I have over ten years of experience as a private nanny, which includes experience with all ages. My volunteer experience as a mentor with Big Brothers, Big Sisters and as a team member with Family Initiative's Autism Play Group has helped me learn how to alter my care in order to support the needs of unique children and family circumstances. Furthermore, my educational background supports my expertise as a nanny and allows me to help children learn and grow in creative ways that support age-appropriate developmental milestones. Throughout my career as a nanny, I have had the opportunity to work with children of all ages, varying from newborns to teenagers. I have worked in a preschool and kindergarten classroom as well, helping with early writing, comprehension and math skills. Therefore, I am fully equipped to help your children with the development of these essential skills. I also love to create developmental plans and bring toys and educational tools with me to support your child's development. In addition, volunteering with Big Brothers, Big Sisters has taught me strategies for helping at risk youth. The child that I have been mentoring has grown in such incredible and inconceivable ways since I've started working with her. I've learned that when people have the correct support, anything is possible. My experience with Family Initiative's Autism play group has helped me learn how to modify activities according to each child's unique abilities and interests. My love for working with children continues to grow each day that I volunteer with these amazing organizations. Furthermore, my educational background complements my experiences. I have taken classes in early childhood education, elementary education and infant growth and development in the past. My certifications in American Red Cross Babysitting and infant/child CPR have helped me gain knowledge about emergency situations as well. I have also published a children's book, "The Lonely Puppy". I currently hold an AA in general education and am a senior psychology major at FGCU. Overall, I believe that my experience and knowledge about child development makes me an ideal candidate for your family.

I have worked in two childcare facilities, each for a year. The later center I was an infant care coordinator. In between, a family at the childcare asked me to leave the center in order to nanny for their 1-year-old and soon to be baby girl. I left them after a year in order to get a better education at Michigan State University but it was a very hard decision in my heart to leave them. They became my family. I am studying neonatology to become a physician but am taking a break in order to raise some college money. I speak three languages and sign language. I am certified in First Aid and CPR currently.I love children, especially infants, therefore medicine and infants gave me the passion to want to acheive my highest goal of saving lives as a neonatologist.I moved to Dallas to be a live in nanny for a family with a 6-month-old and a 6 year old. The reason I left was due to the fact that I want a family who really cares about their children's happiness and overall well-being. Also, I want a family that wants to hear about the cute things the children do or say and what activities we did and such.

I am 22 years old and I have lived in the Fort Myers area for a year now. I love kids and animals and have always enjoyed my nanny/babysitting jobs the most! The bulk of my experience with with babies, toddlers, and young children, however, I do have experience with older kids. I pride myself in caring for anywhere from 2 to 6 kids at a time and I am extremely good at keeping kids occupied and happy with games, projects, and activities. I also take pride in my ability to break up fights over the same toy, as I come up with solutions that never end in tears! I am both first aid trained and CPR certified in the state of Ohio. I have had two main nanny jobs, one for 3 years and one for two (both families moved out of/into the state). Both jobs were for younger children. I have also had many weekend babysitting jobs for children of all ages. I am a very patient and caring person. I have multiple references, which I am willing to give after you contact me (I am not comfortable putting friend/family info on the internet). I am also extremely organized and pretty good in the kitchen. I am willing to do housework, errands, and meal/snack preps. I am also great with pets and your kids will never be bored or unhappy in my care!

I'm in my 23s. This last 3 years I worked as a nanny, tutor and even as a teacher assistant for a child foundation and I can't say that is been a blast everyday because when you work with kids everyday is different but and the end is the most enrichment experience I ever had because I'm a passionate reader and kids are always hungry for knowledge.
