Hi! My names Sam. I'm currently studying nursing through Metropolitan State University. I have been a full time nanny for two families located in Eden Prairie and Excelsior, Minnesota. I am CPR/First AID certified, can provide reliable transportation, and I have experience with children ranging from infants-12 years. I grew up in a big family, originally raised on a hobby farm in Minnetrista so I'm very comfortable with animals as well! My availability is super flexible/open, and I am okay with either a temporary position or something more long term! I'm hopefully looking for something more full time but I am okay with part time too :) I studied Spanish in highschool as well so I am able to tutor in that area, as well as having experience tutoring my nanny kids in math, reading, and piano lessons. I love taking kiddos outside, instead of letting them stay in watching TV or on their tablets! Im a huge fan of taking them to the park, out for walks, fairs, lemonade stands, swimming, anything that keeps them active! I also love planning fun art projects for them or anything creative and makes them explore new things. I love working in child care because children are so open minded and curious and its so cool to see that! :)

I am a 31 year old mother of two wonderful kids. My daughter is 9 and my son is 11 months. I have been in the child care industry for over 15 years now and have my degree in Early childhood education and nutrition. I am first aid and CPR qualified and have worked at a few different childcare facilities.
I have nannied for two great families in the past, both of whom had amazing children. One of my nanny kids had a moderate case of aspburgers syndrome so I am also able to work for children with special needs as well.
I live in a quiet neighbourhood right in Greenwood, two minutes away from a really fun park and a three minute drive to downtown Excelsior. I love to be outside and explore new things as much as possible. I love to read and I am a firm believer that every moment is a teachable moment.
