I have 5 neices and nephews that I watch about once a week including overnight and weekend visits, ages 9 months to 9. I am very laid back and good with kids, growing up I worked summer camps every summer watching and taking caring of kids of all ages. My sister and cousin both have had long term nanny positions and it sparked my interest to use my love for kids before I have a few of my own.

Switching jobs is really hard for me especially when I have so much passion watching kids. It was such excitement watching my little sailor grow up within the 4 years period I spent with them, he grew up in my arms, right before my eyes. It felt hard leaving but I had to since he was starting care and his parents didn't need my service any more. My first nanny job was quite the same as my previous job. The kids were so smart and they had such a good memory of everything I taught them. The family was relocating to Europe for sometime and so I had to look for another job. It's been so amazing working these jobs. I have experienced so much over the past few years and I am looking forward to more. I always say i have never had kids,but i am more than a mother.I believe children are a blessing and i treat them as such.I believe in the total transformation of the child and i seek to help mould them into beautiful people for the society.Thank you so much and i can’t wait to meet my next family.

I worked for a very appreciative family. They were conscientious about thanking me and telling others how much they appreciated me. I took care of a young boy with autism and his rambunctious older brother! I handled special dietary needs, toilet training, and helped create and do interactive play therapy to benefit both speech development and motor regulation. I worked hard to establish a working connection in conjunction with the parents in meeting the children's individual needs. After I would help the boys with their homework, we had reading time followed by fun time!

Hello Dear Families; I am an experienced Nanny/ babysitter with a clear driver record and background check report. I am kind, patient and responsible. I had the opportunity to work with the same family for over six years, and it was a great experience, so I can provide good references. I can prepare meal for your kids, drive them around to their activities and help them with their homework if necessary. I speak Spanish, (I am from Panama), so I could teach them some Spanish if that is okay with you. I am currently working on my Early Childhood development Degree at Howard Community College. I want to be an Elementary School teacher. My Classes are after 5 pm, so I can work during the day. I am looking for a Part time or full time job that matches my school schedule. I am ready to start this August 2015. Thank you for reading :) Yenni
