My interest as a full-time nanny is to provide a fundamental basis of parental stability while you're away from your children. In essence, to be a social & moral assistant in your child's development. In doing so, I maintain an environment of love, guidance, safety & most of all, fun! I join your personal parenting skills with my own knowledge of a child's multiple needs to create an atmosphere for mental, emotional, physical growth & stimulation. I have a lifetime of childcare insight and experience starting as a teenager assisting in the care of my six nieces & nephews and in later years, for other family members and friends. For the past three years, I've solely devoted my expertise to a nanny service & have multiple families that I've assisted ranging in age from newborns to early teens with an emphasis on preemies, twins & special needs children. In offering long-term care in your home, I also offer night nanny services, overnight stays & family travel. One of my personal pledges is to maintain optimum health, so that I can pass along good energy to children of all ages. I'm a non smoker, non drinker & uphold a high level of morals. I'm CPR/AED/First Aid and Heimlich Maneuver Certified.
