Katie M. - Seeking Work in Stamford

I was born into a family of 5 kids; I fall fourth in the mix. I have a little sister whom I helped raise growing up, which taught me the basics of caring for children. Outside my family,I have about 7 years of experience. I babysat for 3 families regularly. I babysat for 2 families I went to church with. One family had 6 kids (ages 0-9) and another had 4 kids (ages 0-8). I taught piano lessons to a 7 old girl that I babysat. Her mom passed my number along to a friend who then asked me to teach lessons to her 2 girls. After being their piano teacher, they hired me to babysit one night a week for their 3 kids (ages 4-7). My older sister resides in Stamford, CT and was a nanny before her daughter was born. During one of my visits to see her she let me nanny the 4 kids for a day. Their ages ranged from 5-11. It was a fun learning experience! Thinking of past babysitting experiences, I have done a lot around the houses to pick up. I often cooked lunch and dinner for the kids I babysat and got into the habit of cleaning up the mess afterwards and doing the dishes. Once I put the kids down to bed, I would usually pick up the house and put away anything the kids forgot to. I like to keep things tidy and clean.

Enthusiastic, Diligent and Caring; I am a professional nanny with over 15 years of experience under my belt, and asset to any household. I have worked with children of all ages, including newborns and twins! I have cared for children with special needs, attending to their educational and emotional needs. I truly enjoy watching the kids grow and interact with their environment. I play educational games with the children in the kitchen to teach them how to measure, read and count. I have a love for learning; can provide tutoring and homework help to school age children. I want to be able to create a trusting relationship with the kids. I take time to ask children how their day was and talk to them about their feelings. I always try to go above and beyond with every task at hand. I pride myself on being a team player, understand the make up of the household and take initiative. I told my last family I will be the mom in the 12 hours you are away from the home. I can take charge and manage the household; from arranging playdates to supervising vendors. I will do the family s laundry and will tidy up after the kids. I have a sense of responsibly that not many other nannies have. My references say, She is phenomenal. The best thing about her is her attitude. I love her work ethic. She has the ability to take instructions and is willing to do anything asked of her. She once drove two hours to get an SAT book for my niece. She is really unbelievable.
