I have loved children since I was 12 years old. I have two boys, 21 & 17. I am currently working as a nanny for 2 families!! I enjoy engaging children of all ages in activities that are age-appropriate, educational, and fun. I use daily routine activities to instill good manners and life skills. I also can plan and prepare activities to do , too! I see things from their perspective and guide them to mature to their level of ability. I bring out the best in them as I strive to be my best for them. I am a teacher & guide to them through daily life as they lead and I join them or/ and I lead & they join me. We would enjoy indoor and outdoor activities at parks zoo museums we would read paint color play dough cook shop go out to eat sing dance water play. etc. most things kids like to do. Of course as parents agree upon. I respect the guidelines of the parents and make it clear to the child I respect all of the family. pets too!! I am patient and love the kids where they are at as I see where they need to be and steer them in that direction. I will be available in April 2016 for 2 days a week and prefer working the hours of 8-4 but this can be negotiable.
