I have been in the professional child care field for 8 years and along with nannying for 3 different families full time, I also have lead teacher experience in a certified child development center, as well as teaching experience in the public school system. I love taking what I have learned and using it on a daily basis with the kids I am caring for. I think implementing daily educational activities into children's lives is so important; be it dramatic play by building forts and pretending we're slaying dragons & being princesses that need to be rescued, or making up weekly active learning themes, or themed sensory bins and art activities for small hands to learn fine motor skills, and even getting out and going to parks, zoos, museums, and socialization play dates. Along with learning and teaching, I have a great deal of experience with light housekeeping pertaining to the children, meal & bottle prep (and I also have experience with homemade purees), baths, laundry, homework help, and all of the workings that go into making a home run smoother for parents. I truly feel that my education, training, and experience only mean so much, but it is my compassion, patience, communication skills, honesty, and ability to find the best in every situation that makes me the child care provider that I am. I am an active member of several nanny associations and frequently attend conferences, seminars, and continuing education classes in the community.
