't wait to hear about your own wonderful children, and to see how we might fit with each other moving forward.

I've been taking care of kids the last 2 years. I have an amazing experience with 2 boys (10 and 13) in Boston, witch I used to prepare breakfast and dinner for them, do the laundry and take and get them from school. We used to have a lot of fun together. Nowadays I'm taking care of a girl (6) and a boy (5), witch I used to do the same with the boys + give them showers, put them to bed, read books, do some arts and crafts. I love all of them so much and I want to have more amazing experiences like those. If you have any questions, I'm wiling to answer it.
