My training in infant care covers full care including feeding (breast milk/formula), bathing, diapering, soothing (5 S's), swaddling, holding, burping, nutrition, illnesses and more. In addition, I am aware of developmental milestones and how to stimulate and encourage learning with natural play. My experience includes caring for infants as young as one week, organizing and directing various children’s groups, filling many short-term temporary child care assignments for children of all ages and providing long-term nanny services to five wonderful families over the past 20 years. I began with Hannah when she was 6 months old and provided 3½ years of home care until she entered preschool. Our days together were filled with love, laughter and learning. I cherish my continued close relationship with Hannah and her family. Her 21st birthday is November 2017. Jake, a delightful boy, was 6 months old when I began home care. He loved singing, cars and games. Like Hannah under my care, Jake was verbally advanced for his age. Before turning two, Jake happily and successfully completed potty training. For fifteen months, I cared for children from two families simultaneously. I began with these families when their children, Madeleine and Sean, were both 6 months old. I enjoyed the differences in their development and growth. For the past three years, I was nanny to McKenzie, who was 10 weeks old when I began, and her sister, Aubrey, who was born two years ago. These sisters loved reading, singing, dancing, crafts and outdoor activities. McKenzie is excellent at make-believe play; Aubrey is fearless at exploration. Both girls are now in school and Mom is home. My goal when supplying child care services is to provide consistency and dependability. My first priority is to support the family as a whole and to help the family’s life run more smoothly. I seek to provide peace of mind and security for the family by nurturing the children in a loving, safe, joyous environment while stimulating interest and learning and promoting confidence and positive self-image. When interacting with children, I seek to provide a warm, comforting physical presence and to support individual differences and uniqueness and to encourage each child's participation. My philosophy is each day is a celebration, each hour is a wonder, each minute is an opportunity to learn. I believe that learning is fun and “there for the taking” as learning is experiencing. The point is to experience. Books, music, and exploration are great learning experiences. Later learning experiences include participation in daily personal and household activities and exposure to languages, movement, art, sports, and individual interests. I love participating with children in all these activities.

I am 22 years old; a p-t online student and an experienced nanny. I have 7+ years' experience as a background checked, CPR/First Aid certified part-time nanny/sitter. I am finishing an Associates in General Studies and my next academic goal is to return to school and begin a Bachelors in Psychology. My long term goal is to become a certified, Master's level Art Therapist for Adolescents. I have taken many specialized courses in Child Psychology, Elementary Education, and Human Growth and Development My first experience began as a freshman in high school. I was hired as a part time nanny for the same family for over 6 years. I was a caregiver of 3 boys all of whom were each 6 years apart in Throughout the years I've had the honor of becoming close to a few families, all in which their children varied in age & sex. I began babysitting in high school for a family with 3 boys, all in which were 6 years apart. I still stay in contact & especially the eldest child, who is 13. We keep each other updated on each others lives and family's. He was such a joy to watch grow & I find from personal and educational experience, the pre-teen years are the toughest to go through. I recently nannied for a family of 3 girls, similarly, all were sixyears apart! I became close friends with the eldest daughter. She seemed to enjoy & learn by having me as a mentor around.I would help the children with homework, feed toddler lunch and give each child a healthy snack after school.I also recorded our daily activities to provide information to the parent's. Every child is different & to assume their needs are the same as another will not work out on your behalf! I find it imperative to hire a caregiver that is truly responsible and attentive to the needs of your child. I am punctual and have my own transportation in order to pick up and drop off if ever needed.

During my most recent experience as a nanny, my responsibilities included: •Creating a stimulating, nurturing, and safe environment for 15 mo. old twin girls •Supervising activities at all times •Planning and preparing meals and bottles, as well as feeding •Dressing •Placing down for naps and bedtime (overnight care) •Bathing •Changing diapers (preventing/treating diaper rash) •Potty training •Performing housework related to child care, including washing the children’s clothes, cleaning up after meals, tidying play areas, and washing bottles •Teaching the children good social manners •Playing with the children, both indoors and outdoors •Planning and leading educational activities, including reading •Disciplining the children, when necessary •Driving to and from activities •Administering medicine, when necessary My overall philosophy is that child care is much more than just babysitting; it is individualized care significant to the growth and all stages of development (emotional, cognitive, social, physical and language) for your child. My educational philosophy, which is based on the theory of multiple intelligences, is that each child has their own unique learning style. For example, in my previous position as a weekend nanny for 15-month old twins, one child was a verbal-linguistic learner who thought in words and enjoyed verbal play (riddles, story-telling), whereas, the other was more visually inclined (puzzles, picture-oriented). Additionally, I provided more physical support for one and more emotional support for the other.

My mother is a Master's level Social Worker; she has worked in the field of Social Work for over 20 years. For much of my formative, adolescent, and teenage years my mother exposed me to various areas of working with families and children. I have many years of volunteerism working with children of various ages and ethnicities. I served as a role model and mentor for children and youth at the Agencies. I have volunteer experience working. My volunteer experiences at the Shelters, Resource Centers and Churches consisted of providing childcare/day care and mentoring to children of various ages. I tutored children and youth in various subjects that included but were not limited to. Math, English, Science and Art. I assisted children with computer literacy tasks such as home work, school. projects and extra curricular activities. I chaperoned youth outings into the community and was responsible for general cleanup and grounds maintenance. I have been in Georgia for going on 7 years. Four of those years I have worked as a nanny and for the past three years. I have been a caregiver working for a particular family caring for their mother in a senior facility of Sandy Springs. I feel the responsibility of caring for a elderly individual and children have GREAT similarities. Although I do feel being a caregiver most definitely outweighs the responsibility of caring for children in certain aspects, I do add my years of experience together. In addition, I was a personal cook for a family of three in the atlanta area three times a week for alittle over two years.. When the mother would go out of town for business meetings on occasion, I was fully responsible of caring for her two boys

As the oldest daughter of 5, I have been around children my entire life. I grew up babysitting children and taking care of my siblings. Once I started to attend college I would spend my summers nannying two different families. One family had two children ages 8 and 10 and the other family had one child who was 10 months. I was the nanny for both families for two years before I moved officially to Orlando to attend college at UCF. Once I moved to Orlando I got a job as a nanny for newborn twins. I have been with them for two years watching them full time during the summer and part time during the school year. I have been able to watch them start grow from just 2 months old to almost 2 years old. I have been there for almost all of there firsts and I have loved every minute of it. In December, I graduated from UCF with my Bachelors in Elementary Education and a Reading Endorsement in ages K-12th. I was hired as a full time teacher in Orange County for the remainder of the school year. As I taught, I realized that my heart was not so much in teaching but in having a personal relationship with children and being a personal nanny to a loving family. Because of my degree I am able to tutor children along with giving them the care and attention they deserve. I can assist children with homework and also tutor them over the summer in all areas.
