I've had the wonderful opportunity of working with some great families with whom I still keep in touch and babysit on occasion. I love children! I don't have any of my own just yet but do expect to have them in the future. I would like to not only be the "nanny" but also part of the family. It is important to me to feel appreciated for all I do and feel comfortable in my working environment. I do all I can to make the children have a great time and always be safe. Which is the main thing for me. You do expect as a parent for your child to be safe and taken good care of and me as a childcare provider do expect to be acknowledged for what I do. I do give my 110%

My last childcare position lasted approximately 8 years. I cared for 2 children. The older child was 4 months old when I started. Four years later a second child was born. I cared for her from the age of 4 days old. My duties included meal preparation, and driving the children to school as well as soccer practice. On late days I prepared dinner and helped with homework assignments. I also did the girls laundry and some food shopping. I traveled with the family on vacations and day trips. Although it has been 3 years since both girls began attending school full time, I still remain in contact. I go to recitals and life events including spending time with them on holidays. They will always be a part of my life. The bond between us will never be broken.
