First of all I have a lot of experience with children of all ages. I love working with children. Although children can be stressful at times, I try to be patient and understanding. I feel many frustrations that come from childcare can be avoided if we take the time to sit and listen to why they are upset or angry. I am great at multi-tasking and switching between age groups. I am honest and reliable. I feel your time is important so I will do my best to respect this by; being on time, handling small problems myself, keeping you informed about our day and any problems, and I reserve work time for work. That being said, your baby will be my top priority. Many nannies can watch children, but what sets me apart is I believe in going above and beyond for the families I work for. I keep an open line of communication with the parents and try to follow how you would be raising your children if you were at home. Being a nanny is about team work. It's about doing the best you can to help the children and parents transition from the parents leaving to them arriving. I want to make having a nanny enjoyable for both the parents and children. I am also an online college student and I feel education is important. It is important to me to include education in our everyday life and from very early. I do this through games, reading, and music. Education should be fun as well as teach us something. If you feel this is what you are looking for in a nanny, then I believe I am the nanny for you.

My whole life was spent around children, whether it was; helping take care of foster kids, watching some of my nieces and/or nephews, babysitting, or helping out. I had my first nanny position when I was 16 years old for a family with three children. I loved watching children. I have nannied for 2 other families, including a 4 and a half year term at my last position. There are so many joys to watching children. For myself, having the ability to experience life with them and helping their parents care for them makes my job enjoyable. I love being a nanny and I'd love to be yours.
