For the past seven months, I have been a 40+-hr a week nanny for a 3.5 y/o boy, and I absolutely love it. I also am the oldest in a family of 8 (soon to be 10) and frequently have had to care for my younger brothers and sisters. My youngest six siblings are all special needs adoptions, so I have a great deal of experience with adopted children, mild behavioral issues, and severe physical needs. In addition to the experience that my family gives me, I have been babysitting for around 7 or 8 years for a variety of ages and numbers of children.

I grew up in a family of seven and was a "mother figure" for my younger siblings throughout my life. Now in my late 20's, I have 2 beautiful children of my own beginning school and would love to help care for another family during my off-time! During the past 6 years while raising my children I ran a specialty bakery and catering service... so, I enjoy cooking, meal prep and baking! I love to entrain with crafts, art, reading, playtime and everything in between. When it comes to children during meals, nap time and clean up I am firm yet gentle and will go by any standard the parent sets for me. As well as my personal experience, I have been baby-sitting since the age of 15 for other families as well as helping my mother run a home day care in Vermont for 2 years. :)

I have worked over three years as a nanny for two children. I began working for the family when their son was an infant. Taking care of young children, especially babies is challenging. I have developed special skills that are useful in calming young babies, including the most restless ones. The son of my current employer, has behavior issues, and I was instructed by the child's therapist on how to reinforce good behavior and properly deal with these issues. I love children and I enjoy their company immensely. It is important to create a positive and happy environment for children in order for then to feel secure and grow as people. This includes having them enjoy their playtime. I certainly am willing to cook and clean for the children as this may be a part of the requirements. I am a friendly, loving and trustworthy person who has tremendous patience and also takes great pride in my work. References available upon request.
