Having worked with children for the past 7 years, I have gained a lot of knowledge and valuable insight into children's physical, emotional and intellectual development. I believe that the best child development imaginable happens when children grow in the context of a loving, healthy and empowered family. While working as a nanny, I do my best to inspire, motivate and encourage children as well as their parents to make healthful choices every day. I primarily focus on a whole foods diet free of GMO's, chemical additives and pesticides, proper amount of exercise and sunshine on a daily basis. I truly believe that when adhering to a holistic lifestyle and being in tune with our body, childhood related diseases like obesity, diabetes, ADHD and allergies would simply cease to exist. When it comes to child care, I completely trust in Magda Gerber RIE philosophy that allows children to be initiators, explorers and self-learners. I believe that a safe environment, time for uninterrupted play, freedom to explore, involvement of the child in all care activities, clearly defined limits and consistency are the cornerstones of effective parenting. My hopes are that all children are accepted and loved for who they are and grow to be compassionate adults that will make a positive difference in the world.
