Dear Family, I am an upbeat professional career nanny. I have over 25 years of experience. I have extensive care with newborns. I also have experience with twins and with children with special needs. I have experience with children 0-16 years old. My style of childcare is very nurturing and patient. I believe in imaginary play, reading lots of books, outdoor adventures, frequent library trips, and educational T.V. programs (I love PBS). I believe children should be exposed to a variety of music and different cultures. My philosophy is “Keep children busy or they will keep you busy.” When caring for infants my routine involves tummy time including baby jazzercise, bath with daily message, reading, singing, walking outdoors when weather permits, and lots of rocking and cuddling. I teach baby sign language, and am successful with potty training. I am CPR and First Aid certified, I have a fingerprint clearance and background check. I am looking for a full or part-time, long-term position with a very loving, upbeat, and kind family. Looking for a fun happy family that likes to laugh. I also take full responsibility for the children’s laundry, meals, and dishes. I will help with pet care if needed and what ever it takes to help the family run smoothly. I look forward to hearing about your nanny needs. Joyfully, Ginny P.S. I am the author of two children’s books.

I come from a family with 10 kids. I fit in the middle and have cared for my younger siblings since I was rather young. I also cared for a young family during the summer when I was about 12. That started my true love for playing/watching kids. I continued to babysit neighbor kids all growing up and once I graduated from High School I headed off to New Jersey to be a nanny for 2 young boys, 3 and 1. I returned to my home state of Utah after a year and finished up dental assisting school where I worked at a pediatric office as an assistant. I also got married. Once I was hitched my husband and I moved to New York to nanny for a wonderful family of 4, ages ranging from 2-8. We loved it there and LOVED the kids, but were ready to start a family of our own. We returned to Utah so we could be near family where I had a little boy, and began nannying for a wonderful family of 3, ages ranging from 3-9. I worked with them for just over 3 years until we moved for my husbands job, which is what brought us to Boise. My whole life has been surrounded by children, and I hope it will continue with a wonderful family here in Boise.

I am currently a junior Business student at Boise State University studying Supply Chain Management. I am looking for a family to work for long term for the rest of my schooling. I have worked for 2 different families as a nanny for extended periods of time. I left each family once the children were older and were not in need of a full time nanny. I have had extensive experience in babysitting short term for various families with multiple children (7 was the most) and ranging all ages. i love to create a bond with the families I work for and have a relationship as almost a second family and a big sister/mentor for the children I care for. I am on an academic scholarship at BSU and can help tutor as well. Both experiences I have had being a nanny previously I cooked, cleaned,grocery shopped, picked up/dropped off kids from school, athletics, and any extracurriculars. During weekends and summer I took the children to the mall, the movies, water parks, arcades, and other fun activities that got them out of the house and allowed me to bond with the kids and keep them entertained. I would love the opportunity to work for your family and be an asset in your children's lives as they learn and grow!

I believe I am qualified for this position because of the many different families and children I have dealt with. I have been with kids that require different needs. I have taken care of children with anger issues that need to be given medication throughout the day. I know how to connect with children that are going through emotional times in their life, such as divorce. I truly enjoy being able to connect with a child and appreciate the trust they give me. I love being creative and incorporating fun artistic crafts when I am taking care of kids. I recently traveled to Hawaii with the family I babysit for. I often watch kids while their parents are out of town. I love taking kids to museums and different activities. I am a very dependable and trustworthy person and understand that each child is different and must be treated as so.
